About this event
The Bodylistening training programme is being offered in 4 weekend workshops. The programme is designed to introduce modern body-centred therapy, with a mixture of theory, demonstration and experiential work.
There is growing interest in the field of body psychotherapy and somatic psychology. Body-centred approaches to dealing with psychological problems are now well established. Recent advances in neuroscience explain how the body is involved in our growing sense of self, and how this can be affected during early development. Our bodies hold the key to old problems and new possibilities; Body Psychotherapy is a therapeutic approach which gets to the root of who we are, and what we can become.
Working with the body is a creative process. This programme will give you background theory on how and why body-centred techniques work. You will develop ‘bodylistening’ skills to contact and work directly with the body. This includes greater self-awareness of your own body as a channel of wisdom and useful information – an incredibly useful resource, both personally and professionally.
Who is this programme for?
– counsellors and psychotherapists who want to explore body-centred approaches to therapeutic work with clients;
– bodyworkers (massage therapists, teachers of body disciplines such as yoga, pilates, martial arts, etc) who are curious about the psychological and emotional impact of their work, and want to work creatively with what emerges;
– anyone who is considering a move into body-focused practice.
