Introduction to Narrative Therapy (3 full days)
We all have stories to tell. Yet some of these stories are problem saturated and bring us to a sense of hopelessness. Narrative Therapy allows us to re-story, using the points of optimism and hope into a new story that empowers us. Learn how to develop the skills to make this therapeutic practice possible in this 3 day workshop.
Grief Counselling Skills (1 day)
Not just the death of loved ones but the end of a relationship are covered in this innovative Counselling workshop. Led by Joseph John , a seasoned therapist with vast experience, you will learn afresh new practices and perspectives. Come with a case study to share.
Many of us feel we live divided lives, as parents and having a professional portfolio or as professionals and then having to switch roles when needed. How do we ascertain who we really are? These 2 full day retreats will give you a chance to examine and rediscover your authentic self in a safe space.
Teaching and Leading from Within (2 full days)
As roles in education become increasingly complex and demanding, Teaching and Leading from Within responds to the genuine need for experiences that support resilience and well-being so educators can continue to grow, care, take risks and give their best as teachers and leaders. This professional development program is based on the approach of the Center for Courage & Renewal and Parker J. Palmer, author of the influential book, The Courage to Teach. Rather than going straight to the ‘what’ or ‘how’ of education, this work turns attention to the ‘who’, recognising that good teaching and leadership cannot be reduced to technique but come from our identity and integrity: from bringing who we really are to what we do.
Whether you are new to leadership or an established leader, there cannot be a denial of the need for a leader to be authentic and compassionate with those whom he/she has an influence over. How do we reconcile these 2 traits as well as others without losing our human persona? These 2 days will allow you to examine leadership in the light of you as a person in a safe environment
