Monday Workshops 1-4pm

Interactive workshops to be held at Noah’s Ark Centre, once a month, with a different overarching theme each month.

These will provide an opportunity to discuss hypothetical/anonymised cases relating to the workshop theme. Workshops will be led by Alosa Kaimacuata or Natalie Wilkins; both with extensive experience of counselling children and young people.

The workshops are suitable for any professional working in the field of emotional health and wellbeing of children and young people – e.g. counsellors, school staff, social workers, family support workers etc., and will have elements of theory; participation; interaction, experiential learning and supervision.

Cost: £35 (includes certificate of attendance). The income raised by these workshops will go towards continuing our counselling provision at Noah’s Ark Centre.
