The psychotherapist has the potential to save people from killing themselves. The psychotherapist can help to restore broken marriages and mend shattered families. But the burdens of working psychotherapeutically can be immense, not only emotionally but, also, medically, across the life cycle.
In this specially constructed one-day workshop, Professor Brett Kahr, one of the United Kingdom’s most distinguished psychotherapists, will share his extensive 40 years of experience with participants, investigating both the pitfalls and the pleasures of this unusual, but vital, profession.
Kahr will expand upon his widely regarded book, How to Flourish as a Psychotherapist (Phoenix Publishing House, 2019), which jumped to the top of the Karnac Books bestseller list upon publication. This frank guidebook to our profession provides a first-hand glimpse into the life cycle of the psychotherapist from the early years of training to preparation for retirement and death.
This special masterclass will offer participants a privileged glimpse into Professor Kahr’s thoughts about the factors which either facilitate or inhibit creative growth across our working lives and will provide registrants with an opportunity to reflect upon their own careers with direct supervisory input from Kahr. We will consider how to maximise our creative capacities, how to find a voice outside the consulting room, how to flourish as a teacher, writer, lecturer and supervisor, and how to minimise the potentiality of burnout and despair. We shall also consider unconscious factors such as a fear of envy and a terror of success which prevent us from maximising our potentialities as psychotherapy practitioners.
