Transitions and Wellbeing project
'..every survivor is different with different needs and ways of healing.''
We will be offering the option of three therapy modalities, all modes will be 8 weeks in duration (consecutive weeks) to encourage group bonds and the experience of different dynamics, each group will have 8 members with a trained professional facilitator.
ANBU UK is committed to exploring both traditional and non-traditional approaches, offering diversity in support provision in recognition that every survivor is different with different needs and ways of healing.
To start things off, we’ve chosen the following therapy modalities: art therapy, group talking therapy and yoga.
Here more from our spokesperson Jumani
Group Art Therapy
Group art therapy is a supportive, warm and welcome space where clients can be creative together. It will be run by a qualified art therapist who will guide the sessions which will be 1hr 30mins for 8 weeks. It's a place to explore trauma, emotions and wellbeing in a supportive and safe space using art. You don't need to be an artist! You are invited to creatively express yourself in any way that suits you.
Group Talking Therapy
Group talking therapy is a space to explore your emotions, good and bad with clients who have had similar experiences. A qualified practitioner will guide your sessions which will be 1hr 30mins for 8 weeks. Communication is key in group talking therapy where other clients will be expressing their experiences and responding to yours. Learning from each other in a supportive environment is another benefit of group talking therapy.
Group yoga is a space to come together and practice the art of yoga. It will be led by a qualified yoga practitioner who will talk you through the different poses which will be 1hr 15mins for 8 weeks. It aims to help explore your connection with your body and your mind in a safe and supportive space. Yoga is also used as a relaxation technique to help calm the mind through the body.
