“As therapists one of our challenges is to be present in a way that creates a relational field that will allow for and have the capacity to tolerate the emergence of erotic energy.” (L O’Shea, BGJ 2003.)
Both Relational Psychotherapy and Gestalt Therapy emphasise the need to be authentic and whole in our approach to the world as therapists and human beings.
Historically psychotherapy training has often excluded sexuality from the training syllabus and minimised its presence in the therapeutic setting for fear of its ethical and potentially abusive misuse. Such repression is exacted at a steep price; the loss of relational aliveness and contactful energy, when ‘all’ that is needed is courage, honesty, good quality training and some very clearly negotiated and held ethical boundaries.
In this workshop we will create a safe environment in which we can explore our whole selves including our relationally alive sexual selves; our boundaried creative self and our whole authentic being.
Through relational group process, theory, practice and gentle movement we will seek to demystify and normalise sex, to empower ourselves with our existential choice. We will seek to reduce intra-, and inter-, personal tension. Through these processes we aim to develop an understanding of our whole naturally responsive and authentic self.
Tim Carrette is an experienced UKCP registered Gestalt Therapist, Supervisor and Trainer at SCPTI. He specialises in both Sexuality and Spirituality in the therapeutic setting, and has taught these workshops throughout the UK and Europe.
