Creative Tools to add to your Therapeutic Toolbox


6 Jul

10:00am - 4:00pm


NW Counselling Hub, Unit 10, Allenby Business Park, Crofton Road Lincoln LN3 4NL


A 100% experiential day from the moment the course begins! Discover why working creatively works for you and your clients.

Sarah’s workshop is 100% experiential, from the moment training begins! You will gain personal insight into your own creativity (or lack of!), and understand how to incorporate this you’re your counselling practice. You will not be watching Sarah present to a PowerPoint. Instead, she will be challenging you to think and work creatively, whilst linking theory to practice to unravel why and how this can help your clients.

The day will incorporate:

Creative introductions

How creative are you?

A range of creative exercise to use with clients (and to learn about self!)

Working with resistance to creativity and breaking down barriers

You will gain an understanding what working creatively feel like for your clients. Plus, you will learn so much about yourself that your own creativity on the day (or lack of!) will reveal. This workshop provides a fun and informative way of working creatively, aiding your professional and personal development, and adding tools to your therapeutic toolbox.
