With Phil Mollon & Ruthie Smith

The evolution of psychotherapy has been a remarkable journey, Freud’s discovery of the unconscious paved the way for a deeper understanding of human behaviour and motivation. Over time, attachment theory expanded our understanding of interpersonal dynamics, illuminating the crucial role of early relationships in shaping mental well-being. Advancements in neurobiology unveiled the intricate interplay between brain structures and psychological processes. Insights into the body-mind connection underscored the significance of trauma and its somatic manifestations, emphasising the need for holistic approaches. Today, psychotherapy embraces a new frontier by incorporating subtle energy systems. This integration acknowledges the energetic dimensions of human experience, bridging ancient wisdom with modern science.

The journey from Freud’s initial revelations to the present marks a testament to the field’s resilience and adaptability. By integrating psychoanalysis, attachment theory, neurobiology, understanding the body’s role in trauma, and now embracing subtle energy systems, psychotherapy continues to evolve, offering a more comprehensive and inclusive approach to working with the complexities of the human experience.

In this engaging workshop, Phil Mollon and Ruthie Smith will share their journey of integrating subtle energy fields work within the framework of their traditional psychoanalytic and attachment trainings. They will offer ways of incorporating this new approach, affirming its compatibility with established therapeutic methodologies. Notably, Ruthie will provide a personal narrative of her transformative experience with energy psychotherapy to work through early infantile trauma inaccessible through other approaches. Ruthie’s first hand account serves as a powerful testament to the potential of this approach in catalysing growth and healing.

Join this enlightening workshop to discover how the coupling of subtle energy fields with traditional psychotherapy can create a profound shift for clients, fostering a deeper level of understanding and freedom from repetitions and traumas for clients.

This workshop will include lectures, a personal account, one brief experiential exercise, Q&A and breakout rooms to discuss the work with colleagues.
