Written and facilitated by Catherine O’Riordan (MBACP / UKCP)
I am a developmentally based, relationally focused Integrative Psychotherapist and Supervisor based in Nottingham.
This ‘Your Inner Child’ workshop has a three-part approach that is developmentally based and relationally focused. The aim of the day is to explore experientially and conceptually how to nurture the ‘adult’ self whilst at the same time helping the client, as an adult, to process childhood traumatic memories using the ‘inner child’ metaphor, at the same time helping them to liberate their ‘eternal inner child’ or 'true self'.
This approach is deeply person centred as well as dynamic and seeks to facilitate the growth of the whole adult person whilst working with their various developmentally arrested inner child parts.
Drawing on my clinical experience and research as well as various humanisitc and psychodynamic literature, I share my clinical appraoch to inner child work and provide you with the opportunity to understand and integrate this model into your own approach.
In a confidential space you will explore:
How to nurture you adult self
Your own experiences of connecting with your ‘wounded inner child’
How to identify your 'eternal inner child' or 'true self'
How to work in this way with clients within the context of your specific work setting.
The workshop will involve large and small group work in brakout rooms, discussion, powerpoint presentation and some individual reflection time.
Prior to the workshop I will invite you to complete a short pre-workshop assignment around your wounded inner child which you will be invited to make use of on the workshop day.
Following the workshop resources like handouts and a bibliography will be emailed to participants.

I can also deliver this as a closed workshop to organisations.
