Are you a therapist or counsellor who wants to work with couples but doesn’t know where to start? Have you felt powerless as the couple you are working with argues in front of you and you are unsure of what to do?
Working with couples is different, challenging and rewarding. As a therapist, it’s likely that you have learned a model aimed at working with individuals. When it comes to couples (having two people in the room) your model may not help you very much.
If you want to be an effective, potent couples therapist you will need specific training on how to work with couples. Why not sign up to have that training with one of the most highly trained couples therapists in the North West?
Ian Tomlinson is a UKCP registered psychotherapist, an Advanced Imago Clinician and workshop presenter. He has trained extensively with some of the most respected experts in couples therapy in the world, including Dr Sophie Slade, Dr Pat Love and Maya Kollman.
Ian has been working with couples for many years and has helped many, many couples in that time.
What you will learn:
Ian’s aim is to give you an insight into the world of working with couples and give you practical techniques that you can apply in the therapy room.
Ian will take theory from Imago Relationship Therapy, Transactional Analysis and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy to help you understand what makes a couple tick and how to help them into a better place.
It’s important to understand that this course will not be in-depth theory, but more focused on getting you started as a couples therapist.
