Why is ongoing training important

Continuous training and learning are necessary for professional development. This is true for everyone, whether you have recently graduated or are very experienced, a freelance, or are a senior practitioner and manager at a large company. Investing in ongoing learning ensures improvement of practice and its up-to-date delivery; the more you train, the more likely you are to develop as a professional. Regular training helps to challenge and fuel your interest in what you do, keep the ‘spark’ alive, and prevent feelings of boredom or stagnation. Engaging with professional learning exposes us to new ideas, inspires and encourages more creativity and in general, can support professional and personal growth.

What I offer

Training and professional development

I offer training and experience-based workshops on a range of topics, and for different types of professional development. The training can be for allied health professionals, mental health practitioners, educators, and any other professional who feel the need to enhance their mental health and wellbeing knowledge. I also facilitate wellbeing events to help companies to support their employees with improved self-care, wellness, and mental and physical health.

These training can be tailored to a specific profession or setting, and are aimed at developing tools to help the participants with challenges arising in their work. The training can be delivered as a one-off workshop, a full training day, or as a training/educational programme, and on a variety of topics.

Teaching & Training

Mental Health Issues

Example workshops:

Understanding mental health

This training is aimed at professionals who feel they would like to know more about mental health. We will look at increasing your awareness and understanding of mental health issues, their prevalence, and possible presentations. We will explore ways for you to recognise mental health conditions, and what support is possible and appropriate for you to offer. We will also look at ways to maintain your wellbeing and prevent burnout when working with mental health conditions.

Trauma-informed practice

We will look at the mechanism of trauma, its complexities and effect, to help you understand it better and become more trauma-aware. We will reflect on post-traumatic symptoms and the skills you need to practice with survivors of trauma. We will explore clinical tools to support you in doing this work, and reflect on trauma-related risks (i.e. secondary trauma) and how to stay clinically safe and to care for ourselves while we care for others.

Professional skills

Example workshops:

Embodiment & creativity

Embodiment and creativity are useful tools to add to your clinical skill mix as a health professional. They can also be used for team-building, conflict resolution, and professional development. I offer practical learning by looking at these concepts to support your practice, deal with work dynamics, use for problem-solving and communication, and support service users. The application of both can enrich your work methods, and help you increase your professional and personal wellbeing.

Professional resilience

In this training, participants will examine their work habits and look at ways to prevent burnout. I offer you an opportunity to identify your professional strengths while recognising your needs and setting healthy boundaries. We will look at how to accurately evaluate your professional capacity, and in relation to personal and institutional expectations, to support you in finding ways to work safely. Finally, we will explore helpful and effective self-care practices that can help you to increase your professional resilience.

Wellbeing at work

Example workshops:

Space to reflect

For practitioners who wish to explore challenging cases and incidents and feel they can use further reflection time. In these workshops, I offer you to revisit clinical experiences and investigate their impact, better understand your clinical decision-making and the actions of the people they work with. We will also look at useful practices to help you improve your self-reflection habits and find safe ways to discuss and offload work related challenges – during the training and on a day-to-day basis.

Work & Wellbeing

The working environment can be challenging for different reasons, and this can impact motivation and cause problems for the person, their colleagues, and/or the company. I offer these workshops to focus on your wellbeing by exploring obstacles and difficulties and looking for creative solutions. We will use embodied and creative methods in an explorative way to identify and increase your ability to be creative and content at work, and to improve your team dynamics and relationships.
