Workshops

Wooden Structure

Introduction

I run a number of workshops for members of the public as well as for professional CPD. Please come back and check this page regularly to see what workshops are planned or simply Contact Me for more information.

 

Information about current workshops is detailed and most are held in Central or West London but I’m happy to consider travelling to other locations on request.

Integrating Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

(with a touch of the transpersonal)

This has been a popular workshop since 2002!

 

This 3-day workshop, part-lecture and part- experiential, is aimed at counsellors, psychotherapists, students of counselling and psychotherapy, life coaches, trainers, and members of the public. The workshop makes integrating CBT easy and my transpersonal and integrative training helps bring CBT to life.

Addictions, Altered States and Uncontrollable Urges

A 2-day workshop, part-lecture and part-experiential, aimed at counsellors, psychotherapists, students of counselling and psychotherapy, life coaches, trainers, and members of the public.

 

I have over 30 years’ experience in the field of addiction. This exciting workshop is designed to get to the root of the addiction and help the layperson understand their addiction and student and graduate counsellors and psychotherapists assist people suffering from this debilitating condition.

Women and Weight

In this 2-day workshop we will explore our unwanted excess weight and look at this from a different point-of-view.

 

Is our weight a burden we’re forced to carry or does it hold a message from the unconscious that we need to hear? When we discuss our struggles with food and weight, we are talking not just about bodily urges but issues such as emotional appetites and wanting to be loved.

Gestalt and the Transpersonal

A two-day experiential workshop for counsellors, psychotherapists and student practitioners.

 

Drawing on gestalt and process-oriented psychotherapeutic techniques, I will teach you how to work with a variety of modalities to help assist the client out of their comfort zone. Working in this way bypasses the intellect and facilitates the process known by Gestaltists as ‘selfing’. By working subtly, using advanced skills, the call of the soul is more easily heard and inner guidance becomes more accessible.

 

By learning to listen to our dreaming body and its changing modalities; from talking to seeing; from hearing to sensing; from movement to feeling; we learn to harmonise with the natural process of life and to move with that, not seeking to control it, but simply observing its direction and facilitating that.

One Day Gestalt Refresher

A one-day experiential workshop for counsellors, psychotherapists and those in training, who have already attended my 3-day gestalt seminar at CCPE.

 

The workshop is intended to be a refresher day and participants are invited to bring along cases for supervision and guidance in gestalt techniques ~ although this isn’t essential ~ participants can work on their own material too.

Price is per person for a 1-day workshop inclusive of course materials.

Psychology and the Chakras

This workshop is open to members of the public as well as interested professionals.

 

A wonderful journey through the chakra system first laid down thousands of years ago in the yoga Upanishads ~ direct teachings received from the ancient Indian sages. In this workshop, drawing upon the model formulated by Anodea Judith, we will learn how the chakras have relevance in life today, how they pertain to developmental stages, how the chakras become out of balance, the types of issues this causes and how to diagnose chakra imbalances.

 

Everybody will leave with their own ‘chakra map’. The follow-up workshop ‘Balancing the Chakras’ goes into more detail on how to work with imbalances in the chakra system.

£225

Price is per person for a 2-day workshop inclusive of course materials.

Balancing the Chakras

This workshop is open to members of the public as well as interested professionals.

 

When the chakras are out of balance, the liberating and manifesting currents of the life force are blocked, causing many symptoms and is the reason many of us become stuck in repetitive patterns of behaviour.

 

In this workshop, we will learn how to balance the chakra system by working psychologically, physically and spiritually. Techniques will include massage (clothed), reflexology points, sound and breath work, Hatha yoga postures and others.

A Question of Love

A workshop (open to members of the public, as well as interested professionals) designed to explore the theory or romantic relationships and shed light on what causes us to get trapped in repetitive patterns of dysfunctional relationships or to have difficulty developing them at all.

£225

Price is per person for a 2-day workshop inclusive of course materials.

Good Grief

A two-day workshop designed for those working with the subject of dying, death and bereavement.

 

We will explore the grieving process from a variety of theoretical, spiritual, religious and cultural perspectives. In order to best serve our clients, we will look at our own loss history. If we have unfinished grief, how then do we help others face their own fears around living, dying and death; how do we help them deal with impending loss or to become more able to face the world without their loved one in it?
