What is the event?

Making Sense of Wellbeing - Resilience Skills and Strategies

This twelve week course for parent-carers offers you the opportunity to explore some of the essential elements of wellbeing. Our personal and social wellbeing helps us to develop good relationships, feel connected to others and improves our resilience, empathy, and adaptability. The course includes a blend of wellbeing and mindfulness workshops designed to help you enhance your relationship with your child with additional needs, build resilience, reduce stress and help you to relax. Each session can be attended as a stand-alone but we would encourage to you attend all if you are able to.

Session 1: Wellbeing Workshop - Active Listening Do you want to feel ‘heard’? This workshop helps you understand the key skills in active listening, including listening with all senses and enhancing your understanding of others.

Workshops are delivered via Zoom by parent-carer Esther Hunt, a registered and accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and a Mindfulness Teacher trained by the British Mindfulness Institute.

Please note this workshop is funded by Reaching Families for parents and carers of children with special educational needs and/or disabilities in West Sussex only. It is not suitable for professionals.
