I run network groups with a mix of trainees, newly qualified, and experienced counsellors. This is a great way to gain experience and an affordable one too! Ask if any are available that would suit your times.
Services I Offer
I facilitate group therapies in Essendon, Hatfield. The group will consist of between 5 and 9 people and meet on a weekly basis t the same time every week.
Group therapy is a powerful way to gain insight into not only how others affect you but also how you affect others! Each member brings different strengths to the group and the support comes not just from the therapist but from the other group members. Being a member of the group takes commitment and a pledge to attend regularly.
What to expect:
Typically the group would be seated in a circle, in the same location every week with a group leader, usually a Psychotherapist or Counsellor. He/she will facilitate an environment that’s safe and confidential where group members can test out new ways of reacting to people.
Group therapy members may need to have several assessment sessions before joining the group.
Sessions will be weekly, lasting an hour and a half and cost will be £25. Please email or telephone for more details.
Supervision is a crucial part of our client work. I specialise in supervising trainees and newly qualified people or those setting up in Private Practice. I am a firm believer that the less experienced you are, the more experienced you need your supervisor to be. I offer a FREE 30 minute, introductory supervision session to counsellors, supervisors and those in emotionally demanding jobs.
Although supervision is a requirement of a counsellor’s ongoing professional development and required as part of a counsellor’s membership to the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and other organisations, Barristers, Social Workers, Solicitors and Doctors have also found it very useful.
Finding the right supervisor is crucial and trainees can feel vulnerable starting to see clients for the first time. I provide an opportunity for you to meet me and perhaps present a case. This enables you to see how you feel I work before you decide if you would like to work with me on a permanent basis. You can sometimes extend the 30 minutes once you are here if we both have the time but that would be chargeable.
I also run group supervision sessions at an affordable price. This makes them ideal for trainees.
Reductions are available during the day for trainee therapists needing counselling in line with course requirements and on low income. Finding the right supervisor is crucial and trainees can feel vulnerable starting to see clients for the first time.
Fees for supervision are £55 per 45 minute session.
