Working with the body
Over six Wednesday evenings, we will explore some of the different therapeutic approaches to working with the body. I am a Polyvagal Theory informed therapist, and the content of this course will be highly influenced by the theory.
This will be an experiential training, with plenty of skills practice. I will be invited participants to get to know their own bodies better, in order to develop an embodied approach to their clinical work.
Among other things we shall be exploring:
- Autonomic shifts in ourselves and our clients.
- The different areas of the body to explore with clients.
- Working with "stuck" energy.
- Increasing awareness of our own bodies.
- How to discharge energy.
- How to talk to the body.
This training will be held over Zoom, on a Wednesday evening between 5pm - 8pm on the following dates:
- 1st September
- 8th September
- 15th September
- 22nd September
- 29th September
- 6th October
You will receive an 18-hour CPD certificate.
