Healing the Family Story
"There are orphanages," he exclaimed to himself, "for children who have lost their parents--oh! why, why, why, are there no harbours of refuge for grown men who have not yet lost them?" ― Samuel Butler
Healing the Family Story is a workshop for anyone that wants to prepare for the Christmas holidays, and the niggling family stories that can push buttons of unconscious behaviors and probe old wounds. This workshop is for anyone wanting to gently work with family patterns with the support of a safe container, using group therapeutic tools and community to invoke healing and understanding.
We will be exploring group work and self enquiry to explore family triggers. This will be a hands-on workshop, with space for group discussion, time set aside to meet our emotional needs and sensitively hold check-ins.
We will be using Emotional Freedom Techniques and tools from Joanna Macy.
Doors open at 19.30pm.
Due to the sensitive nature of this work no entry will be possible after 20:00pm.

Feedback from Previous Events:
"Best thing I have done in such a long time." – Curtis Avent
"I found this very helpful, even in this short workshop I discovered a new perspective to my insecurities which is a very powerful tool. I felt like everyone was supported and Dominique created a safe space for us to explore this. I would love to attend a longer workshop with her, she is highly recommended." – Sam Pugh
"Dom was such a great facilitator for this workshop, her energy is so great and she held the space very well. She was super understanding of everyone's needs and felt into the situations to see if anyone needed extra support or attention at any time, there was no pressure for anyone to do anything they weren't comfortable with but we all showed up with honesty and vulnerability, I felt very supported. The EFT was my favourite part of the day, it was super powerful and the statements used where specific but also resonated massively among the group. I would definitely attend another one of her workshops and even considering having some EFT sessions separately too." – Rachael Kelly
"Really well held by the facilitator, who managed to weave together a good amount of her own knowledge and understanding, whilst creating space for group discussion and reflection, whilst also creating the space for embodied and relational exploration between participants using some techniques that she was skilled in. There was enough containment to be able to touch in to what it is a really wild area." – Luke Brinsford
"This event has really stuck with me, Dominique is doing really important work. Both of the guests I got partnered up with cried due to overwhelming feelings of self-discovery as well as myself. We performed some unique techniques of therapy which i’d never seen before and was very effective for healing, dealing, accepting and calming inherited hurt." – Samuel
