Workshop: Using creative therapy to explore common issues

Our next workshop is Saturday 15th June and will be a day of learning how to use crafts to explore hidden issues

You will be drawing from your own lives and taking part in activities that encourage thinking, feeling, ideas and connections. We believe in learning by doing so the idea will be to try out these techniques on yourself first before using them with your clients. Our workshops are safe spaces and only one other attendee will see your work; however, there’s nothing to stop you from choosing material from a client’s life or a made up case study if you don’t want to use your own experiences.

We are going to explore your anger – for example, how it feels, what triggers it, what associations it has. We are going to think about the people in your life and the structure they form around you, each playing a role in the whole. And we are also going to do an exercise aimed at dealing with generalised anxiety, unpacking worries and setting goals.

We will provide all the materials you need and guide you through the activities, discussing their application and giving guidance on the use of such techniques with your clients – including options for when materials are restricted.

There will be opportunities to network with other counsellors from a variety of placements and practices and a lovely cold buffet lunch from M&S is included in the price. Get in touch if you’d like to discuss or want to book your place – we keep numbers small so everyone can get the most from the day.
