The most creative act you will ever undertake is the act of creating yourself
Finding self through expressive arts
Coming home to yourself.
These workshops are appropriate for counsellors, teachers, social workers or anyone wishing to experience some personal development, at a deeper level, using Natalie Rogers’ Creative Connection model.
The use of a mixture of creative media is at the heart of each workshop and each theme focuses on a different type of media allowing for a deeper experience. No artistic expertise is required, just an open mind, a willingness to play, respecting and acceptance of your own and others emotions. All materials and refreshments included. CPD certificate will be issued.
Please contact me by email if you are interest in these workshops.
Expressive arts media
• Soft/oil pastels
• Authentic movement
• Natural materials
The Creative Connection involves moving between different sensory modalities through a sequence of expressive media and is designed to enable the person to take the exploration of their issues
deeper and wider.

After each workshop, I feel that I have made significant movements towards understanding and accepting who I am with compassion and love. You provided a safe and supportive environment to explore aspects of myself and who I am without judgement and with compassion.
