Creative Mind Space;
Creative Mind Space is the place from which creativity springs. Working with Debbie Friedman I offer workshops and courses that connect people with this place in order to enhance and refresh their creative potential.
Past events are often lived on in the present through thoughts, feelings and physical responses. Attending to these can allow us to revisit events with a different eye, thereby creating new and more satisfactory resolutions to dilemmas and difficulties. In this way we can broaden our options, free up our energy, and become more available to ourselves and others.
Style of Working
My approach is relational and creative. I make the assumption that we are each experts on ourselves and given the right environment are able to make use of our expertise. I invite people to pay attention to their emotional feelings and body sensations, to become aware of their strengths, limitations and personal resources. Sometimes I suggest exploration aimed at heightening awareness.
Areas of Work
Personal development, life change loneliness, relationships dynamics, and family difficulties, depression, bereavement, stress, trauma, anxiety, eating disorders, living more easily with past events, difficult decisions, OCD, grief.
