Presentation: Drawing Out The Child In You

Child drawingThis presentation is all about exploring your personality through simple drawing and writing exercises.

Using Star-Wave Drawing, a simple technique developed by an educational psychologist and family therapist you can draw out the child in you and explore what you learn through the lens of Transactional Analysis (a social psychology exploring relationship interactions).

By the end of the session you will know more about why daily or long term relationships work the way they do.

If you are interested in learning more about yourself and your relationships then all you will need to do is bring along your favourite pen.

No artistic ability is required.

Presentation: Building Boundaries By Saying No Nicely

BoundariesGood fences make good neighbours, good boundaries build good relationships

Mediators often describe themselves as breaking down walls and building bridges. So why do I think boundaries are important?

One of the most common causes of conflict is unclear boundaries or where someone has crossed a boundary.

Broken promises or unfulfilled expectations are examples of where a line has been crossed, knowingly or unknowingly. Many of these situations would not have occurred if people had “said no nicely early” in the relationship.

This practical session helps you explore your boundaries. Learn about how to set and communicate expectations clearly and how to handle yourself when boundaries are crossed or expectations are not met.

The Listening Space

Listening SpaceThis experiential session will introduce you to The Listening Space – a structured process in which one person facilitates another to explore an issue that is on their mind, using a combination of repeating back their words and a specific set of Clean questions. This could be anything from a problem they would like to gain clarity on to a creative idea they want to develop.

Clean questions can be used to focus on the metaphors that people use to express themselves. When this happens people experience being listened to at a very deep level and can be facilitated to make transformative and long-lasting changes.

Presentation: Small Steps to Big Change

Small StepsWhen we think of things that we want to change, we can get hung up with the final outcome which can be a good thing for some people, if they can remain motivated and move towards their outcome.

For some people the change from where they are now to where they want to be can seem so enormous, that the possibility of achieving the outcome can be too daunting to imagine and can be why they will avoid change or give up trying.

By breaking down the journey into small steps and removing obstacles whilst remaining motivated the outcome can be achieved.

During this session techniques will be used from EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) through demonstration and practice to find a way to remove blocks which are preventing you from making change and help you move towards your outcomes and goals.

No previous experience is necessary as full explanations and demonstration will be carried out

Presentation: Do You Eat Your Emotions?

Emotional EatingA Rough Guide to Emotional Eating and what we can do about it

Emotional Eating is quite simply, eating to supress or soothe negative emotions we experience.

Emotional Eating is a very common problem but only some of us that are aware that we do it and even fewer know what to do about it.

If you have trouble losing weight, put weight straight back on after dieting, crave certain foods and experience sudden hunger, you may be an emotional eater.

This presentation will be an overview about what emotional eating is, how we can identify it in ourselves and what strategies we can use to reduce it.
