Being a client for individual and couples counselling, going for individual and group supervision, attending marriage workshops with my partner has provided me additional and invaluable training and knowledge on how to provide effective therapy for my clients. Along with all of my qualifications, every year I attend two or three trainings or conferences as it is crucial to learn new skills, to fine tune and up-grade my therapeutic skills.
