Previous Events

A Morning with Gwen Adshead: The Impact of Childhood Fear and Distress in the Therapy Room

This informative workshop took place on Saturday 30th April 2022, and was highly successful.

BCS extends a massive thank you to all the counsellors, psychotherapists and mental health workers that joined us.

Her [Gwen’s] sense of humour in her delivery along with the visual cues covering the physiological aspects, helped you see how the presenting issues are set, linking to the potential presentation by clients. A very engaging speaker and topics ‘’

“I found the online workshop ‘A Morning with Gwen Adshead’ really insightful. Gwen was very engaging and extremely knowledgeable on the subject matter of the impact of childhood fear and distress. She delivered a wealth of interesting information in what was a relatively short space of time. It was a really enlightening session and I will definitely keep a look out for future seminars by Gwen”.

A Day with Professor Brett Kahr:
Bombs in the Consulting Room: Surviving Attacks and Facilitating Cures

This engaging workshop took place on Saturday 6th November 2021 

Comments from the day:

“ Brett was engaging from beginning to end. I could listen to him talk all day. I particularly liked the way he avoided jargon and conveyed everything in a way that was understandable. I would like to hear more from him in the future.”

“Very interesting content and an enjoyable, informative day”

“Thank you. I thoroughly enjoyed the day. I have no negative comments to make. Professor Kahr was an extremely good and interesting speaker. Would attend again.”
