Embodied Relating:
The Ground of Psychotherapy

This course is based on Nick’s book Embodied Relating: The Ground of Psychotherapy, and aims to give the ideas of the book a base in experience, and to apply them to clinical situations.

I believe that all relationship is initially between bodies: embodiment and relationship are inseparable, both in humans and in the practice of psychotherapy. If we explore embodiment, we encounter relationship; if we explore relationship, we encounter embodiment. Therapy is more powerful when the practitioner is able to recognise the constant interplay between these two aspects of being human, and to follow and support the shifts of charge from one to the other. This allows us to identify and process the many situations in which relational problems between therapist and client are best understood as issues of embodiment.

On the course I aim to bring participants back to the ground of embodiment, and to discover how we can work from our bodies without necessarily doing anything other than sitting in chairs and talking – although we certainly will be exploring other channels of relationship. This training is for body psychotherapists, verbal psychotherapists and counsellors, and other practitioners interested in developing an integrated approach to embodiment. It will include discussion, experiential work and supervision.
