Working with the Body in Counselling & Psychotherapy

Go Back


This master class offers an opportunity for clinical inquiry into how to work safely and effectively with the body in counselling and psychotherapy. This will be especially relevant to counselors/psychotherapists with no formal training in a body-oriented approach or those who would like to deepen their clinical practice.

There is growing recognition especially through advances in interpersonal neurobiology, attachment and trauma research that many of the issues that clients bring into therapy are somatically embedded. As therapists we therefore need to be able to engage with the non-verbal and embodied aspects of the client’s experience and help raise somatic awareness within the client.

The day will have a practical focus exploring clinical dilemmas and situations especially in areas such as complex trauma and somatization disorders. There will also be opportunities for participants to bring their own clinical material and challenges.
