Description

WE ARE THE CREATIVE COUNSELLING MOVEMENT and we are passionate about bringing creative counselling interventions into mainstream models!

These creative therapeutic skills shares are being part funded as a kickstarter project by Facebook and rolled out across the UK as part of our Creative Counselling Movements "BIG RIPPLE PROJECT".

You are invited to explore creative counselling tools with other members of The Creative Counsellors Club (although this is also open to welcoming new members) and to bring your own creative materials and ideas to share with the group! These groups aim to:

INSPIRE you to feel more confident in your approach to working creatively in the counselling room

CONNECT you with more like-minded counsellors to network, collaborate and tackle counsellor isolation

WHAT IS A SKILLS SHARE? An opportunity to network and connect with other counsellors through a shared love for all things creative. A skilled facilitator will host the sessions around a creative intervention topic and you are encouraged to bring creative tools and ideas to share within the group to enable exploration and to build confidence within your client work.

ABOUT YOUR TAG TEAM FACILITATORS:

My name is Eilish Craig, I am based in Antrim & Belfast. I’m a fully qualified Integrative counsellor, and a member of the National Counselling Society holding Accredited registrant status.
Working Integratively means I use a variety of approaches. Every client Is different so my approach is tailored to suit each of their unique individual needs.
I put a special emphasis on the therapeutic relationship, to paraphrase Petruska Clarkson it is the medium upon which we, and our clients live, breathe and find our meaning.
I offer a warm, genuine and safe environment where my clients are heard and accepted in a non judgement way.
I have experience in working with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, self harm, identity issues, trauma, homelessness, asd/aspergers, bereavement, diagnosis, and those bereaved by suicide. I am trauma informed and have an interest in this area and plan to develop my skills and knowledge further in this area.
I like to use a variety of creative means in my approach to therapy and invite my clients to explore their creative side during our time together.
I am a facilitator of suicide prevention programme and deliver workshops to a variety of community groups, public and private sector. I am a Reiki practitioner holding level 1 & 2 certificates. I hope to further develop this aspect of my work as it compliments the therapeutic work so well.

My name is Claire Thompson, I am based in Belfast and Newtownabbey.
I work in an integrative way, which means I use theories and concepts
from different therapeutic models. I believe that as human beings we
are diverse and using a variety of strategies may be useful for
individuals to achieve their desired outcome.
I can, if required work creatively using art as part of my
integration. You may find this approach helpful if you find verbal
communication difficult. At the moment I am completing an MSc in Art
Psychotherapy and working with therapeutically using art with Primary
school children.
I work with children and adults with long term and short term goals.
As an adult with ASD I understand how alternatives to communication
such as art may be of benefit to those struggling to find the right
words.
