Setting up and Developing your Private Practice
This experiential workshop is for both new and developing practitioners and will focus on how to convey your uniqueness as a counsellor or therapist to your prospective clients. The practical aspects of advertising, dealing with taxation, legal issues and contracts will be covered and you will have the opportunity to create your own flyer. The format will provide information and allow for discussions and small group working to give you space to decide how to develop your practice. Do look at some counselling web sites, and bring your local Yell or other advertising directory on the day.

is a Gestalt Therapist of 21 years’ experience from Hampshire and a member of UKAHPP and UKCP. She has trained students on counselling Diploma and Degree courses and worked as an independent trainer at home and abroad.

Group Process
This workshop will be of interest to individual practitioners wanting to develop group practices, and for others to review their work with groups. To lead groups effectively, the facilitator needs to develop a strong sense of the process a group goes through over time and therefore needs to develop his/her own understandings both at a theoretical and also practical level. He/she works at a variety of levels, the individual/intrapersonal level, the inter-personal level and group level, as well as being connected to his/her own self-awareness. He/she carries a multitude of agendas. These skills are often additional to those acquired in one-to-one training and practice. The day will include a review of key process skills, self-awareness, theoretical input on Humanistic approaches, and key issues and pitfalls that arise, with potential interventions.

John Gloster-Smith is a Gestalt-trained facilitator, coach and leadership consultant, with wide experience in Personal Development in organisational settings and in open workshops.  He is a UKAHPP accredited Educator and Group Facilitator.

Fundamentals of Supervision
This taster day with two experienced supervisors presents a review of the basics of supervision. It is open to both supervisees and supervisors.As practitioners committed to providing the best possible experience for our clients, supervision takes a central role.  In the mutual undertaking that is supervision, the supervisee can experience a space for replenishment, reflection and insight.  For the supervisor, working with client material at one remove fosters an instructive objectivity which is naturally unavailable in his or her own client work. We welcome practitioners who are

  • Training or working as psychotherapists or counsellors
  • Considering becoming a supervisor
  • Already practicing supervisors

The workshop will include exploration of concepts, experiential practice and time for questions.

She trained initially in the US and then returned to England to co-found with her husband the first centre for Humanistic Psychology in Europe, Quaesitor.
