Wild Therapy Weekend Workshop
Bringing Therapy into The Wild and Wildness into Therapy 19th & 20th October 2019
Two days of ecopsychology for counsellors, psychotherapists, and others.
The world of psychotherapy, counselling and similar practices are waking up in new ways to the crucial connections and disconnections between therapists, clients, and nature.
This weekend workshop offers you the opportunity to rewild your practice - to include the other-than-human in your work, both indoors and outdoors, in your mind/body, and in the connection you offer to those you work with. We will be exploring the beautiful, semi-wild environment at Felinganol Retreat Centre. We will gather as a group indoors in the round house, and in 2’s and small groups, outdoors in the surrounding woodlands and meadows.
This is an opportunity to experience, learn, and gain confidence in working therapeutically with nature as co-therapist.
It is also an ideal taster for the One Year Wild Therapy training, originally created by Nick Totton, author of 'Wild Therapy' and will be facilitated by Allison and Jayne in 2020/21.
Cost: £180 or £155 for the early bird booking before 3rd September 2019
