The way we develop as counsellors and therapists can be influenced by many things, but sometimes a book, lecture, poem or conversation can have a particular impact. Following in the footsteps of a well-known radio programme, we have invited a psychotherapist of considerable experience and standing, and familiar to many of us at Birkbeck, to be our first ‘castaway’, and to choose which of her favourite books, papers or other literary pieces she would take with her to a desert island.
About the Speaker

She is a tutor on the MSc in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy at Birkbeck. Liz has a longstanding interest in supervision.

Paul Terry will introduce our Castaway. During the evening, we will find out more about the path of Liz’s career in psychotherapy, and discuss with her the various people and writings which have influenced her.
