The workshop:

A workshop for counsellors and psychotherapists interested in deeply exploring body awareness in therapy and illuminating working with non-verbal phenomena and countertransference

Mind and body are fully integrated and what the therapist notices in the client’s body, or experiences in her own body, energy, tension, holding or other non-verbal phenomena is vital to bring into awareness and into the work with our clients. Today, our clinical work with traumatised and abused clients, both adult and child, coupled with recent neuroscience research, emphasises how trauma is held in the body and how a bodily understanding is essential for therapists working with trauma, anxiety and depression. This workshop will deeply explore body awareness in therapy and illuminate working with non-verbal phenomena and countertransference. We will draw on a range of body psychotherapy theory, clinical examples and group discussions, whilst reflecting on the therapists felt countertransference in her own body. We will incorporate a newer understanding of the Autonomic Nervous System, Poly Vagal Theory, the Breath, Movement and felt energy in the therapist’s body as key pillars of the day.

During the workshop we will explore:

Key aspects of psychoanalytic understanding of the relationship with Mind and Body

The History of the Body in Science and Therapy: Exploring the work and research of Freud, Wilhelm Reich, Laura & Fritz Pearls (founders of Gestalt therapy) , Eric Berne, Patruska Clarkson, Babette Rothschild, Bessel van der Kolk, Pat Ogden, Nick Totton, Bessel van der Kolk, Robert Shaw, Daniel Stern, Peter Levine, Stephen Porges, Allan Schore, Danielle Siegel & Susie Orbach
