Although the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) training for qualified therapists is not currently running, when it re-starts it will require that all therapists have completed the following training:
-1 x Lucid Dreaming weekend workshop
-1 x Lucid Dreaming intensive retreat (3 or 4-day sleepovers)
-1 x 7 Week online lucid dreaming course
-5 x Fully lucid dreams
Some of the key topics that the CPD training will cover:
- Full in-depth training in how to offer lucid dreaming techniques in 1-on-1 settings and to small groups (this will make up 70% of the course)
- Role play scenarios to test out and practice our skills with each other.
- Each participant presents a 15 minute TED talk style talk to the group on a lucid dream topic.
- Guest teachers including qualified psychotherapists will give presentations on safeguarding and how to implement lucid dreaming skills into ones practice.
- Learning modules include: lucid dreaming, guiding hypnagogic mindfulness sessions, nightmares, insomnia, sleep hygiene and other frequently presented conditions and how to help clients with these.
This CPD training meets the CPD requirements of British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
In 2019 I ran my first ever Continuing Professional Development (CPD) training with a group of qualified psychotherapists, mindfulness teachers, psychologists, hypnotherapists, health care professionals and educators.
This first group of 17 graduates have all done over 100 hours of training with me and I am happy to personally recommend them all.They have a diverse range of skills between them but the unifying theme is that they are all trained in how to share and teach lucid dreaming.
Please check out their work and feel free to get in contact directly with them through the links below.

Jane Weston is a teacher and trainer of Mindfulness of Dream and Sleep and Lucid Dreaming. Jane has been a Buddhist for forty years and her experience and practice of mindfulness training spans that period.
Jane’s Foundation course will particularly benefit those suffering from insomnia, coronasomnia and sleep disturbed by anxiety or trauma, by teaching how to relax more deeply while awake or asleep and training us to be mindful of what is happening in the present moment during the states of going to sleep and waking up. We then explore the dream state and how to become lucid within it, learning about nightmares, dream signs and the potential to heal ourselves. Jane welcomes beginners in dreamwork and those who have some or no experience of mindfulness practice.
Jane studied Social Anthropology at Cambridge University which gave her a life-long interest in the beliefs of cultures other than her own and particularly their medicine, religion and philosophy. Jane is a long term student of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche who was a recognised Dzogchen Master and practitioner of dream yoga, teaching in the tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.
Hi! My name is Eline and I facilitate spaces to thrive, using dance, nature, stories, shamanic techniques and of course lucid dreaming! I combine my passion for anthropology, culture, symbols, spirituality, movement and embodied inquiry, personal growth and community.
My academic background includes cultural and medical anthropology (BA, MA), bridging my a strong interest in dance, healing and spirituality – which in many cultures are closely connected. In my PhD I looked at the influence of dance on empowerment, healing and spirituality. I work as a part-time Research Fellow at the Centre for Dance Research, Coventry University, where I continue to deepen my understanding of these areas.
Alongside my academic training, I studied in-depth with the Scandinavian Center for Shamanic Studies and the School of Movement Medicine, a contemporary shamanic dance practice. These two strands inform my background as a shamanic practitioner, dance facilitator and also ceremonial leader.
Monica Varo, a qualified practitioner of hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, and counselling.
I am also fully trained in NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming). My belief is that every client is an individual; unique in their needs and aspirations, as well as deserving of respect, empathy and confidentiality. So as an experienced therapist with a wealth of techniques in many areas of therapy, I tailor each session to the needs of my client.
Whether a person is seeking change, improvement, or acceptance of aspects of their life, I always work with what the client brings and together we set about achieving the outcome they desire.

Based in Bristol, UK, Rosanne Jacks has been interested in dreaming and lucid dreaming for as long as she can remember. With an honours degree in Natural Sciences with Earth Sciences from the Open University, teaching Introduction to Lucid Dreaming workshops combines her two passions of science and spirituality.
Her workshops focus on the techniques for achieving lucidity, the benefits of lucid dreaming and how participants can harness those benefits to enhance their waking lives. Groups are small so that everyone gets plenty of individualised attention for their own specific needs and issues. Rosanne is half Spanish, half American and offers workshops in Spanish as well as in English.
