The goal of Emotion-Focused work is to facilitate the emotional well-being of our clients. This involves helping clients have their emotional experience and integrating their experience and understandings within themselves. Emotional experiences can be classified into different types so that practitioners can then use appropriate interventions for working with the feelings, cognitions and behaviours that are the essence of these experiences. One of the primary aims in Emotion-Focused counselling is to help clients process their emotional experiences. This involves having the feelings – experiencing and expressing them, finding the adaptive action, symbolising the experience, and finally reflection and meaning-making. 

In this workshop, we will show you how to help your clients move from talking about difficult emotional experiences to experiencing the associated feelings. We will show you how to use the experience triangle to assess emotions before exploring how to facilitate clients having their feelings. Verbal and creative interventions will be demonstrated and practised. The question of regulating feelings versus experiencing them will be discussed and explored.
