Relational Depth in Counselling with Mick Cooper

Relational Depth in Counselling with Mick Cooper

from 95.00

What does it mean to connect to others in an in-depth way?, What are the effects of relating deeply to clients in therapy, and how can such a such an encounter be facilitated?

This workshop gives participants the opportunity to explore experiences of relational depth, and how it feels to meet others at this level of intensity and intimacy: both in therapeutic practice and everyday life. Through discussion, practical exercises and theory input, this workshop will help participants develop a more profound understanding of deep encounters, and how these may enrich their therapeutic work.
