Pause for a moment …

Wake up to being alive and discover the joy of being present in your life.

There is objective, rational proof, through the research of Dr James Pennebaker, that writing expressively about meaningful life events, along with your emotions is of great personal benefit to both physical and mental health.

Come and engage in a warm, fun workshop to learn how you can begin building a personal relationship through journaling.

Learn how it helps to support you through  joy and success as well as through loss and trauma.

Discover how to manage the process in a safe and successful way to sustain the relationship.

Consider how sharing with supportive people can contribute to being heard and enable deeper connection to others.

Rob says:

“I don’t want to give too much away about the session, but its a unique opportunity to experience the findings of some American research and will be ideal for those who have the courage to savour an unforgettable experience.

Useful for anyone interested in personal development, the here and now, and really living. All participants must bring a pen, an open mind, a willingness to develop and a mobile phone.

I will supply letter paper, compassion and enthusiasm :-)”

Presentation: Brief Grief Therapy

Brief Grief TherapyDeath is a part of life and bereavement is universal.

For most of us we manage to find our way through our loss and pick up the pieces of our lives.

Sadly, some people get stuck in their grief with no way out with what they believe to be no way out.

In this workshop Harry Knox, NLP Trainer and Counselling Supervisor for CRUSE will teach you how to use the Brief Grief Therapy process he has developed to help people come out of the other side of their grief.

No one needs to mourn for 50 years like Queen Victoria, it is possible to help somebody grieve, mourn and come back to life without years of stuggle and suffering.

This workshop will be particularly relevant to counsellors or other members of the helping professionals who work with grieving people.

This is a workshop for professionals so you will need experience of counselling or therapeutic work to attend this workshop.
