Short-term Counselling working in depth – with Katina Noble & Natasha Maher

November 20 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

£65.00 - £75.00

 This is a fast-paced active relational model, mainly informed by the work of David Malan, Gertrude Mander and Angela Molnos, among others.

In the present economic climate, with new clients able to afford fewer sessions and with less funding for organisations who offer free or low-cost counselling, counselling sessions are often limited to 6 or even less sessions.

The fear is, with limited sessions, how far can one go with the client? Will the relationship perhaps only be a superficial meeting of minds with little chance to really establish a solid working alliance?

This workshop aims to introduce an integrative model, which offers more depth in a short space of time. The model is primarily psychodynamic, integrating some cognitive and person-centred elements.

Katina Noble trained at BCPC in Bath as a Humanistic and Integrative Counsellor. She co-ran the Student Counselling Service at Weston College for 21 years with Phillipa Henley. Although they did work longer term with some vulnerable students, the model was generally for short term work, up to 6 sessions. Alongside this, Katina worked in private practice with EAP clients. In this work, the model is again mainly 6 sessions. One EAP trained all its’ affiliates in an integrative model with a strong psychodynamic element as it offers a depth and different dimensions to the work. Katina is passionate about this model and has co-run trainings on it for many years.

Natasha Maher also trained at BCPC in Bath as a Humanistic and Integrative Counsellor. Now co-running the Counselling service at Weston College since 2017 (taking over from Katina and Phillipa), she started working with young people in 2012 and has a particular passion in supporting students who struggle with anger and low self-worth. The eight-session short-term psychodynamic model underpins how she works there, whilst integrating other modalities including shadow work, dream work and internal family systems therapy. Alongside this, Natasha has a private practice in Bristol as well as working as a sessional therapist at a local private hospital where she has recently started to facilitate a supportive psychotherapy group. In both of these roles she works with adults on a long and short-term basis, where the psychodynamic model is again the foundation of the work.
