Russian-Doll-660x360 - Copy.jpg

Zoom workshop. Saturday 22nd and Saturday 29th April 2023; 10am - 4pm. The workshop is run over consecutive Saturday's to give participants time to process and embed the learning. Cost: £180. Maximum of 14 participants. This course has been written for counsellors, psychotherapists and allied mental health professionals. It is also relevant to pastoral workers who want to access a psychological model of healing and growth that harnesses the spirituality of the person they are supporting. 

You will be given an attendance certificate for 12 hours. The programme is written and facilitated by me Catherine O’Riordan.


Day 1 presents the outline of my inner child model. Day 2 participants are given opportunity to further embed this approach to working integratively both within themselves and as professionals; this may feel a bit like supervision but with the focus on you.


Because this 2-day workshop is facilitated as a group experiential process please ensure you have the emotional space and support you need.

My approach crafting this workshop: 

I am a developmentally based, relationally focused Integrative Psychotherapist, Supervisor, and Group Facilitator

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 deconstructing child-based notions of what it means to be an adult; nurturing your most adult self whilst at the same time connecting compassionately with your wounded inner child or children. The final element in this approach is to explore and liberate your eternal inner child, the creative and spiritual part of you. 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.

In a secure and confidential group space you will explore:

  • Facilitating your self-actualisation

  • How to debunk child-based views of being 'adult' 

  • 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
