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.

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)
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (I will give you the details for an internet transfer); or
Ask me about it in your next session.
Feedback from the Feb 2017 workshop:

“I learnt that I am not alone in how I feel.”
“It got me to think about and challenge things on a deep level.”
“It was so expressive and really helped me to define my goals, feelings and what is holding me back.”
“The location. The size of the group. The focus/theme; worksheets and structure of the day. Supportive atmosphere.”
“It was a good balance of individual and group activities.”
