“Having been a founder member of this wonderful Creativity Workshop Group since it began in 2014, I’ve seen it develop and grow in strength and diversity throughout that time.
I see it as being a means to look at and expand your Creativity in the broadest sense, in every aspect of life. It’s fun, searching, companionable, insightful, thought-provoking. Each workshop, whether getting together in a group, or on Zoom during Covid times, is immensely fulfilling and rewarding. Rachael brings her wealth of Gestalt knowledge and experience, but it is by no means therapy-led, and Rachael often forms part of the group for exercises and tasks.
We have become a close-knit group over the years – and despite our age range, from 20s to 60s, all feel that we have thoughts, feelings and experiences which are very in-tune with each other. A joy to be with these people.
Most of all the Group is really great fun and gives a wonderfully close experience. A day of totally stepping out of your day to day life.
I would strongly recommend joining Rachael and any new Creativity Awareness Workshop or Group.”
“I joined Rachael’s Paths to Growth group 6 years ago and have rarely missed one since!
Rachel’s warm, gentle and creative nature sets the tone for women to gather together and explore their own internal landscape and innate creativity. She creates a space where you feel comfortable to just be you – whatever that looks like on the day!
The friendships that I have built within the group over the years are some of the most authentic and supportive I have ever had.
The Paths To Growth retreats have really changed my view of myself and allowed me to explore new directions in all areas of my life. I couldn’t recommend joining one more!”
“Rachael’s workshops are always beneficial, helping us to focus on the present, on what is going on around us and how that might be affecting us. Allowing us to be thoughtful and experimental in looking at creative ideas and seeing how they might tie in with our own paths through our lives. They also allow us to communicate with a very special small group of people in a safe, warm and supportive way.
The workshops are always inspirational, thought provoking and leave you feeling content and replenished.”
“I started the workshops after they’d been running for several years – I couldn’t have joined a more friendly and welcoming group. With a big age-range and diversity of lifestyles, each person contributes to making it an exciting and fun place. It’s my treat to myself (my “me-time”). Each workshop is unique and combines a mix of creativity, peace, spirituality, nurture, nature, support and much laughter. Rachael runs these workshops with her usual professionalism, enthusiasm and warmth. Our face-to-face groups have the additional treat of sharing whatever we’ve all brought for lunch. The lock-down digital groups have gone incredibly well and it always raises my spirits to spend time with these special people.”
For me Rachael’s workshops are personal development, creativity, self-care, connecting with nature, a women’s circle all wrapped up in fairy dust!
