Open Workshops

 

NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE*

*Please see individual workshop details as to whether it is offered online or in person.  This may change if guidelines change and participants will be notified in advance. 

 

These workshops look at a range of everyday issues that are often profoundly influenced by trauma experiences. The workshops will be facilitated by Lucy Jameson, Maria Green or Limor Regev. They are a good 'entry point' for those wishing to find out more about IoPT work and for those wishing to continue their personal exploration.

 

Concessions are available for these workshops for those in need; please contact the particular facilitator.

 

There are two categories of participation:

 

Working place - guarantees to do a personal exploratory process

 

Participant place - the option to do a personal exploration is not guaranteed, but may be possible if there is time. You will be able to participate in others' work if you want. If you do take up the option to do a process you will be required to pay the difference in price at the workshop.

The Courage to Be Me
1 Day ONLINE Workshop
Saturday 8th August 9.30am - 5.30pm

-- facilitated by Maria Green --

 

"Being with others AND also being autonomous - this is the art of living." 
                                                                            -- Franz Ruppert 

 

The hardest part of being human, is how to deal with the pain that results from our bonding and attachment injuries.  The pain of longing for a mother who is emotionally unavailable and disinterested, is endless.  Longing takes you away from your body and feelings.  Feeling the pain of rejection reconnects you to yourself.  The courage to be me comes through a process of taking my trauma seriously, coming to terms with the truth of my experiences and letting go illusions of love.

 

Time: 9.30am – 5.30pm
Price: £85 working place* / £20 participant
 * working place - a chance to work on your own process

Healthy Parents, Healthy Child

 

Saturday 5th September ONLINE

9.30am - 6.30pm (UK Time)

 

facilitated by Lucy Jameson

 

What does it mean, to be a healthy parent?

 

Unresolved early trauma (in utero, birth & infancy) forms the blueprint of what is possible for each of us, when we become parents ourselves.

 

If we are not wanted for who we are, not loved in a way that is healthy, and not protected from danger – both inside and outside of our family environment – we do not have within us the necessary resources to truly want, love and protect our own children.

 

When we begin to take our own trauma seriously, to acknowledge and start to feel our own split-off pain, then we automatically become clearer about who we are and what we want out of life. From this standpoint, we can start to see our children for who they are, and to value and cherish them, as we become able to value and cherish the younger parts of ourselves.

 

Children who have been carrying the burden of their parents' unresolved trauma - in the form of physical or mental 'illness', addiction or 'behavioural disorders' - can start to relax once their parents attend to themselves.

 

This workshop is open to parents, adoptive parents, foster parents, parents-to-be, and anyone who works with or cares for children or young people.

 

working place: £85 (a chance to work on your own personal issue)
participant place: £45 (an opportunity to observe and participate in others' work)*
*If there is time it may be possible to do your own personal exploration. If you do take up the option to do a process you will be required to pay the £40 difference in price on the day.

Healthy Eating

What does it mean?

 

Sunday 20th September ONLINE

9.30am - 6.30pm (UK Time)

 

using Identity-oriented Psychotrauma Therapy (IoPT)
together we will explore the relationship between trauma & food

 

Food is a basic necessity of life - if we do not eat, we cannot survive.
But how do we know what truly nourishes us? 


Our first and sole source of food at the beginning of our life is our mother. If she is traumatised, our experience of being fed can become toxic, and later in life we may unconsciously choose foods that poison our system and make us ill.
As a result, we may overeat, 'comfort eat' or even starve ourselves.

When we start, step-by-step, to come into contact with the truth - and the pain - of our own early experiences with food, we are then better able to develop eating habits that support our health and wellbeing.
