Workshops and Groups
Learning in a group or community of like-minded people offers a rich and wonderful opportunity to connect and explore together. My workshops and groups are welcoming and facilitated spaces for people to learn new skills, share stories and experiences and to try out new things. Grounded firmly in authentic ongoing choice, participants notice and explore their edges, build trust, and find freedom and joy in allowing themselves to be seen and valued for who they are.
Workshops are a fun and facilitated opportunity to explore and learn with like-minded people. Based on a foundation of somatics with a trauma focus, I offer a welcoming space to learn new skills and deepen your awareness, while building connection and community. Workshops are around 3 hours in length and are offered intermittently throughout the year.
Run over several weeks, these closed groups are a in depth exploration designed to support growth in a committed supportive community of like-minded people. With consistent practice over time participants walk away with a solid grounding and skills that often accelerates awareness and healing. Number of participants is limited, and registration includes a short interview process.

Frequently Asked Questions about Workshops and Groups
Who are workshops and groups for?
Workshops and groups are for people over 18 years of age who have a genuine desire to learn and explore. Some groups are for specific target audience and some are inclusive of all people.
What are your standards regarding hygiene?
Recent experiences brought on by the global COVID-19 pandemic have brought changes to hygiene standards in group environments. I will have hand sanitiser available and wipe down surfaces prior during and after workshops and groups. I ask that participants who notice any signs of illness do not attend. I am happy to refund your payment in these circumstances.
Do I have a choice about participating in the activities?
Yes, absolutely, always. One of the most important things in all my workshops and groups is that you slow down, notice and choose from a place of authentic embodied consent. There are many ways to participate including sitting outside of the activity, watching with others permission, or taking a nap if you so choose! All these things count as participating. What is more important than doing everything is taking the time to notice what you really want and making that choice.
Do you cater for differing levels of physical ability?
I do my best to ensure all activities are accessible to everyone regardless of physical abilities. Please feel free to let me know before a workshop or group, the best way I can support you in this regard.
What should I bring with me?
Generally, it is useful to bring a water bottle, and a cushion or yoga mat. I usually send out a list of things to bring prior to the workshop, but if in doubt these are the basics.
Will there be food and drinks available?
It depends on the length of the workshop or group. This will be specified in information sent out to you prior to gathering. If you have dietary requirements, please let me know before the day of the event.
This is my first time attending anything like this. Is it for me?
Pretty much everyone who has ever stepped foot inside a workshop or group of this nature has felt some sense of initial nervousness or fear (me included!). It is normal, even I would say healthy to feel this way. My workshops and groups are created and facilitated in a way that gently supports you to go at your own pace with never an expectation to do anything you do not want to do. I am constantly humbled by the calibre and integrity of people who chose to come along and their capacity to trust, welcome and support each other in the space.
Can I bring my baby with me?
Babes in arms who are not mobile are welcome to come along with you to workshops and groups. I will do my best to support you to feel comfortable to participate while also caring for your baby’s needs and being respectful of the needs of the group. I will do my best to schedule group activities around the needs of breastfeeding parents throughout longer workshops and groups.
