Introductory Arts Psychotherapy Workshop for Health and Wellbeing Professionals


On the 12th February Kathy Ross and Helena Lewis, both Integrative Arts Pyschotherapists, ran a workshop for Health and Wellbeing Professionals in the Ealing area. The aim was to introduce professionals, from varied backgrounds, to the arts as a way of self-exploration. It was an experiential workshop which was well recieved by participants, from a variety of backgrounds including aromatherapists and counsellors.


The workshop was held at The Grange in Ealing, in the Reading Room which provided a comfortable and contained venue within easy access of public transport.


Participants discovered the benefits of working with the arts which include:


From my view, as a facilitator, this group worked well because of the common interest all participants had: in engaging with new materials; a willingness to exploring themselves using the arts (and sometimes new materials) and a respectfulness of others personal process.


A big thank you to my co-facilitator and all participants for making this workshop such a success.
