Workshop: 10:00 – 13:00

Speaker: Jill Hughes 

The workshop will offer an overview of Shame from an experiential perspective. We will consider shame triggers and shame binds and shame in the therapy room, the inadvertent shaming of our clients/patients and our own shame patterns and triggers. How do we heal ruptures in the therapeutic relationship when one or other or both of us is in a shame place? We will be aware of the potential for shame in the room as we share in the discussion.

Jill Hughes is a UKCP registered Gestalt Psychotherapist and Supervisor trained at the Edinburgh Gestalt Institute and the Metanoia Institute, London. Following a long career in aid and development in South and Southeast Asia, Jill now has a private practice in both West London and Edinburgh, working with individuals, couples and groups, and hasd a noticeably high proportion of male clients. Jill is also a visiting tutor and examiner at IATE in Islington. In 2011 – 2013 Jill undertook the Developmental Somatic Psychotherapy training (part-time) at the Institute of Somatic Studies, NYC with Dr Ruella Frank, and following this has facilitated several small groups for mothers and babies.
