Live Connection & Community
The pandemic left many of us feeling depleted and overwhelmed by our work. This group will help you rejuvenate and rediscover the passion that first ignited you.
Together, we create community, and a process to reflect on how our practice has shifted in this changing world. Find the many ways we find stability in uncertainty. Learn to ground this change, and harness our practice to become cutting edge practitioners.
Do you work with clients in a process-oriented way? Do you stay in the flow and want to respect the whole person? Traditionally, it could be considered inappropriate to set goals or that is somehow goes against respecting process and deep therapeutic.
Michele O’Brien brings her decades of therapeutic experience to this excellent curriculum of how to skilfully set goals with a client, from an embodied, deeper place. You will learn how to collaboratively find what the client wants to work toward, give your sessions structure, and use the structure of the therapeutic relationship to help establish these goals.
Blocks are the goals. It is about how to work with the the client to understand how they can express them. In this course you will learn to creatively use a Likert scale to help clients identify their blocks and to get clear about what you are doing and what you’re not doing.

PSYCHOTHERAPIST, SUPERVISOR, TRAINER
Based in South West Ireland, Michele is a practicing psychotherapist with over 20 years’ experience including 10 years’ experience in supervision.
Michele sees supervision as a dynamic process, focusing on creating a collaborative learning space, with the client at the centre. She brings a refreshing, creative approach, incorporating process work, art, movement, nature and humour.
She provides supervision to psychotherapists at different levels of experience; trainees, pre-accredited and experienced therapists, both in private practice and in groups for therapists in organisations.
In 2015 Michele undertook a research project “Keeping Psychotherapy Relevant to These Changing Times” which she presented at the IAHIP conference 2016, and subsequently other supervisory and therapy conferences.
This research has been a core motivation and has informed her practice. It is constantly evolving, tested and upgraded.
In 2018 she presented her paper on the complex role of the supervisor at the IAPOP conference in Dublin. Her talk was about holding the tension between legal and ethical requirements, staying in relationship and supporting each individual client and therapist.
She trained with Dublin Counselling & Therapy Centre as a psychotherapist. She later completed a Masters in Supervisory Practice with NUI, Milltown Institute, Dublin.
Michele maintains a private practice in Kenmare, Co Kerry, Ireland, her home for 30 years. Her work is supported by a daily meditation practice, time spent in nature, swimming, gardening and creative expression through art textiles.
