Online CPD Group

The CPD and Supervision Group is a mixture of teaching, supervision and reading activities offering a dynamic and stimulating experience of learning and thinking  together as a group. The sessions are for practitioners wanting to build their theoretical knowledge and develop their clinical work.

Structure of the Day

The day will begin with a short check in to allow the group to get settled. If it is a teaching session we will begin the day with a one hour teach on the advertised topic and this will provide an initial focus for the group. If it is a reading group session then we will begin with an hour’s discussion of the reading material. Attendees are then invited to offer their own topics and requests for supervision.

The group’s topics will form the agenda for the remaining time.  Topics for discussion might be supervision of clinical work, ethical dilemmas, application of the taught theory to clients, support with exam work, tape and transcripts of work.

Working Online

I have been running online supervision groups for some time using Zoom as the platform. It allows for group interaction and is a stable and secure. I send out a protocol with some guidance on how to get the best from working online in a CPD and supervision group.

Who is it For? 

These sessions are for practitioners who are in clinical practice. The group will work across all modalities for counsellors, psychotherapists and supervisors.  The focus of the day will be Humanistic and Transactional Analysis. Group size is limited to 6 people.

Costs and Booking

The cost is an introductory fee of £60 per session. You are welcome to attend one, some or all dates. If you book for all of the dates then the session fee reduces to £55. Teaching notes are provided for teaching sessions along with a recording of the teach which is available for up to a month after the session. To book your place click on the links below. The links take you through to online registration which is free. Fees will be invoiced after each session for payment by BACS.

If you have not worked with me before please also book a free 20 minute intake session with me so that we can get to know each other a little before the CPD session.

Cancellation Policy: You can cancel with a 100% refund up to 7 days before the date of the session, thereafter a no refund policy applies. Fees can be transferred to other dates at any time, up to the day of the session.
