This workshop aims to demystify the the transference and counter transference dynamics in the counselling work. It is aimed at those who are practising Counsellors or student Counsellors at Level 3 or Level 4. The focus will be around defining what it is, when it's likely to occur and how to recognise and work with it.
Throughout this workshop you will be challenged to reflect on your own feelings and reactions in the present and to make relevant connections with your own personal history.
