“Counselling through the tiers”

The challenges of school counselling through a year of global pandemic

We very much hope you will join us on March 24th, 2021 for our first online Wellington College School Counsellors’ conference.

When we had to cancel our much-anticipated 4th conference in March 2020, we expected to be hosting you all in person again in the beautiful surroundings of Wellington in 2021 for the 5th! We never entertained the idea that we might still be unable to do that again this year, but here we are, a year into global pandemic, and at the time of writing, in lockdown again.

This year’s speakers include:

Gill Denne – Lead Counsellor at Wellington College. Gill will be giving the opening Welcome Address and speaking on: “Counselling Through the Tears – Holding Hope in a Time of Collective Trauma”

Anna Albert – Counsellor at Wellington College, will be speaking on: “Here We Go Around Again – Working as a School Counsellor in a Tumultuous Year, with Losses, Gains and Much Learning” 

Bridget McConnell – Counsellor at Wellington College and lecturer in Counselling at Guildford College, will be speaking on: “Tuning in or Tuning Out? Using Focusing Oriented Approaches to Working Creatively Online”

Sarah Pritchard – a specialist in creative indoor and outdoor therapies, based in South Manchester, will be speaking on: “Taking the Challenges of the Pandemic for a Walk”

Panel discussion – Has 2020 Changed School Counselling Forever?

Previous year’s delegates said: “Fantastic speakers!” “Fresh perspectives” “Very well organised, useful and relevant and good networking” “Great CPD”  “Loved the speakers, loved being with other professionals”

Log in from 09:00 with your tea or coffee, ready to start at 09:30.

A CPD certificate for 4 hours will be issued.
