THE SPIRITUAL ART OF THERAPY

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 by-passes 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 anonymised cases for supervision and guidance in gestalt techniques (although this isn’t essential ~ participants can work on their own material too).

CHAKRAS AND THE DEVELOPMENTAL STAGES

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 issue 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.

BALANCING THE CHAKRAS

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

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?
