What our members say

"A very versatile, convenient and reasonably-priced way of engaging in high quality CPD, without compromising the excellent standard of the speakers" Jenny, MBACP Accred

"Webcasts are an effective way to access valuable knowledge, the experiences of others and to stay more in touch with the BACP." Simon, MBACP

"Very easy to navigate. I found it just as good as attending in person on the day. Very enjoyable." Eileen, MBACP

"If time away from work or home, or if expense is an issue, or you cannot travel to the live venue, the online webinar is the next best thing. Worth their weight in gold! Accessible after the event too as and when you please. Excellent!" Elaine, MBACP

"They are highly relevant to topical issues and current practice. They are also good value for money and offer the flexibility to undertake CPD when it is convenient for us." Elizabeth, MBACP
