How we do it

How we do it


  • We will meet with you to decide your main areas of concern.
  • We will spend some time in the practice getting to know how it works and meeting the team.
  • We will propose a program of cpd evenings/group workshops/one-to-one counselling sessions which best meets your needs.
  • Once you are happy with the program, we will begin immediately.
  • We will have regular meetings with you to discuss your progress towards your goals.

One-to-one counselling.
Cognitive therapy is based on the idea that when you change the way you think, you can change the way you feel and behave. In other words, if we can learn to think about other people in a more positive and realistic way, it will be far easier to resolve conflicts and develop rewarding personal and professional relationships.

Small group workshops.
In groups of 4 to 8, each workshop is short and deals with one topicĀ  e.g. stress management or communication issues, or charisma development or grievances. Each session generates a task e.g. a particular change in attitude, for all present to be done until the following session.

Larger cpd events.
Usually an hour long, many topics can be discussed at these events. e.g. how to raise staff morale, how colleagues can interact in a positive way, how to turn stress into a buzz, how to welcome the tricky client.
