I work with you to create the perfect workshop or seminar for your group or workplace.
Workshops and courses can be designed for an individual group making each one unique and meaningful. What better way to bring a positive energy into a work place, learning facility or organization?
For the past twelve years I have had the pleasure of facilitating several workshops for the general public and business use. All are based on the importance of mind, body and spirit connection. Finding balance within brings balance in the home. at school and at work. As a trained and experienced hypnotherapist and meditation facilitator I combine the techniques of both in order to provide an extremely meaningful and often life altering experiences for the participants. Through talks and exercises on how our minds work, how you can motive yourself through meditation and positive affirmations I can guide your staff on a path of manifesting the goals of your company and their personal goals as well.
Having worked in both the retail and service industry and in the caregiver role through my profession and in the volunteer capacity, I am fully aware of the stress related to dealing with the public, meeting goals and deadlines, and keeping up with the changes in the workplace all the while juggling family and life in general. By learning coping skills, you can make all things work! Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could offer your staff and yourself these tools? Not only would the work environment improve but these are things that can be used in everyday life. It is vital that your employees be looked after if you wish your business to thrive. Burnout, illness and fatigue are too often the cause of staff change over as well as mistakes and accidents in the workplace.
By incorporating simple yet effective methods of dealing with stress, setting goals, dealing with compassion fatigue you are not only giving your staff life coping skills but you are creating a happy, healthy and positive work environment.
Workshops At Work
I have conducted all day workshops, afternoon seminars and private sessions set up in the workplace for staff/students. Here are a few places where this has worked out very well.

- Rejuvenate, Refuel and Recharge...Rising above Compassion Fatigue: All too often those working in the caregiving / helper professions become affected with what has been come to be known as Compassion Fatigue. The very reason that inspired them to go into a profession of helping others has become a weight upon them physically and emotionally. In this all day workshop we will not only cover what the symptoms are for Compassion Fatigue, Vicarious Trauma and Burnout but through open discussion and a variety of exercises learn the tools that will assist them in preventing and overcoming the stress and distress that can occur if ignored. This workshop can be designed for a specific workgroup for example teachers, councilors, physicians and nurses or those working/volunteering in shelters, hospice, victim services, or any other profession where caregiving /helpers are working. Why wait until this hits? This workshop can benefit not only those already in these professions but students entering these positions.
- A few comments from Trent University Wellness Department after attending this workshop:
- " There were helpful reminders of behaviours and intent that I need to reintroduce into my practice."
- " I enjoyed practicing the breathing and meditation exercises."
- " The handouts were very helpful."
- " Liked the flow of the workshop, lots to reflect on, too short! Could have gone on for two days!"
- "Learning about Compassion Fatigue more in depth allowed me to reflect upon my own work in terms of being more aware of my surroundings. This will help me better understand what work is like for my coworkers and myself."
- "Your calm voice was healing."
- "Workshop was skillfully guided. You gently guided us back to the task /presentation at hand."
- "The meditations were great! It was a good day to bond further with coworkers."
Make It Happen...Motivation. Meditation. Manifestation: This is an excellent 3-4 hour workshop that can easily be adapted for any workplace or as a personal growth course. By using the book by the same name, we will work through the steps of how we create our reality, how the conscious and subconscious mind work, positive affirmations, steps in meditation and manifesting your goals and desires. This can be done with the idea of how a group can bring together the common goal or how each individual person can become all they can be. The adaptations are limitless! There is a lot of content that could be explored and this can easily be broken into a two or even three part course. This would make the perfect retreat theme. This is also an excellent workshop for those returning to the workplace as it will provide the tools to reach their goals.
- Mental Health Healing through Meditation : This workshop teaches the basics of meditation, benefits of a meditation practice in achieving over all well being and coping techniques in those stressful situations. Easily a full day workshop but it can be beneficial as an introduction through a half day class. This is wonderful for clients and staff as it can be used to ease the burdens of work and home.
