Presentations for the Autumn 2013 ChangeCamp

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.

Stress in the workplace is widespread. It is a major issue not just for employers but for many workers too.

It impacts on our performance at work and generally on our home life too as being able to switch off from work whilst spending time with friends and family is not always easy.

During this interactive session we will:

  • explore what stress is,

  • where it comes from, and

  • how to identify the warning signs.

We will also look at some simple strategies that can help us cope with work related stress.

This is a joint presentation by Aly and Caroline Malloy

Desserts anyone?

This session will look at comfort eating. During the session we’ll explore the physiological and psychological triggers that lead to comfort eating and how the response can be changed.

Over the years Anne has worked with many clients who comfort eat and helped them to stop and learn other ways to cope with negative emotions and situations.

She has researched the links between food and the impact that sugar, salt and fatty foods have on our brains and how we can become addicted to them.

So if you have ever turned to food when you feel down, stressed or just plain bored you might find this session helpful.
