Stand up for your Needs: Create your own manifesto –  Saturday 13 April 2019

Stand up for your own needs Sarah Tuckett Psychotherapy and Counselling

Are your needs being met?   Or do you put others needs before your own?  Do you even know what your own needs are?

Do you go along with what others want for fear of asking too much/being ridiculed or rejected?

Do  you fear being labelled “needy” if you stand up for what you want?

Do you feel uncomfortable reaching out for help?

If you’ve answered yes to any of the above I want to tell you that you’re not alone.  But why do we do this?  Let’s find out together.  Let’s find a way you can stand up for what you need.

What you’ll get out of this workshop

We all have our own needs and I’m here to tell you that you deserve to have them met.  (Unless of course you’re demanding outrageous Trumpesque things).

But here’s the thing.  If you don’t make them a priority, then other things/other people’s needs are going to get ahead of yours in the queue.   So let’s find out what’s stopping you.

We’ll explore a teensy bit of developmental psychology and apply it to your own situation, to help you understand why you do what you do.

We’ll also use your body as a guide, helping you track sensations, thoughts and emotions.

We’ll use grounding techniques, breathing and  posture to help you feel more personal strength, so that you can stand up for what you need out of life.

Details:

Time: 2-5pm on Saturday 13 April 2019 (please arrive at 13.45’ish for a  2pm start)

Investment:  Early Bird $60 until 6pm Weds 10 April. $75 thereafter.

Venue:  My studio in Kelvin Grove. The number of attendees will be capped at 6 for our comfort.

Accessibility:  Please note that I do not have wheelchair access to my home.

Transport:   Street parking is available (please park mindfully for my neighbours). Bicycles are welcome in the back garden. Plenty of public transport (buses) to Kelvin Grove.

Refreshments: Tea  or cooling drinks and a healthy snack will be provided during the workshop.

Wear: comfortable clothes you can move in. We will be moving around.  Please think “comfort” rather than “fabulous” (your inner fabulous will shine through anyway).

Bring:   an open heart.

This workshop is for:

People over the age of 18.  It is for my current clients, previous clients and those of you that I’ve not yet had the pleasure of meeting.

This workshop will involve some gentle and dynamic movement since this is a body-centred workshop.  Some grounding, stretching, breathing and some movements to process your feelings.

It is your choice to move as much or as little as you want.  For example, I have clients with shoulder, knee and hip replacements who work within their own limit and adapt movements to suit their own body (or just don’t do that particular movement).

Please call me for an over-the-phone interview to check that this workshop is suitable for you.  (Group work is not for everyone.)  In some cases it might be better to come and see me for 1:1 attention.  To book to see me you can either book via my online calendar or call me on 0450 22 00 59.

How to Book:

Call or SMS me on 0450 22 00 59 (I can take credit cards over the phone or i can give you the details for an internet transfer)

Connection, intimacy and longing – Saturday 22 June 2019

How do you find connection with others?

How easy is it for you to connect with other people?    Do you feel a lack of connection?   How easy is it for you to make friends?  How easy is it for you to speak your mind?   Does social media make you feel isolated or more connected?

Do you long for intimacy but find it terrifying?

On the other side of your fear lies your greatness - work with Sarah Tuckett Body Psychotherapy and Counselling North Brisbane

What you’ll get out of this workshop

In this workshop we will explore what connection was like in your family of origin and how this has impacted you as an adult.

We’ll bring to consciousness the patterns you might be following in your adult life that unconsciously mimic what you saw growing up.

We’ll look at what it’s like for you to connect with others.  Do you crave it?  Or do you prefer quiet time on your own?

What is it  like for you  to be listened to?  And to listen to others?

We’ll investigate how you hold yourself back from speaking out and we’ll look at your personal boundaries in relationships with others.

We’ll see how you are going to be more connected in your life.  How you can get more out of your life.

We will also explore your personal concept of intimacy. What it means for you, and how you can get more of this in your life.

Body psychotherapy is a body-centred practice so we’ll be exploring how these concepts make you feel in your body, where you might be holding tension, and how you might be able to let some of this go.

Connected hands

This workshop is for:

Anyone over 18.  It is for males and females.  My current clients, previous clients and those of you that I’ve not yet had the pleasure of meeting.

This workshop will involve some gentle and dynamic movement since this is a body-centred workshop.  Some grounding, stretching, breathing and some movements to process your negative and positive intent toward connection.

It is your choice to move as much or as little as you want.  For example, I have clients with shoulder, knee and hip replacements who work within their own limit and adapt movements to suit their own body (or just don’t do that particular movement).

This workshop is probably not for you if you have just gone through a recent breakup or bereavement.  In this case it would be better to come and see me for 1:1 attention.  To book to see me you can either book via my online calendar or call me on 0450 22 00 59.

Embody your desires: a body-centred approach to your dreams and goals – Sat 19 Oct 2019

Learn how to embody your desires and dreams with Sarah Tuckett Psychotherapy and Counselling Kelvin Grove North Brisbane

What stops you from achieving your dreams? Chances are that a large part of the roadblock is actually you.  It’s an inside job…

The thing we long for is often the thing we fear the most.

But there are still three months left of this year and there is still time to take action.  Would you like to try a different way of thinking and taking action on your dreams and desires?

What you’ll get out of this workshop

First of all I’ll lead you through some gentle movement and breathing to get you grounded and reconnected with your body – so that you are working with your innate sense of knowing that comes from your ‘gut’/body rather than just your little grey cells.

First we’ll define your values and your goals so that you can choose to behave in ways that take you towards the life that you want to live.

We will then translate your goals into feelings. You will work out how you want to feel if you were living according to those values and goals.

We’ll distill it down into a few key adjectives that really resonate with you.  Words that really speak to YOU.

We’ll then take your own words and anchor them in your body with a bit more dynamic breath work and movement.  You will EMBODY these words so that you know this feeling with your whole being.  

And when you’re on your journey you can check in with yourself

“Will this action/choice lead me closer to my desired feeling or away?”

Embody your desires for 2018 with Sarah Tuckett Psychotherapy and Counselling North Brisbane

You will also have the opportunity to explore any unconscious beliefs and thoughts that are sabotaging your progress towards these desired feelings.

We’ll bring to consciousness your negative intent – the part of you that secretly holds yourself back – probably because it’s safer…  but it’s also keeping you ‘small’. 

Sometimes the thing that is holding you back from achieving your dreams is fear.  And perhaps, just perhaps, there is no longer any need for you to fear.  

Once again we will embody this, so that you can know it with your whole being.

We’ll finish up the day with some relaxation so that your body can integrate all it has learned.

Happy feet
