ScapeCoat Retreat Workshop

Saturday 21st September 2019 9.30 am -10pm One day Workshop

This workshop day is a deeply healing and nurturing experience.

"A scapecoat is a coat that details in painting, writing, and with all manner of things pinned and stitched to it all the name calling a woman has endured in her life, all the insults, all the slurs, all the traumas, all the wounds, all the scars" Women who run with Wolves

Following the work of Clarissa Pinkola-Estes, I invite you to create a scapecoat, working creatively within a supportive group to provide the opportunity to access your inner 'wild' self, and to draw on feminine archetypal knowledge and wisdom. The day is scheduled to last for 12 hours, ending with a celebration and a shared feast of nurturing food.

Cost £135. All creative materials, coat, refreshments, lunch, and dinner will be provided. A CPD certificate for 12 hours will be supplied.

 Some of the feedback I received from last years Scapecoat Retreat Day...

"For me it was a truly amazing day. The environment you offered enabled me to sink back into the womb. The music, the food, the drinks all held and nourished me while I went back to my battles to sing over the bones and to then birth (bring new life to) my healing""The love, support and respect in the room created a very special space. It was a privilege to be a part of such a powerful and empowering day." "“What a special day! Once again I am blown away by the strength of women, and I am proud to be a woman!"

Places are limited and need to be booked in advance so that I can arrange for coats and materials. If you're interested, please get in touch ASAP!

Cyberpsychology - the digital context of clients- part 1

Saturday 7th September 2019

10-5pm  one day workshop

Cyberpsychology is an important and growing field in psychology, one which seeks to understand the impact of technology on humans.

Our world, and the world of our clients, both young and old is becoming increasingly digitalised. It is impossible to ignore, and important to understand our new and emerging digital identities and boundaries in the therapeutic context order to work effectively.

How does social media affect your clients? What is online disinhibition?  In this session I share some of my research findings, clinical experience and digital dilemmas. We explore important developments, challenges, risks and benefits of technology including social media and gaming, to help practitioners develop strategies for working with clients within a digital context.

This sessions forms part 1 of the Cyberpsychology series but is also a stand alone CPD workshop.

£65 including light refreshments. CPD certificate provided.

cyberpsychology - the digital context of therapists    

date tbc  2019

9.30 - 10pm one day retreat

It is impossible to ignore the impact of the digital technology on the therapeutic relationship. Do you text clients? What will your clients see if they google you? Have you considered the ethics of engaging with clients online, or considered the potential benefits of texting or emailing clients?

Many therapists are unsure of how to engage with the digital world, and simply avoiding is no longer an option. Research in this area is emerging and as therapists it is important to understand our new and emerging digital identities and boundaries in the therapeutic context order to work effectively.

 In this session I focus on challenges, risks and benefits of technology and the therapeutic space, to help practitioners develop strategies for working within a digital context.

This sessions forms part 2 of the Cyberpsychology series but is also a stand alone CPD workshop.
