I am pleased to announce that I have launched a new venture, Schema Therapy Skills, and from May 2019 I will be teaching monthly one- and two-day therapy-skills workshops from my large, comfortable office in East Finchley. Although a number of organisations in the UK now teach the ISST-approved series of workshops that lead to accreditation as a schema therapist, an increasing number of counsellors, psychotherapists, psychologists and other health professionals may not want to train as schema therapists (at least not yet), but are interested in learning key schema therapy concepts, ways of formulating and working with complex cases, as well as core skills from the ST toolbox.
My skills workshops will cover a range of subjects that will be interesting to and highly useful for fellow professionals working in a wide range of settings and from many different modalities. I am keen to limit group sizes to a maximum of six, to offer an intimate, friendly environment in which there is ample space for questions, discussion, skills practice and input on therapeutic challenges or difficult cases.
The first one-day workshop, Working with Imagery: Powerful, Transformative Techniques to Enhance Your Clinical Practice, will be held on 31st May 2019 and cost £180 including refreshments, training materials and certificate of attendance. On this workshop you will learn how to use techniques such as imagery rescripting to transform the meaning and emotional content of upsetting memories from your client’s past. I will also explain the many ways in which imagery can be used diagnostically and to help people with present-day and future challenges.
Future workshops include:
Working with Modes: Embracing Complexity & Achieving Integration, 21st June 2019 (£180)
Introduction to Schema Therapy, 1st & 2nd July 2019; 12th & 13th September 2019; 14th & 15th November 2019; 13th & 14th January 2020 (£340)
