Developing your Skills in 2021

Two Fionas

Hot Off the Press

Happy New Year

The two Fionas are writing this newsletter to you, just in the week that the UK is going back into severe lockdown and know that for so many of us and for our own individual counselling clients, this presents worrying times.  We wish you all strength, courage and good health, as you look after your clients needs, at the same time as supporting your own families.  Do please take care of you too.  Hope is on the horizon, with the vaccine roll out and we are so grateful to all the scientists and medical professionals involved.

Looking forward, we are excited for an inspiring year ahead with thought proking CPD workshops from our incredible group of trainers and working with our students as they progress through their academic studies. For those of you undertaking our training courses, we really understand how hard it can be to study in your bedrooms, kitchen tables or perched on a sofa.  Perhaps at the same time home-schooling or keeping up with your full-time roles or clinical practice.  Please reach out to your student support advisor or either of us, if you need extra advice and support.

Surround Yourself with a Great Team

Our purpose is to deliver an outstanding programme of training courses and CPD workshops for the TA and wider counselling community.  We recognise that we could not deliver such a programme without a fabulous team of people with different skills and attributes.  In this month’s blog, we reflect on the importance of surrounding yourself with a great team.

Surround Yourself with a Great Team

Expand and enhance your knowledge with our training and CPD programme. Delivered Online via Zoom, until it is safe for us to meet in person.
