Heike's workshop series was wonderful! Through clear explanations and carefully and methodically exploring processwork approaches as a group, I gained a greater understanding of how to map and follow a client's process. Heike creates a warm and accepting space for all students to have a go at deepening their knowledge through asking and answering questions. I feel more confident in working with clients as a result of this training and I hope to study with Heike again in the future. 
— Beth M
Heike has an incredible way of articulating and breaking down Process Work into bite size chunks that are digestible. I have noticed a HUGE difference in the way I practice since doing these workshops. I am able to understand and then integrate different pieces of the Process structure to my sessions with clients and I feel that after each workshop I have something to focus on to get more attuned to this work. I can't express my gratitude enough for Heike. She is gentle, soft, caring and incredibly knowledgeable. I love how authentic she is and true to herself. 
— Natalie F
I highly recommend training and working with Heike, she has a gift for putting concepts into simple terms, and has made me a much better practitioner due to her approach to transferring knowledge. Her warmth, combined with her workshop structure which provides for practice and mastery, is magical! Heike is a gifted teacher, mentor and Therapist!

What will we cover?

1. Mapping a Process: 
Building Blocks

The ‘building blocks’ used to map a process: signals, channels, dreamdoors, the process structure (primary and secondary process), the awareness continuum and the levels of reality.

2. Unfolding a Process: Overview

Skills of unfolding a process - finding and choosing a dreamdoor, amplification skills (with particular focus on the language of the dreaming), and following feedback. How the building blocks and skills fit into a whole Processwork session

3. Unfolding a Process: Deep Dive

Deepen and practice our skills of unfolding a process. After a review of all the theory to date, we will discuss and watch demonstrations of the skills of amplifying by each channel

4. Working with Body Symptoms

Applying our learning about mapping and unfolding a process to working with Body Symptoms. Body Symptoms are a great place to start to apply this knowledge as they have a simpler process structure than general processes.

5. Working with Edges

Working with edges - the stages of edges in unfolding a process, how to recognize edges, and how to work with edges, drawing on material from Julie Diamond and Caroline Spark’s book, “A Path Made by Walking”.

6. From Start to Finish: a Complete Processwork Session

The final class brings everything together to study a complete Process Work session from start to finish with a particular focus on the beginning and the end, while integrating our learning about the “middle”. We’ll talk about metaskills and learn tips and tricks for more beginning therapists.  

Learn in community

The series was fun, educational and gave me insights into myself, I felt free to be authentic and grow as we worked together as a group. James S

What to expect in each workshop

Check-in – Each workshop starts with a check-in, creating an intimate container to support a rich and safe learning environment.

Innerwork Exercise
– An experiential innerwork exercise follows, in which Processwork concepts are put into practice, and participants get to work on anything that they may need support or insights about.

– Concepts of the day are broken down into simple, digestible chunks that clearly link together and build on each other. This is accompanied by a powerpoint presentation which provides a clear structure for the theory, and visuals to support the concepts being discussed.

Break – 20-30 minutes

Practical Component – One of the following:
  • A demonstration with a discussion about the structure and interventions at the end
  • A ‘slow motion demonstration’ with one or more discussion breaks about the structure and interventions
  • A ‘slow motion session’, in which participants take turns to work for 3-5min, with discussions
  • Small group break outs - dyads or triads
  • Video study of a demonstration from a previous workshop.

Wrap Up
– Each workshop finishes with a wrap up to allow you to claim and integrate your learning.

Heike Hamann

Heike works in private practice as a psychotherapist and loves teaching Process Work to advanced students, recent graduates and therapists beginning in private practice. She is constantly astounded and amazed by the magic and deep transformation that happens when people’s processes are lovingly and attentively followed, and the depth of wisdom each of us has is accessed.  

She has a passion for really breaking down the steps involved in following process down to micro-steps, and teaching this in a very linear, progressive fashion, where concepts build slowly upon each other. She is gifted in creating a learning environment that is warm, intimate, supportive and playful – all questions are encouraged and welcomed, as is the sharing of experiences. The testimonials she has received speak to this.

She started her professional life as a mechanical engineer, before discovering and falling in love with Process Work in the mid 1990’s. She started her formal studies with ANZPOP in Australia, and finished them at PWI in Portland, graduating from the Master of Arts in Conflict Facilitation and Organisational Change (MACFOC) in 2008 and then becoming a Diplomate and completing her Master of Arts in Process Work (MAPW) in 2010.

Her Master’s theses were “What is Organisational Change from a Process Work Perspective?” and “Dealing with Fear in Paragliding”. Heike has been on the IAPOP (International Association of Process Oriented Psychology) Board for 9 years and has been on Staff for numerous Worldwork conferences. She started teaching Process Work at the Metavision Institute, in Australia.

Before working in private practice and teaching she worked for a number of decades as a Management Consultant all over Australia and the world, with small and large organisations including small businesses and multinationals, and has experience working in the private and public sectors. Her work included Leadership Coaching, Organisational Development Consulting and she has extensive experience as a Senior Project Manager and Change Manager, with a track record of successfully delivering complex business and transformation projects. She ended this part of her career with a deeply fulfilling 6-month contract in Zambia, back on the continent of her birth.  

Connection is important to Heike. Connection to the Divine, to Herself and herself, to Nature, to friends and family and to community. These days she loves having spaciousness in her life, which facilitates this Connection. She enjoys gardening, surfing, bike riding, cooking and loves sailing with humpback whales.
