Is Counselling the career for you?

Maybe you have thought about a career as a counsellor. Maybe people find it easy
to talk to you when they’re worried. Maybe you’re often told you are a good listener.

If that sounds like you perhaps our introductory course in counselling skills
will help you decide if a career as a counsellor is for you.

Our course is unique. You will learn skills and technique for working with
families and couples as well as individuals. You do not need to have any previous
experience. The teaching team is made up of qualified family psychotherapists with
many years of experience working with families, couples, children and individuals
and are members of the Association of Family Therapy (AFT).

The course is delivered in two modules each comprising 18 hours making a total
of 36 hours of face-to-face training. The cost of each module is £250.

The course starts in March 2019. Please visit our website for

PPG Survey for PPGs

Source By: NHS Clinical Commissioning Group

What’s this survey about?

The GP Confederation has been asked by the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to think about how we can improve patient engagement in primary care across City and Hackney. The survey is about understanding your experiences with your Patient Participation Group (PPG).

This survey is being run on behalf of the GP Confederation by Sam Meikle who works for Spark the Difference, an independent organisation which is supporting the GP Confederation to undertake this work.

What will survey responses be used for?
We’ll use the information you provide in two ways:
1. To create a commissioned report for the CCG to describe current PPG activities across City and Hackney; and
2. To help the Confederation develop new and better ways of supporting practices and neighbourhoods to engage better and more effectively with patients and share good practice.

How to complete this survey?
You can complete this survey yourself online through Survey Monkey or you can arrange a 15-20 minute call with Sam Meikle, where you can verbally give her your responses. To arrange a call with Sam, click Sam’s Calendly appointments to access her diary directly.

Want to talk further?
If you would like to talk further about your views or experiences of PPGs, please get in touch with Sam Meikle ( or 07596 680 782) and she will arrange a time for a call or a coffee.
