Yesterday marked the end of the 20-21 financial year, Progress’ (and RFCBT before its) first full financial year of operation.
Following on from achieving my Mindfulness Diploma last year, I undertook the Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) Diploma over the last 6 months, with a focus on treatment-resistant depression.
The East Ayrshire school counselling service has launched its March newsletter. This features an article by me about coping with the stress of having missed in-person education and using blended learning. Useful for school aged and other students. Feel free …
The service has an updated brand and trading name- Progress Psychotherapy Services (also trading as Progress Psychotherapy or just Progress for short). The Robert Fulton CBT Services & RFCBT brand names are being retired.
I have signed my contract to begin working in East Ayrshire schools providing therapy to young people (once COVID restrictions allow). This will only be on Wednesday/Thursday so won’t noticeably impact RFCBT, everyone will be seen at their normal frequency …
Today I received my first dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccination which may open a path to more in-person services.
I commissioned and have been working with a graphic designer to help me update the RFCBT logo. Which colour is the best one?
The Scottish Government has decided to move East Ayrshire into level 4 of their COVID-19 restrictions from Friday 20/11/20. In accordance with the new COVID policies agreed with local government this means all in-person sessions will be suspended from that date.
I am delighted to inform clients/ caregivers that I was accredited as a psychotherapist by the British Association of Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapies today.
As COVID-19 safety guidance from local, Scottish, and UK government changes in line with events it is helpful to have a generally applicable policy to help current and prospective clients understand the scenarios when in-person sessions can or cannot occur. This policy is based on the current Scottish 5 tier system and has been devised based on advice from local government and Scottish representatives. This policy will be revised if the 5 tier system is ever altered.
