Registration Deadline : 11 March

Acceptance and Commitment Training  (ACT) techniques to help us to thrive in our independent practice. 

It is so easy to get tied up in stress and worry when we are running our own child clinical psychology practices. A lot of us are also juggling other responsibilities in our families and wider communities. This workshop will help you to untangle yourself from the worries and fears that hold you back  as an independent practitioner. The day will be based on the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Training (ACT) model (Flaxman et al) and it will involve reflection, connection and direction through the 3 keys areas of ACT: open (skilfully relating to the inner world), noticing (inner world & behaviour) and active (towards who & what matters). The aim of the workshop is to help you be more the practitioner you want to be and guide you towards your own direction in a life and practice full of joy and fulfilment.

Becky Quicke is a Clinical Psychologist who worked in the NHS for 15 years before setting up her own independent practice in 2015. She has worked with children and families during that time, specialising in services for children who have experienced developmental trauma. She now fuses her own experiences as a juggling working Mum with her knowledge from the world of Clinical Psychology to deliver ‘From Fear to Fulfilment’ workshops, programs and retreats to busy women who feel held back by self doubt and the fear of failure. She lends courage to guide women towards a deeper connection with themselves so they can ride those waves of fear, contribute as the person, parent and partner they want to be and live a life full of joy and fulfilment.

The study day is also an opportunity for Faculty members working independently to network with others to share useful information and experiences about providing services in this sector, and to link up with those working in their geographical or specialist area.  

The workshop will be most relevant for members who already work independently. The workshop is subsidised by the Faculty and so attendance is free with lunch provided. 

Places are limited and so will booked on a first come basis. Please let us know with as much warning as possible if you are unable to attend after you have booked a place so that your place can be offered to someone else. 


This is a free event for members of Children, Young People and their Families Faculty only.
