From March to June 2018, Spring to Life is piloting a new well-being programme for a women’s group at the Birmingham Jesus Centre in Highgate, a newly launched centre run by the Jesus Army Charitable Trust, aiming to offer friendship and help to all in the community of Birmingham.
The programme consists of Dance and Movement for Well-being workshops jointly facilitated by a Dance Therapist (Amelia Sommers) and Education Movement Therapist (Liz Wright); as well as Art for Well-being workshops, jointly facilitated by a Art Therapist (Gillian Lever) and a Clinical Psychologist (Wai-Ling Bickerton). With the varied innovative joint sessions by practitioner of different therapeutic focuses, the programme aims to enrich member’s experience and enable holistic development of self and social confidence, and a sense of improved well-being.
In addition, our team of practitioners will also support a community engagement day (Fun Day) taking place on the 2 nd April 2018, with Spring to Life’s Drumming workshop (led by Calvert), Poetry workshop (led by Kurly) and Body Awareness workshop (led by Roland), to offer the local community a great day of fun, friendship and learning about ways to enhance their well-being.
We will gather feedback from the centre coordinator and those who come to our workshops on their experience of our programme, so we can develop it further in the future.
