The Humber Counselling and Psychotherapy Conference would not be possible without support from our hosts Ellesmere Counselling and Psychotherapy Training, and our sponsors. Please support our sponsors to show your thanks.

The Ellesmere Centre provides UKCP accredited Training in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

The centre has built a reputation for excellence in training and service provision over 18 years and prides itself for being a welcoming and inclusive environment.

We are a registered training establishment and provide many courses from introductory level workshops to certificate level counselling courses and a four year training in Transactional Analysis.

We are very proud to be hosting the second Humber Therapy Conference and would like to thank the conference team and all contributors for what we know will be a fantastic event!


Back for a second year are our colleagues at Space2BHeard

“Space2BHeard is a trusted people-led wellbeing service shaped by our staff, volunteers and clients. Our shared aim is helping people to stay well by offering a positive environment that enables choice, improves experience and addresses mental health needs locally.

We do this through delivering Mental Health Services, Therapeutic Interventions and Wellbeing options through working in partnership with the VCSE community, statutory services and local businesses.

It is essential to us that we deliver the highest quality service to our community, with our core values at the centre of our work. We take pride in our ethical approach, ensuring our business provides a safe service to everyone.”

Talking Works

We would like to welcome back as a a sponsor Chris Colcomb of Talking Works.

Chris provides counselling, psychotherapy and coaching in Cottingham, Hull and online. Chris said that “individuals come to see me for a variety of reasons. Some people are in crisis with their mental health or have suffered some kind of trauma. Many others want to understand themselves and gain some context to their lives. Then there are those who are stuck, want get out of a rut and work towards new goals. I can help.

I use a blend of counselling, psychotherapy and coaching approaches to assist all of my clients. My experience has always been to provide the approach which works best for you. That’s why I use the phrase ‘Talking Works’ – together, we do the kind of talking that works for you.

My way of working is that I focus primarily on building a strong, safe and supportive relationship with you. This then allows us to do the work together that you need – to get past your problems and to move towards what you want instead.”

Welcome once again Chris. Thank you for your ongoing support.

We are very excited by the addition of Kardia Consultancy to this year’s lineup….

Kardia Consultancy is all about Getting to the Heart of the Matter!

Facilitators Hayley Johnson and Stewart Scarr offer In-company Training to organizations looking to invest in the potential of their teams and the people they employ.

Character isn’t set in stone but shifts over time. Our goal is to help people make those shifts quicker and more positive than they’d otherwise be.

As HeartStyles Associates we first take a snapshot of behaviours using an Indicator Tool. This gives an indication of how we are “showing up” to others. We then tailor our training and individual coaching sessions to ‘activate’. This is where our facilitators work closely with participants to build the practical skills they’ll need to leave ineffective behaviours behind.

“The impact of Heartstyles on the culture of our company has been an eye opener to say the least. There was an openness that never existed before, there was a freedom of speech, there was an awareness, there was a caring that we haven’t seen before and I can only say that comes from the Heartstyles training.”

For individuals wanting to improve their personal, as well as professional, development we also run several Resilience Retreats throughout the year!
