About this event

Do you ever feel stuck with the people you work with? Are you looking for a fresh foundation for your skills and creativity?

Using an ACT based approach can open things up and help you to put your clients back on track towards an expansive, vital, and meaningful life. ACT is a new, radically different, approach to psychological therapy that is becoming popular with therapists, counsellors, coaches, and many other helping professions. It is a mindfulness-based approach that puts a focus on what’s important to us rather than getting tangled up in the complexities of the things that cause us difficulty. An ACT approach can help our clients to find the life they want. It is empirically supported with an ever-increasing evidence base.

This workshop aims to give you a taste of the ACT approach from the inside out. Using a series of experiential exercises and engaging metaphors you’ll get a sense of how ACT might work on issues that your clients may be struggling with. We’ll cover the three main areas of the ACT model: being open, being aware, and taking action. With group discussion and small group work we’ll facilitate connection and support of your fellow attendees. Finally, we’ll help you to find ways to integrate your new insights into your professional life. This course will be suitable for anyone who works with people in a helping or developmental role including counsellors, tutors, mentors, coaches.

The one-day workshop will be run by Dr Steve Killick, Clinical Psychologist and Accredited CBT practitioner, and Andy Wilson, BACP Accredited therapist, supervisor and trainer . Steve and Andy are both experienced counsellors and trainers using ACT with a variety of client populations.
