Lea Road Community Church Workshop

DSC_1025We visited Lea Road Community Church last month in Wolverhampton and facilitated a workshop with their Roma community.DSC_1027

We showed them self help techniques they can use on themselves but also on each other which can promote relaxation, support stress and anxiety but also reaches out and lets them able to work and communicate with each other in a caring way.

DSC_1031We had a great time and we think the pictures that were captured show it too.  We had great feedback and as a result are going back to them in October.



If you would like us to do a similar workshop in your community or organisation please contact us for details.

83% scored it 4/5 for Interesting

83% scored it 4/5 for Useful

92% scored it 4/5 for Relaxing.

Wonderful ladies, very enjoyable, very interesting and informative, very useful and  relaxing.

Favourite parts of the workshop were relaxing, breathing exercises, our stretchy yellow men, visualisation and being taught and practising self help techniques.
