In 2013 I become the founding director of the first Gestalt Centre in Wales. This provided me with the opportunity to essentially support Psychotherapists, Counsellors and Mental Health workers to engage in accessible, affordable and quality Continued Professional Development (CPD) workshops. CPD is a required element of a psychotherapist / counsellor professional life where a minimum of hours per year be achieved to maintain skills and fulfil requirements set by professional bodies. For example United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) requires fifty hours per year and the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) membership requires thirty hours per year.
The value in such a training faculty supporting professionals to work with prospective clients to a high level and quality of evidence based practice is crucial.
Additional workshops I have facilitated in recent years:
In assisting in the Integrative Psychotherapy Training on two occasions in France between 2012-2014 gave me both an inspiring experience and valued opportunity to appreciate how in my own professional development, facilitating training courses and Continuous Professional Development workshops seemed the most natural and consolidating progression. Leaning in on my varied experience to date both within the NHS and independently in my own ongoing professional development aided this process.
In 2014 I facilitated a three day workshop in Jersey on ‘Brief and Process Focussed Therapy’. Having worked in the NHS within this model for twelve years I am passionate to convey the artistry in a brief and focussed Intervention.
