"Resilience is a precious skill. People who have it tend to also have three underlying advantages: a belief that they can influence life events; a tendency to find meaningful purpose in life's turmoil; and a conviction that they can learn from both positive and negative experinces."

- Amanda Ripley

WHY RESILIENCE?

Resilience builds a strong and healthy sense of self. Resilience can be cultivated in individuals and strengthened. Part of that process involves me helping my clients realize the ways in which they are already resilient. All of us have room for improvement, but it’s also important to spend time acknowledging the strengths and positive qualities that we already possess.

APPROACH RESILIENCE CREATIVLY

As well as highlighting personal strengths, resilience asks for a creative mind set, a "thinking-out-of-the-box" attitude. That is why it is helpful to use creativity as an approach to building resilience. By training a creative mindset, one learns how to improvise in moments that are challenging and stressful. At the same time, the act of being creative opens up a space for us to approach lifes difficulties in a playful way.

MY APPROACH

As a trained Expressive Arts Facilitator my unique approach to resilience training for professionals allows my clients to discover and highlight their own unique resources. They learn how to make use of them to master challenging situations, either in the work place or at home. I use easily accessible and engaging  arts based approaches to resilience training as well as more traditionally known methods. You do not have to be artistically inclined to take part - it is about your process through the art making, not necessarily  the result. I invite you to come with a curious and open and mind set.
