This year's PDS is shaping up to be the most exciting yet with lots of practical workshops covering many aspects of practice. We will be offering streams for both experienced and newer therapists, in order to give you up to date and relevant information whatever stage of practice you are in. With presenters on a wide range of topics including Self-care, Technology, Business development and Professional Skills there promises to be something for all. Throughout the day, networking over coffee, on couches and with experienced clinicians will give you more knowledge to build your practice regardless of where you are working at present. We can't wait to see you there.

To register for this year's PDS please see the registration page.
