This workshop focusses on the concept of change in the self in relation to family estrangement
How can we grow, flourish and thrive, rather than merely survive? How we can invest time in ourselves to keep us moving in the right direction, whatever, wherever that may be?
This workshop encourages us as participants to explore what change would look like; what stops us from changing; what makes us struck; what is important in our lives; what is missing in our lives. As well as seeking to discover how flexible or rigid we are when it comes to our thoughts, feelings and actions.
Part of this session will allow time to explore our own approach to tackling our problems. We will explore the role of a detective and find out how we could some of their skills and methods and attitudes to help us with our own self-detective work.
What will the afternoon look like?
We will start with a 1.5 hour support group for you to share your family estrangement experiences. We will then move on to bite-sized therapeutic ideas, exercises, case studies and discussions - so that each participant has the opportunity to make connections with these concepts and apply them to their own lives and their own circumstances.
What if people judge me?
These workshops are informative and informal, respectful and non-judgmental. There is no right or wrong & there is nothing expected of you as a participant. They are designed for people who wish to: improve their wellbeing; increase their awareness; reflect on their pathway in life; and generally discover what makes them tick.
Do I need experience of therapy to take part?
To attend these workshops you do not need to be academically clever, nor do you need to have had 3 years of intensive therapy. Instead, curiosity and a willingness to try and be open and honest with your ‘self’ are the only reqirements.
