The Annandale approach is a humanistically and psychodynamically informed approach to counselling and psychotherapy. The aim of Emotion-Focused work is to help clients process their emotional experience from the present and the past. Initially the work can focus on current relational and other difficulties. These emotional experiences are processed using a variety of verbal and creative interventions. Healing occurs with the working through of past childhood difficulties in the presence of a respectful, warm and loving therapist who is an enlightened witness and provides corrective emotional responses within a safe and deeply sustaining therapeutic relationship.
In our first workshop, The Annandale Approach, we will introduce you to the Annandale approach to Emotion-Focused work. After this workshop, there are opportunities to further your training with us, completing 1 or 2-day workshops.
