What you'll learn

If you already interpret, or are contemplating working in counselling/psychotherapy settings, this webinar will provide you with invaluable insight into both the theory and practicalities of this domain.

You will learn details of some of the counselling modalities your therapist may be using. This will give you some insight into the decisions they take in the therapy session. Discussion of these concepts will also give you space to reflect on your own suitability to work in this domain. What are your personal values? How might they impact on the interpreted session?

You’ll be given tips and resources to help you prepare for psychotherapy bookings. You will also learn about practical considerations within the therapy room itself.
