Andy Wilson (MSc Counselling, Bristol; MBA, Warwick; BA, Psychology, Durham; PGCE, UWE) is a counsellor, coach and trainer based in Cardiff. He has an evidence-informed approach, in particular drawing on ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Training) and Emotion-Focused Therapy (Greenberg and Elliot). Andy has attended ACT training with Russ Harris, Steven Hayes and Kelly Wilson.
Vicki Worsley is a counsellor, teacher and trainer who has meditated for over 20 years. She trained in mindfulness with Jon Kabat-Zinn (USA), Thich Nhat Hanh (France) and at Bangor University. She recently completed an MA in Buddhist Studies at Bristol University.
The workshop draws on ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Training) and Mindfulness (MBSR/MBCT) approaches. It will be an opportunity to reflect on your experience of facing stress triggers and learn new ways of responding to these. The workshop will include input, techniques and exercises you can take away, discussion and experiential awareness activities.
A central part of the learning on this workshop will take place between students, in the group. For this learning to take place it is essential that the group environment is comfortable, friendly and supportive. We see it as a key part of our role to facilitate this environment.
We will have a break half-way through the morning. The Insole Court café serves drinks and snacks. Do bring your own water.
