The workshop will be held in Weston-super-Mare on Saturday 30th March 2019. Tickets are £70 for the day, £45 for students.To book your place please email Claire at

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 an encounter be facilitated? This workshop will give participants an opportunity to explore their experiences of relational depth and how it feels to meet others at this level of intensity and intimacy: in both their therapeutic practice and everyday life. Through small group exercises, pairs-work, discussion and theory input, the workshop will help participants develop a deeper understanding of such encounters and also how they come to deepen their levels of relating in their therapeutic work.

Learning Outcomes:

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

Understand the nature of relational depth

Articulate their own experiences of in-depth relating

Understand the latest research findings on the nature, impact and prevalence of relational depth in therapy

Recognise means of deepening levels of relating with clients

Recognise their own chronic strategies of disconnection and other barriers to relational depth

This workshop is appropriate for training and practising counsellors, psychotherapists, counselling psychologists and other mental health professionals.
