Trans Focussed CPD & Consultation Group & Further CPD in 2023

Trans awareness for therapists

Trans Focussed CPD & Consultation Group – this is a monthly group that Counselling colleagues Sam Hope and Skylar Watts are starting a monthly trans focussed consultation and CPD group for counsellors needing extra support and expertise in this area. This blog tells you a little more about the group and how you can book if you would like to join.

This monthly trans-focussed consultation & CPD group offers a space for therapists to develop their practice around working with trans clients. Attendees can bring a hypothetical dilemma/issue or simply join to participate in discussion as part of their CPD commitment.

Attendees are welcome to bring real-life challenges from their work if they anonymise the information they share. The facilitation will be person-centred but therapists of any modality are welcome to attend.

There is an expectation that all participants will be striving towards anti-oppressive and trans affirmative practice 

Facilitated by Sam Hope, therapist and author of Person centred counselling for trans and gender diverse peopleA practical guide, and co-facilitated by Skylar Watts, therapist in training. To find out more about Sam Hope please see their website.
