‘Who are you? Who am I? Why are we here? These questions seemed to disappear as we found acceptance of our being in the presence of a stranger acknowledging we were not alone. Client and therapist as two travellers, soul companions on our way home…’
Moss M. ‘A question of soul: The importance of being in the therapeutic relationship’ (In Print) Thresholds Journal 2020
Following on from a well-received presentation at the BACP Conference ‘Working with soul across the lifespan’ Leicester, 2019 this experiential workshop is offered to all who are interested in the therapeutic relationship and the emerging self or soul and its many different forms. We will explore the question of soul and the actualising tendency in the therapeutic relationship. It is also intended we may discover personal, professional and spiritual insights towards a deeper connection with our clients to help shape our practice.
