Claire Williamson | Creative Writing in the Therapeutic Encounter

This experiential Continuing Professional Development day is led by Claire Williamson whose collection Visiting the Minotaur, was published by Seren earlier this year. The day will focus on creative writing and its use within therapy and therapeutic settings. 

Therapy clients often find writing to be a useful resource, whether to express the ‘unsayable’ or to understand their feelings in a more tangible form. Through practice, this workshop will explore some helpful techniques and raise confidence in using the written and spoken word.

Some counsellors and psychotherapists use creative writing as part of their own reflective practice to understand transferential relationships, create boundaries between sessions and for their own personal and professional development.

Workshop Cost: £85. For further information and to book visit:
