Details of the first workshop on Saturday 3rd June are accessible here to make a booking. We look forward to seeing you there.
Viv successfully coached her first group of creative practitioners during a four hour walk on the Quantock Hills, Somerset. The walks are a new health and wellbeing initiative launched in Aug 2016, supported by the National Trust out of Fyne Court, nr Bridgwater. Viv uses the Hero’s Journey Methodology as a Transformative Coaching tool, enabling participants to share the stories of their creative lives and reflect on the challenges and achievements they have experienced or are willing to experience if they take the necessary actions to make the changes they need in their lives. Courageous stuff. Participants said: “This helped me to know I am on the right path in my life” , “I gained the direction I needed” & ” it helped me re-align my priorities with my creative core and the outcomes I want“. Viv walks with group of 5 from education, business and the creative sector or individually, one to one. Click here for more
