Further information

Hi. My name is Geoff Fitzgerald. I am a Psychotherapist in full-time private practice. I have been a therapist for 25 years and been in full-time private practice for the last 8 years. I originally trained as a Social Worker and as a Family Therapist. I have published two papers in Psychotherapy in Australia. For three years I facilitated a large network of Mental Health Professionals who met regularly to receive training in Mental Health and Attachment Theory and Practice.

This group will meet every two months. Meetings will fall on the first Tuesday of every second month.

The meeting will last for 90 minutes. The group will consider a paper/ a passage provided to them in the preceding month. I will facilitate a collaborative group discussion regarding the ideas. We will also discuss the ideas in relation to a Case Study.

This is not a didactic meeting. It will rely on the reflections and contributions of participants.

The text studied will be provided by me and/or other participants. The text may come from any school of psychotherapy. The text may also come from a discipline outside of psychotherapy (eg. philosophy), as long as it lends itself to being applied to the practice of psychotherapy.

There is no charge at this stage.

If you contact me by text or by email to register your name, I will let you know the venue.
