Booking is now open for Women’s Aid’s first National Therapy conference

Bridging the Gap: where is the place for therapy in our services? This event will discuss the importance of specialist domestic abuse counselling as a part of recovery and explore why a feminist approach matters. The day has been designed to meet the needs of:

  • counsellors and therapists working in our member and other services;
  • counsellors and therapists likely to be seeing clients affected by domestic and sexual violence or with an interest in doing so;
  • domestic and sexual violence service providers interested in developing the counselling and therapeutic responses available to their service users;
  • managers and advocates for these services and those that evaluate and monitor them.

With inspirational key note speakers, panel discussions, interactive workshops and networking opportunities, this promises to be a day of practice development which will strengthen the case for our specialist therapy provision.

Speakers include:

Susie Orbach, feminist psychotherapist, psychoanalyst, writer, activist and social critic. Founder of the Women’s Therapy Centre in London and Co-Author of Understanding Women (1984)

Rajwinder da Costa, Clinical Manager, Ashiana Network

Vivienne Hayes, CEO at Women’s Resource Centre

Rebecca Vagi, Change that Lasts Development Manager, Women’s Aid

Katie Ghose, CEO, Women’s Aid

Conference Chair is Becky Rogerson, Director at My Sisters Place
