Coming Soon! Hope Valley Therapist Training


We’ve recently had a flood of requests for therapist training to work with clients who have suffered in cults. A suite of Hope Valley programmes are now in development - suitable both for therapists looking for an introduction to the area and also those interested in extended CPD learning to be equipped to work with the Post-Cult Counselling model.
Supervision or consultancy is also available for therapists requiring support.


Register your interest by emailing us below, and we’ll keep you up to date regarding the training.
