Feedback from previous attendees

"I just attended the first seminar with Ian (Boundaries). What a nice man, and clearly expert knowledge and very clear way of explaining things. I have attended loads of this kind of training seminar over the years, and I found Ian’s presentation and content to be the best.
It was a very personal presentation, which became quite bespoke to the staff members present. He was clearly sincere, which means people will listen and value his advice.

“I really liked Ian’s approach it was really relaxed and spoken in easy to understand terms, which I found very helpful. Not too much jargon very informative”,

"Excellent delivery from someone who was well experienced in the field, who addressed questions appropriately whilst also encouraging us all in our own capacities"

"Really thorough and well delivered which gave the attendees quality learning in a relaxed atmosphere, something I will always remember”

"Extremely thought provoking and useful - great to learn from the experiences of others. Trainer was excellent and what a superb group with combined inputs created a pooling of experience and learning from many point of view."

Accredited workshop Feb 2019. Abuse working with Clients safely and congruently.

Ian comes to this workshop with over 20 years’ experience of working with Clients who have or are experiencing abuse in their lives, indeed his first Client had abuse as a background trigger to their issues around low confidence and self-esteem. This work experience started his journey of knowledge and awareness in this most difficult, heart wrenching but most rewarding work. His awareness knowledge and understanding that he has gained over those years will be fully shared with you on this workshop and some of the scenarios which give indications of an abuse process are explored below, although there are many more.

In our work how many times have you had the intuitive feeling that something is not helping the connection with the Client, something is getting in the way. Sometimes it might be the interruption to the work, Client no shows or late attendance, maybe it’s that the Client becomes awkward in communicating or seems to resort to childish behaviour. Maybe the works seems half completed or doesn’t have a flow to it, jumping around with no consistency to the work. These and many more aspects of the interactive process of our Client work shows signs of something more, something not being worked, something getting the way of the work. This could be cemented in an abusive aspect to the Clients life.

In this powerful CPD which focuses on the interactive inclusion of practice skills and constructive solutions.
It gives you tools to identify the clues and signs of knowing abuse is a feature of the work.
It gives you real tools to help engage with and support Clients who are or have experienced abuse.
It explores the subconscious drives and triggers which influence the Clients life.
It gives you different models of working with different types of abuse.
It looks at creating better more appropriate working alliances making it Client led work.
It gives you interactive processes to help release and work with the difficult emotions and memories which will surface.
It gives you productive and successful ways to help process and heal those influences to make the future more secure and controllable.
