Advanced Supervision Skills:
Getting the Most from this Unique Relationship

One-Day Workshop. Saturday 14 July 2018.
Newcastle upon Tyne

This one-day workshop - back by popular demand - gives everyone involved in supervision a chance: to refresh existing skills; develop new skills; and to rekindle your passion for this unique relationship. Super-vision is a transforming process for both supervisor and supervisee. We will look at which model of supervision best suits your personality and modality, and we will also give time to look at the creative side of supervision and how and when it is best used.

A variety of ways of working will be explored and you will get a chance to get feedback. We will also review some of the latest discussions around the responsibility the supervisor holds, and we will look at the importance of creating a safe and containing space, which allows the supervisee to be fully open and reflective on their work with their clients.

The day is run by Jenny Biancardi.

The Edges of Therapy: The Use of Effective Focus

The Edges of Therapy The Use of Effective Focus CPD Open One-Day Workshop

Saturday 1 September 2018.
Beadnell.

Having just had another birthday, I’ve been reviewing how I work and the things that seem to make a difference to the therapeutic encounter.

This workshop will be a chance to examine and practice the less-obvious aspects of therapy which none-the-less are crucial to it being effective. In line with my own synthesis - Effective Focus - we will work towards increasing how much we notice (and how we use) our own reactions and responses in the session, and what aspects of all the information we receive, we choose to follow. When the work is short-term, using every moment is vital.

The day is run by Jenny Biancardi.

Working in Action from a Person-Centred Base

Working in Action from a Person-Centred Base CPD One-Day Workshop

Saturday 25 February 2017.
Newcastle upon Tyne.

Many counsellors and therapists find that they have less time allocated for their clients, particularly if they are working for large organisations. Action work is often an exciting and effective way to get to the heart of a problem quickly. It can also be fun, and often avoids the stuck or repetitive place that we can all get into.

Staying Positive and Creative as Our World of Therapy Continues to Change

Staying Positive and Creative as Our World of Therapy Continues to Change CPD One-Day Open Workshop

One-Day Open Workshop
Saturday 26 August 2017. Beadnell

This is an opportunity to meet with other therapists and supervisors and together to explore some creative ways to still work effectively within the new requirements and limits on our practice. I see this as an opportunity for us to share our experiences, support each other, and find some ways to stay positive and authentic within the new boundaries.

This open workshop is taking place at Beadnell - many of you will know how much I enjoy staying there - and the venue directly overlooks the sea, with steps down onto the beach.
