JBT offers high quality evidence based CPD for Counsellors, therapists, health and social care professional and other interested parties. Our aim is to provide highly qualified and experienced practitioners who have a strong specialist identity to enable you to keep abreast of the latest thinking and developments in counselling, health and social care. For example perhaps you are a teacher involved in the pastoral care of your pupils – it might well be of advantage to you to know more about current thinking on self harm or disordered eating. Perhaps you are a therapist working in an agency – you might want to know about the latest developments in working with depression. JBT is here to respond to your training needs and to offer you evidence based high quality workshops.

Spring 2013 has seen a further development of JBT with an increasing demand for corporate training. Care UK is the latest major organisation for whom Julia has provided specialist training.  Their professional healthcare workers have benefited from a bespoke 3 day course providing an insight into the psychological understanding of emotional eating.
The staff of Burrswood Christian Hospital are currently undertaking intensive training in eating disorders, in order to provide a sound knowledge base for their staff when caring for patients either pre or post bariatric surgery. The counsellors of Lighter Life, the well known slimming organisation, have also benefited from Julia’s training. This has enhanced their knowledge of the psychological aspects of compulsive and binge eating when dealing with their specific client group.

The Understanding Your Eating programme offers a time-limited manualised and workbook accompanied provision for clients with disordered eating. The protocol is amply supported by research literature and has been tested in three initial research studies. Providers seeking to address the specific needs of emotional eaters may find Understanding Your Eating a cost effective research based intervention which is client acceptable.
