About this event

Much of our clients’  formative experiences are of movement and touch. It is important for our clients that we have some confidence and competence to work in these core channels of their experience.

Our bodies are in constant movement, mostly unnoticed. This is an opportunity to open and refresh our insight into how our clients move, how we move, and how our clients move us. We will be working with small and large movements, intentional and unconscious movement, in a gentle and supported way.

Similarly, our clients are always experiencing touch – the touch of fabric on skin, the touch of our emotional contact. We will be introducing a frame for working more confidently and intentionally with touch, in support of our clients safety and unfolding process.

This work will be held and explored through a relational framework. Exploring how to make use of and think about, our complex embodied responses to our clients. The weekend will be experiential, underpinned by theoretic input drawn from Embodied-Relational Therapy.

Group size 8-14 participants. This workshop would serve as useful ‘taster’ for the Embodied-Relational Therapy training starting in Derbyshire in April 2020.
