Consultancy & Training CPD

Being committed to supporting others includes offering information and support to those within my field. Psychotherapists and Counsellors are able to shape their careers however they want to which is both exciting and intimidating. Any direction you’d like to move in includes developing knowledge and skills in an ethical manner, so that your clients are adequately supported as your work evolves.

I am available to offer professional consultancy and training to trainee/qualified individuals, groups, and organisations looking to develop in the following areas:

Setting up and managing a counselling/psychotherapy service

Pre-trial therapy: talking therapy for clients who have an active report, investigation, or trial for a criminal offence they have reported to the police

Working with sexual violence, and/or domestic violence

Working in a trauma-informed way from an empowerment-based perspective

Any consultancy and training offered is gender-inclusive, LGBT+ affirmative, anti-oppressive, and intersectional. You will receive a CPD certificate and resources.

Erene is an incredibly warm and welcoming person who makes you feel at ease very quickly. She is gentle in her approach and really listens with genuine interest. Erene helped and supported me as I was setting up private practice, giving me advice and guidance and answering any questions or worries that I had. We covered many areas of setting up and running a private practice business, including how to attract new clients, expenses, note keeping, communication with clients, websites, directories, EAP’s, social media, blogging and admin. Erene is incredibly encouraging and helped me to build understanding and confidence on my journey into running my private practice business. I would highly recommended Erene to support you with your private practice!

I sought advice from Erene on setting up my private practice. She helped me to go through each item that I would need to consider ranging from assessment forms, confidentiality, record keeping to spreadsheets.  This included things I was completely unaware of, like having a professional will. The consultancy with Erene was thorough and insightful, leaving me armed with all I need to set up my private practice with confidence. I would definitely recommend Erene for anyone considering setting up their own private practice as she is thorough, practical and extremely supportive on top of having the wealth of knowledge and experience in this field and more.

Erene made me feel gently supported throughout, and adapted to a pace that suited me. We thoroughly covered all questions and topics I had together, and those which I hadn’t even thought of. After our consultancy, I felt more confident and left with tools and a clear path on how to set up my private practice. Erene is insightful, thoughtful and professional – I would definitely recommend her consultancy expertise.

It was a pleasure working alongside Erene for a number of years. I would also like to specifically comment on her excellent skills as a trainer of CPD workshops and being a confident leader, project coordinator and consultant. I have known Erene to be an ethically led professional, compassionate and dedicated to enhancing her practice, so I would highly recommend Erene as a professional consultant.
