It feels like it’s been a long week, with an awful lot going on from day to day, but it has been highly productive and energising too.
We began by welcoming Anne Edwards to LCPC, who has brought humour, energy and creativity to the team, and by Tuesday her room was furnished and finished, ready to receive clients. She has worked hard to make the room look really good, though I must give a special mention to Steve the builder for his expert conversion on the top floor – thank you Steve!
Amy and Ampy have been working away on our behalf for a few weeks now, improving the website, our communications and our events – this week has seen my comments on crushes (!) published in two magazines, we’ve had some wonderful photographs taken of No12 for the website, and we’ve taken an active part in Mental Health Awareness Week in a variety of ways, including hosting a Scandi style “hygge” lunch for local businesses on Friday, raising money for MIND in the process. We’ll be doing that again soon……. Myira has her profile in the new Therapy Today, introducing the BACP Board of Governors, and we’re looking forward to a range of events including our launch on 21st July, which has been confirmed as being at No12 from 6pm, then on to New Walk Museum from 7/7.30 for food, speeches and a guest appearance on the piano! We’re also excited about Michael Jacobs coming to deliver his workshop on Oedipus in November – book early as places are limited.
However, while all of this is very exciting, we are really clear that our clients are our priority – to make sure that we are being the best we can be with all of our clients.
We are working on building a community, and piece by piece this is taking shape.
