The length of sessions varies according to the individual needs of the client. Please discuss with your therapist what is best for you.
Groups are run on a weekly basis and last 3 hours.
To be able to attend group you must have completed a live-in intensive. We encourage you to use the group dynamics to help access feelings by:
- Observing, listening and learning from the way others access their feelings.
- Experiment and discover what feels right for you.
- If someone is triggering a feeling in you, use it to take you where you need to go.
- Being aware of and express your internal language and dialogue.
- Pay attention to defences.
- Listen to your body - What does it want to do?
- Acknowledge and use the powerful energies of transference.
A residential primal intensive is a wonderful opportunity that allows you to fully engage with the primal process, free from outside distractions.
Intensives are run on an individual basis and vary in length from 4 days to 3 weeks, depending on your individual needs and requirements.
Please contact the centre to discuss the opportunity of a Residential Primal Intensive and if it is the next step for you.
(Please note: Key hire allowing 24/7 red room access is available for clients who have completed an intensive and live in Melbourne Australia)
"It is a beautiful setup. The Intensive is thoughtfully run and feels safe. The therapists are professional. It is a good place to be if you are ready for the isolation and intensity."
"During the primal intensive I was able to relive certain abusive scenes from my childhood in a deeper way. I was surprised at the intensity of the rage I expressed during primal even though it has always tormented me. A part of me didn't want to acknowledge it and I had a habit of denying it existed. The intensive helped me face it and feel it and I feel much better as a result. I feel much less fear of my anger knowing how it originated."
Phone or Skype Sessions
As many clients live in different parts of the world and are not able to attend individual sessions or do an intensive in person we offer phone or Skype sessions.
We have found Skype session in particular to be very affordable and personable way to experience Primal. The most important criteria for beginning and continuing your therapy in this medium is that you work in a place where you feel safe and that you know you will not be disturbed.
It is also important that as much as possible you are free to make as much noise as you need or want to. If this is not always possible sound can be modifies by using pillows etc.
Please note as with face to face sessions it will take time to build safety and trust with the therapist before you can go into some of the deeper feelings. Also for some feelings it may be necessary for you to attend the centre in order to feel safe enough to proceed.
Please contact us to discuss if this is a possible option for you.
