First past the post

casual picHi there,

I’m new to blogging.  I’ve decided to take my first steps now because my on-line clients have expressed their interest in finding out more about their counsellor before contacting me.  What tells you more about me (as a counsellor) than the societies I join? It’s the next best thing to meeting me. Today I’ll tell you about one of them.

UKPTS  UK Psychological Trauma Society.  A great place to keep up to date with all the latest research and treatment for people who have suffered a trauma.  What is a trauma?  Well that’s up to the way that a person experiences an event. It could be a natural disaster or an automobile accident or any number of developmental trauma that might occur during childhood.  Here is a site that will tell you more.

It’s really important for a counsellor to keep abreast of what’s happening in the world too.  The recent stats about PTSD and veterans are pretty hard core.  So you know it’s important to make sure your training is spot on.
