This 8 module training combines seminar style teaching, demonstrations of working with babies and families, group discussion and experiential exercises. It is intended for practitioners already working with babies and their families, who wish to deepen their understanding of how babies and infants communicate their prenatal and birth experience and to work therapeutically with early trauma. It is also relevant to therapists who wish to understand the impact of the pre and perinatal period in the lives of older children, adolescents and adults. Previous participants have included midwives, doulas, craniosacral therapists, osteopaths, paediatricians, paediatric nurses, lactation consultants, massage therapists, body psychotherapists, psychologists and ante-natal yoga teachers.
This residential course consists of 4 modules, each 4 days long. It provides a safe and caring container to enable participants to engage with the formative templates of how we embody. These are the templates of sperm, egg, conception and implantation. Each of these templates imprints us with archetypal themes, which shape us to become who we are. The course provides participants with the opportunity for theoretical learning, experiential exploration and personal healing.
These 2 day workshops are limited to 6 participants. They are largely experiential and work with embodied process to explore how our prenatal and birth experiences may be unconsciously influencing us in our adult lives. Individual sessions are supported by the empathic holding of the group.
A four day residential course, explores how our first relationship, which is mediated prenatally by the umbilical cord influences all subsequent relationships. The course is largely experiential, supporting participants to explore how their experience of what came through the umbilical cord prenatally and at birth set up survival strategies that still operate unconsciously in later life. This is especially evident in our relationship with food, money and intimacy. With an emphasis on safety and containment participants are supported to research their own unique experience through regressive exercises and find new possibilities alongside the survival strategies they learnt prenatally. The experiential work is supported by some theoretical teaching.
A four day residential course, exploring the impact prenatal and birth experience at the level of the soul. The course is largely experiential, supporting participants to explore how their prenatal and birth experience undermined their capacity to embody all they could be. With an emphasis on safety and containment participants are supported to research their own unique experience through regressive exercises and to reclaim what was lost to them. The experiential work is supported by some theoretical input drawing from pre- and perinatal psychology and the understanding of soul loss in shamanic cultures.
We offer online workshops, and an on-going programme of one day Practitioner CPD workshops in Bristol covering a diversity of subjects. The workshops combine practical and theoretical input to support practitioner confidence in clinical practice. Some of these workshops are only open to qualified Craniosacral Therapists and Cranial Osteopaths. Others are open to practitioners from other disciplines as well.
