CPD Certificate in Psychotherapeutic Counselling and Boxing

The course explores the niche of counselling and psychotherapy with boxers and is the first of its kind. The course is designed for therapists to have a greater understanding of the culture of boxing and its greater diversity. To work in the field of boxing it is important that the rigours of their world are understood.

The course is designed for qualified practitioners of psychotherapy and counselling, logotherapy, coaching, psychology, and supervision who work from a range of counselling models. This is a highly suitable course if you would like to develop additional knowledge in this specialised area.

"The mental health of boxers has for too long been neglected, so any course designed to deal specifically with boxers should be welcomed."
Ben Dirs, Boxing Writer.
