As an innovative Northwest Based Counselling and Training Service, we aim to offer a professional, ethical and affordable Counselling service which can be accessed quickly and privately, and which will not compromise on the quality or the experience of your counselling relationship.

We offer counselling for individuals, couples, young people and adolescents, with many of our referrals contacting us directly, whilst also working successfully with a number of national organisations wishing to enlist the services of our counsellors.

In addition to our counselling service, we have been providing an extensive, up to date and evolving Continuing Professional Development Service for Qualified and Students Counsellors, wishing to enhance their practice and knowledge by gaining invaluable skills and experience.

All our trainers and speakers are highly experienced professionals and share a continuing passion for enhancing the practice of other helping professionals, by sharing their wealth of knowledge and experience, and importantly providing a relaxed and enjoyable forum for learning.

Due to the success and demand for our Continuing Professional Development training programme, it seemed like a natural progression to extend our programme Nationwide and to include conferences for a range of helping professionals wishing to access further development and knowledge in the presence of prominent speakers, who specialise in their field.

We hope that you enjoy visiting our site, and also you may wish to browse not only both historic and future events at MCTC, but also find of interest the various developments of our service.

Certificate in Counselling & Psychotherapy Supervision Training | September 10, 2016

Thinking about training to be a supervisor? Not sure quite what model or form of training you would like to embark on, or how you imagine that you would be as a supervisor?

Taking the next step into learning to be a supervisor in order to supervise the practice of other counsellors and psychotherapists can often feel for many individuals a natural evolution and progression into a supervisory role; a role and relationship that often is highly rewarding and inspiring for both the supervisor and supervisee.

By the very nature of some of the core functions of supervision which often involve a managerial, supportive and educational function, it quite naturally requires from the supervisor a higher degree of responsibility, a readiness to learn a new process and a firm grounding and understanding of your core role.

The Certificate in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy Supervision is a 13 day/ 6 unit course undertaken over 7 weekends, in a relaxed and relational learning environment, where facilitating both the required theoretical knowledge and development of the essential core skills, methodology and philosophy is undertaken by qualified and experienced supervisors.

Presented by: Helen Rose: MBACP (Accred.) Therapist, CPD Trainer & Supervisor. BA Hons Coun. PG Cert Supervision. Cert Teaching. EMDR Therapist Level 1 -4.

Helen is co owner of Macclesfield Counselling & Training centre and practices as both a therapist and supervisor with over 15 years experience of working in further education as a tutor and higher education as a university lecture, on a BA Counselling Studies programme. She now dedicates much of her time between co managing Macclesfield Counselling & Training Centre and sharing her professional experience by managing and delivering continual professional development programmes for counsellors and psychotherapists both within the centre and with other organisations.
Presented by: Judith Robertson: MBACP. Counsellor, Supervisor & Diploma Tutor. PG Cert Supervision. Dip Coun. Cert Teaching. NLP Master Practitioner

Concepts and skills in Motivational Interviewing: Two day course. | January 20, 2017

Motivational interviewing is a directive but also client-centered counselling style for eliciting behaviour change by helping clients to explore and resolve ambivalence and resistance to change.

Initially a concept and approach which has been deemed very effective when working with individuals affected and experiencing addicted behaviours, it is an approach which when facilitated effectively has a subtle balance of directive and client-centred components. shaped by a guiding philosophy and understanding of what triggers and can elicit effective change.  Widely used when working with clients who wish to moderate or control specific behaviour changes, this empathic and sensitively elicited approach, has proved highly effective when working therapeutically to enable clients to motivate and identify areas of change.

Within Motivational Interviewing the examination and resolution of ambivalence is its central purpose, and the counsellor is intentionally directive in pursuing this goal., when ambivalence takes  the form of a conflict between two courses of action (e.g., indulgence versus restraint), each of which has perceived benefits and costs associated with it.
