    Exploring the Mother Wound

    14th September 2020
    Mothers seem to occupy a special place in the therapy room. There is seldom a client whose story is not impacted in some way by their relationship with their mother. For so many clients the ‘good enough mother’ was not a concept they experienced - often leading to a profound ‘mother wound’. In this workshop we look at the impact of mothers who are:

  • Narcissistic
  • Emotionally unavailable/Abandoning
  • Controlling or smothering
  • Abusive

    We will explore ways of working with clients that can both help to identify the mother wound and take steps towards its healing.

    Maximum 20 delegates
    Refreshments (not lunch) provided.
    COST:
    £75 - STUDENTS or EARLY BIRD IF BOOKED 2 MONTHS BEFORE
