Events, Workshops & Groups
We run regular workshops, events and groups for adults, young people and children. They all have a therapeutic element and are often running because we have noticed a need for the group or event to be running. If you would like to run an event with us, for our team or for people in our Gloucestershire community, please get in touch.
Are you someone who is supporting others in your role? a therapist, counsellor, social worker, or carer? We enjoy putting on these relaxing days to support you to take time out to unwind and have the opportunity to socialise with other people. We like to add a creative element to the day, some time to chat and time to chill with a wonderful sound bath! These days are a must for self-care in our industry.
Lego 1-1 sessions
1-1 Therapeutic Lego Sessions are a therapy intervention, where there is building and talking happening together. For some, having the distraction of something like Lego and bricks can help them access thoughts, emotions and feelings whilst being occupied with the building and creating experience. These sessions are with a Qualified Counsellor or a Creative Mentor, depending upon the individuals needs.
Our monthly menopause group formed this year after getting many requests for support from women who dealing with symptoms of becoming perimenopausal, or going through the menopause. This is a group space, it is relaxed, no format, just people coming together and chatting about an experience they have in common. One of the benefits has been people sharing what has helped them, and for others it has been knowing they are not alone, and for some it has been the social element that has felt important.
Transgender Support group
This is a relaxed support group, connecting trans people together. The aim of the group is to combine a therapeutic environment with affirming support. It doesn't matter what stage someone is at to attend, whether that be stages of questioning, or if you are a while into the transitioning process People have said how the group reminds them that they are not alone, and that it is totally ok to be themselves.
Sound Bath Meditations
Sound baths are performed by a qualified sound therapist, using sacred instruments like the gong, crystal and Tibetan bowls and chimes. Each instrument is attuned, and chosen to support the body to relax and unwind. This is a great way to aid better sleep, reduce stress levels and help stuck emotions to re-surface. These sessions can be 1-1 or in groups, they are especially good for people who have a busy life and need the scheduled time to fit in some self care and mind space or for people suffering from long term pain and/or discomfort.
Art, Craft & Chat Group
Being creative can be a big stress reliever and creating together in a relaxed environment can really help to add a social element into something you really enjoy. These sessions can have a theme, and some are bring your own kit and be together as a group but doing your own thing. When expressing your interest for these groups, please state which you would like to know about.
The format is relaxed and facilitated by someone in our team who is training to support peoples mental health, and who loves crafting and being creative in general.
