Cultivating a self-reflective practice is important for both the well-being of the therapist and that of the client. By looking inwards, we can reveal countertransference responses and prevent burnout. Yet accessing aspects of our unconscious isn’t always easy nor is it straightforward. This interactive workshop explores the technique of drawing with eyes closed as a way to bypass common blocks in self-reflection and gain insights from our innermost experiences.
