Consultancy

Do you have a knowedge or resources gap?

 

 

ORGANISATIONS AND EDUCATIONAL SETTINGS:

 

Delivering Knowledge:

I deliver talks and structed learning modules in counselling colleges and other organisations in the South West of England, particularly around the subject of Transgender and related gender identities.

 

It is possible to adjust any of the training CPD workshops I deliver to be deliverered as a bespoke in-house programme if that better suits your organsation.

 

 

Setting up a Counselling Provision:

I have experience of setting up a low cost/volunteer counselling service within a third sector setting and supporting others to do so. If your organisation is looking to add such a valuable resource for your clients, I can help you ensure the structures, processes and procedures neccessary are in place so that you, your volunteer counsellors and your client counselling service are compliant with leading professional body and ethical practice guidelines.

 

 

 

WELL-BEING PRACTITIONERS ad hoc supervision :

 

There may be a knoweledge gap in your current supervision provision around LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgender) issues that come up from time to time in your work.  I am available for one-off supervision sessions to cover this need

 

 

Please get in contact to discuss your individual needs.
