Writing for Wellbeing for those in the Caring Professions

Time:  11:00-13:00PM maximum 8 places in total available per workshop (the group will only run with a minimum of 2 participants; if you are the only person books, you will be offered the option of a refund of Storied Selves fees (less eventbrite booking fees which are not refundable) OR a 1:1 session of 90 minutes on the same day of the workshop, for the fee you have paid for the group workshop. Full details on FAQ of website).

Where: Online (Zoom)

Cost: £35 full price, £25 undergraduate students/unwaged

Description:

Open to all who work with people in a therapeutic capacity professionally, including in all sectors of healthcare, social care, therapy counselling and voluntary sectors, those who are training in the caring professions, and all those who are involved in teaching and training them (including clinicians, academics and students at all levels).

The themes of this set of four workshops, are designed to allow you to explore creative and enjoyable ways of exploring and enhancing your wellbeing through creative self-expression, and reflection, through writing and group discussion. The focus in this type of writing (also known as therapeutic writing), is on the process of writing, more so than  on the final ‘product,’ in refreshing and liberating contrast to so much of our professional lives, which are often focussed on outcomes and productivity.I believe that this type of writing can provide an enjoyable adjunct to the mandatory reflective writing portfolios many of us are obliged to maintain at work.

My workshops provide a supportive,nurturing and confidential space, to engage in a range of  enjoyable writing activities, using a blend of creative, expressive and reflective writing approaches, including poetry, fiction, quotes, images and other mixed media, as ‘writing prompts’; participants are then invited to share- extracts of their writing and/or reflections on the writing process and/or theme of the workshop, but are not obligated to so, and are certainly and not coerced to share anything unless they feel comfortable to do so.

No formal creative or other writing experience is needed, just a willingness to give writing a go!

One day you finally knew

What you had to do, and began

                  --Mary Oliver

Come along on an adventure and deepen your writing practice in these two 4-week Writing for Wellbeing workshops.  
Using literature as our inspiration, and the hero’s quest as our map, we will engage imaginatively with archetypal narratives and characters to reconsider our own stories—as a route to self-discovery.

In this supportive, confidential space, you will have the opportunity to share your writing, though you are never obligated to do so, as well as reflect on others’ writing.

No formal experience or preparation is needed, just a willingness to give writing a go! Simply bring a desire to share, reflect and experiment with words (and paper and pen).

Date: Saturday, 12th February 2022

Cost: £50 - Booking through Lydia Noor This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Description: 

For those of us who choose to take on a caring role either professionally or within a private capacity, there is often an emotional toll which we are sometimes not fully aware of. To be available for others, we need to develop a certain psychological robustness. We need to take care of ourselves. If we are shredded, then we are no use to our clients or those we support.

Exploring and nourishing our creative spirit can be part of our self care and creative writing for wellbeing one route into being more attentive to our needs and providing for them.

Through some gentle facilitated writing prompts, this workshop offers the opportunity to discover what creative writing for wellbeing might bring us. It is suitable for those who are new to this approach, as well as those who have some experience and want to go further. We all have a creative self, all it needs to flourish is time, space and permission. This workshop will offer ways of encouraging it to breathe. The focus of our time together will be on the process rather than the product, therefore, participants won’t be asked to share their work.

Nourishing the Creative Self: Sustenance for the Journey is a creative workshop organised by NESTT. It is aimed at therapists, those who work in the caring professionals and also those who have chosen to take on a caring role for a member of the family.
