Creative Techniques – Faces Workshop
Time 10.30 – 14.30
Location: Reading, Berkshire
This workshop is suitable for:
Don’t worry, you don’t have to be ‘creative’ to get the benefit from these workshops!
It’s about using alternative ways, other than the spoken word, to express what’s going on. Using creativity, colour, shapes, writing and other inspirational ways to explore thoughts and challenges and find a deeper understanding.
For those of us in the coaching, counselling and therapy profession, creative techniques are a welcome addition to our tool-kit and one that Dr Pat Williams, co-founder of the ICF Core Competencies, calls an advanced skill, because, “it helps clients to get to the unconscious part without words getting in the way.”
By experiencing each exercise, you will come to understand how the tools and techniques work and how powerful they can be in providing an opportunity to find new perspectives and gain new insights that help create a positive shift.

Explore the faces you choose to show the world and the face you choose to keep hidden. Release your shadow-energy back into your life in a positive way.
All of us, probably, have 2 faces. The external persona, that behaves and speaks in a certain way, that conforms to a set of rules, that externally expresses the beliefs and values we live by. However, we all have a hidden face, part of which is a shadow-self, that is often a lot less nice, less forgiving, less kind and that we can often hear as our inner voice. And there is nothing wrong with this. It’s normal. But it can also be exhausting. If we are struggling so hard to keep the dark side of our shadow-self hidden, it is energy that we are not able to expend in any other way.
Using creative techniques we help you to elaborate on the face you show the world and help you notice and acknowledge the face you keep hidden and provide you with an opportunity to bridge the ‘gap’ between the two or merge them to become ‘one whole’ and release the shadow energy back into your life in a positive way.
Trio of workshops
This workshop is one of 3 that we run regularly and is designed to help you explore the use of creative techniques for your own, and, your client’s development.
On our website you will also see one-off workshops that tackle specific topics that our community say they want to explore with creative techniques to better support their clients.
Workshop 1 on Relating – what is our relationship with our self and others?
Workshop 2 on Influences – what has influenced us in our lives and is it still helpful?
Workshop 3 on Faces – the one we show the world and the one we keep hidden
You can book individually or for the Trio.
