I enjoy travelling, so am prepared to come to you if you cannot attend a course. I am very happy to discuss how I can bring the training to you.
Please feel free to contact me to discuss a quotation regarding costs & expenses.
If you wish to arrange for a group of people to come together in a venue near you, again please feel free to contact me.
I provide flexible training courses and will adapt content to suit your needs, where possible, whether at your place of work, or other venue of your choice. Whether you are a bodywork specialist broadening your skills or a residential care provider who wishes to enable their team to communicate compassionately and discover ways to quietly engage with those they provide care to, my aim is that everyone leaves the training with immediately useable new skills they can implement practically & sensitively.
Massage or nurturing touch can be a beneficial form of non verbal & compassionate connection for personal carers, friends, family, professional carers, activity co-ordinators, nurses, dementia link & liason professionals, physiotherapists, other therapists & anyone who wishes to improve the life of someone who lives with dementia.
We all need support in the work we do and isolation can occur easily. As professionals we need to take responsibility for our health physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, especially if we are dealing with sensitive cases or dealing with life limiting illness or end of life care. I truly believe we need to take care of ourselves so we can look after and enable our clients better.
