Continuing Professional Development

Gain Insights Into Your Reflective Practice

Our popular online Creative Path CPD course is run by Jan Hall and Delphine Spencer, making use of creative techniques to help you access experiences at a sensory level that can act as a bridge to the unconscious, offering new insights in your own reflective practice and in your work with clients – whatever your professional approach. In a small, closed group of fellow mental health professionals from varied modalities and backgrounds, we will meet for a monthly creative-informed skills CPD workshop.

You will personally experience creative techniques and interventions that can prevent sessions from getting stuck, create a sense of safety, help your clients to develop self-definition and self-regulation, establish boundaries, and much more! In addition to this, you will receive supervision and ongoing support to boost your confidence in safely utilising the techniques and interventions with your clients. Creative Path is ideal for psychotherapists, counsellors, IAPT practitioners, social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists, case managers, addiction counsellors and other mental health professionals.

What People Say

    "The course has become something I very much look forward to, as a haven for self reflection, connection and joy, in addition to learning and growing. I have grown less self conscious about what I can produce creatively, as there is never any pressure to share- only encouragement to use the exercises and the space to understand ourselves more. I'm very grateful for the nurturing space that the facilitators have created for us as attendees, both in the guided workshops and in the support they provide."


    Therapist & Creative Path Participant

      "I have thoroughly enjoyed the workshops as it gives me time to reflect, relax and focus on me. The course directors are engaging, sensitive and my views and thoughts are listened to and I leave the sessions feeling lighter and positive, There are times when through artwork I have to expose my vulnerabilities and fears but I feel extremely safe in my group where all the members are caring and understanding, I would highly recommend this workshop for therapists and counsellors alike as it is refreshing to have a place to go where you can take off your armour and just feel safe."


      Therapist & Creative Path Participant

        "The tasks are varied and stimulating and provide a supportive platform for me to journey within myself. The group dynamics work because I can feel that I can be myself within the group and not be judged or cast out. There is a perfect balance of seriousness and fun and laughter. Even though at times we might be exploring difficult issues and delving into triggering situations and trauma maybe, with you two at the helm it feels safe to do so. I find the space full of women of colour inspiring and very much needed. I strive and thrive to have more spaces like this where we can let down our load/ burdens and know we will be held and supported and loved. Thank you for creating this space of exploration, creativity and wisdom."
