Caz Binstead

Caz is an experienced therapist and supervisor, working full-time in private practice (in the UK). She is co-lead of #TherapistsConnect; the large networking platform, and is founder of it’s popular student project #TraineeTalk, and more recently, #TherapistsCreate.

She specialises in the field of private practice, with a special interest in the growth and maintenance of both ethical, and, thriving practice. For #TherapistsConnect (and hosted in partnership with Onlinevents), she was creative lead on the two day conference, ’Private practice 2021 : surviving and thriving in uncertain times’, where she also chaired several discussions/debates, and has worked extensively in this area – providing consultation, copywriting services and workshops/training, to hundreds of therapists setting up, and working in private practice. She was instrumental in the creation of the Private practice toolkit, at the British Association for Psychotherapy and Counselling (BACP). She acted as the Private Practice executive divisional lead on the project, and also contributed to a large number of both written and recorded, resources. It was an honour for her to be invited to present at the BACP AGM 2021, in recognition of this extensive work.

Caz believes in working for, and representing, the ‘therapist on the ground’, and is a relational activist and writer. She has hosted and facilitated, several high profile events for therapists, including, the #TherapistsConnect SCoPEd debates, National Counsellors’ Day 2020, PCCS Books Conference, and the last two BACP Student Conferences. She feels passionately about providing safe spaces for all human beings to be seen, included and respected.
