SummaryThis half day will teach you practical 'anchor' techniques that can be used to support confidence, calmness & resilience, both for yourself and others.
ANCHORING TECHNIQUES FOR WELLBEING (HALF DAY)
This workshop is aimed at anyone supporting children and/or young people.
Anchors are techniques that can be used to lift our own, or those who we are supporting, confidence, calmness and ability to cope well and feel more motivated, by changing our, or their, state relatively quickly.
Anchors are a very useful NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) technique, which enable us to anchor ourselves to a calm, relaxing time in our lives, or a calm and relaxing place, or person, a feeling or a memory. Even a scent!
We will explore four different ways of using anchors, so that you will feel confident and comfortable using them yourself. They are simple to use yet incredibly powerful.
You will go away with four different practical anchoring exercises that you can use for yourself, your children and your family and friends or people you work with.
As we will be working together online, please have with you:
- A scent of some kind – perhaps a flower from the garden, a favourite perfume or aftershave, your favourite essential oil, a soap, or pillow spray
- Whatever gives you the ‘state’ or feeling you’d like to recreate
- An object that is easy to hold and that feels comfortable in your hand – a marble is perfect as it has different shades quite often or colours
- A memory of a time or place or person or feeling you’d like to recreate to keep with you
- An idea of what different colours mean to you and how different colours influence how you feel
This half-day workshop is £30, but is available to Somerset residents for FREE thanks to funding from Somerset Skills & Learning (SS&L).
Please contact Children's World to book your place.
