    The Invisible Lion: How to Explain Trauma in Plain English

    Columbia Hotel, 95-99 Lancaster Gate, London, W2 3NS

    Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th October 2017 9.30am - 5.00pm

    The founder of Khiron House hosts a two-day workshop to join up the language of the therapist with the experience of the client

    Many people suffer from mental, emotional, behavioral and physical problems which are difficult to explain clearly. These problems are often given names, or diagnoses, which sound like an explanation, but really these are just pseudo-explanations, words which mean nothing much more than the description of the problem itself, such as borderline, depression, anxiety, or addiction. These diagnoses don't add any new information or explain how the problem was caused.

    Benjamin Fry founded Khiron House because of his own journey as a patient in a system which used these labels. He has spent years getting to understand a much deeper picture of why these conditions occur and has hundreds of hours of clinical practice sharing his explanations with clients in consultations. He presents what he has learned through this process.
