- Do you enjoy getting to know yourself at a deeper level?
- Are you interested in how the process of creative writing can help you access self-truths you may have buried or hidden from yourself?
- Would you welcome the chance to work in a small, supportive group with qualified counsellors as facilitators?
We are offering a series of Writing for Self Discovery workshops from a venue in North West London, easily accessibly by public transport.
You don’t need to be experienced or skilled in creative writing to take part. You just need to be open to engaging with a process as it unfolds.
The workshop will involve writing creatively in response to different prompts given by the facilitators. This can help you experience how writing can be used to give you new perspectives and improve your wellbeing. Everyone has a unique voice and stories to tell. We encourage creative ways to express this in a safe and friendly environment.
The course will be facilitated by qualified and BACP registered counsellors, Sarah Richings and Lucy Watt.
Participants who have attended earlier workshops are welcome to attend. There will be different themes and exercises.
This workshop is limited to 10 participants.
£45 for three hours.
Venue is disabled accessible for the first two workshops, including this one.
Please let us know of any other reasonable adjustments we can make to support you to be able to participate in the event.
Please bring a notebook and pen or pencil.
Although the workshop is being held in the Minster Centre, we do not have any connections with the Centre, and we trained at the Metanoia Institute.
