Psychotherapy Residential Weekends:
Group currently full but please contact Sandy to be put on waiting list – first come first basis.
Brimpts Farm, Dartmeet, Dartmoor, Devon.
These psychotherapy weekends have been running for several years now and are very popular. They provide a safe place for people to look at areas of their lives. Some people come to simply take time out to reflect & re-connect to others & themselves. Others come to explore more specific and difficult issues.
The group benefits from the rich mix of focused exercises, psychodrama/action techniques & exploration of the group dynamics as they evolve. Trust is very important on these weekends enabling the group to work at a powerful level. Sandy’s role is to facilitate the group to work at a pace comfortable to all.
The group is open to experienced therapists and trainees as well as people who have done some personal work on themselves .
Outside the group times we have time to get to know each other, have some fun and enjoy the gorgeous surroundings… weather permitting!
The group is a closed group, meaning new members can’t join until a place becomes available. There are 10 places available on each weekend.
The group is currently full but please don’t let this stop you phoning to discuss with Sandy as the process of joining can take a little time and new members will join on a first come first served basis. Assessment for the group happens by initially an informal chat over the phone then an assessment meeting (face to face or Skype if you live at a distance). The cost of this session will be £65 .
Group members get to know each other very well, as a result of meeting twice a year. The group is mature so therefore can work at a deep level. This builds safe relationships in the knowledge that they will know who is in the group each weekend.
New members attend all weekends twice a year. If you are interested in being part of this on going group then please get in touch regarding more details.
Just bring an openness to connect to others and to yourself.
The weekends are held at Brimpts Farm, Dartmeet, Devon. The farm nestles in the heart of the West Country’s Dartmoor National Park in Devon. The venue is in an amazing part of the world and the area has much to explore if you decide to take a longer break following the weekend. See Brimpts Farm website for more information.
