Below is the original conference information for the full day face to face event.

We’re ready to bring people together again, face to face!

We invite you to join us for our Fifteenth Annual Conference for Counsellors working in schools or interested in working in schools on Thursday 29th September 2022.

The Storm After the Calm: therapeutically picking up the pieces

With waiting lists overwhelmed and professionals feeling the pressure, so much is being pushed back into schools to be the provider of all support. Let’s take some valuable time to reconnect in this stimulating and supportive environment.

The conference is suitable for all professionals who work to support young people both inside and outside of the school setting.

Conference Programme

Opening Address with Kathy Peto: The Young Person, the Family and the Outside World: how do we as therapists find our positions in the systems surrounding young people?

Kathy began her working life as a teacher and then a youth and community worker, and has been working in the field of parenting education and family support for the last 26 years, as a practitioner, trainer, manager and supervisor within both the statutory and voluntary sectors. Her original training as a psychodynamic counsellor informs her therapeutic work with families, and her interest in how organisations and systems work led her recently to undertake an MA in Consulting and Leading in organisations at the Tavistock and Portman Institute.

Morning Workshops:

  1. Please don’t leave me. Thinking beyond acting out – understanding and working with young people in chaos (Having worked in a range of educational settings, Angelique Camoenié now works as the lead school counsellor and supervisor at Gosford Hill School, Kidlington and in private practice)
  2. Understanding the development of psychotic symptoms in young people (Louise Johns is a consultant clinical psychologist in the Oxford Early Intervention in Psychosis Service and a senior research tutor on the Oxford Clinical Psychology Training Course. She is a BABCP accredited cognitive behaviour therapist)
  3. Muddles, mistakes and miscommunications, rupture and repair: the pain of learning from our mistakes in our consulting rooms and the school corridors (Debbie Lee is a UKCP psychotherapist and experienced school counsellor. She currently works as the lead counsellor at King Alfred’s Academy, Wantage)
  4. A systemic perspective on the context of equality, power and difference (Shona Reed-Purvis & Kiri Summers are registered systemic supervisors and family therapists working for CAMHS. Their work includes training events, supervision and individual family therapy)

Afternoon Workshops:

  1. The Oedipus Complex and how it can inform our thinking about adolescent relationships (Seth Osborne is a school counsellor at Magdalen College School, Oxford and is a UKCP registered psychotherapist)
  2. Understanding the development of psychotic symptoms in young people (Louise Johns is a consultant clinical psychologist in the Oxford Early Intervention in Psychosis Service and a senior research tutor on the Oxford Clinical Psychology Training Course.

  3. 50 Shades of Feeling: Making therapeutic sense of emotions clients evoke in us (Katia Houghton is the lead counsellor at Marlborough College boarding school in Wiltshire, and a psychoanalytic psychotherapist in private practice)
  4. Sound, fury, silence: Helping young people and schools to keep talking about race (Lucy-Jean Lloyd worked for many years as a school counsellor and is now a trainer, supervisor and counsellor in private practice.
