Workshop Details 

In this workshop, Emma and Karin have a conversation about how they became authors, what led them to choose the topics they wrote about, and how you can do the same.

They’ll talk about the process of writing, and then publishing their books. Both have used very different paths to publishing.

You can also “pick” the authors’ brains about what they found easy, hard, enjoyable and not so enjoyable, and what has come from their writing career alongside their psychotherapy and supervision work.

Get a “behind the scenes” look at the book writing process, from psychotherapists like you.

Find out how they made it happen and ask your questions about the processes involved in writing and publishing a book.

Two Psychotherapist Writers in Conversation with Karin Brauner and Emma Redfern


Emma Redfern

Emma Redfern has been a psychotherapist for 20 years. Her initial training was Humanistic Integrative. However, over the years, she has become more specialist and considers herself a trauma therapist, having trained in EMDR (Eye Movement, Desensitization and Reprocessing) and IFS (Internal Family Systems Therapy). She now works solely online in private or independent practice.

She began transitioning to becoming a supervisor in 2010 and was certified by BACP in 2014. After completing all 3 levels of IFS training, she began offering IFS supervision and became an Approved IFS Clinical Consultant in January of 2020.

The idea that she could produce a book on IFS supervision came to her in January of 2019 and the multi-author book Internal Family Systems Therapy: Supervision and Consultation was published in August 2022. When the pandemic lockdown hit in 2020, she used the space this provided to begin writing a second book Transitioning to Internal Family Systems Therapy: A Companion for Therapists and Practitioners which was completed in the summer of 2022 and published in April 2023. Both books are published by Routledge.

Emma has another multi-author book scheduled for publication later this year.

Karin Brauner

Karin Brauner is a twice published author, a bilingual coach/counsellor/psychotherapist, as well as a supervisor in private practice. She trained in Guatemala and in Brighton, England. Karin has always been interested in many areas, which focus on her training as a therapist, but also her passion for writing and IT. These have led her to have a variety of services and product offerings, which she keeps adding to. These include social media marketing and content creation, as well as website support, tutoring, academic support, and other areas.

Karin is passionate about everything she does, and she enjoys seeing her colleagues and clients thrive in their work and lives. This is why she’s offering these workshops (and other courses to come in the near future). She enjoys supporting people be the best they can be, meeting them right where they are, and together figuring out what the best way forward is.

Marketing on social media became a focus of Karin’s back in 2017, when she started blogging. This propelled her practice into moving from 2-4 clients, to a full client list, followed by supervisees and now coaching clients as well. This means she can now offer the learning she’s done in the past few years, to practitioners starting their practices or thinking of growing their practices but needing the practical support to do so.

That’s what Karin offers – practical support to get you on the right track to building a successful business (whatever that means to each one of us individually).
