Echoism: The silenced response to narcissism
Donna Savery
15 June 2018

On Friday 15th June 2018 Donna Savery will run a workshop based around her forthcoming book Echoism: The Silenced Response to Narcissism.  This is based on the myth of Echo and Narcissus, and addresses the fact that the character of Echo is virtually absent from the literature.  This has a cruel resonance with the content of the myth, in which Echo is cursed by the goddess Hera to silence or to simply repeat what has been said to her.  Donna is a frequent visitor to Mindsite, and in previous workshops she has focussed on other aspects of her interest in myth, narcissism and theatre.  The workshop will be of interest to counsellors and therapists of all orientations and has wide application to work with both individuals and couples.  For further information click here.

Metaphor in counselling and psychotherapy
Dr Jonathan Lloyd
07 Dec 2018

Picture of Jonathan

On Friday 1st December 2017, we will repeat our popular workshop on metaphor in counselling and psychotherapy.  Metaphor in counselling and psychotherapy has a unique power. According to Rubin Battino (2002) metaphors provides a cluster or gestalt of associations; reduce resistance; facilitate thinking; are more compelling than structured language; and aid assimilation. They provide an essential link between conscious and subconscious and can be extremely powerful tools in working safely with difficult issues like trauma, shame and anger.  This one day workshop will investigate the use of metaphor and help delegates to use it more consciously and effectively in their practice. The venue is the Friends Meeting House in Stockport.  For further information click here.
