We have three dates with Mick Cooper in Brighton coming up, 3rd, 4th and 5th May:
Existential Contributions to Counselling and Psychotherapy
This day workshop offers counsellors and psychotherapists an opportunity to develop their understanding of existential philosophy and therapeutic practice, and to look at ways in which it may help them to enhance their own therapeutic work. The workshop will involve a combination of theoretical input, discussion and exercises; and will focus on three key aspects of existential thinking and practice: freedom and choice, coming to terms with the limitations of existence, and the need for meaning.
3rd May 2013 - 10:00 - 17:00 - £70

Working at Relational Depth
Building on an existential, humanistic and person-centred approach to therapeutic practice, this workshop will explore what it means to engage with clients at a level of emotional and relational depth. Through small group exercises, pairs-work, discussion and theory and research input, the workshop will help participants develop a deeper understanding of such encounters, their role in therapy, and the ways in which therapists can develop their capacity to relate deeply with their clients. The workshop builds on Dave Mearns and Cooper’s ‘Working at Relational Depth in Counselling and Psychotherapy,’ as well as cutting edge material from the recently published edited text: Relational Depth: New Perspectives and Developments’

This workshop will introduce, and look at the practical implications of, a ‘pluralistic’ approach to counselling and psychotherapy, which Mick has been developing with Professor John McLeod of the University of Abertay. The pluralistic approach is deeply rooted in person-centred and relational practices and values, holding that each client is unique, and therefore may need very different things from therapy. On this basis, it creates a framework in which practitioners can integrate a wide variety of methods into their practice. A key element of a pluralistic approach is metacommunication: talking to clients about what they want from therapy, and how they might most effectively be helped to get there. The workshop will include a mixture of theory input, skills practice, case examples and discussion, and will be based around Cooper and McLeod’s Pluralistic Counselling and Psychotherapy as well as more recent research and developments.

About Esse Bene
We are trying to do things a bit differently and operate outside of the money oriented model. We are trying to offer these days at a significant discount to other providers as we are only looking to cover the costs of the day plus a share of the administration costs of the company. This means these prices are 'cost price' and hopefully allow more people access to Mick. We have also limited the number of places to 25, as often the bigger names are a face in the crowd.
There is lots more info about us on our website and a contact-us button if you would like to get in touch.
