2-Day Inner Child Workshop

Russian-Doll-660x360 - Copy.jpg

Saturday, February 10th and Saturday 17th 2024.  

Price £170 for two days.

 

This 2-day inner child zoom workshop has been written for counsellors and psychotherapists but may also be found relevant for practitioners in allied fields of work. 

 

This developmentally based, relationally focused integrative approach is distinctive in its constellation in the way it focuses equally on growing the adult, liberating the eternal inner child, and learning to recognise and relate lovingly to the wounded inner child or children. This three-pronged approach is an effective way of facilitating both recovery and growth whilst celebrating and empowering the unique here and now person/adult in a way that feels paced and supportive.

 

The next zoom inner child workshop dates are both on a Saturday, February 10th and 17th, 2024; the two days make the one workshop. The days start at 9am and finish at 2.15pm. There is also an option to join a six week 2 hour supervision/process group starting 24th February 2024. The price is £240 for the six sessions.

 

The workshops are consecutive Saturday's. The first day introduces the three-part inner child model -  how to grow the adult; liberate the eternal inner child and recognise, connect, and nurture the various wounded inner child parts. The second day enables participants to explore the model in relation to themselves and the people they support and work with. The weeklong gap provides opportunity for personal reflective work before we reconvene for day two. The workshop is experiential therefore I do not record the sessions as this may inhibit the free flowing of sharing. I suggest people consider the space from which they are zooming, both their literal physical space but also your emotional space and your needs in and around engaging in this 2-day workshop.

Each Saturday is facilitated in three sections. I do not use PowerPoint or breakout rooms and this helps create a sense of working together as a group online. You will receive handouts and a bibliography to accompany the workshop and a certificate of attendance for 10.5 hours.

My approach crafting this workshop: 


I am a  humanistic developmentally based, relationally focused integrative psychotherapist, supervisor, and gestalt group facilitator

The aim of this 2-day inner child zoom workshop is to help you explore experientially and conceptually how to realize your authentic or true self and relate this to your client work.

 

The model involves recognising and where relevant deconstructing child-based notions of what it means to be an adult and at the same time learning what it means and how to become more adult. It involves learning to develop and utilise inner and outer resources to actively create your most adult self within the givens of your social and cultural context.

 

At the same time we learn how as an adult we can identify and learn to connect compassionately with our wounded inner child or children. Developing this inner  relationship is a life-long process.

 

The final element (but not sequentially as all parts are worked with simultaneously) in this approach is to explore and liberate your eternal inner child, the creative, temperamentally authentic, and 'spiritual' part of you. This aspect of yourself can be thought of as capturing your essential nature.

 

Together this three-pronged lens creates a simple, trauma informed, powerful approach to self-actualisation through integration, where the autonomy and uniqueness of the whole person is worked with and celebrated.


As well as being underpinned by humanistic principles I draw on object relations 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. This facilitates recovery and growth.

 

The 2-day workshop is experiential and encourages self-disclosure and sharing from both me and you as participants. Although therapeutic the workshop is not intended to be personal therapy. I seek to support  both the individual and the group process in a way that fosters resilience. This way of learning creates an ideal environment for understanding and integrating this inner child model into your life and clinical work.
