Come to  an innovative, residential weekend based in beautiful Grasmere in the heart of the Lake District

Friday tea-time, March 9th through to Sunday brunch, March 11th 2018

Each year the SAP runs a sell-out Foundations Course in London.  We have decided to develop a new format – a long weekend in the Lake District – covering an introduction to Jung’s ideas and approach to psychotherapy.

Over the weekend, we will be introducing our favourite Jungian ideas with illustrations from our therapeutic practice. To allow the experience to be digested and personalized, we will be providing facilitated, reflective learning groups, social dreaming workshops, and even a guided walk.

The Lake District National Park is a newly appointed World Heritage Site. It enjoys a unique place and meaning amongst the population of the British Isles and beyond. With breath-taking beauty and a rich Romantic poetic history, Grasmere in particular has an unparalleled ability to provide an excellent ‘retreat’ location for Jungian introductory courses.

The weekend provides 10 hours towards continuing professional development. A minimum attendance of 80% is required to receive a course completion certificate.


SAP members involved this weekend will be Roselyn Abbott (host and group facilitator), with speakers Christopher Perry and Susanna Wright.

Christopher Perry is an SAP supervising analyst, who supervises for both the SAP and the British Psychotherapy Foundation. He has previously been the SAP Director of Training.
