Reflective writing for self development.
Writing can awaken our unique richness and strength. I invite you to join my facilitated, 8 week reflective writing group as part of your journey. No writing experience is required for this course which nurtures you as an individual. This space is both creative and contained. Through a series of short writing exercises we explore experiences and hopes, and enhance belief in ourselves. It is open to any who are interested in using facilitated writing activities to tap into their potential. This small group will consist of just 6 writers to enable each participant fuller exploration time. As an experienced therapist, I offer a uniquely powerful space for reflection. I work from a belief that a more choiceful future arises from deeper understanding. This group provides a safe space alongside a supportive other to explore what concerns you. Bring something to write with and on. Bring what is on your mind. Most of all - bring yourself, just as you are. Secure your place by emailing me to arrange full payment: £72 (or £48 with a karma card). 1 week free for bookings completed before August 27th.

What we're about

Writing is a supportive tool, accessible to all. It can help us to understand past events, to explore our current reactions and to help visualise our futures. Come and try this nurturing, informal reflective writing group. I keep numbers small so that all can experience time to share and explore. All members of the group are supported to write at their own level and depth; no writing experience is necessary. Each person's focus for exploration can be accommodated. Come along to this safe space to explore and re- experience yourself.

Testimonial from one regular writer: Writing with Maura on a weekly basis in the last couple of months has been a constant surprise. A surprise in what aspects of my own patterns I uncover that I didn't see before, and a surprise of what this seemingly simple tool has to offer. We wrote from ever changing perspectives, using new techniques, sometimes engaging with other forms of art, helping bring out deeper and deeper insights about the roads we're each travelling on. On the other hand, the crucial stable point is Maura's attention. She is fully there in the sessions, cares, and remembers our progress, which helps a lot in putting the journey in perspective. This simple, pure method of writing with her has been a weekly source of reflection and a support in going forward, which I'm thankful for, and will continue to take part in.

Bring something to write with and on. Bring what is on your mind. Primarily- bring yourself, just as you are.

This group runs for an hour and a half, Mondays from 3pm, at the About Balance Centre, 20-22 Gloucester Place BN1 4AA. Each writer pays £9.00 a week (or £7 if you hold the centre's loyalty card- a 'karma card').

The next closed 10 week block starts 10/09/18. Secure your place as 1 of the 6 writers for the next block of sessions by emailing me to arrange making a full payment: £90 or £70 with a karma card.

I am offering an early bird discount for payments received before August 27th, with the offer being 1 week free.
