Ian Wallace Training and Coaching Associate Counselling and Training in Wakefield

Training for Counsellors/Psychotherapists. Ian Picture

Systemic connections and interventions August 202 via Zoom

About this course
Who is it for?
• Counsellors who are currently working and want to reflect on their practice and deepen their learning.
• Qualified counsellors who are considering progressing to couples counselling; counsellors who recognise that every client brings an unseen family into the room with them.
• Counsellors who access robust supervision from a suitably qualified Supervisor.

This course will suit qualified counsellors who are looking to extend their knowledge and experience of working in the interesting, demanding and fascinating world of interlocking systems and how these interplay in relationships and general life.



Whats it about

Systemic work is a way of thinking, enquiring and understanding which is specific to your client and simultaneously very widely based.
Systemic theory is complex and yet simple at heart. We all develop within many ‘systems’ – family, school, peer group, friends, lovers, and our lives are an interplay of them all – both good and bad experiences. If you ever have had a client say that their spouse speaks to them ‘as if they are still at work’, then your client is identifying a specific system input which likely has a much broader and deeper meaning.



What will this course give me?

It will give you practical and theoretical aspects of working within the system dynamic and build on your current counselling knowledge in general.
You will develop the skills and tools needed to offer clients insight into why their interactions with other people can be problematic. Tools to help them to engage with and understand, and then interact differently, in the systems they connect to.
Your new skills will give you the techniques to help them to understand their responsibilities, role and requirements in their systems and how to make positive changes in their relationships that create lasting change in how they relate to and feel about each other.
Once you have completed the training you will be suitably qualified to work with the family systems inherent in every client and the wider dynamic influences.

For clarity: this is a course around family systems, not a qualification in family therapy
