Working creatively with psychosis is a one-day practice workshop that will explore how we can use Voice Dialogue, Body Dialogue and Voice Sculpting ways of working that can enable clients to explore the most difficult parts of their distress in a safe and secure enviornment.

Rooted in a narrative approach of working and building on work carried out by Micheal & Cheryl White and Marius Romme & Sandra Escher, Eleanor Longden, Rufus May & Elisabeth Svanholmer and Dirk Corstens, this workshop will explore the use of the techniques above both as a theory and a practice.  Taylor and Coleman have been successfully using these techniques with Voice Hearers, People who see Visions, People with belief systems that are different and other extreme states.  They have also found it useful for clients with a label of Borderline.

Moving beyond the concept of illness to one of wellbeing is for Taylor and Coleman a process and it is a process that they will unpick during the workshop breaking it down to a series of interactive conversations and exercises that participants will be able to use after the day.


On the day participants will cover:

  • What is Voice Dialogue and How do we use it?
  • What is Body Dialogue and How do we use it?
  • What is Voice Sculpting and How do we use it?
  • Creating the Safe Environment
  • Taking the work forward with Confidence
