Introducing the Welldoing.org Facebook Therapist Community
At welldoing.org we are always looking for ways to improve our service, both for people looking for therapy and for our therapist members. The diary management system, where therapy sessions can be booked and paid for online, is one such innovation that has proved very popular. Today we can reveal another that we hope will be just as well received.
Therapists are invited to join welldoing.org Therapist Community, a closed Facebook group specially designed for therapists to talk, confidentially, to each other. Many therapists work in isolation, and we believe that this group will be an invaluable way to get answers and opinions from your peers to some of the challenges that arise in the practice of therapy.
This group is for swapping ideas, tools and strategies for how you manage your life as a therapist. It’s is a space to share posts, images and articles to spark debate and discussion. We feel confident that you will find it useful and inspiring.
Group administrator is Margaret Bent. She has worked extensively in customer support, and run several Facebook groups before, so she is aware of the potential problems. She is also the wife of co-founder Adam Bent, so she is very aware of the distinctive nature of welldoing.org. You'll also find our content editor Alice McGurran is a member of the group.
To become a member of the group, go to the page https://www.facebook.com/groups/185201172067788 and press the Join button. If you are a welldoing.org member, you will be approved without checking your membership association. Non-members of welldoing.org are welcome and encouraged to join, but they will need to be affiliated to one of the associations which welldoing.org accepts.
As with all such groups, there are rules of conduct listed on the page. We are confident that members will respect them, and their fellow members when they engage. The benefits of being able to share problems, ask advice, give recommendations are obvious. We are proud to be able to offer therapists the chance to help each other in this way.
