PICT Trauma & Abuse Trainers

PICT trainers are chosen for their professional qualifications, practical knowledge, experience and their reputation for excellent communication skills. We use a range of learning techniques as our aim is to provide students with the highest possible standard of training and enable them to make immediate use of their learning. We want students to leave the PICT course with a rich bank of knowledge and solid practical solutions.

Our training is informed, evidence-based, very practically focused and always delivered in an engaging way which leads to excellent evaluations through student feedback. Students will always be able to refresh their knowledge as all their extensive and well organised training materials remain with them.

Lindsay Schofield - PICT Trainer

Lindsay Schofield
Lindsay is a psychotherapist, trainer and supervisor with a private practice near Croydon, South East London. Her training has been broad, more recently including specialist post graduate training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, supervision, trauma and dissociation, and working therapeutically with children.

In therapy, an empathic and informing stance is important to her - she wants clients to feel safe and understood whilst working purposefully towards "feeling better". As a trainer, she aims to encourage and equip students to reach their potential, and as a supervisor she enjoys working collaboratively to support and enable supervisees to offer effective treatment whilst developing professionally.

Having been invited to present other training courses, Lindsay declares an unashamed preference for PICT having found it personally life-changing. She says it is a privilege to work with PICT trainees, and takes delight in observing students grow individually as well as professionally whilst they learn the model. In addition to presenting the PICT course and workshops, Lindsay also offers training in counselling, listening skills, and her own workshops on counselling children. She is an accredited member of the BABCP (British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy), the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and the ACC (Association of Christian Counsellors) and a senior accredited member of the the NCP, (National Council of Psychotherapists).

Lindsay is married, and has two sons and a menagerie of animals.
