What is a Dreamcatcher – a creative workshop?

A fun time for you to have more joy in life and increased happiness

Dreamcatcher is a relaxing yet reviving workshop using images that inspire you. These may be words or pictures – any image that you feel will bring you inspiration. We start with a blank slate – a piece of card, and add images to it that give a vision of your clear intention about where your life is and where you would like it to be. What might be significant is the things you chose to leave off. By doing this piece of art you have something to look at each day as a source of motivation and encouragement to yourself. It gives our brains clear limits

What matters now?
What do I want to bring into my world now?

The process of  creating your Dreamcatcher is that it is personal to you, it is a space of growth, healing ,vision and seeing this image helps you to find your dream. It is a very relaxing session working in a group in a very informal way and we get into pasting and images that envisage a bold future for yourself and channels your energies.

When life gets tough we have the ability to bounce back.
We all have it but need to nurture it and have it ready for the tough times.
This course asks how resilient you are and then checks which areas you need an extra layer of padding to bounce back.
We then talk about the signs – we either are or are not as resilient as we would like and develops strategies to grow stronger.
 
As Nietzche said:  What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger – or you might like the song (Katy Perry’s version).
Whatever you prefer, this two part workshop will definitely add to your resilience.

Choosing to do these will help with anxiety ,stress and depression and benefit your wellness and psychological well being. If you want to be part of a group that are learning these techniques then joining the group.

Life is a series of changes and at most times we go from one thing to the other with no difficulty. However, when changes are causing conflict within ourselves there are ways of breaking down those barriers in order to move forward. The course that Think Differently delivers is based on the best selling book: Who moved my cheese?. It brings together the characters in that book – two mice and two men, and looks at where you are and which character you identify with. Once you see that comparison, it is relatively easy to give you tools to manage change more effectively. The workshop is fun and experiential. It has been well received by staff and managers alike

Once again we take a look at what stress is and then look at how positive stress can be beneficial. It is only when our coping mechanisms fail that stress becomes a problem. This workshop helps you to audit your stress levels and manage the negative stress that can be disabling. Once the audits are completed we look at various ways we can mange stress so that we can feel positive about the pressure that everyday life throws at us, personally and professionally. It is a very interactive course and there is the opportunity to share and debate with fellow participants and exchange ideas.

Simply the best

“I have had the privilege of knowing and working with Maggy as a professional supervisor from her very beginning as a Counsellor, and so I have been able to view the development of her career throughout. 

She has always impressed me with her deeply caring approach to her clients, backed up by diligence and skill, self-motivated learning and a very high ethical standard. If a personal friend or member of my family were to need counselling, I would not hesitate to recommend Maggy’s care.

Mr Paul Hunt Clinical Psychologist

Increased sense of personal worth

“The benefits of supervision are well recognised to be an essential part of reflective therapy to ensure good practice for the counsellor. Margaret has not only been essential in ensuring that I have felt supported in this, but has provided emotional support as well as information and guidance that has greatly increased my sense of personal worth and I feel has benefitted my counselling work.”

Cath Thomas  practicing counsellor and supervisee

Highly recommended

“Thoughtful and professional delivery.

Excellent concise instruction as ever from a talented and insightful mentor.

Mindfulness allows me the opportunity to distract myself when I experience overwhelming anxiety.

Julia Ellis
