The Vanished Self Returns: A Case Study

Thu 12 Feb 2015, 19:30

Adlerian Society UK presents

Adlerian Society London Lecture

"The Vanished Self Returns: A Case Study" Presented by Annie McDonald

Writer, producer, and psychodynamic psychotherapist, Annie MacDonald, presents an intriguing case study. 

Eight years ago, a young man in his mid-thirties began coming to see me for weekly therapy. Since adolescence he had been troubled by ‘severe and enduring’ mental health problems, having been sectioned three times with episodes of hypomania punctuated with periods of depression. His sense of self had all but vanished and he became convinced that his body emitted a foul odour which was uncontrollable and intermittent, and this conviction caused him great anguish. It was unbearable, he told me, being him. But, after 14 years of psychotherapy with various therapists, and with psychiatrically monitored medication, he managed to complete a Master’s degree in Health psychology, studied Yoga to instructor level, took up sport again and meditated regularly. Over the past 3 years he had developed a new self-confidence and self-belief and has now written a remarkable and detailed memoir of his journey from oblivion to stability and growth. We are currently working towards possible publication.

Annie MacDonald is a psychodynamic psychotherapist and a writer. After starting out studying psychology, she taught in an inner city primary school, became a scriptwriter at Thames Television, raised a family, produced an 18 year series for Channel 4 following children growing up (Citizen 2000) and has been in private practice as a therapist in London for the past 16 years. Her work has been enriched by courses on Jung and Adler. Her most recently published short story is ‘Avoiding the Toads’ in Tales of Psychotherapy (Karnac Books).

Tickets: Admission £7 (concessions £4) All welcome. No need to book.

CPD certificates are available.

NOW Live Events presents

Sarah Rozenthuler - How to Have that Big Conversation

A self-development workshop in partnership with Psychologies Magazine (www.psychologies.co.uk)

Having life-changing conversations and talking about something that matters is a big threshold to cross. Communicating effectively at work and in your personal life strengthens relationships, opens doors to new opportunities and makes you feel better about yourself and others.

At this workshop you will learn:

- How to call up your courage and have that conversation

- Speak your truth without rupturing a relationship

- Express your feelings without being triggered

- How to communicate more effectively in general to improve your relationships

This fascinating workshop with psychologist Sarah Rozenthuler, author of Life-Changing Conversations: 7 Strategies For Talking About What Matters Most, will give you the know-how to have that significant conversation, whether at work or at home.

This event is in partnership with Psychologies Magazine (www.psychologies.co.uk) as part of our NOW Live Events ongoing events series.

Tickets: £18

START AND END TIME: 7-8.30pm
