TWO DAY WORKSHOP - Processing your “Stuff”

Professional Development for counsellors psychologists and Helping Professionals - 2018

 Co-facilitated by Silvia Camastral & William Diplock

2nd -3rd June, 2018
9.30 am – 4.30pm

This two day workshop is for counsellors, psychologists, teachers and anyone from the helping professions.

We will provide participants with an opportunity to address their own personal issues using experiential approaches. (E.g. Process oriented methods, Gestalt and Body focused Work).  Practitioners will be able to process their own issues within the safety of the group.

Opportunity will be given to process your personal issues arising from your work with clients, such as transference and countertransference, self-care etc

This will be done in a safe and professional environment.

The workshop will adopt an Action Reflection Approach, providing theoretical frameworks which underpin the approaches taken. This will enable the professional to integrate the approaches taken into their framework of counselling. Some warm up experiential exercises will help us bring forth the deeper issues to process.
