Group Wellbeing Workshops
Designed to equip particpants with accessible tools to quickly and easily de-stress, as well as to connect with the creative thought process.
Why might your group benefit from a creative workshop?
Creative activities are a highly effective way to process our emotions, and help relieve stress. Creativity is very freeing; as we fire up our imaginations, so do we decrease the levels of cortisol – the stress hormone. Not only does creativity support good brain health, it is a phenomenal stress-buster and can help us to re-frame our thoughts around challenges and obstacles.
My ‘Mandala Mindfulness’ workshops teach participants how to create their own beautiful mandala. Mandalas are a completely accessible way to enjoy art, and the way they are created focuses the mind in a highly beneficial way. People often surprise themselves, especially the people who believe they are “not artistic”.
Workshop can include:
- Introduction – The creative mind-set and how we can all access creative activities in our daily lives, to support wellbeing.
- Guided mindfulness exercise to help people relax in to the session and get the most out of their experience.
- How to create a mandala
- Mandala creation – time to have fun and create
- Close – sharing (for those who want to), conclusions, questions etc.
- Handouts include a mandala template and a meditation exercise to take away with the art.
If this is something you think your team would enjoy, please get in touch to discuss your requirements and we can create an experience that works for you.
I have over 15 years of experience coaching others to succeed. Now specialising in using creative strategies for personal exploration to improve wellbeing; I can help you to (re)connect with your authentic self, in order to live a more fulfilling and balanced life.
At some time or another we will all experience a sense of feeling ‘stuck’, often we are living out of alignment with our personal values. We might need support to reconnect with ourselves, in order to rediscover what our fundamental values are. By looking at the whole picture, we can ‘troubleshoot’, regain balance and move forwards.
If you are experiencing a loss of identity, or feeling ‘burnt out’ and anxious about the future, wellbeing coaching really can make a positive difference.
What happens during coaching sessions?
Together we will explore your goals, motivations, patterns of behaviour and accompanying beliefs. Using creative strategies I will support you to look inwards with absolute honesty and free from fear of any judgment, our sessions are absolutely confidential.
Equipped with an improving level of self-awareness and with tools that work for you, we will create a structure, with realistic short and long term time-bound goals that are set by/with you. Our regular sessions together will enable us to review progress, there is a ‘touch base’ structure for between sessions, as most people find that accountability is critical to success in many areas of their lives.
What is a ‘creative strategy’?
This is a visual tool, the one that we will use was designed by me and therefore is unique to my coaching. It has been inspired by both Eastern & Western approaches to wellness and by my love of nature. It is a ‘Wellbeing Sanctuary’, the unique design of which, will evolve with your sessions. Using a visual aid is a highly effective way to pinpoint and address the areas of our lives that need the most urgent attention.
Does coaching work for everyone?
It works best for those who fully commit to the process. Wellbeing coaching is a promise to yourself that requires honesty and commitment. Results will not be overnight, the climb always comes before the glorious views at the summit! However there are constant opportunities to experience a sense of satisfaction and success along the way. Self-discovery inevitably leads to us recognising our strengths, and this in itself is an empowering personal development milestone.

” The experience of working with you over the last few months has literally transformed my way of thinking about certain areas of my life and given me a much greater clarity and perspective. Using the creative processes to express my thoughts and feelings, I felt safe and the emotions that came up felt less scary/threatening and more manageable (also because of your supportive coaching!) I would highly recommend this kind of coaching for anyone who wants to work on themselves, or an area of their life they feel maybe confused about and any areas that are emotionally difficult or challenging. “
