The gift we are thirsting for: An exploration of the therapeutic relationship
Suite 7, Abercromby Business Centre
Abercromby Street, Bridgeton
‘When I am in a therapeutic space with a client, regardless of age or stage or whatever may be going on for them, life is always flowing through them and flowing through me. I can experience that we are both connected at some level by this flow, and I can ask myself how I may be able to connect to this flow. Perhaps something new will emerge from even just holding this question in mind, as I prepare to meet every client.’ Moss.M (2018) ‘COSCA Journal of Counselling Scotland.’ Summer 2018.
‘If our best intentions are to help, can we in some way embody the potential for healing when we step into a client’s world?' Moss.M (2018) ‘BACP Thresholds Journal’ July 2018.
This experiential workshop is both an exploration and celebration of the potential for healing and growth in the therapeutic relationship. It is intended to help the therapist move more freely in the client’s world. Participants will be invited to share their practice and there will be some active and reflective time to welcome different ways of knowing. As well as considering Rogers core conditions and ‘Dadirri’, an aboriginal way of being, there is also the possibility we may discover our own patterns of growth and change in more tangible forms.
