Service Description

An in person day (limited to 35 participants) exploring the theory, themes and issues which are specific to women who have boarded and how they may show up in the therapy room. There is very little training which specifically explores women’s experience. What is it like to grow up in a female body in a patriarchal institution? We welcome female, male, trans, non-binary therapists and coaches, who may also be ex boarders and non boarders as we can learn so much from each other. We will cover theory relevant to female and male boarders as well as practical ways of working gleaned from our many years of experience as specialists in this area of work. We will also focus on material specifically focussed on women’s experience, much of which is also applicable to all women who have brought up in a patriarchal society and culture. This includes looking at abandonment, internalised misogyny, friendship, envy, sexuality, competition, feminine and masculine archetypes, and shame. Sara Warner and Amelia White are a non-boarder ex- boarder team of therapists, who have been trained by Nick Duffell and specialise in working with those who have boarded. Sara has delivered previous training on working with women who have boarded and Amelia runs courses and facilitates groups for those who have been to boarding school. CPD certificate of 5.5 hours included. Cost £95 Saturday October 21st London. 10 -5pm, including tea/coffee and biscuits. Feedback from Sara’s previous training on working with women 'A day packed with thought provoking content and an environment that invited sharing of experience' 'It was a really good informative day...You covered different practical aspects of working with ex-boarders, delivered in a way I could understand'
