Andy Williams is a psychotherapist, clinical supervisor and Director of Training at TA Training Organisation. He is passionate about supporting therapists to become emancipated in their professional identities and to practice “in their own boots”. Andy is a senior Transactional Analyst, Chair of the North East TA Conference and is a UKATA medal winner for services to the UK TA community. Andy has presented workshops at the national and international level. His research interests include the efficacy of clinical supervision and the narrative of suicide in private practice.
As therapists emerge from their Zoom bunkers, blinking in the sunlight of the post-apocalyptic COVID world, what might they need to consider as they return to therapy in the face-to-face context?
In this workshop employing a range of theories and therapeutic stances, Andy Williams offers the practitioner a set of questions that they might like to consider as they move from one therapeutic context to another.
By the end of the workshop delegates will be equipped with a set of questions and considerations to support their own practice in their own context.
The event proved very popular, with over 130 therapists joining in to this live online event. The video has now been edited and is available to watch online for those who could manage to attend the event online or in person. Click on the image below to start the video.
