Workshop 1: The Hidden Potential of Shame for Rupture and Repair

~ theory, practice, movement and meeting

New and compassionate perspectives on shame have been forged in recent times. This session introduces a somatic-relational approach to support awareness of unspoken dynamics. We will begin to explore the hidden role of shame in disconnection, and in the isolation of trauma; and paradoxically, how shame also points us to the emergence of our legitimate yearnings for connection, creativity, intimacy and belonging.

Sue Glasser (UKAHPP) is a group facilitator and organisation consultant, qualified in Applied Psychotherapy and Work Mediation. She is mentored by Robert Lee PhD, a key Relational Gestalt Theorist as regards relationship functionality and Neurobiology. Sue’s first love and career is dance and choreography, which inspire her coaching and training programme Movement at Work. Projects in South Africa, where Sue grew up, keep her in touch with the Rainbow Nation and our collective, ongoing recovery from Apartheid.


Workshop 2: Imagery and Visioning in Therapy and Counselling

~ ourselves, our clients, our future

This workshop is a brief introduction to the power of imagery, and to a selection of ways to use imagery in therapy and counselling, both within the therapy session, and as part of a toolkit for clients to take home and build into their lives. There will be an opportunity for workshop participants to vision their possible futures–both a positive one and a negative one–and decide which to choose and how to make it happen.

Dr. Dina Glouberman (AHPB) is a writer, therapist, international trainer, coach and consultant, and the author of the classic books: Life Choices, Life Changes; The Joy of Burnout; and You are what You Imagine. She is a pioneer in Image work, an interactive technology of the imagination directed towards personal change, and a specialist in burnout and in creating temporary communities. She co-founded, in 1979, and co-directs the ground breaking Skyros holidays in Greece and worldwide, which put community-oriented holistic holidays on the map.
