Experiential writing for well-being workshop in the New Forest
Experiential reflective writing workshop for continuing professional development and self-care.
Write your way to increased well-being, and find out about how expressive writing can become a useful tool in your client-work.
Whether seeking new perspectives on difficult issues, looking for creative tools in working with clients or wanting to unleash your own creative spirit, a developing body of research shows that writing is good for you!
Creative and expressive writing helps calm the mind and increases feelings of well-being. Many people have already discovered the power of literature and creative writing, especially when coping with loss, change, or other life-challenges.
Write your mind experiential workshops are held in a tranquil setting amongst beautiful gardens in Lyndhurst, and are run by counsellor and writing for well-being practitioner Jo Bisseker Barr to promote well-being, leading you through guided writing activities designed to explore yourself and your situations, to develop insight, resilience, and a sense of positive change.
No previous writing experience is needed, only a willingness to explore your creative self and potential in a nurturing and non-judgemental environment. There’s a satisfaction and thrill to creating something through putting words onto a page. You’ll experience that writing can be inspiring and even fun!
With nearly 20 years experience as a BACP accredited psychodynamic counsellor, Jo runs her practice as well as workshops from Lyndhurst. All refreshments, including lunch and home-made cakes are included.
Workshops can also be tailored to suit individual organisations or groups of people. They can be hosted in Lyndhurst, or at your venue.
