She is committed to write up the key learning from almost 30 years practice in Belfast and internationally.

Workshop Outline: This includes awareness of neuroaffective developmental resources and vulnerabilities, and methods to address them as information about the relational field of the client and the therapist or supervisor. The embodied presence of the therapist will be an important focus of this workshop. This includes awareness of the therapist's own survival responses to trauma, alongside the need to explore these responses as the key to facilitating growth in the client, therapist, and, relational field. Other key areas will include: Supporting Agency and Deconstructing. There will be room for clarifying questions and work in small groups. Relational embodiment, neuroaffective developmental and trauma theory form the theoretical underpinnings and practices of this workshop. Personality traits/adaptations will also be introduced.

Training Level: All Levels.


CPD certificates will be emailed to participants after attendance at the Workshop.


Workshop Limited to 60 places. IACP Student places are limited to 5.

Timeframe for statutory registration


Draft regulations to designate the professions of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and to establish a registration board will be ready for submission to the Houses of the Oireachtas for their approval during the present session, the Minister for Health, Simon Harris, has told the Dail.


The Minister recently concluded a public consultation on  his proposal to regulate counsellors generally under the Health and Social Care Professionals Act 2005.


On foot of the consultation process, He has decided to proceed with the designation of two distinct professions under the Act, that of counsellor and psychotherapist. Each will have its own register under one registration board. This decision has been communicated to the Health and Social Care Professionals Council, the relevant professional bodies and all the respondents to the public consultation process.


Subject to the approval of the Houses, the next step will be the appointment of the 13 members of the registration board, following the submission of suitable candidates for the Minister's consideration, by the Public Appointments Service. The aim is that the registration board will be in a position early in the New Year to begin the task of drafting the various bye-laws to allow it to establish its registers.
