Designed to help people from diverse backgrounds who have experienced difficult life circumstances. These workshops aim to provide participants with the skills necessary to restore self-confidence, rebuild relationships and to make plans.
To be heard is a fundamental need in most people, but often we express ourselves in a way which alienates others. These interactive group workshops use an approach to communication that gives participants the tools to express their needs in a non-violent way. We focus on re-framing how they express themselves and hear others. So instead of their responses being habitual or automatic, they start to react from a place of awareness. The workshops are challenging, inspirational and engaging.
