Herne Bay Counsellor Training


Due to the recent events and COVID-19 it is with regret that we have postponed our planned workshop days.  We did consider going ahead remotely however felt that as part of the experience is getting to meet with others and not feel so isolated, we would prefer to postpone them to when we can all be together again.  Keep safe and well everyone and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Anorexia nervosa, binge eating and bulimia nervosa, attitudes to food and body dysmorphia.

When to refer on, Is it safe for you to work with this client?

Eating disorders are disabling, unpredictable and difficult to treat. I’m hoping this workshop makes you feel more confident in your practice and answers some of your questions.

Working with the Narrative


Date:  TBC
Facilitator:  Annetta Bowden

Cost:  £65

There are many different themes which make up what has come to be known as ‘narrative therapy’ and every therapist engages with these ideas somewhat differently. Narrative therapy seeks to be a respectful, non-blaming approach to counselling, which puts people as the experts in their own lives. It views problems as separate from people and assumes people have many skills, competencies, beliefs, values and abilities.

We need to have a curiosity and a willingness to ask questions to which we genuinely don’t know the answers. There are many possible directions that any conversation can take, there is no right road, but many roads. We will look at stories that people tell and how these stories impact our lives. There will be opportunities to tell your story and see how a story shared can make you feel.

To change your story is a powerful thing, especially as you thought you were stuck with the story forever. To feel empowered by changing your story is magical, is amazing, is thought provoking and truly possible.
