This group (maximum 7 participants, meeting once every 2 months on a Tuesday in Hendon, North London 10:15 to 16:45) originally organised by Eamonn Marshall, has been running since 2014, meeting 6 times per year, in varying configurations and with various members. There is obviously an established group dynamic and cohesion, and new participants would have to work with how they fit into that to develop a new shape and group. From autumn 2018 there is more place available in this group, which is open to experienced therapists only from across the modalities. All of the current participants work also as supervisors, tutors or teachers alongside their private practice and share a perspective that draws from both humanistic and psychoanalytic traditions. Please enquire soon if you are interested in joining.
This group is open to experienced therapists from across the modalities who have been working for at least 12 years. It currently has 6 members; the maximum group size is 7 participants, so from autumn 2018 there is one more place available in this group. Currently we have two men and four women, so potential male participants are especially welcome.
Format and ways of working
All of the current participants also work as supervisors, tutors or teachers alongside their private practice and share a perspective that draws from both humanistic and psychoanalytic traditions. The group has an integrative cross- and multi-modality framework and has developed a supervision style that emphasises reflections on the manifestations of transference and countertransference via enactments.
If you are an experienced practitioner and have a curiosity and interest in relational ways of working as well as psychotherapy integration, stretching beyond the therapeutic approach you originally trained in, then this may be a good group for your further development.
As with all supervisory/learning work, there is an overlap between personal and professional development, and Michael and the group have been working to find a good balance between the two. The group has evolved a culture of sharing our work in an experiential way, through role play and two-chair work alongside traditional presentation and discussion. You would need to be comfortable in sharing yourself in such a group supervision format with an emphasis on experiential learning, which naturally opens up the opportunity to discuss therapeutic perspectives, theory and practice across the modalities.
Several participants, as well as Michael, have an interest in embodied ways of working and are bringing that to the group.
Times: meeting bi-monthly on Tuesdays 10:15 to 16:45.
With 6 participants the fee per day is £110, plus £16 per person for the room we are renting.
With 7 participants the fee per day is £100, plus £15 per person for the room we are renting.
