Existential Therapy WorkshopRelational Depth Seminar

This one day seminar, taught by Mick Cooper, is available in Exeter. The seminar is appropriate for training and practising counsellors, psychotherapists, counselling psychologists and other mental health professionals.

What does it mean to connect to others in an in-depth way? What are the effects of relating deeply to clients in therapy, and how can such an encounter be facilitated?

This seminar will give participants an opportunity to explore their experiences of relational depth, and how it feels to meet others at this level of intensity and intimacy: in both their therapeutic practice and everyday life. Through small group exercises, pairs-work, discussion and theory input, the seminar will help participants develop a deeper understanding of such encounters, and also how they come to deepen their levels of relating in their therapeutic work.


By the end of this seminar, participants will be able to:
  • Understand the nature of relational depth
  • Articulate their own experiences of in-depth relating
  • Understand the latest research findings on the nature, impact and prevalence of relational depth in therapy
  • Recognise means of deepening levels of relating with clients
  • Recognise their own chronic strategies of disconnection and other barriers to relational depth
