What’s happening at CPS Ltd …2017

2017

I’m running another series of my “Getting Started in Private Practice” in May and June. Come along and join me in Glasgow (May 5th), Bristol (May 19th) and Leeds (June 16th). Find out more details and book your place here: CPDWORKSHOPS

2014

December: We are ending the year on a high, with the therapy practice the busiest it has ever been, and extra work being developed as I write, thanks to a successful bid to win a contract to support a local NHS team in tackling their Waiting List! After 6 weeks of to-ing and fro-ing and several meetings, confirmation has come through and we start immediately! This work has given me the opportunity to bring on board 2 (and hopefully 3) Associates to help me deliver the required assessment and therapy, so CPS Ltd gets to grow (and build it’s reputation further), my colleagues get to benefit from having extra work come their way and the NHS get highly experienced and skilled therapists working to support their clients. Winners all round, I think!

2013

Throughout 2013, I will be running my popular one-day workshop – “First Steps to Your Own Private Practice” – for several organisations. Bookings are open for upcoming presentations at Birmingham (BABCP: April 25th), London (SDS: May 20th) and Manchester (NCPIP: June 28th), with more likely to follow, including Bristol (Private Practice Hub: date to be confirmed). Please follow the links above for details, or email colin@clerkinpsychology.co.uk with expressions of interest, and I will put you in touch with the relevant organisers.

Feedback from previous workshops has been very positive, including this recent comment:

“By halfway through the morning, I’d got my money’s worth! Most of my questions were answered, or on the way to being.  Colin Clerkin was an excellent presenter, keeping us engaged throughout, enthusiastic about the subject and clearly knowledgeable and willing to share his own experiences to bring the subject to life.”

Tracey Hampton – Smith, Cognitive Behavioural Therapist

Also coming soon is a follow-up workshop on “Getting Clients” which is designed to help you grow your practice through following a consistent strategy that I have developed through my own practice. Please email colin@clerkinpsychology.co.uk if you want to be kept informed of upcoming dates.

In January 2013, I am launching the CPS Newsletter  – a monthly series of therapy-focused articles and research up-dates that should be of interest to referrers and other therapists. To subscribe, just click on this link: http://eepurl.com/tqMrD
