CPD Events for Qualified / Trainee Counsellors
As well as working in private practice, I am also a qualified teacher with years of experience providing training for Counsellors. I have worked with groups at every level and occasionally enjoy hosting bespoke CPD events. All events are designed to enhance, challenge and develop current practice and CPD Certificates will be issued to all attendees. All workshops run subject to minimum numbers.
Counselling as a Learning Process – Differentiation for Counsellors (Places Available)
Date: 24th Feb (1-4pm) Cost: £30/person For: Qualified / Trainee Counsellors
For some years now I have split my time between Counselling and training others to do the same. I have been struck between the similarities between learning theory and therapeutic process. I believe that the latter can, in many cases benefit from an understanding of the former. This workshop explores the relationship between therapy and learning and encourages a therapeutic approach that has differentiation as a guiding principle.
Transactional Analysis – A short introduction to key concepts (Places Available)
Date: 24th Mar (1-4pm) Cost: £30/person For: Qualified / Trainee Counsellors
This short workshop has been designed as a brief introduction to Transactional Analysis (TA). We will identify key concepts from the model, consider the ways in which TA’s principles compare to our own understanding of theory and explore some methods of applying this interesting theory in practice.
Existence Precedes Essence – Existential ideas in Counselling (Places Available)
Date: 26th May (1-4pm) Cost: £30/person For: Qualified / Trainee Counsellors
Existential Counselling draws upon the ideas of philosophy (namely Existentialism!) as a way of understanding human motivation, growth and stuckness. Not so much a structured, prescriptive model the approach instead draws from several fundamental beliefs; which we explore. We will also look at how this can be applied in practice.
Taking clients outdoors – An introduction to Walking Therapy (4 Spaces available)
Date: 2nd Jun (10.30-3pm) Cost: £40/person For: Qualified Counsellors
This workshop has been designed for qualified Counsellors who are considering moving their work outside, and offering ‘Walking Therapy’ to their clients.
We will look at the psychological benefits of working outdoors. We will also discuss the practical and business implications of working outdoors in what can be at times an unpredictable and changing environment. As part of the work will venture out and take a walk either along the canal in Hythe, or up towards the seafront, so you will need to bring your walking shoes!
As with all my workshops, refreshments will be provided throughout the day, but you will need to bring your own lunch!
