4 BLOCKS OF 2-DAY GROUPS: Saturdays and Sundays

Dec 7 - 8, 2019

Feb 1-2, 2020

March 21-22, 2020

May 9-10, 2020

A series of four x 2-day family-of-origin group sessions over a 6-month period. A maximum of 4-5 participants in each confidential closed group. Participants prepare and bring to the sessions a series of family-of-origin explorations, which are presented to the group within a safe psychotherapeutic dialogical space. Reflective group processes support each participant in moving towards an increased awareness, understanding, sensitivity and attunement to their personal and professional self – in their ‘way of being’ in clinical practice.

Please Note: Introductory Course (differing versions) is a prerequisite


For therapists, clinicians and counsellors who seek an increased integration of their personal & professional self, by which to underpin their ‘way of being’ in clinical practice.

The dialogical process in the closed group format requires that each participant commits to attending all four sessions over a 6-month period.


  • To increase awareness of multigenerational family-of-origin factors as influencing a sense of self
