About this workshop:

In this workshop we will explore in greater depth some of the theory underpinning the Bodywork approach to Psychotherapy.  Body Psychotherapy is a holistic approach that integrates thinking, feeling and the body’s reactions to the environment into the therapeutic relationship, and sees the mind and body as a unified whole, and as such is fully compatible with current advances in neuropsychology and trauma work. The workshop will touch on such concepts as body armouring, energetic flow, psycho-somatic blocks, trauma, and character formation, as well as some of the techniques of Bioenergetic and Biodynamic Psychotherapy. This will involve working experientially in the group from an embodied approach and participants will be expected to be involved in the process and to be willing to engage in the exercises and relate the model to themselves and their practice. At times the workshops will allow for processing of the content among the group. 

This workshop is suitable for qualified counsellors and psychotherapists, and students at Level 5 and above of their training, and participants will have the opportunity to practice some of their learning working in pairs with each other.

Please note: the workshop is a confidential space and all participants must agree to this boundary. Please bring along a cushion or pillow and wear comfortable clothing.
