The Hidden Virtue: Towards a New Understanding of Humility in Counselling and Psychotherapy – Heather Dale
There is a pivotal point where the therapist can become convinced that they know what is ‘best’ for their client, albeit at an unconscious level. This may lead to a rupture in the therapeutic relationship.

The debate continues amongst practitioners about whether grief should ever be considered a disorder; many practitioners believe that grief is a normal response to loss and should not be medicalised whilst others believe that grief can become disabling and may need specialist intervention. This talk will consider the current controversy and will discuss the evidence for a complicated grief disorder. Information on recognising when grief has become complicated will be offered along with a discussion of international treatment initiatives and an update on what is happening in Ireland and the UK.Find out more »
In this interview, Wendy is in conversation about Ancestral Lineage through a Nature-Based Perspective. She will wonder whether we have forgotten the deep roots and stories in the marrow, the DNA of our bones, thereby feeling disconnected from the depth of our roots in deep Ancestral lineage, both human and more-than-human. Such a forgetting or repressing, contributes to a sense of aloneness, lost, and longing that may haunt us leading to what we might call Depression or Anxiety, and disconnection from our own authentic and Earth-given nature, dignity, and true inheritance.Find out more »
