CreativeTherapyWorkshopsBy Women for Women: want to take part? Creative Therapy Workshops

FREE creative workshops for women aimed at developing and sharing strategies for self-expression using photography, drama, writing and other art forms.

The monthly workshops are self-referred and will engage with a person-centred approach. They are being offered to local women who identify as having been abused in any way. The workshops will be co-facilitated by two qualified teachers and a qualified counsellor, who will provide additional support for each session.

Note: These workshops are not for women who are in the midst of a difficult or dangerous abusive situation.

The workshops will start on Friday 27 May and will run for two and a half hours from 12.00pm-2.30pm.

The workshops will then take place on a Friday on a monthly basis from 12.00pm-2.30pm:

Friday 1 July from 12.00-2.30pm
Friday 29 July from 12.00-2.30pm
Friday 9 September from 12.o0-2.30pm
Friday 30 September from 12.00-2.30pm

Creative Therapy Workshops are underpinned by a belief that using a dynamic and flexible creative model, using the arts, developed with the input of the participants, can enhance and support a person’s well being and mental health. A further aim of the group is to support women through harnessing creativity and allowing for mutual support networks to evolve in a confidential, friendly and supportive environment.
