We run an annual conference about psychological therapy services each year in November. We also hold two peer reviewer training days for APPTS members per year.

The eighth Psychological Therapies Annual Forum will take place in December 2022.

Date: Friday 2 December 2022

Time: 10am – 4pm

Location: Online (Zoom)

Cost: Free for staff working in an APPTS member service, service user or carer representatives, £25 for students and £55 for staff working in services that are not signed up to APPTS.



This training session will qualify you to become professional APPTS peer reviewers and visit other therapy services across the UK.

It will prepare you for the role of peer-reviewer, and build skills in group facilitation and delivery.

Once qualified, attending reviews is a great membership benefit for staff and managers, as you will:

  • gain useful experience and knowledge of how therapy services are managed and run
  • network with other services and share good practice
  • develop deeper insight into how services are experienced by staff and service users.

Training dates

1 March 2023 (10am-11.30am).
