“How do you feel today?”
Is the counselling profession doing enough to understand and serve the needs of autistic clients?

Thursday 11 March 2021 from 6.30pm until 8.30pm. The event is FREE.

Our presenter for the evening will be Neville Tomlinson, our treasurer, who has just completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Autism and Asperger Syndrome at Sheffield Hallam University. Neville has two autistic children and his partner (their mum) was diagnosed last year, so this is a subject close to his heart.

This is a topic that is likely to be of interest to all therapists, regardless of modality.

There will be opportunities for questions and interaction.

Attendees will be entitled to a certificate for two hours of CPD.

Very best wishes to you all, and I look forward to seeing you on 11 March.
