Bárbara Godoy, Founder-Director

You are warmly welcomed to our Professional (and Personal) Development Courses!

Our Mission is to support the therapeutic endeavour in the community, not just in terms of its practice but also generating an environment for continuing professional development and research in a way that facilitates self-enquiry and creativity.

Ultimately, we aim to come together and share insights regarding the meaning of being human and through this promote a deeper understanding of “how to live well”.

Advanced Supervision Group
with Dr Manu Bazzano

Manu

Supervision is not ‘management’ but open exploration. It is a soulful endeavour. At the heart of group supervision is the crucial notion of affect, the modification or variation produced in a body/mind by the interaction with other bodies/minds.

Jun 26 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

26 June – Embodied Mind – Prof Robert Romanyshyn

Embodied-Mind undercuts the dualism of a subjective mind and objective matter/body. We see, as Merleau-Ponty notes, because we are seeable. An aesthetic bond and erotic field of desire exists between the sensual flesh and the sensuous world.

This phenomenological self enquiry is a full immersion into existential theory and depth psychology through an innovative combination of lectures and exercises specially designed to “bring to life” the following key topics:

SpinelliThese Master Workshops provide the opportunity to ‘look again’ at our practise and re-view assumptions and expectations regarding being a therapist.

“Group supervision sessions seek to provide participants with a safe, yet challenging, space, to consider and address the issues that arise for them when discussing their own, or another participant’s, experience of being a therapist. They provide the opportunity to ‘look again’ at their practise and re-view their assumptions and expectations regarding being a therapist and doing therapy. Group supervision can be a valuable and enriching experience for all participants since even though the focus may be on a particular supervisee’s account, it is likely that all participants will discover broader issues and concerns that resonate with their own encounters with clients.” Prof. Ernesto Spinelli

ADVANCED PHENOMENOLOGICAL SUPERVISION GROUP with Prof Robert Romanyshyn
Jun 26 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Our supervision groups draw upon the ways in which existential-phenomenology and depth psychology supplement each other and deepen our practice of psychotherapy.

Description:
These six Master Workshops explore some of the basic questions about being a psychotherapist and the practice of psychotherapy. Before psychotherapy is a profession it is a vocation and one of the primary issues for a psychotherapist is to deepen on a continuous basis one’s understanding of what has called one into this life of being a wounded healer. Beyond the necessary skills one has to learn and master, a psychotherapist has to cultivate the difficult art of learning how to listen in such a way that opens a dialogue not only between patient and therapist, but also with the other in oneself.
In this regard, group supervision is a fundamental part of a therapist’s continuing education in the art of dialogue. A group setting is an opportunity to pause and step back to hear how colleagues practice this difficult art of listening with the third ear. In addition, a group setting fosters a sense of community for this art, whose roots tap into the sense of the sacred character of encounter and the ways in which silence plays a key role in dialogue.

Dates and Time: Saturdays from 2pm to 5pm (UK time)

13 November – Selves-in-relation— Prof Ernesto Spinelli

Western assumptions regarding self tend to isolate each self such that it appears to us and can be defined as separate and distinct to other selves. Existential phenomenology proposes a view of self that is always and inevitably in relation. This interplay between “I” and “not-I” provides a very different view and understanding of self.

This phenomenological self enquiry is a full immersion into existential theory and depth psychology through an innovative combination of lectures and exercises specially designed to “bring to life” the following key topics:

ADVANCED EXISTENTIAL SUPERVISION GROUP with Prof Ernesto Spinelli
Nov 13 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

SpinelliThese Master Workshops provide the opportunity to ‘look again’ at our practise and re-view assumptions and expectations regarding being a therapist.

“Group supervision sessions seek to provide participants with a safe, yet challenging, space, to consider and address the issues that arise for them when discussing their own, or another participant’s, experience of being a therapist. They provide the opportunity to ‘look again’ at their practise and re-view their assumptions and expectations regarding being a therapist and doing therapy. Group supervision can be a valuable and enriching experience for all participants since even though the focus may be on a particular supervisee’s account, it is likely that all participants will discover broader issues and concerns that resonate with their own encounters with clients.” Prof. Ernesto Spinelli

ADVANCED PHENOMENOLOGICAL SUPERVISION with Prof Robert Romanyshyn
Nov 13 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Our supervision groups draw upon the ways in which existential-phenomenology and depth psychology supplement each other and deepen our practice of psychotherapy.

Description:
These six Master Workshops explore some of the basic questions about being a psychotherapist and the practice of psychotherapy. Before psychotherapy is a profession it is a vocation and one of the primary issues for a psychotherapist is to deepen on a continuous basis one’s understanding of what has called one into this life of being a wounded healer. Beyond the necessary skills one has to learn and master, a psychotherapist has to cultivate the difficult art of learning how to listen in such a way that opens a dialogue not only between patient and therapist, but also with the other in oneself.
In this regard, group supervision is a fundamental part of a therapist’s continuing education in the art of dialogue. A group setting is an opportunity to pause and step back to hear how colleagues practice this difficult art of listening with the third ear. In addition, a group setting fosters a sense of community for this art, whose roots tap into the sense of the sacred character of encounter and the ways in which silence plays a key role in dialogue.

Dates and Time: Saturdays from 2pm to 5pm (UK time)

11 December – Time: Memory and Imagination – Prof Robert Romanyshyn

Clock time is a measure of the linear sense of time. Lived time, as phenomenology describes it, is a vertical spiral in which every present moment carries a creative capacity to remember the past in light of imagining a future and vice versa. This capacity is the foundation of human freedom with implications for psychotherapy.

ADVANCED SUPERVISION GROUP with Dr Manu Bazzano
Jan 15 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Manu“Supervision is not ‘management’ but open exploration. It is a soulful endeavour. At the heart of group supervision is the crucial notion of affect, the modification or variation produced in a body/mind by the interaction with other bodies/minds. Affects carry important information, and it is through being affected, that therapists and supervisors can begin to unfasten the artificial separateness of client-therapist-supervisor. That’s when the client’s experience may be more genuinely accessed. Through experiential processing of clinical material and discussion, we will explore some innovative ideas from affect theory and beyond that may enliven and enrich participants’ practice. For an introduction, please refer to this free article published in Threshold, a BACP magazine: click here. My way of working is suitable for therapists of all orientations” Dr Manu Bazzano.

Dr Manu Bazzano is an author, psychotherapist/supervisor in private practice and an internationally recognised lecturer and facilitator. His background is philosophy and rock music. He studied Eastern contemplative practices since 1980 and in 2004 was ordained in the Soto and Rinzai tradition of Zen Buddhism. Among his books: Re-Visioning Existential Therapy: (Routledge,2020) Nietzsche and Psychotherapy (Routledge, 2019); Re-visioning Person-centred Therapy (2018); Zen and Therapy: Heretical Perspectives (2017) Therapy and the Counter-tradition (2016); After Mindfulness (2014); Spectre of the Stranger: towards a Phenomenology of Hospitality (Sussex, 2012); Buddha is Dead (Sussex, 2006).
