Training & CPD Courses:
My passion, and the ethos of The Counselling Coach is to raise awareness of invisible illness & disability, and also to encourage acceptance. Those living with hidden conditions can often face disbelief, discrimination as well as frequent barriers when accessing support.
I provide CPD and resources for mental health professionals. I believe that it is vital that those who are supporting us have a better understanding of what life can be like when living with a chronic illness.
My resources are not aimed only at these professionals however, they can be useful for anyone who works with, supports or cares for somebody who lives with chronic illness.
Invisible disabilities can be extremely difficult to accept and understand because they aren’t tangible. We can often overlook things within our practice that may cause a barrier to access, simply because we hadn’t been aware of the impact some day-to-day activities can have upon a person living with an invisible disability.
My range of online resources and courses can help you to establish a disability friendly practice. I can provide an introduction to some of the more common invisible illnesses, as well as a more in-depth understanding of the issues faced by those living with chronic, invisible illness.
