Wild Therapy training course 2018
Unstone Grange, Unstone Derbyshire
Facilitated by Stephen Tame & Jayne Johnson

An exploration and celebration of therapy’s wildness: its capacity to transcend the limitations we place on our creativity and connectedness. Working outdoors in comparatively undomesticated settings encourages us to bring the other-than-human and more-than-human – animals, birds, plants, trees, hills, rivers, winds, dreams, ghosts, spirits – into the therapeutic process. Spending time ‘in nature’, as we say, can help us appreciate that we are ever anywhere else, always inhabiting and encountering our own nature. This is a one year course with Jayne Johnson and Stephen Tame, consisting of three residential’s in Derbyshire and Lancashire and one weekend in Bristol.

You will be supported to deepen a nature-based practice and appreciate its therapeutic value and applications. Aimed at trainee or practising therapists and those who are interested in the relationship between therapy and nature-based approaches, we will explore how ecopsychological approaches can be resourcing and supportive in working one to one, as well as within other settings and groups.

Embodied-Relational Therapy training course 2019
Unstone Grange, Unstone Derbyshire
Facilitated by Jayne Johnson, Stephen Tame plus other trainers from the ERT Training Team

ERT focuses on the trainee’s own work on their embodied relating with self and other, now and in the past, before encouraging them to apply this with their clients. The theme of relationality runs through the whole course; listening to our own feelings and responses as a key part of how we work both in the training and with clients, witnessing how we are moved around and impacted by our clients, yet remaining able to witness and reflect on our working relationship.This is a robust and established training, which has appealed to practitioners from many different therapeutic backgrounds. It is primarily experiential; theory arises out of practice
