In this talk, I will explore: the art of micro-tracking, the impact of The Witness figure, the precision required, using the body to ensure the changes last, the creation of a New Memory, and the fact that the healing is NOT in the relationship with the therapist, that the transfererence is transferred away from the therapist.
I know of no other method that can heal early attachment issues as effectively as Pesso Psychotherapy. When I came across PBSP as a client, I realised that despite 15 years of good quality talking therapy, my body was still loaded with trauma. Now, having been a PBSP client, my body is quiet and I feel deeply content.Find out more »
This interview touches on the role of spirituality in counselling. We know human relationships are crucial for people's mental health. How about the relationship with the self? How do we approach the sense of something bigger than us in therapy? Love is absolutely esential for people to develop a healthy view of themselves. Often, clients have never experienced unconditional love before coming to therapy. What is the role of a therapist in the spiritual life of clients? Is it appropriate to model unconditional love for them?Find out more »
Understanding what’s going on in our heads – how our brain’s work – can help us become better practitioners and help our clients make sense of their experiences in ways that reduce self-blame and self-criticism. Although the human brain is probably one of the most complex structures around, some of the principles on which it works are easily explained. You don’t have to be a neuroscientist to get a better understanding of the brain and nervous system!Find out more »
The aim of this video is to demonstrate practically how it is possible to work with clients taking extensive notes and descriptive genograms along the way. I developed this practice to compensate for a less than ideal memory. It also enables me to look at my notes prior to the clients' next session and visualise the genogram during the session.Find out more »
Self-Centering: An Inclusional, Expansive Antidote To Selfish And Self-Centred Reactivity – Louie Gardiner
In this conversation, Louie will open the space for recognising a crucial distinction between selfishness, self-centredness, and self-centering. Drawing on the principle of Natural Inclusion, she will illuminate how self-centering is an inclusional, expansive antidote to the separating; excluding actions that we may describe as selfish or self-centred. Why might it matter to recognise the distinctions? How can we notice the differences within us, and more importantly, equip ourselves and others to break free from the illusions that keep us locked in repeating patterns that perpetuate separation, distress, and loneliness?Find out more »
Byron Katie had an awakening experience in which she saw that everything she had believed was not true. From this, she devised a series of questions that invite us to challenge our belief systems. In this online event, we will explore her work together by putting our beliefs on paper and questioning whether they serve us.Find out more »

A Conversation Between The Psychodynamic And Person Centred Approaches – Roslyn Byfield & Mike Trier
Roslyn Byfield, a Psychodynamic counsellor, and Mike Trier, a Person Centred counsellor, explored some of the differences and similarities in the ways that each of us work with clients. Underpinning this discussion will be a curiosity about how far each of us have moved from where we started during our training. We will start our discussion comparing how each of us values the importance of linking the past to the present.Find out more »
Counselling Is Not Like Selling Shoes – How To Market Your Private Market Online: Content Creation – Karin Brauner
As a private practitioner, I know how tricky it can be to "put yourself out there" and "market" your practice.
It is for this reason that I've created a service built around supporting therapists to improve their websites with images, videos, and other content that tells the client exactly why they want to work with this particular counsellor.Find out more »
Couples Therapy: Do One-to-One Therapists Need Extra Training To Work With Couples? – Juliet Grayson
Juliet will describe her six modular (2 days per module) training in depth, so that listeners can find out more about what is involved in being a couple therapist. She will share models and discuss topics that may come up when working with couples, such as emotional fusion (co-dependence) and differentiation. She will also talk about unconditional love, and whether one should 'expect' this from a life partner. She will explore ways in which people are enmeshed and fused, and the different ways this can manifest.Find out more »
This event will offer an outline and illustration of The Soulcentric Development Wheel which is a nature-based model of human development. The model is based on over 30 years of research by Bill Plotkin and the Animas Valley Institute. The model expresses 8 stages of human development with 9 passages with mature adulthood and life-enhancing cultures being rooted in transpersonal experience and revelation.
This event is not a training, it is an opportunity to begin to hear about and explore this visionary model for our urgent time. Reading the resource book will help beforehand, but not essential. This event is offered with kind permission of Bill Plotkin.Find out more »
