Working Therapeutically with Small Objects

Tuesday 13th November 2007. 6.15pm - 9.15pm


Cost £30.00(inc VAT) –  including refreshments

This workshop offers experience of working therapeutically with small objects such as buttons stones and shells.  We will also explore how this method may be incorporated into counselling practice, or used by workers in allied services.  It may also be of interest to participants who wish to use this method for themselves, to gain insight into and maybe resolution of their own issues.


The process of symbolising thoughts, feelings and experiences into external, concrete images is in itself healing and enables us to become more clearly aware of unconscious processes or habitual patterns of behaving. 


By using symbolic objects which can be moved around in space and time we add a further dimension to this process helping us to imaginatively try out different choices, perspectives and outcomes, so this method is particularly useful for working with decisions, choices about future directions and experiences of chaos and stuckness. 


Objects will be provided, and you will be encouraged to use the contents of handbags and pockets. Some work will be done sitting on the floor so please wear comfortable clothes. Tables and chairs are also available.
