5 full days 16th – 20th July 2018
This 5-day experiential training is week one of our 6TH ANNUAL SUMMER SCHOOL for Psychotherapists, Counsellors and other Mental Health Professionals.
The effects of trauma are so often expressed as destructive symptoms and beliefs that clients may seek to “get rid of” or “learn to put up with”. This internal conflict against one’s own self-preserving patterning can perpetuate rather than alleviate suffering.
In the 21st Century we have a better understanding than ever before of the impact of trauma on the developing brain and what makes healing, growth and restructuring possible and likely. Understanding the mind-body system as a life-seeking whole can open up pathways to expression and healing that are not available through purely cognitive or analytic approaches.
A greater sensitivity to somatic awareness will enable trainees to attend respectfully to a client’s physical, cognitive and emotional states, and their wider context. Understanding dissociative and re-associative process can help put the client back in their seat of natural power to restore, resolve and find meaning in all of life’s experiences.
You can complete this course as Accredited Continuing Professional Development, as a module of our Advanced Diploma in Contemporary Psychotherapy, and as core training for those working towards UKCP Registration through BeeLeaf.

It is hard to sum up this experience in one word so here are many! Imaginative, dynamic, fascinating, exciting, thought-provoking, reflective, strengthening, emotional, creative, informative, supportive, encouraging, real, expanding and nourishing. I can’t thank the team enough for this opportunity to develop personally and professionally!

Coming together as a small group, sharing experiences and questions in working creatively with trauma was engaging, challenging and rewarding. Exploring and recognising the mind, body connections, the interpersonal and intrapersonal perspectives, all helped to develop my understanding of the nature of trauma. We laughed, we tried out practices, we created together. It was a really worthwhile experience both professionally and personally. Thank you.
