An opportunity to gain new insights & perspectives

"At the edge between the known and the unknown there is a fertile place, full of possibility. Playing at the end can lead us to experience fresh new learning, creativity, joy and wonder"

Steven D'Souza and Diana Renner

Creative techniques are a wonderful way of exploring ourselves, our thoughts, and our patterns. Enabling us to look more deeply and more intuitively into what has shaped our lives and what is getting in our way. 

When we are truly ‘lost for words’ using creative techniques to express what we mean provides a unique opportunity to make new associations, gain new perspectives and delve deeper into the heart of the matter. 

Discount Early Bird booking

All 3 workshops when purchased together are £250

Workshops booked individually are £98 each

Special 2 for 1 pricing available for Public Sector. 

These workshops are suitable for:

 

  • Individuals wanting to know more about themselves - what makes you tick,  what your beliefs and values are, where they came from and explore if they are still serving you well. 

  • Coaches, Counsellors or Therapists undergoing their training or fully qualified, who are wishing to explore how creative techniques unlock a deeper conversation with their clients.

  • Mindfulness, Yoga, Pilates and teachers in other affiliated fields who are engaged with developing the whole person.

For those of us in the coaching, counselling and therapy profession, they are a welcome addition to our tool-kit and one that Dr Pat Williams, co-founder of the ICF Core Competencies, calls an advanced skill, because, as he says  "it helps clients to get to the unconscious part without words getting in the way." 
 

Don't worry, you don't have to be 'creative' or be able to draw to get the benefit from these workshops!


It's about using alternative ways, other than the spoken word, to express what's going on for you - using colour, shapes, writing and other inspiration including the natural world to explore your thoughts and challenges and find a deeper understanding about yourself.

By experiencing each exercise, you will come to understand how the tools and techniques work and how powerful they can be in providing you, or your clients, with an opportunity to find new perspectives and gain new insights that help create a positive shift.
