ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
Our inner child plays such a vital part in our experience. When we are triggered, a great question to ask is, "who is showing up right now?" Which part of me is activated or resurfacing? This workshop is about connecting you to the different parts of you that exist, what is conscious, unconscious what can we see and not see. You will the differences between the parts of you that show up, try and protect, are wounded and need more love than they ever received in the past. You will be able to uncover your past and see what gets set up when you are triggered and start getting to the root of your shame, anger, fear, pain or loneliness and why there is stuckness holding you back. The goal is to start to tend to the wounds that these parts have, the wounded child that needed to hear a very different message to the one they may have heard. Through love, connection and compassion we can start to show up for each part of ourselves and live a more balanced and true life.
Combining practices of Somatic therapy, Emotion Focussed therapy, Trauma therapy, Art therapy and Group Therapy, at this workshop what you can hope to find is a reconnection to your inner child and the ability to see, hear and understand yourself more fully and embrace all parts of yourself with compassion and grace.

What is Inner Child Work?
There’s always something deeper that exists within us, our reality is made up of our experiences which means that there is a lot under the surface or unconscious that exists. Inner child work is starting to access the stories, concepts, beliefs, thoughts, feeling and ideas that have been formed by our inner child, understanding what has been adaptive for survival, different ways of coping and meeting basic human needs in particular ways.
When we were little, we started to make sense of the world. We found out that what we are sitting on now is called a chair, our caregivers, mums or dads, are our parents, and they are meant to care for us. We then learn things about ourselves, are we important? Valuable? Loveable? How we find the answer to these lessons is from the direct or indirect messages we receive throughout our experiences. Interpreting these lessons and being with them at times needs us to adapt, a very normal response or defence mechanism to some of the challenging experiences that occurred. Our beliefs or messages work as the lens through which you experience and interpret the world today. Researcher Bruce Lipton explores this concept called the ‘Biology of Belief’ that from our childhood experiences, we made unconscious perceptions and interpretations that shape how we feel, think and react to the world.
When we show up for the part of ourselves that interpreted lessons and did their best based on what we had at the time, now we can choose how to address the potential skewed or wounded parts within us. When we start to nurture the part of ourselves that has been unconscious, abandoned or forgotten then we can start to use this part of us as a source to thrive, experience joy, creativity and flow.
