The Grove’s creativity course has a central aim: to discover and enhance your own creativity which allows you to better serve your clients or supervisees in creative ways.
If you’re a therapist or coach or wellbeing practitioner who’d like to make sure your clients benefit from sessions in a deeply meaningful way, then this short training is designed just for you.
There are many ways to connect with clients. Connection may come about verbally but for some clients that may reach them. That’s where we might reach for our creative selves allowing alternative ways to better serve our clients.
The Grove’s creative resonance workshop is purposefully experiential allowing you to work with different creative modalities: from music, art, drama-dialog, playlisting, nature observing, sketching ‘parts’ of ourselves, all the way to expressive movement or guided visualisation.
The workshop will ignite your own creative self, empowering you to bring that resonance for your clients or supervisees. It is a fun enjoyable way to let your creativity emerge for the benefit of clients and supervisees.
