Come along to our fortnightly drop-in group, where you can learn tools for self-healing and relaxation.
Roz and Michele will lead a restful and restorative experiential session using relaxation and visualisation techniques for self healing. They will be very happy to answer any questions. No experience is necessary!
Healing supports physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual well-being by encouraging relaxation of the mind and body, understanding and acceptance of emotions, and connection to what sustains us. It is appropriate for all. Since the very beginning of ‘Penny Brohn UK’ healing has been an integral part of our offering to support clients through diagnosis, treatment and beyond, so you can feel confident that you are in safe hands.
The facilitators Roz Chissick and Michele Eve have a combined experience of 18 years at Penny Brohn UK working with people affected by cancer. Both trained with The Healing Trust, a nationally recognised and accredited training body. They have a wide experience of helping clients in challenging situations. As well as 1:1 healings, Roz is a qualified Mindfulness instructor and Michele runs weekly Healing Circles in her own practice.
The session will last approximately 45 minutes.
There is no expectation to contribute unless you would like to. As with all our group sessions, the option to have your video and audio on is completely optional.
No equipment is necessary. We encourage you to make yourself comfortable in a chair or in bed, ideally somewhere you will not be disturbed. You may wish to create a space of relaxation with a candle, or anything that makes you feel calm and peaceful in order to enjoy your healing session.
Frequently Asked Questions
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email from Zoom containing information about how to join the session.
For the comfort and safety of everyone joining our online groups we have a few room rules we ask everyone to observe.
- Try and arrive on time for the start of the session if you can, if you do join late please mute yourself on entry to avoid disturbing others.
- In general it makes for a better group experience if people can see each other, but do feel free to turn your video camera off if you are not feeling up to being visible that day
- Make yourself comfortable and join the meeting from your favourite cosy space, but if your video camera is on, please check what can be seen by others. Although pyjamas are fine if you’re currently bed-bound, do dress in a way that is appropriate for a group gathering.
- Please keep yourself on mute unless you are talking, especially when there may be distracting noises in the background.
- Take part in discussions and question-and-answer sessions, if you want to, but please listen to others and help the meeting host to ensure everyone has time to speak if they wish. The group lead may suggest using the hands up icon or typing questions into
the chat box.
- If group participants share personal stories and sensitive information, please treat this as confidential and avoid disclosing anything outside of the group without their permission.
- Should a group participant share information that raises a concern for their personal safety, we will follow this up privately in line with our safeguarding responsibilities.
- Technical failures and internet problems are quite common with online platforms, if the facilitator or another participant experiences problems please be understanding.
- In the unlikely event that a group participant says or does something inappropriate in a session, we will immediately remove them from the room and may take further action.
