About this event
“My clients are human animals, interdependent with the plants, animals, soil, bacteria and other non-human beings around them. They yearn for connection with nature, they grieve the loss of other-than-human life.”
Take the chance to experience and include the other-than-human in therapeutic work.
The world of psychotherapy, counselling and similar practices are waking up in new ways to the crucial connections and disconnections between clients and nature.
This weekend workshop offers you the opportunity to undomesticate your practice – to include the wild in your work, both indoors and outdoors, in your mind and in your body, and in the connection you offer to those you work with.
This is an opportunity to experience, learn, and gain confidence in working therapeutically in partnership with the other-than-human.
It is also an ideal taster for the One Year Wild Therapy training, originally created by Nick Totton, author of ‘Wild Therapy’ and led in 2019 by Allison and Stephen.
N.B. This workshop is non-residential. Some accommodation is available by separate arrangement.
