Dr Helena Hargaden

Helena Hargaden has developed a relational approach to psychotherapy and supervision influenced by Jungian, psychoanalytic and humanistic perspectives. She has been widely published and translated into a number of other languages and is known in particular for her award winning work on 'Transactional Analysis: A Relational Perspective', with her co author Charlotte Sills. She is interested in how the relational approach works with unconscious enactments both in therapy and supervision settings. She will be drawing on material from her latest book, 'The Art of Relational Supervision' to think about the ubiquity of enactments in the therapeutic encounter and how they reveal themselves in relational group supervision.
