Working online with disregulated clients

Presented by Ann Oldknow
Tuesday, 12th December 2023 8pm

Synopsis:In this session Ann will look through a trauma-informed lens at how different types of disregulation can be recognised both online and in the therapy room. She will consider the importance of clients being able to regulate and bring themselves back to within the window of tolerance during therapy sessions. She will be exploring what to look out for in a client who is becoming disregulated in terms of cognitive, emotional, somatic, behavioural and relational aspects. Also considered will be different ways of working with disregulation, including breath and body work, cognitive and relational approaches as well as creative approaches such as the imagination. Ann draws on the work of Bessel Van Der Kolk, Pat Ogden, Janina Fisher, Richard Schwartz, Nigel Hamilton and others. The session will have a sprinkling of examples from Ann’s practice, some experiential participation as well as an opportunity to ask questions and share.

Biography: Following an MA in Transpersonal Psychotherapy, Ann undertook further training to specialise in Complex Trauma, including with Bessel Van Der Kolk’s Trauma Centre and the Trauma Research Foundation and Internal Family Systems to level 3. She is a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. Ann works in Private Practice as a therapist, supervisor and trainer as well as being a staff member at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education in London and the Instituto IFS in Barcelona.
