Inner Child Therapeutic Workshops & Retreat
Inner Child – Healing & Recovery
Inner Child – Play, Create & Celebrate!
PLEASE NOTE – these inner child workshops are NOT intended, designed or available for counsellors or psychotherapists seeking further training or ‘continuing professional development’. Their presence in the group could adversely affect the experience of other attendees.
We were all once an impressionable child – who had to adapt to her surroundings and find a way to fit in.
Ideally we had good enough parents who met most of our needs in a satisfactory way. But even the most well-meaning parents can make mistakes, and leave a child feeling that their self-worth is conditional upon doing and being what was acceptable and expected of them.
Perhaps this resonates with you, and you now realise that you’ve been left with a weakened self-concept, unclear boundaries and a tendency to wear a mask and take care of everyone else’s needs.
Maybe you’ve been feeling that you’re just ‘going through the motions’ and have lost touch with your own identity and needs… and you’re missing out on fun and passion in your life.
For too many of us, the parenting and childhood we had was far from good enough, and we can then find our adult life and relationships a constant struggle too.
Early emotional wounds are very pervasive – especially if there was ongoing emotional or physical trauma – and they continue to give us pain, and to bleed into all areas of our lives.
Healing our Inner Child includes healing our negative conditioning, the trauma held in our bodies, releasing the labels we’ve been living with, and reclaiming our voice and vibrant personality that should never have been squashed or silenced.
Our inner child’s emotional wounds came not only from what we got and what happened to us – but also from what we didn’t get or experience.
The healing process starts with reconnecting with our Inner Child, and becoming re-acquainted with her embodied feelings – which may have been buried and hidden away, as a way of coping.
As we help to heal her emotional wounds we start to make peace with the past – which allows more freedom, authenticity and spontaneity in the future.
You may then feel that you want to take the next step (and workshop) of being able to play, create, share and celebrate – and become free and to give and receive the love and joy you deserve!
1. Inner Child Workshop – Healing & Recovery
If you’ve had an unhappy childhood with ‘difficult’ parents then your inner child may well need some extra help before she can be playful and have fun, heartfelt connections and release her creativity.
In this one-day workshop of inner child healing and recovery, we will safely revisit your past and the effect it’s had upon you – and help you to rescue and re-parent your inner child.
You will deeply connect with the child you once were – and review and reflect upon the impact of your experiences.
You will have a day of profound healing in this small safe group of women who are all on a similar journey of making peace with their past.
- PLEASE NOTE – if you have experienced chronic trauma, abuse and toxic parents, then the safety of one-to-one work will be better suited to you.
2. Inner Child Workshop – Play, Create & Celebrate!
Are you missing the fun in your life? Has it all got a bit dull and ‘samey’?
Have you been defined by the roles that you’ve been dutifully playing out for years – but these have now changed and you need to find your lost energy, authentic identity and passion?
It’s time you re-connected with your playful inner child!
In this one day workshop – which is both a follow on from the healing workshop as well as a stand alone – we will connect, explore, reflect, share, play and create. You’ll leave the day in a wiser and happier state than when you arrived – and will have made a few playmates too!
