About this event

Cost: £220

Over this weekend we want to explore ways in which the therapist holds power; ways in which the therapist holds vulnerability; and the variety of possible relationships between these two things.

While Andrew will focus on vulnerability, and Nick will focus on power – in line with our previous writings and presentations – we don’t for a moment imagine that this binary will remain intact over the weekend, nor should it.

Whether therapy is an art, a craft, a vocation – a common debate – there is little sharing and exploring in a safe and contained group setting of the reasons why we become therapists. So, if it is significant that therapists are rendered
vulnerable by the work – or, as Nick will present, attracted to the fruits of power – something that anticipates this might have been there all along.

This two day workshop will use a wide range of styles including presentation, discussion, supervision and experiential work.
