“We will work from ’the body’ backwards to how we think; inverting our usual habit of putting concepts first. The day will centre around the practice of Focusing and the philosophy of Eugene Gendlin to develop an embodied-relational mode of therapy.” Dr Greg Madison
Dr. Greg Madison, AFBPsS, UKCP, EAP, WCPC, BPS CPsychol, HCPC, EuroPsy –
Dr. Greg Madison is a Chartered Psychologist (BPS) and Registered existential Psychotherapist (UKCP). Greg’s academic studies in psychology began in 1979. He has been practicing as a psychotherapist and Focusing trainer for over twenty-five years. He is also a registered coaching psychologist, accredited mediator, senior lecturer, supervisor, author and associate fellow of the British Psychological Society.
Over the years Greg has been exposed to many psychological theories and most of the various models of psychotherapy. These, sometimes competing theories and models, suggest that there is still much that we can learn about psychology, and about life. Greg believes that it is crucial that we remain as open as possible to the complexity of human existence. Each person teaches us a lot about the everyday dilemmas we all encounter throughout life.
In his work, Dr. Madison emphasises what a person concretely experiences and how each of us makes unique sense of how we live. This requires taking account of our cognitive, behavioral, emotional, and relational spheres of being – balancing the intellect and emotions.
