Team Development

Members of CSTD Bath have offered team development since its inception in 1979. Frequently teams decide that they need facilitation when a crisis occurs. However, our experience and our belief is that ongoing team development will usually prevent a team being crisis-driven and help to promote effective team working.

Our approach is to build on the strengths of the team and its members and to encourage a spirit of enquiry and appreciation.

Centre staff can work with management or with the team to set up a suitable programme ranging from one day events to ongoing work.


In-house Provision of Courses

It is possible to employ the Centre for a single course or the full certificate. Some employers prefer to provide one module leaving staff free to choose to complete the rest of the programme.

Continuing Professional Development

Teams and Organisations and Working with Difference are specifically designed to be taken as CPD courses. In addition to this, the modules that make up the certificate course may be taken individually as continuing professional development with the exception of the last module, Supervision Integration.


I waited a long time before choosing a Supervision training course. I wanted a course that would both recognise and synchronise my skills and therapeutic approach in a respectful manner that encouraged the integration of the theory and skills being taught. CSTD supervision training offered me respect and recognition and the training builds on a firm and clear relational base. The arrangement of modules allowed me to structure my time and progression to qualification with ease and confidence. I would highly recommend this training programme.

One of the elements that drew me to CSTD's course was their process approach to supervision. This is central to the training as is the commitment to experiential learning. It is a training that has prepared me well to supervise professionals and volunteers outside counselling and psychotherapy communities, especially in the voluntary sector.
The tutors and different groups I met provided a helpful balance of challenge, validation and encouragement. The building and grounds offer an atmosphere of calm containment; quite beautiful and a wonderful resource for professional and personal growth.
