Information for Counsellors and Therapists

Workshops and Training Days

Workshops and training days are held approximately six times a year, three in the Spring and then three in the Autumn. These are highly popular and well supported by counsellors, students and therapists across the county. We aim to keep them relevant to general practice, affordable and diverse, with some new and less usual topics, and a fresh approach to the more standard ones. As such, we are now becoming a central point of reference in Kent for training and discussion as well as specialisms.

All courses cost £70 00

Please contact us 01634 851558 or if you would like to be added to our workshop contacts lists, or if you would like full information on the above workshops.


We can provide supervision for counsellors with fully qualified supervisors.

Case Discussion

A small case discussion group is held monthly, this is a closed group. If you would be interested in joining a Case Discussion group please contact reception and we can put you in touch with Angela Wallace, who facilitates the groups.

Room Rental

We have around 26 fully qualified, insured counsellors and psychotherapists working from St Barnabas House. They are all supervised and are members of the BACP or UKCP working in accordance with the Ethical Framework of those organisations. Our policy for new counsellors who want to start a private practice is that they meet the requirements above and preferably have worked for approx 2 years ‘in the field’ so have some experience. This policy is there for a newly qualified therapist’s protection. Experience under the safety of an umbrella organisation is preferred. If a counsellor/ psychotherapist is looking to move into private practice and would like to arrange an appointment please call Juliet Wallace – 01634 851558.

Meeting Rooms to Hire

In 2017 we took over the ground floor of the premises at St Barnabas House. We needed to do some serious renovation and take two walls down to make the building into one again, after years of being separated. This has given us the opportunity to develop and grow as a business. We can now offer 2 rooms for meeting, presentations, workshops and group work. With kitchen and bathroom facilities adjoining both rooms it is an excellent space for large groups (20 people).
For prices for either or both of the rooms or to request more details please call 01634 851558
