College of Registered Psychotherapists competencies addressed:

1.4 Integrate awareness of self in relation to professional role.

3.3 Maintain self-care and level of health necessary for responsible therapy.

Join me for a monthly 2-hour self-care workshop series for therapists and helping professionals. Each session we will explore a different self-care themed art project (see website for details). The format of this monthly workshop is one of prevention, self-discovery and exploration through the arts but is not art therapy. Participants are encouraged to take any personal issues that arise in workshops sessions to their therapist. Please note that this workshop is not a supervision group.
