Course Feedback


I really found this training helpful.

It was great to do it at my own pace, and to come back to things whenever I wanted to. The suggested reading and resources were also helpful

I loved this training with Chris. I’ve learned a lot, and feel more confident in how to apply CFT to my patients now

TJ, Clinical Psychologist 


I really like how this training was broken down in to different modules. It made it easy to engage with, and to hold in my mind the different things that I was learning. 

I also really liked Chris’s style, even though it was a recording

Samina, GP


I’ve done a little bit of CFT training before, but I found this really helpful in deepening and adding to my knowledge.

I’m really looking forward to taking what i’ve learned in to my work

Sanjay, Psychotherapist 


Thanks for such an amazing workshop. I had some knowledge about CFT before, but feel like i’ve not only deepened that, but also added lots of new ideas, ways of explaining the model, and ideas about how to use some of the key practices

Misha, Coach


I found this training really good value, and easy to access. It was great to be able to take my time and keep watching over some of the material when I needed to.

Highly recommended!
