Course description

This unique reading group is now entering its 16th year and is still going strong. We are delighted to be able to offer an opportunity to explore, examine and enjoy the books below. Our presenters have been stimulating and challenging, and have introduced us to new delights or opened up fresh vistas onto pre-loved favourites.

Although many participants have been trainees and practising counsellors or psychotherapists, everyone is welcome to attend. If you are thinking of attending for the first time or have enjoyed one of the previous sessions, why not tell a friend and encourage them to come along too. Please read the book before attending.

All are welcome to attend this event.

    Holding Time:  human need and relationships in dementia care by Esther Ramsay-Jones
    Led by Jan McHugh

Please book your ticket for January Reading Group via WPF Therapy Eventbrite Page.

We are delighted that Esther Ramsay-Jones will be joining us for this group. She is looking forward to taking part in the discussion of her book, as well as answering any questions.

Esther Ramsay-Jones is a palliative psychotherapist in a hospice setting and in private practice. She worked for many years in frontline care for older people, the memories of which spurred her on to carry out PhD research in this area. Holding Time takes the reader into the care homes of two women living with dementia and the staff who look after them each day, drawing from psychoanalytic observations of the daily micro-interactions between people which either helped or hindered connection.

Esther Ramsay-Jones has been a lecturer in ‘Death, Dying and Bereavement’ at the Open University.  She has presented her work at various locations around the world and her papers have been published in academic journals and anthologies.
