So, you think you might want to begin psychotherapy training?
You probably have lots of questions as you think about making this potential career change with psychotherapy training. TA Training Organisation are having an Open Day on Saturday 21st July 10.30am until 1pm for prospective trainees. You can come along, see the training centre, meet us and ask any questions before taking the step of applying.
For many people psychotherapy training is a career change. Making such a significant life change we thought it might be helpful for people to meet us prior to applying are so that you can find out if psychotherapy might be the career for you. Psychotherapy is often a second career for people particularly in the UK. For example, Lin had a 20 year successful career in sales and marketing before she set up her private practice. Andy worked in hotels and schools in management positions.
What is the plan for the Open Day? Here are some of the items on our agenda.
We will be talking about the kind of person who trains to be a therapist and what some of the longer-term career options look like that are available.
We will also talk about what is involved in training to be a therapist. Learning about theory which involves studying a psychological model. We will outline some of the requirements that are involved outside of the taught elements. For example, seeing clients, having supervision and your own personal therapy.
There will be some thoughts from us on the different kinds of training that is available. We will talk about the difference between going to a university or attending a smaller training institute owned, run and managed by practising psychotherapists.
We will tell you about the training course we offer at TA Training Organisation in Horsforth, Leeds. Our ethos and philosophy and what it would be like to train with us now – group sizes, facilities available.
Finally, both Lin and Andy will do a short teach on a TA topic to give you a taste of the type of thing you can expect on the programme we run.
