Essentials of Trauma Therapy

This course brings you knowledge and skills for working with clients who are emotionally overwhelmed, prone to dissociating, or traumatised. By understanding the nature and effects of trauma on the brain and body, this course equips therapists with practical skills for psycho-education and working with trauma.

Essentials of Supervision

This course brings you the essential knowledge and skills for competence as a supervisor – whether working with supervisees as individuals, groups, or in peer supervision format.

Consulting Essentials 1: for therapists who want to work with organisations.

This course has been designed to meet a growing demand for mental health practitioners within companies and other organisations, equipping participants with enhanced skills to engage with work-related issues.

Consulting Essentials 2: Gaining Entry, Your Offer & Contracting with Organisations

This is the second in our Essentials of Consulting series. Just getting started is probably the biggest step in the whole process of setting up a consulting practice. From the prospective consultant’s point of view, there are all of ‘them’ – the organisations and businesses with their multiple functions and myriad issues - and there is ‘just’ you... why would you not be daunted?

Consulting Essentials 1 & 2

Consulting Essentials 1 has been designed to meet a growing demand for mental health practitioners within companies and other organisations, equipping participants with enhanced skills to engage with work-related issues.

Embodiment taster session

  • FREE
  • Zoom

Would you like to use breath, body, and sound for emotional regulation with your clients?

Are you interested in combining body-based approaches in your therapy work?

Then you are welcome to invite yourself inwards at this free CPD event. Robert Rees and Tamsin Olivier will facilitate this 90-minute Zoom CPD working in your body with subtle and yet powerful approaches to client work.

It’s designed for therapists who want to move past uncertainty or unskilled, or perhaps feeling silly, towards confidence in offering embodied approaches and breath work with clients.

In this taster session, we will be working with the breath, working in your body with subtle and yet powerful approaches to client work – as a potential antodote to an increasingly digital world which is disembodied.
