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.
I have been accepted as a registered data controller/ data protection officer by the UK Information Commissioner’s Office.
Some changes to in-person and online sessions.
Some clients know that I have been looking into upgrading RFCBT’s digital platforms for E-mail and online sessions.
People often wonder about the difference between a counsellor and a psychotherapist.
RFCBT has now been operating for 1 year. I set up with a hope of making CBT accessible for people from a wide range of backgrounds and income brackets while establishing myself as a newly qualified therapist.
Today is the release of Scottish exam results. This can be a day of pride for young people but also a day of disappointment and anxiety. You may not get the results you hoped for and fear for your future. …
RFCBT will resume in-person sessions from next week (27/7/20). These will be in line with government and professional guidelines for COVID-19 safety.
On 09/07/2020 the Scottish government initiated phase 3 of its COVID-19 lockdown routemap. This allows home visits to resume as of 10/7/20. In principle, this allows RFCBT to resume face-to-face operations which can be more effective and suits some clients better. However, it is important to do this as safely as possible.
I will be getting in touch with clients and caregivers to draw up individual risk assessments and safety plans next week. These will allow resumptions of face to face sessions and restoration of suspended sessions in the near future. Exact timings will depend on individual circumstances.
In the meantime, stay safe and keep well.
