Training

Courses and Workshops

I facilitate integrative trainings for coaches and therapists looking to learn techniques from each other’s approaches. Registration is now open for the workshop on Sunday 7th April at the Association of Jungian Analysts, 7 Eton Avenue, London NW3 3EL from 10am to 5pm. The cost for the day is £120, with a concessionary rate of £80. A CPD certificate is provided.

The launch workshop on 17th February 2019 was well-received by an eclectic group of experienced professionals from executive coaching, business strategy to psychoanalytical and integrative psychotherapy and spiritual resonance - and here are some testimonials:

"The workshop was life-changing personally and professionally. Your passion and enthusiasm was contagious and your knowledge incredible. I learned so much, I feel a lot more confident". MS

"I took away a reminder of the power of art, imagery and bodywork”. RC

“A very special workshop, competently and warmly delivered. A wonderful blend of ideas and experiences”. SC

“I’m taking away a real curiosity and interest in combining coaching in my (therapy) practice”. EH

So if you’re a therapist looking to expand into the corporate world, or a coach whose clients require deeper psychological or emotional support, this grounding in integrated psychotherapy and coaching offers practical training for the eclectic professional.

Looking from both reflective and directive positions, we will learn, through the lenses of therapy and coaching, how to journey alongside our clients as they gain insight, confidence, healing, and whatever else they need from us.

Through teaching, practical exercises and demonstrations, we will learn how to:

- help clients to ‘let go’ of a fixed mindset
- generate self-belief in clients struggling with self-doubt
- work therapeutically with dreams
- access the innate wisdom of the body
- use objects to represent and heal relationships
- harness anger and prepare clients for the ‘big avoided conversation'.

Supervision for counsellors, therapists and coaches

Supervision_3.jpg

My approach to supervision is reflective, encouraging and challenging, and embraces different orientations.

Although my training is integrative transpersonal, I also work with students and therapists trained in psychodynamic and person-centred schools.

In a relaxed and reflective environment, I encourage you to talk about your work, explore challenges and successes, help you manage boundaries and gain confidence as a therapist. We might reflect on parallel processes, explore transference and counter-transference, work with the bodily sense and use visualisation, drawing or meditation.

By looking at the therapeutic relationship through the lens of the supervisory relationship, we can learn more about your clients and how best to serve them.

Counsellors and therapists often work in isolation, so supervision is a place where you can openly explore your work and learn how to develop a successful practice as part of a therapeutic community.

“We see things not as they are, but as we are.”
