Webinar Description: This webinar is a passionate and scientific plea for emotion focused counselling which seems especially important during these times of Covid-19. In my supervision groups and in my own practice of counselling I recognize a fear of talking about feelings via video technology. Counselling is getting more solution-oriented and more technical. First, the presentation is about ‘talking about feelings’ (the client’s and ours) in counselling – is the tribute to Otto Rank, Carl Rogers, Fritz Perls and Virginia Satir. It hopes to serve as a reminder of their substantial contributions to counselling. I will speak about my understanding of „I and Thou ¬– Here and Now“ and about sharing the raw, honest, thoughts and feelings about what's happening in the moment. Let’s get in touch with each other, even in physical distance, but not in social distance.
