Silence, Solitude, and Loneliness:
Perspectives from Relational Integrative Psychotherapy.

The International Integrative Psychotherapy Association’s 10th Professional Educational Conference.

London, UK >> March 17 to 19, 2022

This International Conference will present the philosophy, theories, and methods of a developmentally-based, relationally focused, Integrative Psychotherapy as conceived by Richard G. Erskine, PhD and Associates of the Institute for Integrative Psychotherapy, founded in New York City in 1976.

In this conference we will explore the themes of silence, solitude, and loneliness. Through a series of keynote speeches and professional development workshops we will emphasize the centrality of a healing therapeutic relationship by focusing on the art and science of facilitating our client’s internal integration of affect, physiology, cognition, and behaviour.

This conference program will feature a variety of workshops that will include theoretical presentations, demonstrations of various therapeutic methods, experiential exercises, case discussions of therapeutic work with actual clients, and an exploration of the philosophies and ethics of Integrative Psychotherapy.

Please reserve the dates of March 17 to 19, 2022 in your calendar for this professionally invigorating conference. We are currently finalizing plans for our London venue and will post updated information from time to time on this website.

The IIPA was created by an international community of relational psychotherapists guided by the theory and methods of Integrative Psychotherapy as developed by Dr. Richard G. Erskine. The IIPA seeks to develop competent practitioners of a developmentally based and relationally focused integrative psychotherapy as well as to challenge the experienced practitioner in the pursuit of professional excellence and personal development

I have been in private practice as a psychotherapist for over 20 years. My practice is based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, but I work with clients from all over the world on-line. I love doing in-depth psychodynamic psychotherapy with individuals and couples.

My parents were artists and musicians and I have always had a passion for music. It gives me great joy to pursue excellence in violin and ensemble playing. Recently I have combined my passions for psychotherapy and music by helping musicians overcome their personal blocks to realize their potential.
