Learn a simple 5 step technique underpinned by neuroscience to help you develop cognitive flexibility and expand your sense of possibility at this therapeutic writing workshop with writer & teacher Dr Rachel Newsome. 

This two-hour workshop will offer a five-step therapeutic writing technique underpinned by neuroscience aimed at developing cognitive flexibility, gaining greater self-awareness and expanding your sense of possibility. 

It will include short writing exercises of between 5 to 15 minutes and a chance to share in small groups. 

The workshop is for anyone who is curious about how writing can be a tool to support transformative growth alongside creative and therapeutic practitioners who are interested in extending their range. 

It is focussed on process rather than outcome and what comes up in the writing rather than craft. 

This means that no previous writing experience is necessary and there will be no pressure to read anything out. 

All you need to bring is something to write on and something to write with. Although this workshop is therapeutic, it’s not therapy so you are invited to engage with the material at a level that feels right for you.
