Seidenfaden & Draiby

A Weekend Workshop 

(no date sceduled at the moment)

in Petersfield south of LONDON

This two-day Workshop is designed for couples who want to focus both on deepening intimacy in their day to day life together as well as working on the challenges they experience in their relationship. The aim is to enable couples to develop a deeply satisfying relationship that is built on a realistic picture of one another and thus achieve a closer and more intimate relationship. In the workshop we focus on developing an understanding of the processes that contribute to our differences and frustrations.

Your relationship is our focus and we teach you how to work with the process we call the Dialogue of Acknowledgment. Our belief is that our early relationships profoundly influence our later couple relationships as our childhood ‘dramas’ surface in the context of our intimate adult relationships.

Ideas and skills will be presented through mini- lectures, video-clips, demonstrations, and exercises focusing on communication techniques and processes as well as through written work and exercises based on a detailed manual given to each workshop participant. Kirsten and Piet assisted by experienced couples’ therapists will provide plenty of support and encouragement for participants throughout the two days of the workshop. 

Mini-lectures, video clips and demonstrations take place in the large group but all the exercises are completed privately by participants and shared only between partners in order to ensure a sense of safety and confidentiality throughout the workshop. From experience we know that the large group sessions provide a unique opportunity for sharing experiences,  but at the same time we also stress that it is entirely at participants´ discretion to decide whether anything from the work done privately by partners is shared in the larger group .
