Introduction to Expressive Writing
Are you interested in learning more about Expressive Writing? Either for yourself, or to use in your work as a helping professional? If so, our private introductory sessions may be the perfect solution.
In these sessions we provide evidence-based information about the benefits of Expressive Writing. This is what one particpant said about her session:
"I found the expressive consultation helped me to articulate and structure my thoughts and feelings in a way I hadn't done so before. The writing and subsequent reading process formulated a personal conversation between my conscious and subconscious minds. This was a unique way of creating a dialogue which challenged me to think reflectively about my present and past experiences.
With pen and paper I have the flexibility to release my inhibitions, without fear of being reprimanded or judged and the realisation that expressive writing can function as a remedial tool in my life’s journey, one of which can support me as I strive towards finding progressive solutions and closure on the subjects which cause anxiety and decisions where I may have a tendency to be indecisive." - Individual Particpant (name protected for privacy)
