Introduction to Mindfulness - led by Julie Bentley

What Mindfulness is (and isn't) about. Simple techniques that can be incorporated into daily mindfulness practice. Experience a guided meditation (maximum five minutes).  


Exploring using images - led by Sue Nyirenda

Sue has developed a pack of photographs (Lovelli Therapy Cards) to use with clients and is keen to use images in her counselling work. In this taster workshop you can experience the power of this work.

Max participants - six

2.40pm & 4pm

Bereavement Support - led by Rosemarie Savage

Support for the bereaved and those supporting them

Together we'll look at ideas for practical support in the immediate days after losing someone. Then move on to coping skills and keeping the memory of a loved one whilst growing your life to fill the emptiness.


Anxiety- body mapping - led by Emily Russell

This taster workshop will help you to identify the ways in which Anxiety impacts upon your body. The workshop will then briefly introduce you to a few self-help interventions which you can try out to help manage and reduce your symptoms.

This is a great game to help everyone learn how to get better at reading emotions in other people.
