What does this course have to offer?

The course will help participants begin to develop a psychosocially-informed awareness of counselling and psychotherapy practice in a pluralistic world.

What does “psychosocially-informed awareness” mean?

Being psychosocially-aware means:

  • Thinking about the social and cultural context of lived experience, the struggles of living, and the diversity of that experience

  • Critically considering the inter-connectedness between the social and cultural world and the inner world of the individual

  • Reflecting on how the social and cultural context impacts our work as counsellors and psychotherapists


Who is it for?

This course is open to qualified counsellors and trainee counsellors in the last year of their training who are willing to:

  • Explore, reflect and think critically about themselves as practitioners, bringing some of their own experience, case-examples and dilemmas

  • Reflect on the social and cultural contexts of themselves within the group

  • Bring an open mind

  • Embrace ambiguity and complexity


About this course:


    • This four-day course explores some of the assumptions that underpin counselling and therapy, including:

    • Thinking about the roles others play in the development of self and other, how we construct senses of self and other, and the purposes of these identities

    • Exploring the ways, we think about the things we struggle with in life (including the role of diagnosis and mental illness/wellbeing)

    • Opening up spaces to look at how we construct our roles as counsellors and therapists, from a range of counselling modalities, within the social and cultural context.

    • This course draws on developments in counselling and psychotherapy literature and psychosocial studies. Reading material will be given ahead of each day.


Each day builds on the previous day, and will consist of discussion, input, some experiential work, case examples or supervision of clientwork, or audio-visual resources.

A written reflection on the day: After each workshop each participant is invited to email me a short (maximum 400 words) reflection on how you find yourself responding to the topics discussed and what questions you’re finding yourself asking. Further details about this reflective task will be given nearer the time.
