CWR (under the banner of 'Waverley Training and Events') has pioneered Christian pastoral care and counselling training for over 30 years.
Our wide range of courses provides training for those with a heart to help others at every level.
The distinctive feature of all our courses is that they are based on a firm biblical foundation, integrating biblical understanding of the human personality with the best contemporary models of counselling.
If you are thinking about taking a first step into pastoral care or counselling training, the best place to start is the Introduction to Biblical Counselling course.
All courses are held at Waverley Abbey House, Farnham, Surrey, UK unless otherwise indicated.
If you would like to ask any questions about counselling training, please call us on +44 (0)1252 784731 during regular business hours or email us.
