‘Improving Communication through Touch with Children and Adults who have Additional Needs’
This course addresses the importance and progressiveness of working with Touch as a way of communicating understanding, safety and respite from a foundation of affection and sensitive caring to those who have additional learning needs including autism.
During this one day experience you will also learn the power of touch when it is connected to the heart.
The aims of the day are to give you a good grounding in working with the Sense of Touch as well as a springboard into creative techniques for building trust and relationship, for easing anxiety and developing a sense of joy. This grounding can be implemented into your work with both children and adults who have additional learning needs.

‘Reflecting Movements for Counsellors ’
This one day course will look at the ways, as a counsellor, you can be informed and learn how to draw on the body intelligence that resonates from within as you work with your clients as well as offers a respite for tuning in to yourself.
There will be an exploration through movement, listening to and following breath / trusting your senses / using visualisation as an aid to deeper awareness and body-mind wisdom.
The aims of this day are to open up a curiosity into using your body as you work with clients and to develop more of a reflective practice where you can explore and develop feelings, emotions and insights as well as identify your strengths and how you would like to develop as a practitioner.
Anxiety can be debilitating and start to take over your day to day living. It can cause panic and cause a person to isolate themselves without any hope of finding help or resources to integrate into their life. This one day course will look at what it is and where it is located in your mind and in your body.
To give you solid guidance through creative means such as mindful movement and art exercises that can highlight a deeper level of understanding and give you the tools necessary to not only manage but perhaps search for ways to resolve this stress you are carrying within you.
You will find a routine that can work for you personally and one where you open up your awareness to the mind-body connection and allow this relationship to work holistically and organically for you in your life. This old idea of one type of medicine fits all no longer has any credibility, and one persons anxiety is completely different to another's. Also, it is when you allow your mind and body to communicate that healing happens.
