Graduation event and seminar/workshop


We are privileged to have Dr Andrew Reeves present students with their diplomas at their graduation ceremony on the evening of Thursday, 2nd July.


During the afternoon, Dr Reeves will give a talk (followed by a workshop) entitled…


‘Tight Ropes and Safety Nets: Supporting Young People at Risk in Counselling’


This will deal working with clients who present ‘at risk’. From suicidal ideation and self-injury – which can challenge even the most experienced practitioner – to when the client is a child or young person and the challenge can sometimes feel even greater, with competing expectations from other stakeholders, such as schools and family/carers.  


Knowing when and how to raise issues of concern with others and managing the young person’s expectations surrounding confidentiality can feel like walking a tight rope.  This short seminar will reflect on those challenges and consider how, as practitioners, we can also put some safety nets in to support our work: making evidence-based decisions; creating a clear narrative to articulate practice; and understanding how our personal responses will shape and inform our actions.


Dr Andrew Reeves is a Senior Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist with over 25 years experience of working in a range of settings, including with children and young people.  He also previously worked as a child protection social worker, with children and families, and additionally worked for many years in secondary care mental health settings in a crisis team.  He has written extensively about working with risk, including Counselling Suicidal Clients (Sage, 2010), Challenges in Counselling: Self-Harm (Hodder Education, 2010), and Working with Risk in Counselling and Psychotherapy (Sage, 2015), in additional to several other texts.  He now works as a counsellor, supervisor, consultant, author and freelance trainer.  

He was Lead Author on the Counselling MindEd resource.
