Introduction to Autism for counsellors

March 2017.

Feedback from this day would suggest this was another successful training day:

“I found the training insightful and thought provoking.”

“The role play really enriched my learning..I found this invaluable as it brought the subject to life.
I look forward to attending more of your courses in the future.”

“I found the CPD course on autism to be hugely informative and beneficial to me on a professional and a personal level.  The passion and knowledge that you all brought to the subject was invaluable.  I also found that the role play towards the end of the day really brought the day of learning to life.”

“Thank you to all of you for a very good day.  I got a lot out of it and particularly appreciated your collective personal and professional experience.  The role-play was outstanding ….!”

Autism presentation at local Cruse

After our Clinical Director Allan facilitated a discussion on Autism at a local Cruse group we got this feedback.
“Listeners felt it was very informative and easy to understand, targeted well to the audience. Humorous, informal, encouraging with excellent ideas on how to work with Asperger’s and Autism, thereby giving a better understanding of how it must feel like to be on the Autism spectrum”.

Autism/Aspergers Awareness for counsellors

At Counselling Works we are keen to promote Autism awareness amongst counsellors. We wrote to a few counsellors we knew offering a monthly Supervision Group, expecting to get 3 or 4 counsellors interested. 13 people came to the first meeting and so it has now become a group which raises awareness and also offers some supervision. From our perspective the group is meeting it’s design by making it possible for us to offer counselling to clients affected by autism/Aspergers syndrome. The groups meets once a month in Stony Stratford. Contact Angela – angela@counsellingworks.co.uk for more details.
