Training and Group work
Counsellor training involves three areas of personal development: self-awareness (or reflexivity); theories about what is useful to people in counselling; and techniques that aid the counselling relationship. My particular theory areas for couples and family counselling are Systemic and Narrative ideas; Psychodynamic counselling; and Attachment theory.
