Two hour CPD workshop organised by Suffolk Association for Counselling with

Camilla Ghazala

Time and Date:  7.00pm-9.00pm • 19 October 2017

Venue:  Holiday Inn, London Road, Ipswich IP2 0UA


Working with Dreams using Gestalt Psychotherapy

The aim and ethos of Gestalt Psychotherapy is developing self-awareness not to focus on thinking or acting differently as this development grows organically out of self-awareness.  If we wish to develop we need to understand and respect the private logic and patterns that encourage and discourage our wellbeing and the human needs that are being met through our patterns.  When we have reached a place of respect and acceptance towards ourselves can core development take place.

Our dreams contain a mass of information that are nuggets of knowledge, skills, attributes, feeling and creativity that may be overlooked as they are wrapped in code and create a foundation for organic development.

This talk will visit some key Gestalt concepts and work experientially using Helen McLean’s model of dream process.

Please could you bring a written note of one of your dreams (even a tiny snippet can be worked with).  If you don’t have a dream accessible, please bring a written paragraph explaining your favourite scene in a movie/TV show.  Gestalt process always begins with working with our own material before we use these processes with a client, so please do not bring material that belongs to a client or another third party. Due to time, not all participants will experience both elements (working with their dream and coaching another through the process).

My passion is enabling myself and others to develop their awareness, stability, self-management and resilience using safe, effective therapeutic and educative interventions.

My private practice (since 1981) is a balance of 1-1, couples, family, group therapy and coaching, and encouraging education treating a range of wellbeing issues and providing preventative education. My NHS (since 2004 primary and secondary care) work includes assessment, formulating and treating anxiety disorders, depression, acute low self-esteem and PD’s (Bipolar, EUPD, Dual Diagnosis).

As an integrative therapist, coach, supervisor and tutor my foundation is Adlerian Psychology which I have woven together with CBT, Gestalt, Buddhist Psychology, Mindfulness, TA, Energy Psychology, HeartMind Process and Nutrition and Mental Wealth.
