I have been around a good long time and bring my social work and counselling theory and lots of experience to my work, regularly reviewing and reading up on what’s new, and frequently updating my work. I enjoy chatting with new clients to design workshops just for them and the needs of their groups.
My workshops are coloured by my belief in Carl Rogers’ Person Centred Approach. Carl Rogers suggested that for every person (and so for every workshop participant), the feelings that seem most private, most personal and most incomprehensible to others tend to have the greatest resonance for others (and for colleagues learning alongside them in a workshop). This belief influences my bespoke team building events which can be fun and engaging, but also a safe space for openness and challenging where differences can be aired and worked through. I use Rogers’ Core Conditions to develop a safe working and learning environment in which this in-depth work becomes increasingly possible.
I use creativity a great deal in work of all kinds and above is a drumming circle with a small group.
