Sensitive Observation and the Nine Voices of Non-verbal Communication

Sensitive Observation and the Nine Voices of Non-verbal Communication

March 9, 2022

Sunday, 10 April 2022, at 2.00 p.m. (Sydney, Australia)

Presenter: Richard Hill

So much of our work with clients is conducted through language and even the silence of private inner work, but our “being” communicates in many other ways. Sensitive observation is a vital therapeutic skill, so we need to know what our other “voices” are trying to communicate to us.

Richard will explore nine of these voices and how we can integrate their messages into the therapeutic experience. Our conscious brain can observe the non-conscious processes that speak to us through brains and processes that are not in our skull! We will explore how to “hear” what is happening beyond just language and emotion. We will discover the wealth of content that the client brings with them into every session.

The Art of the Client-Responsive Approach & the Elimination of Resistance  - via Zoom  


"A client books in for therapy, pays in advance, travels to your clinic. She then fills out the paperwork, sits back in the chair, but is unresponsive to your efforts to induce or maintain trance and resists your best suggestions.  What is happening here? That is what we will explore during this workshop. Ernest Rossi introduced me to the concept of client-responsiveness and we worked on it together for 15 years. 

This is not about getting the client to be more responsive to you, but how to help the therapist be more responsive to the client! There are a number of contributions made in the field and we will explore some of their origins, but most importantly we will explore the origin of all therapies – the client. What can we do to develop our sensitivity, our observation and the nature of the way we respond? There will a variety of workshop activities to practice and experience the concepts". Richard Hill
