Progress is getting busier all the time. Between a growing internal client base, more external service referrals and Robert’s first intake of clinical supervisees we are helping more clients and now therapists than ever. But this needs planning to ensure that people are seen as often as they need. As such some changes are being made.
The office in Kilmarnock is nearly ready to open on Monday. Everyone is currently booked for their normal videocall but if you want to come …
We have been a digital first service since COVID so how the service looks after that has been something I have been working on for a few months. Today I signed the lease to rent suite 3:7 in the Ingram Enterprise Centre, 30 John Finnie St, Kilmarnock, KA1 1DD. This will be Progress’ first physical venue and will be used to fully restore in person sessions, replacing the limited home visits system. The most common questions have been answered below.
Today marks the second anniversary of Progress Psychotherapy (& RFCBT before it). I would like to thank all of those who entrusted us with their mental health care. To mark this occasion I have highlighted the big developments of this past year and then offer a sneak peek into my plans for year 3.
Hot on the heels of 6.0 the next website update is live. This update upgrades the Documents & Tools page to locally host all files …
I have been really happy with the site’s performance since version 5.0 launched in April. The documents and tools hosting has been a fantastic resource for clients and others to apply our work to the real world. It has also been great for the site, driving return visits far beyond where they were and general traffic is by far the highest it has ever been. But I don’t want the service to stop there so I made a £100 investment into advanced WordPress compatible software to enhance the site’s design and performance. So with one week till the services second anniversary, progresspsychotherapy.com version 6.0 launched today.
Robert has been listed on Psychology Today. This will be great to let more people discover the service. See the listing here- https://www.psychologytoday.com/gb/counselling/ka1/880612?sid=60fa75d4018e8&ref=2
Since COVID, Progress has been a digital first service with very little in-person services. Since the lockdown has been lifting people have asked about bringing these back. The question is how to do it with our larger client base. If we keep with home visits fewer people can be seen and we are going to have to start charging for travel time to maintain income. The alternative is sourcing office premises (likely in Kilmarnock) and asking clients to come to me.
We have had an I.T. update which raises the site to the newest Wordpress version, adds a new tool for client use and comes with an important communication change (check your saved email address!).
Robert has confirmed the commencement of his training as a clinical supervisor beginning in September 2021. Progress will begin offering clinical supervision services in 2022. All qualified/accredited counsellors and psychotherapists undertake clinical supervision to ensure they are being fully supported and their practice meets the highest standards. Robert is an accredited therapist who has been involved in the training and development of others.
