Introducing Haulm Firstly, Rich Taylor and Chris Molyneaux (email@example.com) are proud to introduce you to Haulm: a new local Person-Centred training centre committed to the PCA and to high-quality training standards. We're going into our second year of delivering CPCAB Level 3 and Level 4 counselling courses and we'd welcome your input to help support our students and to grow our centre. In an ideal world it will involve us helping you at the same time. Signposting student clients to you: An essential part of training on our Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling is experiencing purely Person-Centred personal therapy. As a result, we are creating a list of committed PC practitioners to share with our students this year and for the years to come. If you would like to be added to the list we share with our students, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following: - Name - website/directory address - a photo of you - a photo of your training certificate - a description of why are you committed to practicing in a solely Person Centred way Are your books gathering dust? Training as a counsellor is a big financial outlay, and therapy books can be pricey, so if we can save our students some money then we'd like to. It could also mean you get to support those that are following in your footsteps and declutter your space at the same time. If you have any old or now barely used PCA or counselling books that you'd like to donate to the Haulm library then we'd really welcome them. You'd absolutely be able to loan (or even have) them back yourselves at any point in the future if they were ever wanted or needed again, but if our students can utilise them when they'd otherwise be sat on a shelf then that'd be great! We'll be sure to ask them not to underline anything or scribble in them. Please email us at email@example.com if you'd like to donate a book or two. https://www.haulm.co.uk/ Personal Development Group Happening in-person (in Hove) over the weekend 16th-17th October 2021, 10am-5.30pm on both days, 12hrs CPD/certificate of attendance and costs £120 in total. Personal Development Groups offer a space to explore personal topics, how we make contact with others (and them us), what prevents or encourages us to be part of the group and transferences that may arise. It's a space where we sit with certainty and uncertainty. It's an opportunity to discover our strengths and growing edges, and how we might translate that into both our personal and professional lives. The purpose of the group is raising our awareness of how and who we are in the world.
Presence, Blocks and the Inner Relationship - 16th October and 20th November 10-5 - £130 - Online Have you done an Introduction to Focusing workshop or equivalent one to ones and would like to learn more? If so then you may be interested in this workshop. In these workshops we explore our inner relationship, work with parts and look at how to work with blocks to the Focusing process. We look at developing developing an inner sense of presence from which to relate to all of our inner parts. The Inner Critic is often an part that gets in our way in our life and in our Focusing: We will look at how we can work with critical parts and voices and find the positive gifts they have to offer. If you would like to cultivate a more compassionate and connected inner relationship and experience learning in a small supportive group, this workshop is for you!
