Comfy chair - counselling CPD residential
Visit this year, we will be exploring narrative within the counselling and psychotherapy world, its role in promotion, training, and culture.
As the organiser, I found last year’s Comfy Chair to be a rich and rewarding experience with many learning curves, insights, and revelations.
Getting to know each of you was, of course, a cornerstone of the experience, however, it was the diversity of (therapeutic) culture that I found myself particularly drawn to… and so this year’s theme will be 'stories and cultural narrative' from the counselling and psychotherapy community.
Stories about training, about private practice, about the theory that we are drawn to (and why), about our sense of belonging, and conversely of the isolation we can experience in practice.
- What is the story of therapy? What are your hopes for the next chapter?
- How many different narratives are there?
- Which are the most valuable and which have the most potential to be limiting, even working to harm the growth of our sector?
At #TheComfyChair2020, we will explore these and other questions, drawing on the experiences of those in attendance, and building bridges between the different therapeutic cultures that have sprung into existence in the UK (and beyond).
