Galway Psychotherapy and Consulting Sexuality, the Body, and Body Image


Wednesday to Friday, 28th to 30th June, 2017

Marine Hotel, Sutton Cross, Dublin

Facilitated by Mike O’Halloran and Evelyn P. Gilmore

This workshop provides an opportunity for psychotherapists, counsellors, psychologists, coaches, educators, health care professionals and allied professions to enhance their awareness of their own sexuality, to build greater awareness of their bodies, and to explore various aspects of their body image in a new way. During the workshop, as participants explore these issues and gain greater awareness themselves, it will provide them with new opportunities and greater insight when working with their clients on issues around sexuality, the body, and body image.

However, often individuals struggle to cope with issues around their sexuality, with shame and guilt around their bodies, with feelings of powerlessness around life choices and decisions related to sexuality and the body, and with a distorted body image.

During the three days, participants will be provided with an opportunity to explore the following:
