A traditional blog today, it is far too wet to do a VLOG on Hamish today!
A training session on Motivational Interviewing yesterday was a great reminder of psychotherapy techniques and teaching techniques using various acronyms to initiate change in peoples thinking. Basically all clients need to make the change for themselves and not because you tell them – which is the essence of psychotherapy. Enabling clients to help themselves giving them a toolbox of strategies to move them forward on their journey of change.
I have had clients all week as per usual and all day today. I have supervision this week which I look forward to from Haven and privately, helps me to discuss a way froward with some clients and to offload about clients and myself to keep me mentally health and look after my own well being.
Wednesday is the Parents Peer Support Group from a new venue at Haworth – Cobbles and Clay. The topic this week is using visuals – timetables, etc. The following Wednesday is another new venue at South Square Cafe in Thornton on Thornton Road just by the New Inn. The topic is danger and running off.
On Tuesday 7 February I am at Bingley Fitness Studio from 6.15-8.15 at an Ask the Experts night. After classes or beforehand you can come and talk to various businesses about what they do. I will be there to talk about what I do if you are interested.
