My first degree was MBA and I didn't think about psychology at all as a profession. With 45 I added an MSc in leadership and org psychology (Stockholm University), followed in 2016 by a doctorate in counselling psychology and psychotherapy (London: Middlesex/NSPC) and Chartered Psychologist with BPS, Clinical psychologist (HCPC, EuroPsy), and BPS Registration as Practice Supervisor (RAPPS). I am also an accredited EMCC Global Supervisor and Master Practitioner, as well as coaching psychologist.
This stew means I enjoy running different kinds of Psychology based Retreats.
Supervision. Can be intensive, deep dives as we use our own experience to explore mental health issues, psychotherapy treatments orclinical awareness in coaching. In each intensive we reflect upon warning signs and psychiatric red flags - it will help you document and make referrals at the right time. I do groups of 8-12 participants.
Accreditation. If you're at senior or master level of coaching/mentoring practice, you can join us and get documentation done during a 5 days special intensive. Minimum 6 participants.
Team development approaches. Explore group psychology and systems approaches in a lovely, small hotel in the Málaga national forest. With 13 rooms it is perfect for supervision, group therapy and/or personal development. While it may be a different location, this is the athmosphere we want:
Surroundings for discovery and experience with lots of animals, plants, ruins and simply silence. The hotel has a calm atmosphere and is just the right size for working intensely together. We can have the place virtually to ourselves so we can be loud, laugh and cry if needed. Transportation to/from the airport is about 1 hour: we'll pick you up there. Typically 8 participants. I work fluently in English, German or Scandinavian languages (incl. groups).
Existential groups. My doctorate specialisation that I combine with CBT, Gestalt and groupwork. A retreat is just right if you feel like possible burnout, suffer after divorce, personal conflicts, grieving or you simply want a week off to take care of your own mental health.
Therapy groups can be arranged subject to availability and intake interviews. Maximum 6 participants. Contact: info (at) nordicheads.com.
