We recognise that the last 12 months have been challenging for therapists many of whom have been called upon to work longer hours and to support clients with the global pandemic. These sessions are designed to specifically support therapists (including therapists in training) who may struggle to make space for their own wellbeing but recognise the importance of prioritising themselves.
The sessions will focus on wellbeing through art, yoga, dance, meditation, music and other topics. These sessions are for you if:
- You can attend at lunchtime.
- Have your clinical work at either end of the day.
- May be starting to question emotional burnout.
- Want to focus on self-care in a group with other practitioners.
- Want to have a relaxing session in the middle of your working day.
All sessions will be on Zoom. You will need too WiFi with stable access to participate.
September Session - Wednesday 22nd September 12am-1 pm - Music and the wellbeing of the therapist with Stephen Gross
We all know how important self-care is for therapists, and it has been particularly challenging over the last year. Music is a major source of regeneration and relevant to our therapeutic work – as therapists we deal in words and music speaks in a different tongue.
This session will be a chance to explore the regenerative power of music, appreciate the accessibility of music and the significance of self care for therapists as well as consider some of the various ways in being involved in music.
