SELF CARE for PROFESSIONALS-Symbol Beads Workshop 16th Feb 2019

Using various mediums, this creative, therapeutic workshop invites you to choose and thread a series of symbols based on themes including personal resilience, cultural heritage, hopes and dreams as well as your growing edge and challenges.

Beginning with a guided meditation, you are then invited to choose and create beads to thread and tie together as a response to a series of questions designed to evoke the soul to speak. Through this deep therapeutic workshop the wearable and transportable symbols become a powerful positive reminder of your inner resources both personally and professionally when needed to assist with stress or to remind you to continue on your path to your joy and passion.


Who Should Attend? These workshops are open for those who are seeking self-care, personal and professional development.  If you are a student or professional Art Therapist, Counsellor, Social Worker or Mental Health Worker these 4 hour SELF CARE for PROFESSIONALS workshops are perfect to provide you with essential self-care, learn techniques to use with your clients and network with other professionals in a small group setting.

Contact Kerryn for terms of agreement details for the option for Group Supervision within this workshop.

Recognised by the Australian Counselling Association (ACA), when attending this workshop you receive Professional Development points towards your annual opd requirements.
