About this event

The aim of the day is to allow counsellors and therapists to have a dedicated day of compassionate self care.

Having had to adapt our way of working over the last 2 years, much of it remotely, this day will give you the opportunity to rest and feel nurtured in a safe space.

As counsellors and therapists, we are aware of the power of silence and as such some of the day will be spent in silence to put us in touch more deeply with our thoughts, bodily sensations and emotions. The day will also focus on integrating Mindfulness and self compassion practices, gentle movement and compassion exercises.

Some experience of Mindfulness meditation would be useful but not essential.

Note to Attendees: Attendees should bring a packed lunch and a flask for hot drinks. Yoga mat, cushion and blanket. All practices can be done seated, only lie on floor if it’s your preference. Notepad and pen.

Aimed at counsellors and therapists

Facilitator - Gill Burns

I have been practicing Mindfulness individually since 2012. In 2013 I became a trained Mindfulness teacher with the Mindfulness Association. This eventually led me to training as a counsellor in 2016 at University of Strathclyde. I previously worked in the third sector and regularly taught Mindfulness to the people I worked with.

I am passionate about Mindfulness and I believe it be an excellent way to help people manage the challenges of modern life.
