    Mindfulness is incomplete without the heart of compassion.
    To be open to our own suffering is the first step towards truly helping others.

    We will look closely at how we can cultivate awareness and bring kindness to ourselves and our interactions with others. We will see how patience and forgiveness can help us in times of difficulty and how expressing gratitude can bring us together.

    The workshop is suitable for those with previous experience and for people who are new to this approach.

    There will be discussion, guided meditations and interactive exercises, along with some underpinning theory from contemporary experts in the field and traditional Buddhist teachings.

    ​Annie Akasati has practiced and studied Mindfulness and compassion for over three decades and also has 20 years' meditation teaching experience.

    She is an ordained Buddhist and is trained to teach Mindfulness-based Compassionate Living (MBCL), as well as the MBCT and MBSR mindfulness courses. Annie is a member of the UK Mindfulness Network.

    Trauma Training for Therapists (CPD)

    10am - 5pmThe Wilbury Clinic

    Trauma Training for Therapists
    Sunday November 4th 2018
    10am - 5pm

    To Book:

    • Understand what Trauma, PTSD, Complex PTSD is
    • Psychoeducation - Understanding the neurobiology of Trauma and how to incorporate it into the therapy
    • Safe Trauma Assessment including Trauma line
    • Using and teaching Safety and Stabilisation
    • Self care contracting
    • Processing trauma
    • Preventing Vicarious Trauma

    This day will clarify what “Trauma” actually is and how to recognise the signs of PTSD and complex PTSD (and what the difference is).

    There will be a thorough explanation of what happens in the brain in trauma responses and the importance of working safely with such clients by keeping them in their ‘window of tolerance’. You will learn how to offer psycho education to clients to help them normalise and validate that responses to trauma are normal reactions to abnormal events AND it is important to acknowledge their destructive potential when the traumatic event is no longer occurring.

    We will cover assessment and information gathering and offer a ‘tool box’ of ways to regulate your clients distress levels. You will come away with a clear self care plan to work effectively with clients.

    The ‘Trauma line’, will be introduced and experienced. This is a creative way of developing a time line of life events using the symbolism of string, rocks, flowers and night lights.
