Group Wellbeing Workshops 

Designed to equip participants 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, relieve stress, and support good mental health. Creativity is a phenomenal stress-buster and its therapeutic benefits can help us to re-frame our thoughts around challenges and obstacles.

My ‘Mindful Creativity’ workshops guide participants through an accessible way to enjoy art, focusing the mind in a highly beneficial way. People often surprise themselves, especially the people who believe they are “not artistic”.

Your workshop is shaped around the needs of your group, it can include:

  • Introduction – The creative mind-set and how we can all access creative activities in our lives, to support wellbeing and mental health.
  • Guided mindfulness exercise to help people relax in to the session and get the most out of their experience.
  • How to create a mandala, abstract art or mixed media artwork.
  • Creative time with on hand support for anyone who needs it.
  • Close: Sharing, conclusions, questions and useful take away thoughts.
  • Handouts can include a mandala template and a meditation exercise to take away with the artwork.

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.

 

 

Wellbeing Coaching

I have over 15 years experience coaching others to succeed. Now specialising in using creative strategies to improve wellbeing, I can support you to (re)connect with your authentic self, in order to live a more fulfilling and balanced life.

At some time in our lives most of us will find ourselves at an emotional crossroads, perhaps feeling stuck in a rut, emotionally burnt out, or anxious about our future. Often all three of these emotions are keeping each other company! We might have drifted in to a life that is out of alignment with our personal values, it is not unusual to need support to work through these feelings in order reconnect with ourselves. 

If you are experiencing a loss of direction and/or feeling anxious about the future, wellbeing coaching really can help you to understand yourself better. We all need a healthy level of self awareness, in order to make decisions that are in our best interest. 

What happens during coaching sessions?

 Together we will explore your motivations, patterns of behaviour and accompanying beliefs.  Using creative strategies I will support you to look inwards with absolute honesty so that you can start to recognise stress triggers and work on your coping mechanisms. 

Equipped with an improving level of self-awareness and with tools that work for you, we will start to evaluate your short and long-term goals. Our regular sessions together will enable us to review progress and celebrate your success along the way, as well as to work through any ‘bumps in the road’. 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 that supports the opening of a thought process – it does not require artistic skill. There are a wealth of therapeutic creative exercises that we will use; whatever you create at our sessions will be unique to you and to your experience. These exercises will offer an opportunity to evaluate thoughts and feelings and how they impact on behaviour.  

 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; there is always a climb before the glorious views of a 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 (not just our challenges), 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. “
