Event description

Description

Charles O’Leary will offer a two day workshop on counselling couples and families that will include many updated features of past workshops, and reflection on forty years as a person-centred couple and family therapist.

To be presented, demonstrated and explored:

  • Rogers’ six conditions applied to relationships
  • Active as well as client-centred therapist involvement
  • Common factors in all good therapy and unique to client-centred therapy
  • DVDs of client sessions plus in-room demonstration of work with difficult clients
  • Revised list of O’Leary’s tasks of person-centred couple and family therapists, including the roles of translator, moderator and host.

EXPANDED CONTENT for participants’ self-discovery:

  • The counsellor’s inner dialogue: facing fear and inadequacy as well as over confidence and control; the search for confidence that includes humility
  • Dialogue between the counsellor and their role models, including Carl Rogers
  • Reflection on your own past, current and future clients and the person you bring to meet them
  • Five ways to be unhelpful as a person-centred couple and family therapist and six ways to be helpful
  • The counsellors’ life-cycle: advantages of being a beginner, in mid-career and in later career.

Charles O Leary has a sensitive, respectful, caring and accepting way of being, which encourages people to access, and ultimately to communicate, their personal thoughts and feelings.

"He inspires me to be the best I can with the clients I work with."
Fiona McCarthy, Director, Counselling Centre at Knock Shrine, Ireland

“Charlie O’Leary has a powerful reputation as a family therapist and as a teacher of family therapy. Above all, he is an observer of families and family life whose commentary on what he observes combines truth and humor in a fashion which might be likened in British terms to ‘John Cleese with a doctorate in therapy.'”

Dave Mearns

Charles is the author of The Practice of Person-Centred Couple and Family Therapy (Palgrave McMillan, 2012) and Counselling Couples and Families: A Person-Centred Approach (London, 1999), the first book to integrate Carl Rogers’ therapeutic conditions with couple and family therapy. During the early 1970s he studied at and was a member of the Center for Studies of the Person, alongside Carl Rogers. He regularly teaches family and couple work in the US, Austria, UK, Ireland, Germany, Argentina and Italy. A Clinical Fellow of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, Charles has a private practice in Denver, Colorado.
