Event description
Working with the body as a tool for communication with ourselves and with our clients.

About this event

An introduction in to working with the body as a tool for communication with ourselves and with our clients. This workshop will focus on breath and movement techniques to support the therapeutic relationship. Breath is our life force. We breathe in life and we breathe out our last breath before we die. Dance movement therapist Ana Halprin states that: Breath is movement made visible.

There will be time to integrate theory in to practice and consider clinical examples of how to introduce embodied approaches creatively in counselling and psychotherapy.


  • Learn specialised breathing and movement techniques to support you and your work with clients.
  • Synthesise theory in to practice including case study examples of how to introduce these techniques with clients in times of need.
  • Discover your own breath and movement patterns and how they can serve you and your clients.
  • Build confidence working with the intelligence of the body.
  • Develop embodied listening through increased awareness of how your body responds in relationship with your clients.
  • Share and enrich professional practice with peers.


  • Breath moves the body and impacts communication and our ability to relate.
  • When tense we hold our breath
  • Our organs do not function well when tense and stress decreases our immune system
  • Awareness of how we breath and move can help us to develop authentic ways of relating by understanding how we feel in the moment
  • Research suggests that practicing breathing techniques and mindful movement exercises can support motivation, confidence, communication, mental health, relationships, resilience and wellbeing.
  • And improve physical posture, immune system, digestion, circulation, concentration and sleep!
