The CBT'ers Club
Mental Health is Everyone's Business
Being a psychotherapist, counsellor, coach, psychologist or practitioner - especially when in private or independent practice - can often be a lonely and isolating place. You don't see other practitioners often, you might not have anyone to discuss ideas or experiences with (except in supervision) and you might wish to connect or network and discuss work-related ideas, experiences and information with other people. It can be isolating working in private or independent practice, can't it?
Well, it doesn't have to be like that. Following from our own experiences as CBT psychotherapists psychology and mental heath practitioners, The CBT’ers Club was set up in late 2013, initially as a peer support and mentoring group. We all know what it's like to feel isolated and distanced from other practitioners.
Since setting up, we have discovered that meeting up, networking and interacting with other individuals with an interest in CBT has been invaluable. It has not only helped our own practice with clients, but has really helped decrease the feeling of isolation and loneliness that often comes with being a private or independent practitioner. This is something that all of our Registered Members have reported on since becoming Members. Members really value their The CBT’ers Club Membership.
Our meetings and gatherings so far have been very successful. We not only get to discuss the 'serious' matters of work, CBT practice, client work, CPD etc: we also meet new friends, share ideas and experiences, interact with other people, decrease isolation and, best of all, have a laugh and some fun at meetings and gatherings too! That's really important!
