Juliet set up StopSO (Specialist Treatment Organisation for Perpetrators and Survivors of Sexual Offences). This is a UK wide charity that provides therapy to people who feel at risk of committing a sexual offence (or re-offending). The aim of StopSO is to stop the FIRST sexual crime - and to reduce sexual abuse in the UK. Our 200+ therapists work with all kinds of sexual crimes; from exhibitionism, voyeurism, internet offences, child contact offences, rape, etc. Juliet is the Chair, and a UKCP registered psychotherapist. She will give facts and figures and an insight into working with this client group. It is so important to PREVENT rather than REACT when dealing with sexual abuse.Find out more »

When I was studying to become a Clinical Supervisor, my favourite module asked us to create a model of supervision that worked for us.
I enjoyed creating this model, and it is the model that underpins and informs my practice. I believe it encompasses many of the aspects required in supervision - the pastoral care, the challenge of one's practice, the administrative aspects, the relationships between client-therapist and therapist-supervisor, the stages of learning of the therapist and level of expertise of the supervisor, and so on.
I compiled these from existing theories, which I will describe briefly in this hour, and explain why I find these important for a thorough and complete supervision model.Find out more »

In this talk, I will explore: the art of micro-tracking, the impact of The Witness figure, the precision required, using the body to ensure the changes last, the creation of a New Memory, and the fact that the healing is NOT in the relationship with the therapist, that the transfererence is transferred away from the therapist.
I know of no other method that can heal early attachment issues as effectively as Pesso Psychotherapy. When I came across PBSP as a client, I realised that despite 15 years of good quality talking therapy, my body was still loaded with trauma. Now, having been a PBSP client, my body is quiet and I feel deeply content.Find out more »
This interview touches on the role of spirituality in counselling. We know human relationships are crucial for people's mental health. How about the relationship with the self? How do we approach the sense of something bigger than us in therapy? Love is absolutely esential for people to develop a healthy view of themselves. Often, clients have never experienced unconditional love before coming to therapy. What is the role of a therapist in the spiritual life of clients? Is it appropriate to model unconditional love for them?Find out more »
