Towards the end of the TWM foundation course and when you feel ready you can discuss with your guide and tutors about becoming a practitioner. When there is agreement between you, you can begin working with clients under supervision. You will be supported during this phase of your training to continue your learning; work according to our code of ethics and develop a reflexive practice.
In your year of practitioner training you will continue with monthly individual sessions and attend bi-monthly practitioner development workshops. You will also be encouraged to re-sit any of the foundation course workshops to gain a deeper understanding of the toolkit.
You will need your own public liability insurance and to be registered with ICO before you begin to practice under supervision.
Moving into practice is a gradual process as you gain confidence. The support of your supervisor is always there for challenges along the way.
Many practitioners wish to work towards accreditation and be listed as a practitioner on the Absolute Specialists website. They may then wish to apply to work with our social enterprise Absolute Specialists Wellbeing.
Accreditation is awarded to trainee practitioners when they have a deep understanding of TWM, can practice intuitively and with compassion, flexibility and confidence.
They will have committed to abide by the Absolute Specialists Code of Ethics and agreed to an individual plan of continuing professional and personal development with their supervisor.
Options for continuing personal and professional development offered by Absolute Specialists Ltd are: individual sessions with a supervisor; practitioner development days; retreats and workshops and supporting the trainer on the foundation course. Practitioners sometimes choose to broaden their skills by training in specialist areas and in related therapies.
Accredited status is reviewed annually. There is a process of appeal for anyone who wants to challenge a decision not to renew their accreditation.
Support is in place for practitioners as they begin to develop their own practices, form local hubs in their community and build their client lists. We have topics for discussion on practitioner development days where we share knowledge on building websites, creating newsletters, finding premises to work from and training in specialist areas.
