Workshops in 2018

Workshops coming up:

Have a peek at workshops that have already happened in 2017:

 


 

Saturday 10 Feb 2018:   Embody your desires for 2018: a body-centred approach to finding your desired state of being in 2018

 

How do you want to FEEL in 2018?  What held you back in 2017?

Would you like to try a different way of thinking about your year?

Embody your desires for 2018 with Sarah Tuckett Psychotherapy and Counselling

Do your resolutions usually fall by the wayside by the time Valentines Day comes around?  

The trouble with most resolutions is that they are intangible goals and they don’t encapsulate how you want to FEEL.  

They sometimes feel like a dull chore that you have to do against your will.  So it’s easy to conveniently forget them by the time February rolls around.

But there is a different way of looking at things…..  

 

Focusing on your personal values so that the goals are aligned with your life vision.  And then focusing on the feeling that you would have if you achieved that goal.

Feeling great

 

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 for 2018 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 in 2018 you can check in with yourself

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

“What can I do today/this week so that I feel …. [insert your desired feeling]?”

 

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

In the afternoon you’ll 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

Wrapping up 2017 – Saturday 2 Dec 2017 – 1/2 day workshop 1-4pm

Before we start looking to 2018,  let’s tie a ribbon on your year.  Recognising everything you’ve achieved in 2017 – and everything you haven’t (yet), and may be explore what held you back – wrapping it up so that you end the year well, ready to start 2018 with an open heart.

 

Wrapping up 2017 with Sarah Tuckett Psychotherapy and Counselling

 

What you’ll achieve in this workshop:

Before you start focusing on what you want to achieve in 2018, let’s show gratitude for all that you’ve achieved in 2017 – celebrating and releasing the year. 

We’ll explore what you’ve achieved and how you felt about 2017.  

We’ll look at everything you’ve done including the mistakes.  We’ll look at what you’ve learned and created as well as the things you’ve left behind. 

It’s sometimes easier to focus on what you haven’t achieved in 2017,  so if that’s the case we can investigate what’s held you back and see if we can open the floodgates for 2018.  

My background is in body psychotherapy,  so we’ll use a combination of mindfulness, movement and breathing to help get the synapses firing and the creative juices flowing.

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).

What the body tells us – (date tbc)

 

What the body tells us
“Dance of love” Painting by Leonid Afremov https://afremov.com/

Would you like to feel more alive?  More emotional freedom? Your body is a storehouse of the history of your life – your memories, your past feelings, trauma.  Your posture, how you move, the places you hold tension or pain, all give us clues about what has happened to you and how you’re dealing with it emotionally and psychologically.  

It also shows us where you might be blocking your life force. Blocking your ability to feel pleasure, or even to feel alive. Blocking your ability to move forwards with confidence in your life.

Find out what somatic psychotherapy tells us about your body and how your own body can guide you towards feeling more alive.

 

What you’ll get out of this workshop

In this workshop you will learn how to reconnect with your body and listen to the signs and signals it is sending you.

You will learn how the soft tissues of the body (muscles, fascia) have been moulded by your personality and your life history – we call this muscular armouring.

We’ll see how your childhood has influenced your body shape (as well as genetics, environment, nutrition).   This workshop is based on the work of  John Pierrakos, Alexander Lowen,  Willem Reich, Jon Dychtwald and Bessel van der Kolk.

We’ll look at bioenergetic breathing and movement techniques you can use to help yourself and bring back some “OH YEAH!” to your body. 

Body readings will be available for those who want one.

Details:

Time: 9.30am-4pm on Saturday (date tbc)  (please arrive at 9.15’ish for a 9.30am start)

Investment:  $120 ($50 deposit on booking required to hold your space).  ($95 Early Bird if paid in full by date tbc 2018).

Venue:  TBC

Parking:  . 

Refreshments: Tea  or cooling drinks and a healthy snack will be provided during the workshop. Lunch is not provided. There are lots of cafes just up the road in Margate and Redcliffe.

Stand up for your Needs: Create your own manifesto –  Saturday 17 June 2017

 

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.

Saturday 25 March 2017:  Connection

 

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?

 

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 where you might be acting with others in the way that you did with your family of origin.

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.

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.
