The Client’s Perspective: Pesso Boyden System of Psychotherapy (PSBP) – Juliet Grayson
April 28 @ 11:30 am – 12:30 pm BST
Juliet will interview John about his experience of attending a 4-day PBSP Intensive as a client. This was a residential workshop, where she was the therapist leading client sessions using PBSP. This was John’s first experience as a client, and Juliet will be asking him about the immediate impact and the longer term effects of one session of PBSP.
I’m a psychosexual psychotherapist, coach, teacher, and have been working as a psychotherapist since 1991. I specialise in working with couples and sexual problems. I also work with people who are facing a life-limiting diagnosis. I am UKCP registered, NLPtCA accredited, COSRT accredited, and PBSP accredited as a psychotherapist. I am recognised by UKCP as a NLPtCA supervisor and COSRT supervisor. I am also an accredited PBSP supervisor and one of the first PBSP accredited trainers in the UK. I have a private practice in South Wales.
One thing I offer is Couples Intensive therapy sessions. A couple who are struggling come for 3 1/2 hours of therapy one afternoon, stay locally, and then we do another 3 1/2 hours of therapy the next morning. This is really helpful for moving through a particular issue, or moment of crisis.
After many years of exploring different types of therapeutic systems, in 2001, I discovered the Pesso Boyden System of Psychotherapy (PBSP). I am passionate about this because it is so effective, enabling clients not just to learn to cope with their issues, but to be able to (in many cases) fundamentally shift and change them, so that they see the world differently. As a client said to me, “It’s like speed-dialling the unconscious.” As yet, PBSP is not well known in the UK, and I want to change that. I have some groups that meet four times a year. These meet in London, Bristol, and South Wales. I also run two residential workshops every year, supervision days that are open to all, and 2-day workshops in Oxfordshire.
I work with the general public, and often work with other psychotherapists and counsellors who want help. Hence, I have been called “The Therapist’s Therapist!”
I designed and run (alongside my team) a twelve day programme, in six modules each of two days. This teaches therapists, counsellors, psychologists, coaches, and health professionals how to work with relationship issues and sexual problems. This course is approved by COSRT for CPD.
We (Sally Potter, Sandy Cotter, and I) offer training courses for qualified therapists who want to learn PSBP. Therapists who are interested in adding Pesso Boyden to their repertoire can join a one-year or three-year training starting in October 2019. Visit “Pesso Boyden Training UK” for details.
I am co-founder of StopSO (Specialist Treatment Organisation for Perpetrators and Survivors of Sexual Offences). StopSO has a UK wide network of psychotherapists and counsellors who offer therapy in the community for those at risk of sexual offending or re-offending. The aim of StopSO is to help potential perpetrators in order to stop new victims of sexual abuse from being created. This is a cost effective way of protecting society. My view is prevent, prevent, prevent, rather than respond, respond, respond.
