About Us



Our Story
The last few years have witnessed a number of changes in the fields of psychotherapy and counselling. Neuroscientific advances have corroborated a number of psychodynamic ideas, practitioners have increasingly started adopting more integrative approaches to therapy, while time, as well as monetary constraints have prompted a search for newer, efficacy proven, models of psychotherapeutic work. We wanted to do things differently from the very start – offer access to new ways of working, cutting edge research and clinical thought to practitioners around the world, unfettered by ties to a particular discipline or modality. To this end, we have delivered more than 400 seminars, workshops, online webinars and conferences to psychotherapists, psychologists, counsellors and psychiatrists worldwide and remain committed to providing world-class, practical content over the years to come.
Our Philosophy
As an organisation and a team, we are committed to ensuring that our conference delegates have access to the best therapeutic tools and techniques available today, in any part of the world. To this end, we continue to ensure that world-class content gets delivered at our events, through both offline and online means, in the form of continuing professional developmental (CPD/CE) programmes, delivered by globally renowned experts; such that psychotherapists, psychologists, counsellors and psychiatrists feel supported and intellectually challenged at each training interaction.
Our Vision
To provide world-class, cutting edge, continuing professional development programmes for mental health professionals around the world.
