Centre for counselling and psychotherapy education

Whether you are considering a training with us or seeking help through psychotherapy, we hope our site answers most of the questions you may have. If not, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Since our establishment in 1984, we have grown to be the largest training centre for transpersonal psychotherapy in the UK, offering a range of accredited professional counselling and psychotherapy training programmes with a transpersonal and integrative orientation. We are occupying a seven storey Regency building on the banks of the Grand Union Canal in Little Venice, London.

All our courses are run by staff who are UKCP registered psychotherapists and are committed to sound ethical practice. The courses have no particular affiliations to any dogma, religion or philosophy and are open to all those sincerely interested in the field of counselling and psychotherapy from a spiritual perspective. CCPE promotes equal opportunities for students, clients and staff.

We also provide clinical services through some 100 practising therapists at CCPE. In addition we run a drop-in centre at The Caravan at St. James' Church, Piccadilly. The drop-in offers a core service of listening and emotional support, which can – by arrangement – evolve into counselling.

CCPE is a Member Organisation of both the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), providing accredited trainings for counsellors and psychotherapists.
