Thrivin’ not 9 to 5’in (next session in 2024)
Life, we all experience it differently. But no matter where we are right now, and what’s in our past, we each have a unique experience and skills we can transfer into a career.
So whether you have been out of work for a while and you’re thinking it might not be for you anymore, or you’ve never found a workplace where your needs are met, this workshop is for you. Together, we will:
- Look at how all the skills we’ve picked up going through life can be channeled in a career
- Discover how, sometimes, the way we perceived ourselves is way different than what others see
- Look at our passions and special interests, and see what bits of them can be incorporated into a job, career or business
- Discover how we can make work choices which work around our lives and needs”
Facilitated by Fran, a supporter in women growing their careers around their lives and needs and a neurodivergent expert.
Buy the Shoes – Women, Gambling and Financial Confidence (next sessions in 2024)
We recognise gambling can destroy our relationship with money and resources. Shame, debts and fear can hold us back from moving forwards to a future we deserve. As an affected other we can find ourselves shouldering the family financial burden and trying to negotiate our way through the damage.
This course will connect you with others, assess your attitudes to finances, enable you to plan and maximise your income. It will also make you aware of support services available. This has been developed with our membership and Money Minded.
Trauma & Attachment next sessions in 2024
Being hurt in our early bonds to our (s)care givers can have devastating impacts on many aspects of our lives. This online educational workshop aims to help you develop an awareness and open curiosity towards your own attachment patterns. You might gain an understanding of how you had to attend to your own attachment needs as your environment and people around you were not able to meet your normal relational needs. When we have big hurts, we need to find big ways to help us cope.
Theres (facilitator) will use approachable language and will help you make sense of stuff. These workshops include reflective spaces to ask questions and make sense of what you have learnt.
Control your Emotions, Control your Life next sessions in 2024
We often believe that our emotions control us, but in fact we create our emotions by combining three powerful elements in well rehearsed patterns. Learning what these elements are and how we use them on a moment to moment basis can mean the difference between a powerful, destructive, negative emotional state, or a powerful, productive, positive emotional state.
Becoming mindful of how we’re actively creating our emotions at any given moment is literally life-changing. The quality of our lives is only ever as good as the quality of our emotions. Control your emotions, control your life. Facilitated by Rachel.
Understanding your 6 Human Needs – How to Meet them Healthily and Productively next sessions in 2024
Every human being has 6 Human Needs which they will meet on a daily basis. These are not wants but deep needs that we are driven to satisfy. Some of us meet these needs in negative or destructive ways, such as through addictions or behaviours that harm us. This is not a choice. We want the behaviour to stop but it’s as if we have no free will to overcome the powerful urges within us, even when we know this behaviour is harming us and those we love.
Learning the 6 Human Needs, what they are and how to meet them healthily and productively instead, offers us a compassionate way of understanding ourselves and the other people in our lives, With this compassion healing can begin because destructive behaviours become unnecessary and we can choose instead to build healthy, sustainable and fulfilling lives using positive ways to meet our needs.
