Intensive workshops are held on a regular basis as either a boost to your current therapy, as an introduction to these topics or for those who are not ready or unable to commit to regular therapy. All who are already attending Individual or Group Therapy sessions are also welcome to join! All workshops will be held by Jen and will be delivered in a group setting. If you would like to see different topics being offered in a workshop, or if you would like to arrange for a private workshop please contact Jen to discuss.

What to Expect:
When you attend a workshop at The Essence of You, you can expect psycho-education on the topic of the workshop you are attending, and exploration around how that topic impacts you.
Similarly to how Jen's Individual & Group Therapy Sessions work, you will be supported to increase your awareness of your thoughts and feelings, and to connect to your emotions and inner voice. Workshops are different from these because you will be encouraged to do more self-reflection, and while you will be guided in this by Jen, you will not be given direct questions and feedback like you would in an Individual or Group Therapy Session.
Jen encourages discussion amongst the participants to give opportunity for relating and sharing. She guides and direct all of her workshops in a way to promote a safe space and to help ensure that the goals of each participant are being met.
Jen has a special interest (and training) in Expressive Arts Therapy and often leans on this to help her clients with deeper connection and exploration of their issues (learn more about Jen here). Jen almost always use some form of expressive arts therapy in her workshops, however this is something that I am flexible with depending on the needs of each participant in the group.
