Putting Hope Back into the World: Therapist and Client show film of a PBSP Therapy workshop with Juliet Grayson and John Wilson

About this Event

John Wilson, who many of you know as host of Online Events, explores the changes made after 2 sessions of the body based therapy Pesso Boyden System of Psychotherapy.

John and Juliet presented a one hour webinar in January 2021 showing extensive film from John's PBSP therapy session at a 4 day residential in September 2020. This talk was called "PBSP from the Client's Perspective". You may have seen that film.

This is what a woman (Jane A.) said after watching the webinar:

"Watching tonight was amazing."

"You have both shared something that has evoked a great deal in me. "

"You reiterated what I am learning about my “soul” .. and now I think I know what I can do to open up the bits that hurt bad & I resist against. Lying in those arms would have been so hard for me, and yet I wanted what John had."

"I got lost in it."

"I became John."

"I cried and shook with him."

"So powerful.. thank you"

Due to public demand, John and Juliet are returning, to deepen the discussion of that client session. Using the same film shown in "PBSP from the Client's Perspective", and adding in some additional film that has never been shown before, this will become a 2 hour workshop. Juliet will explain more of the theory, and they will explore more of the process. Whilst the film is playing, Juliet will type comments in the chat room to help people 'spot' what she is paying attention to. John will also type comments about his subjective experience as the client.

They will explore the impact that 2 sessions of PBSP have had on his life.

This workshop will be hosted on the Zoom meeting platform where we will use our camera and microphones to interact with each other as a group.

To support practitioners in this time of extraordinary circumstances we are offering access to this group for a self-select fee.

The self-select fee is a radical inclusion policy to open learning for all colleagues. The guide price for this event is £20.00, however, we appreciate that income varies greatly in different locations and circumstances. Please contribute what you can to help us maintain inclusive professional training.

Juliet Grayson

I'm a psychosexual psychotherapist, coach, teacher, and have been working as a psychotherapist since 1991. I specialise in working with couples and sexual problems. I also work with people who are facing a life-limiting diagnosis. I am UKCP registered, NLPtCA accredited, COSRT accredited, and PBSP accredited as a psychotherapist. I am recognised by UKCP as a NLPtCA supervisor and COSRT supervisor. I am also an accredited PBSP supervisor and one of the first PBSP accredited trainers in the UK. I have a private practice in South Wales.

I am the author of Landscapes of the Heart: The Working World of a Sex and Relationship Therapist - over half of which is about PBSP therapy.

One thing I offer is Couples Intensive therapy sessions. A couple who are struggling come for 3 1/2 hours of therapy one afternoon, stay locally, and then we do another 3 1/2 hours of therapy the next morning. This is really helpful for moving through a particular issue, or moment of crisis. Online I offer these 7 hour sessions over 3 days.

After many years of exploring different types of therapeutic systems, in 2001, I discovered the Pesso Boyden System of Psychotherapy (PBSP). I am passionate about this because it is so effective, enabling clients not just to learn to cope with their issues, but to be able to (in many cases) fundamentally shift and change them, so that they see the world differently. As a client said to me, "It's like speed-dialling the unconscious." As yet, PBSP is not well known in the UK, and I want to change that. I have some groups that meet four times a year. These meet in London, Bristol, and South Wales. I also run two residential workshops every year in Somerset, and 2-day workshops in Oxfordshire and supervision days that are open to all, Recently I have been offering online structures via Zoom.

I work with the general public, and often work with other psychotherapists and counsellors who want help. Hence, I have been called "The Therapist's Therapist!"

We (Sally Potter, Sandy Cotter, and I are the three Accredited Trainers of PBSP in the UK) offer training courses for qualified therapists who want to learn PSBP. Therapists who are interested in adding Pesso Boyden to their repertoire can join a one-year or three-year training starting in 2021. Visit Pesso Boyden Training UK for details

I was the co-founder of StopSO (Specialist Treatment Organisation for Perpetrators and Survivors of Sexual Offences). StopSO has a UK wide network of psychotherapists and counsellors who offer therapy in the community for those at risk of sexual offending or re-offending. The aim of StopSO is to help potential perpetrators in order to stop new victims of sexual abuse from being created. This is a cost effective way of protecting society. Prevent rather than respond. I was chair from 2011-2019.

I designed and run (alongside a team) a twelve day programme, in six modules each of two days. This teaches therapists, counsellors, psychologists, coaches, and health professionals how to work with relationship issues and sexual problems. This course is approved by COSRT for CPD.
