Coping with suicidal clients in private practice
How do you react when a client brings up suicidal thoughts and feelings? Do you have a private practice policy around suicide? Do you feel comfortable asking clients if they are experiencing thoughts of suicide?
This 90-minute webinar will ask you to consider your own thoughts, feelings and beliefs about suicide and how these might impact your client work. Although suicide is discussed in training, it is still unnerving when it comes up in a session with a client. Having a policy statement in place will ensure that you are clear about when you will intervene with a referral to other services, and when you will trust your client to manage their thoughts of suicide safely*.
Emma will walk you through a suggested template for developing your own private practice policy statement around suicide.
*Please note: Further training may be needed regarding robust safety planning with a client at risk of suicide.
Emma Chapman is an experienced and passionate counsellor and trainer with a Masters in Clinical Counselling and a Post-Graduate Certificate in Education. Emma works in private practice in Cheshire. She specialises in working with maternal mental health and clients at risk of suicide.
Please note, if there are breakout groups in our webinars, you will be expected to have your camera on for these. If this is an issue, please contact Debbie at email@example.com.
A CPD certificate will be issued on completion of the webinar.

I'm a qualified counsellor but when I first started practicing I felt sometimes uninformed about some client issues. So now I run short, low priced webinars on common mental health issues to support newly qualified or trainee counsellors Book here https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/coping-with-suicidal-clients-in-private-practice-tickets-162082116975
