< Back to directory


CCPE provide a training centre for transpersonal psychotherapy, offering a range of accredited professional counselling and psychotherapy training programmes with a transpersonal and integrative orientation.  They occupy a seven-storey Regency building on the banks of the Grand Union Canal in Little Venice, London.

All the courses are run by staff who are UKCP registered psychotherapists and are committed to sound ethical practice. The courses have no particular affiliations to any dogma, religion or philosophy and are open to all those sincerely interested in the field of counselling and psychotherapy from a spiritual perspective. CCPE promotes equal opportunities for students, clients and staff.

They also provide clinical services through some 100 practising therapists at CCPE. In addition, they run a drop-in centre at The Caravan at St. James’ Church, Piccadilly. The drop-in offers a core service of listening and emotional support, which can – by arrangement – evolve into counselling.


CCPE is a Member Organisation of both the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), providing accredited training for counsellors and psychotherapists.

The CCPE operates a psychotherapy clinic that is open Monday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Clinical services are available for couple, child, adolescent, family, group and individual psychotherapy.

A staff of 100 practising psychotherapists see approximately 50% of the clients, while the students in training see the remainder at reduced rates.
