Adult-Child Polarity in Emotionally Focused Counselling and Therapy

Presented by: Dr Judith Ayre


Individuals come to counselling because they feel unhappy and dissatisfied with aspects of their life. The difficulties they are experiencing tend to erode their feelings of lovability and worthiness and so assertive action becomes diminished. Clients lose their ability to operate from an adult place and instead revert to reacting in ways that developed from past adult and childhood experiences. In the Annandale model, we can employ the language of the inner child in order to conceptualise and work with the adult, parental and child aspects of clients. In this 2-day workshop, we will show you how to strengthen the adult aspect and hold the inner child using the verbal interventions as well as the creative intervention of cushion work. By helping clients become aware of their reactivity and to identify the different elements, we can support them in regaining and strengthening their adult self in order to be ready and able to do the experiencing work.

Cost: $400
