How can you get your therapy and counselling sessions off to a flying start? This webinar offers 5 simple, practical, memorable techniques for counsellors and therapists.
As counsellors we are only too aware of the need to get the therapy session off to a good start. And yet this is not a skill taught on most training courses. If anything the only advice given in most training courses is: Negotiate an Agenda - and yet the majority of counsellors do not do this.
But what should we do?
While no single approach will fit all, this free webinar offers 5 simple tips to manage the first 5 minutes of any counselling session.
