I also deliver this as a closed workshop to training groups, colleges, and organisations.

In a secure and confidential group space you will explore:

  • Facilitating self-actualisation through this three-pronged approach

  • How to nurture your adult self

  • How to identify your eternal inner child and liberate it

  • How to identify and connect compassionately with your wounded inner child or children

  • How to navigate shame processes

  • How to apply this approach in your clinical setting

My approach crafting this workshop: 

I am a developmentally based, relationally focused Integrative Psychotherapist and Supervisor. I am just completing my Group Facilitation Certificate with the Gestalt Centre London.

The aim of this 2-workshop is to help you to explore experientially and conceptually how to realize your authentic or true self. It focuses on nurturing your most adult self whilst at the same time connecting compassionately with your wounded inner child or children. The third element in this approach is to explore and liberate your eternal inner child. Together this three pronged approach creates a simple but powerful approach to self-actualisation through integration; where the autonomy and uniqueness of the whole person is celebrated.

As well as being underpinned by Humanistic principles I draw on psychodynamic theory, child development and neuroscience. The aim of this integrative approach is to facilitate the growth and integration of the whole adult person whilst working with developmentally arrested parts and states.


The 2-day workshop is experiential and encourages self-disclosure and sharing from both myself and you as participants. I seek to support the individual and the group process. From experience I believe this way of learning creates an ideal environment for understanding and integrating this model into your life and clinical work.

Prior to the first workshop day I will invite you to complete a short pre-workshop reflection around connecting with your wounded inner child(ren) and this will help prepare you psychologically for the actual 2-day workshop / group experience.

Resources like handouts and a bibliography will be emailed to participants after the workshop.

I will also be running this workshop on September, Sunday 11th and 18th, 2022
