New research into Understanding what it is and how to treat it. Presented by Dr Emma Haynes.

This two day workshop is aimed at anyone who works with women through pregnancy and the post-natal period and aims to de-bunk some of the myths surrounding motherhood and the types of mental illness that occur at this time.
Providing up-to-date research to facilitate understanding of what it is, why it might occur, the prevalence and also the costs to families, society and the economy, this workshop will also look at barriers to treatment, ethical issues surrounding treatment and how to provide a useful and acceptable treatment to women that does not involve medication necessarily.

Sex is something that many therapists feel uncomfortable discussing in the therapy room. This is despite it being a key area of most clients’ lives which is often intrinsically linked to mental health problems and which may – if worked with – open up a path to deeper understanding and creative ways of engaging with our struggles.

In this one day workshop we will consider how our own attitudes around sex and sexuality – and talking about sex – may impact upon our client work. We will look at the ways in which sex is understood in wider culture – and within psychology, psychotherapy and psychiatry – questioning the common approach of delineating ‘normal functional’ sex from ‘abnormal, dysfunctional’ sex and taking a goal-focused approach to sex and sexual difficulties.

Nurturing, creative self development CPD retreat day. We will explore the story of Sealskin Soulskin and the theme of Homing: Returning to Oneself.

We can all loose our energy and ignore our soul's voice in the busyness of everyday life, and our resources and time can be stolen. This is an opportunity to take respite with other women to pay attention to what we need more of or less of in our life.

With the support of creative art, movement, ritual and the group, we will reconnect with our-self to discover new insights and possibilities.
