Support your team’s wellbeing, with a creative workshop, suitable for organisations of all sizes.
We are all under more pressure than ever; modern life’s hectic pace is no doubt a contributing factor to workplace stress, and employee absenteeism. Introducing staff to mindfulness techniques and other self-care strategies can help to prevent burnout and manage stress
“Stress is among the top three causes of short- and long-term absence and is the primary cause of long-term absence in over a fifth of organisations”
(CIPD Survey Report May 2018)
I have designed 2 creative workshops that not only provide solutions to the above, but that are also engaging, fun experiences for your team. My workshops reduce stress and ignite imaginations – inspiring creative thinking in the process.
- Stress reduction / prevention
- Emotional resilience
- Healthy self-expression
- Positive shared experiences
- Creative thinking
- Personal reflection
- Tools for mental health
- Increased self esteem
- Sense of achievement
- Feeling valued
What’s more – my workshops are perfect for all levels of artistic ability; in fact artistic ability is definitely not required! Creativity is for everyone and you certainly can’t ‘do art wrong’. Both workshops are beautifully inclusive, and both suspend competitiveness. For most (if not all), this will create the breathing space that is so rarely found in today’s world.
“Rebecca was really inspiring and shared her passion. She made everyone relax and enjoy, with no pressure to be ‘good’.”

Workshop 1 – Team Mandala Creations
Working in teams of 4, colleagues will create a mandala together, working both as one, and by individual contribution. Participants will be able to unwind as this incredibly mindful practice unfolds in a circular, symmetrical design that is completely unique to each team. This exercise in shared ownership will result in a creation to be proud of.
Competitive tendencies can take their leave, as we follow the example of the Tibetan monks who work in unison, no member of the group can race ahead, or go off-piste. There is also an added ‘twist’ to the entire design process which engages mutual respect.
The process of mandala creation is highly effective for stress reduction, this workshop teaches an accessible mindfulness practice – a tool for everyone’s wellbeing tool-kit.
Workshop 2 – Abstract Painting for Stress Busting
Working as individuals, but alongside one another, participants of this workshop can connect with their playful side. They will be encouraged and supported to completely trust their instincts, playing with colour on a canvas board, and enjoying the realisation that you really can’t do art wrong!
Abstract painting is a great introduction to anyone who feels that art isn’t for them. Aside from the fact that it is the process and not the end result that matters in this workshop, abstract designs are subjective to the point that it is harder to be self-critical about the outcome than in fine art.
We will also explore the power of colour, another useful take-away aspect of the workshop. Participants will connect with how different colours impact them and how they can use this self-awareness in everyday life to support their wellbeing.
Both workshops can run as half day sessions, or as a full day with a second session, if space and numbers dictate. Abstract painting requires a space that can be easily cleaned (away from soft furnishings!), and with access to a sink suitable for washing painty hands and brushes.
All workshops will start with a short talk on the therapeutic benefits of creativity, and I am very happy to make myself available at the end for group discussion.

Susan, workshop attendee.
Embark on a journey of personal discovery, reconnect with yourself in order to be happier, and more fulfilled.
Together we will explore your goals, motivations, desires, patterns of behaviour and accompanying beliefs. Using a range of creative strategies I will encourage and support you to look inwards with absolute honesty and free from fear of any judgment, our sessions are confidential and I will ensure that you feel supported throughout.
Equipped with an improved 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 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.
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 along the way – self-discovery inevitably leads to us recognising our strengths, and this in itself is a significant personal development milestone.
