Developing Intimacy in Relationships

With Joanne Collins

10th February 2018

North London Group Therapy, 9 Manor Gardens, London N7 6LA

Often intimacy and sex become confused. There is a connection between the two ideas however we can be intimate without having sex and we can have sex without intimacy. The terms can be mutually exclusive. Intimacy can culminate in sex but it can also result in a deeper relationship between self and other.

In this seminar we want to think about:

• What is intimacy?

• How might it offer us?

• How do we establish it?

• How do we cultivate it?


Who should attend the workshop?

Those who want to benefit from the knowledge within The Black, African & Asian Therapy Network, who are from African, Asian and Caribbean heritages and who want to engage proactively and consciously in their psychological lives. This is a Community Connect Event.
