The sweet spot workshop meets at the blending points of the person-centred relationship, relational depth theory and advances in psychodynamic theory, all underpinned by cutting edge neuroscience to bring together the ideal therapeutic blend.

Workshop Details

Psychodynamic theory and person-centred ways of being are often seen as being polarised and impossible to blend. Images of the blank screen of the therapist, the couch and free association put many off and for others it’s the complex theory with undigestible lingo that makes psychodynamic feel worlds apart from the beingness of person-centred.

Simply put, person-centred therapy works from the outside in, infusing the environment with the core conditions facilitating a space for clients to unfold and learn about all of who they are in each changing moment, whereas psychodynamic traditionally has worked from the inside out, supporting understanding of the past and relationships whilst bringing the unconscious into consciousness. The sweet spot workshop meets at the blending points of the person-centred relationship, relational depth theory and advances in psychodynamic theory, all underpinned by cutting edge neuroscience to bring together the ideal therapeutic blend.
