"If you are interested in working with dreams with clients, this workshop will give you the confidence, knowledge and skills to develop your practice." - Event Attendee 

Please note that if you are in crisis this workshop will not be suitable for you.

What are dreams?

The answer from science is that sleep has several phases of activity that recur periodically in Rapid Eye Movement (REM). This is when the eyes dart about under the eyelids and the respiratory rate changes. Science offers no satisfactory far less a consensus assessment of the dream’s function.

But what of the art of dreaming?

If we spend a third of our life in sleep and a quarter of sleep in dreaming, we might do well to come up with our own answers, from experience. If you feel stuck in your life or your work, dreams can mainline the cause and the solution from your unconscious. You will learn your own dream symbols and images and gain insight into your inner life.

Who this workshop is aimed at

This workshop is for anyone who is interested in their dreams, as well as for therapists to learn how to incorporate it into their practice. 

Why you should attend

Most people are intrigued by their dreams and want to understand what they are trying to tell the dreamer. For the therapist, knowing your own dream lexicon and associations will sharpen your hearing of your client’s dream and perhaps move the work out of a stuck place.
