Next training dates tbc

A unique professional development weekend for qualified psychotherapists including arts and play therapists; supervisors, counsellors, coaches, spiritual leaders and anyone who holds a supervisory relationship with individuals and / or groups.

The aim of this weekend training is to enhance receptiveness and presence in the context of supervision, stimulate resilience, creativity and spontaneity whilst working within a clear supervisory frame. It will give you the tools to incorporate a greater awareness and understanding of embodiment and somatic resonance in your supervision practice.

There will be opportunities to attune to non-verbal body reactions and movements both as supervisee and as supervisor, facilitating resonance with supervision themes and questions at a somatic level.

The weekend will consider when and how it may be helpful to focus on movement and the body in supervision; it will also offer some creative reflective time and discussions on bodywork ethics, diversity, touch, and consent with different client groups.

With a theoretical underpinning located in the psychodynamic 7-eye supervision model by Hawkins & Shohet and within Action Methods, this weekend will also consider latest discoveries in social-neuroscience and implications for supervision.

This training will be of interest to qualified supervisors who would like to further develop their supervisory practice with a focus on movement and the body. It will also be of interest to psychotherapists, counsellors, arts and play therapists, coaches, spiritual leaders and anyone who holds a supervisory relationship with individuals and / or groups, including dance movement psychotherapists trained as supervisors seeking further reflection on embodiment in supervision*. Finally, this weekend will also be of interest to those with no supervision training who would like an introduction to the Creative Supervision training ran by the London Centre for Psychodrama.

It is organised by Heart of Movement and facilitated by Céline, MA, PGCert, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy informed practitioner, RDMP; with Saturday guest teacher Anna Chesner, MA, UKCP reg Psychotherapist, HCPC reg Dramatherapist, specialist in Psychodrama & Group Analysis.

Céline and Anna are published authors in the field of supervision and related creative practice and are registered supervisors.
