Accessibility: It is very much central to our vision that we make in depth psychological thinking through our activities as accessible as possible. Please do let us know in advance of your participating if we need to be aware of any issues affecting your accessibility and we will do the best we can to accommodate you. It is important to know that the building we currently occupy is accessible only by stairwells (one to the consultation rooms and another to the lab). We have done all that we can, given these limitations, to make access as wide as possible. However, we also understand that this still excludes some. If you are interested in joining us in any way, but cannot access our venue, please do let us know and we will endeavour to make the best alternative arrangements.

17 June: Reconnecting to Creativity and Combating Burnout

A CPD event for psychotherapists and counsellors with Sarah van Gogh:

As counsellors and psychotherapists we often witness and attend to deep distress and despair. This takes its toll. How can we stay alive to the trauma and difficulties our clients bring and share, at the same time as modelling for them the possibility of hope? How can we ensure we maintain our self-care, enjoyment in life, and capacity to be playful and creative?
