The Healing Arts
Stories and music for health and wellbeing.....
Working with individuals in a group collaboration
This is about helping people to voice and express their own experiences, within the context of the whole. By collecting individual memories and stories on a particular theme, and weaving them
together, we can help create and perform a story that is meaningful to both the individuals
concerned and their shared collective experiences.
Having the opportunity to express and share personal stories can be hugely empowering
for many individuals, especially for older people
who can often feel invisible and unvalued.
Workshops using stories and music.....
We use story to facilitate personal exploration
and development. Using the story as a
springboard, we encourage participants to
explore its resonance, both individually and
collectively, responding with imagery, words,
music and other arts media.
With our backgrounds as arts therapists we
are both experienced in facilitating therapeutic
groups, so we are able to offer a safe and
contained space for this groupwork.
