Working with the Essential Self in Psychotherapy


“I think that the person is a bit like the TARDIS – pretty unimpressive on the outside, but practically infinite on the inside, with huge resources and immense untrodden ways. The person is not a poor limited worm on the face of the earth, but a being of great potential and magical connections.” John Rowan

The realisation of the full potential of ‘two person’ relational psychotherapy requires our holding of a ‘true and timeless Self, an Essential Self…not constructed in early life…’ (A.H. Almaas, 1988).


In this second workshop concerning the essential self, we will explore the healing and emancipatory orientation and possibilities of this perspective, within our work as psychotherapists. 


This will be with love and reverence for the depth & potential of the self for healing, fulfilment & profound realisation, and, its ultimate unity with the ground of being.


Integral to my approach is an appreciation of the systemic and transgenerational dimensions. In this workshop, I will include introductory teaching for the application within individual psychotherapy of important elements of family constellation work.


The workshop will include exercises of personal inquiry, group discussion, and exploration of work with clients. 


The workshop is for up to 8 participants. 


Each participant will be provided with a ring-bound book of my writing on this topic, and a CPD certificate of attendance.
