Endings: How Much Time Is Enough?

Saturday 6 May 2017 10am – 1pm

Presented by Ally Kessler


The subject of endings gives rise to fundamental questions about what psychotherapy is for and how we know when it is finished. It is often a time of anxiety for both patient and therapist and is particularly prey to the pressures of idealisation, theoretical beliefs and the demands of patients and organisations.

In this workshop participants will think together about their clinical experiences of endings; we will explore the difficulties and questions that arise for patient and therapist, as we consider the question: how much time is enough?


Ally Kessler is a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, and a training therapist and supervisor at the Severnside Institute of Psychotherapy in Bristol. She teaches Winnicott, Analytic Technique, and Time-Limited Therapy seminars at SIP. Arising from her work as psychotherapist, supervisor and trainee co-ordinator at The Harbour in Bristol, she has led workshops and study days on working with people affected by life-threatening illness. She is Chair of the Psychodynamic Training at SIP.

Cost: £35 External, £30 each for external groups of 3 or more
