What we're about
Do you need to have more contact with other professionals, beyond lunchtimes at CPD events or chats at the coffee machine?
This is an opportunity to meet in a small informal group with an open structure but with the purpose of providing you with the chance to discuss any issues that come up in our work.
We create the agenda each time, possibly as we go. We’ll start the meeting with a ‘check-in’ space (‘how are you this evening, and is there anything you’d like to discuss?’). If we’re still stuck for things to talk about I’ll provide a ‘lucky dip’ with some open questions to help us launch our discussion.
I don’t know what the vibe will be like because each meeting is a unique one-off, but here’s what I hope:
I’d like a group where anything can be said, in a spirit of curiosity, reflectiveness and embracing whatever comes up into our minds….
….including when we don’t understand it, or think what we’re saying might not ‘stack up’.
Each meeting is a one-off: you don’t have to commit to anything other than the one you sign up to. I guess I’ll host these meetings about once a month.
Each meeting will be a maximum of 6 people. This is so that we
1. Each have a good chance of talking as well as listening, and
2. Don’t have to deal with being in a big group of other professionals and any feelings that brings up.
… any therapist or counsellor who is already qualified to practice i.e. at least to Diploma level.
… working in any setting, whether privately, in a school, company or agency.
… working with individuals, couples or groups.
£4.00 per meeting, to cover costs.
