Free Online CPD for Welldoing Members

Welldoing members can access free certificated online CPD at our weekly Lunch and Learn sessions

  • Expert therapists and authors are interviewed for the first 30 minutes, then attendees can join the Q and A for the second half of the session
  • All sessions start at 1pm and finish by 2pm. Pre-booking is essential to enter the Zoom call.
  • Sessions are held on Wednesday or Thursdays at the same time
  • Certificates for individual sessions are available for each session
  • Currently recordings of the sessions are not available, though this will be possible in 2024

How to book

To attend any upcoming events for free, you must be a Welldoing member, either a therapist or coach. All the details about joining can be found here

Members can email [email protected] with the date of the session in the subject line. You will be sent a Zoom link to the event on the morning of the session. 

If you are a therapist, but not a member of Welldoing, you can now buy a ticket to individual Lunch and Learn sessions through Eventbrite. You will be asked to provide us with proof of your professional membership (eg BACP, UKCP, NCPS, etc) and you will receive a certificate if you attend. 

What our members think

The CPD sessions have been very popular with our members:

"I find these sessions thought provoking and informative and find myself revisiting counselling relationships past and present to see how I can improve and support my clients better."

“We are able to talk freely and share our thoughts and feelings about so many important and interesting subjects.”

"Thank you for putting these on - I have referred a couple of clients to therapists who have been interviewed here amongst finding the information invaluable in general."

“I benefit greatly from being connected to a larger and bigger force through Welldoing. I am so grateful for these gatherings, thank you Welldoing.”

“Lunch and Learn is a brilliant initiative - very well managed between speakers and questions and really thought-provoking. It’s a focused, bite-size piece of learning that that easily fits into the day.”
