ECS Network Day – 21st August 2022 at the Fairmile – 10am-12.30pm

Including breakfast and CPD Certificate on 

Counselling at an Agency Setting

Portsmouth Road, Fairmile, Surrey, KT11 1BW

An occasion for all the team to meet each other in a relaxed environment. It will not be a formal workshop as we are limited to about 2 hours.

Instead this is a semi-formal opportunity to discuss matters around working at the Epsom Counselling Service.

Breakfast will be provided – please let Sophie know your brunch menu choice and RSVP by 21st July

A CPD certificate will be available for those who would like one. The breakfast and discussion will count as 2.5 CPD hours.

For those who aren’t easily able to get to the destination, then either pick up or cabs can be arranged from either Oxshott or Surbiton stations (paid for by ECS).


The ECS is committed to providing opportunities for counselling and psychotherapy professionals to continue their personal development.

Every “toad” needs a “heron”…

Many practitioners will be familiar with Robert de Board’s book, “Counselling for Toads” which used the character Toad, from the novel Wind in the Willows, as a client in therapy, with his counsellor called Heron.

The theme suggests that as we grow we learn about self and our relatedness to others, noting the powerful influence of past relationships and their possible impact presenting in the here and now.

As adults, we can choose to learn, pro-actively, more about our inner self and the outer world. This growth can be reparative.

Learning is a lifelong task – and is an active process.

Details of forthcoming events that may be of interest to professional practitioners can be found on the seminars, workshop and lecture page as well as in Therapy Today. A CPD certificate will be available (as appropriate) for those practitioners that request one.
