About The Event

These linked workshops use the framework of Karpman’s Drama Triangle to help practitioners move away from fear and towards a focused, solution-oriented approach so that they feel able to expand their work into new areas.

Each week focuses on one aspect of the drama triangle and employs various therapeutic approaches to provide answers to common problems such as imposter syndrome and procrastination.

It is suitable for anyone who has the desire to move more deeply into their counselling practice but feels hampered both by practicalities such as time and money, and by their fears about being good enough to engage in the work.


Week 1: Thursday 20th June, 10.00am – 12.30pm

Week 2: Thursday 28th June, 10.00am – 12.30pm

Week 3: Thursday 4th July, 10.00am – 12.30pm

Week 4: Thursday 11th July 10.00am – 12.30pm

Week 1:

In this workshop we’ll work on exploring what it is that we are seeking to achieve in our practice, introduce the Drama Triangle and examine how it impacts us in terms of personal and professional growth. We’ll discuss alternative ways of being that enable a proactive approach to develop ourselves, our practice, and if relevant, our business.

Week 2:

In the second workshop we will identify the ways in which we use self-criticism and shame to sabotage ourselves and our practice. We’ll discuss how self-care and self-compassion can make a difference when we’re encountering difficulties.

Week 3:

In week 3, the focus is on the things that can distract us from working towards our goals. We’ll examine imposter syndrome, comparanioa, “shiny object syndrome”, and the qualification treadmill. We’ll discuss how to grow and be creative in our practice when experiencing self-doubt.

Week 4:

To conclude the training, the final session will draw all the threads together and include group coaching. Participants are invited to bring an issue for discussion. This may be a business, practice, or personal dilemma and the coaching will be focused around the individual mindset issues that arise. Please note, this is not supervision and participants are reminded to work within the boundaries of confidentiality.
