Working with the Inner Child

Starting Saturday 27 February 2021

10am- 2pm

Live Zoom Sessions

1 Saturday a Month

I have believed for a long time that the inner child holds the key to deep, profound healing. Reconnecting and re-parenting the inner child is usually the last piece of the jigsaw in many peoples healing journey.

This course is deeply transformational on a personal level as it is practical in giving you the skills to work with your clients inner child.

The course is designed to be playful and creative, as that’s what children do best.

What we will explore;

Understanding the concept of the inner child

Meeting your inner child and learning to communicate effectively

Theories and models relating to the inner child

Building a trusting, safe relationship with your inner child

Understanding adverse childhood experiences (ACES)

Re-parenting your inner child


You will be required to create a mask, drawing, poem, or other creative representation of your inner child. 

You will share your project with the group and talk through where you believe your inner child is right now, what needs they have (if any) and how you’re going to continue to nurture them. 

A certificate will be issued on completion of the course for 30 hours of CPD.
