The next event

10 March - Using Russian Dolls in Therapy

What is the seminar about?

There are so many ways of using Russian dolls in therapy. They have different layers, a bit like us because we are made up of the same person at different ages. All of life’s experiences so far have made us the person we are today. This experiential seminar will focus on exploring positive resources held in the layers of the self, using the Child ego state to help find wise and creative ways to manage stuck places or difficulties.
The session will cover:
  • Theory behind using Russian dolls
  • Introducing Russian dolls to your work
  • Layers of Life
  • Relating in the Workplace

This seminar is delivered by Bev Gibbons - a Transactional Analysis psychotherapist, supervisor and trainer, and also a qualified integrative counsellor. She works in private practice, runs a small training centre and is a council member and safeguarding committee chair for the UK Association of TA. Bev is passionate about TA and about working creatively and relationally with both clinical and non-clinical practitioners.

Attendees will be invited to consider how to apply the learning to their own professional setting as counsellor, psychotherapist, coach, professional or mental health worker.
