Working with the Male Psyche – Saturday 30th November 2019

A one day workshop. How do you think about the male psyche in your work? What does your countertransference tell you with a male client? How do you think about your countertransference to a man in your work? Do you feel differently working with a man to a woman? These are just some of the areas we will explore together. Working within a Transactional Analysis framework, with some psychoanalytical influence the workshop will be experiential. Together we will explore how the male psyche is experienced in one to one therapy or couples work.  The workshop will be delivered by John Paradise an Exeter based psychotherapist.  John will be drawing upon his years of experience of working almost exclusively with men, often in long term therapy. Places are limited to just eight, cost £60



“John’s workshop was extremely engaging and thought-provoking. It struck an excellent balance between theory and reflective exercises. This meant that I came away feeling I had learned something very valuable for my clinical practice within the NHS and at the same time felt energised and inspired. I would wholeheartedly recommend John’s workshops.”   Counselling Psychologist
I attended the training as I thought that the subject was different and I have not seen too many other training courses or days on this subject.  I absolutely loved the day .. the pace and the content were excellent and John is a knowledgeable and thoughtful trainer.  I loved the mix of theory, story and experiential learning… all in all well worth it and I will definitely reflect on this training when working with men in my practice.”  Counsellor

“I’d like to take this opportunity of thanking you again for such an informative day.  I can honestly say that my assumptive bucket has been drastically depleted though my compassion bucket has been completely refuelled.  The day has already made an impacted on my work insomuch thinking more about absent fathers with my clients”.  Counsellor
