Hi all,

Just to let you know of a group in the Durham area you might be interested in ....

"As complementary therapists we are often left to work entirely alone and unsupported once our official training is completed. As a new therapist it can be a daunting experience the first time a distraught client sobs in your therapy room, or you are presented with a complicated list of symptoms and you're not quite sure what to do, or even if you can help at all? (Yep, this happens to us all πŸ™‚

The idea of a supportive supervision group is perhaps born from my own experiences as a therapist. Firstly the group would hope to be a sharing and educational experience for all involved. Case study sharing, for example affords us the opportunity to learn from one another, and as such the group welcomes new and experienced therapists.

Secondly, the group would hope to offer emotional support for practising therapists, ideally striving to ensure the emotional and physical health of the practitioner remains intact; mindful of the sometimes delicate nature of the work undertaken.

The concept of supportive supervision is very important within the field of counselling and this group is perhaps designed to fill what I myself may have benefited from as a fledgling and less experienced therapist; and certainly would continue to benefit from today; the support of fellow complementary therapists.

If you feel the group may be of interest to you please contact Nichola for details. The group is open to all practising complementary therapists, regardless of the modality they practice".

PM me for details. πŸ™‚
