NCS | New Online CPD Course - Ethical Practice

We have officially changed our name to the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society!

Information for members

As of the 15th of May 2023, we have officially changed our name to the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society (NCPS).

Our new and improved website is coming soon!

Further to the launch of our new Code of Ethics in January 2018, the Society is delighted to announce that we have created a new Online CPD course designed to complement the Code.

Ethical Practice has been designed by the NCS with the aim that it will better enable you to use our Code of Ethics to support your practice.

It does not pretend to offer the ‘right’ solution to every problem and dilemma, but we hope it will stimulate your own thinking about ethical practice and enable you, with the support and guidance of your supervisor, to feel secure in offering your best work to your clients.

This course is being offered free to members of the National Counselling Society until the 31st of May 2018. After this date, the course will cost £15.00. To access the course for free, visit our newsletter located in the members area of our website.

Those who complete the course will be awarded a certificate for 4 CPD hours.

Benefits of studying online

Online courses are growing in popularity because they are an easy and practical tool allowing professionals to meet their professional body’s requirements for CPD hours at a time and pace that suits them.

Studying online and at your own pace means that you can take the time to digest the information that’s being presented to you, and as a result really make the most of the activities and training tools the course offers. You can also either review the content again and again until you’re happy you fully understand it, or you can move to the next topic as soon as you need to without having to wait for other students.
