Enrollment now open.

A 24 hours live training over 4 separate days

Each day with a specific subject with times allocated for an interactive presentation, group work to practise & consider approaches and discussions to share understanding and learning.

Day 1: Trauma & Menopause: Where are we now within the narratives.

Who are you sitting with in the therapeutic space? Reflections of the therapist’s self as well as the clients. 

This workshop offers the space to understand how the impact of historical misrepresentation of the intersection of menopause and trauma can have affected both the client and therapist. By exploring the meaning of our own conditioning of menopause within the family and culturally, therapists will be better positioned to begin to build a framework to meet the needs of the client.


Day 2: Trauma & Menopause: Understanding the impact of relational dynamics. 

Where is the power balance in the therapeutic space? How did it get there? 

This second workshop considers the ethnography of patriarchy and its effects within the therapeutic space. An experiential approach is used to help place the therapist’s understanding of the intricacies of the correlation between trauma and menopause in relation to the impact of disempowerment that can occur through social conditioning.


Day 3: Trauma & Menopause: How to work with parts and who’s holding them. 

How to manage fragmentation and disconnect through an inevitable outcome of menopause. 

The third workshop examines how to support clients to build a relationship with their parts. We will move beyond ideas of integration to learning to live alongside parts, both emotionally and somatically, to recognise the value of their supportive position within the client’s coping mechanisms.


Day 4: Trauma & Menopause: Working with the triple point of shame, grief & humiliation. 

Moving alongside within a shared phenomenological framework to connect the triad of conflicting emotions.

The final workshop focuses on the creation of a therapeutic framework that recognises the challenges surrounding the embedded emotional toll of the burden of associated shame, grief and humiliation. By recognising the phenomena of this triad, therapists will be equipped with a different skill set to help support/reduce a client’s distress.
