FROM FEAR TO INSIGHT: Adapting Your Professional Practice: Online Presence with Pat Spink
October 10, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am UTC+0
An ONLINE group journey for therapists who want to grow stronger together .
Ten Saturdays 10am to 1pm. Starts 12 September.
One-hour lecture led by different guests and followed by two-hour group session with Bárbara Godoy
Pat Spink started off her career with over twenty years in Retail Banking, firstly on the business side and, later, specialising in technical and skills training design and delivery. She then spent ten years as an independent trainer and HR project manager.
Now a counsellor, coach, supervisor and trainer whose core training is Humanistic and Integrative, rooted in Person-centred, TA and Gestalt, she combines this with her prior experience in adult learning and development and her training as a coach and an NLP Master Practitioner. She also brings elements from CPD in various other approaches such as Therapeutic Groupwork, Existential Therapy, Short Term Brief Therapy and aspects of CBT. She holds a Diploma in Online Counselling & Psychotherapy and a Diploma in Online Therapeutic Supervision.
She offers her clients and supervisees a choice of five ways in which to meet: face to face, video, phone, live chat and email – or a blend of these. She’s aware that she had the luxury of making the transition to online at her own pace which hasn’t been the case for many therapists who have had to adapt much more quickly recently in order to provide continuity of service to their clients during lockdown.
She loves the flexibility, adaptability and additional creativity that providing this range of media has brought to her and her clients, and is keen to share what she has learned with others. To help them be their best selves (professionally and personally) and to explore what the online world has to offer safely and ethically.
To this end, she recently spent three years with The Academy for Online Counselling & Psychotherapy designing and delivering ACTO-approved Certificate and Diploma courses for therapists and supervisors and has, more recently, been developing a series of stand-alone workshops independently.
