Event description


The Flourishing Lives Reflective Practice Groups are aimed at arts, health and wellbeing professionals. From discussions with you we realise how strong the need for support is – and we want to support you.

These groups offer support and a space to explore and learn with other practitioners working in arts, health and wellbeing settings.

Maybe you work in a day centre, an arts organisation, a clinical setting, outreach initiative or in freelance community arts – everyone is welcome. We recognise how complex your roles can be and we feel that a non-judgmental place outside of work can be a really useful place to unravel your thoughts and reflections on the challenges you face and your successes.

They are online groups of up to 8 practitioners and are led by trained facilitators and counsellors. The sessions run for two hours and cost £15 per person.

Please contact david@flourishinglives.org with any questions – we’d be happy to have a chat. We want to run these groups in a way that suits you and we value your feedback, so if there’s something stopping you from attending, such as the time or cost, please let us know.

We are delighted to be working alongside our partners at Ben Uri Gallery & Museum and Claremont Project who are regular online hosts of the groups
