The Impact of Shame
Shame can emerge in many forms during counselling sessions, supervision work and in training situations. At times we may contribute to a shame reaction in our clients, supervisees, or students. If well supported, shame can often be an opportunity for healing and integration.
This workshop provides time and space to explore shame from a humanistic perspective, to examine safely experiences of shame in our own histories and how these experiences can impact our work.
- Workshop: The Impact of Shame
- Date: TBA
- Cost: £60 (concessions available for previous workshop attendees and those on low incomes)
- Venue: Friends Meetinghouse, 22 School Lane, Liverpool, L1 3BT
This is a one-day CPD workshop suitable for humanistic counsellors and trainees. Participants from other approaches are also welcome.
My workshops are experiential, which means that I want participants to actually experience the Gestalt therapy approach rather than just being provided with intellectual information. Gestalt therapy is primarily non-verbal and as such I aim for workshops to give participants a real feel for this approach.
Please note: Participants have choice throughout in relation to taking part in exercises and experiments. Handouts and CPD attendance certificates are supplied. Tea, coffee, water and biscuits will be provided. Lunch is not included but there are many eating places nearby. There is disabled access to this venue.
Booking policy: I don’t require a deposit, just a commitment that you will attend. You pay in full on the day by cheque or cash. This avoids the hassle of sending payment through the post. However, if you reserve a place and then cancel within a week before the workshop I would want you to pay a cancellation fee of £20. And if you don’t attend on the day of the workshop the full amount is payable.
