The Value of Humour in Counselling

Therapy tends not to be humorous, with the focus being on serious life experience that impacts a person’s functioning. Delving into serious perspectives can, at times, deepen and strengthen those already dark aspects of our lives. Well-timed and appropriate humour can invite clients to explore beyond that shadowy figure, and so revitalise the other aspects of experience.

In this workshop, we’ll examine a number of potential benefits of humour, explore our own experiences of therapeutic humour, and hopefully find more of our own fun parts in the process.

This is one in a series of short CPD workshops, offering experiential and theory-based perspectives for counsellors and trainees. While best suited to those from a humanistic theory background, practitioners from other approaches are welcome too.

Booking policy: I don’t ask for a deposit, just a commitment that you will attend. You pay the full amount on or before the day of the workshop, either by cash or bank transfer. However, if you book a place and then cancel more than 48-hours before the workshop’s start time, you’ll be required to pay half the cost. And if you cancel within 48-hours of the workshop starting, or do not turn up on the day, you’ll be required to pay the full amount.
