We start the Black Girls Healing Through Wellness program with a catered healthy, and hearty lunch for program participants, wellness practitioners, and the program team.
Each week, before we divide into the individual wellness themes, activities and workshops, we check on the emotional well-being of the program participants. We used an interactive and moderate exercise to gauge the emotional state of the participants by drawing on interactions and feelings that they had—during the week leading up to the program.
This workshop will allow the program participants to get in touch with their image of self-love in a fun way & bring out the confidence in believing in their purpose through intuition & guidance. With powerful meditations, insightful mantras, breathwork & more, this will be the workshop to uplift! Guided meditation helps each connect with their higher self & feel into a higher power.
This workshop will allow the program participants to develop the creative habit of journaling their feelings on paper. In the provided ForUsGirls notebooks participants will answer journal prompts from the workshop facilitators, as they dive deeper into the weekly theme topics, themselves, and their inner voice, to understand developing healing from existing trauma or emotions.
This workshop will use cognitive behavioural therapy to address the program themes of social anxiety, depression & sadness from social media, and the violations of boundaries. The lmental health specialist and therapist will provide participants with coping mechanisms to better handle situations deaing with the selected themes. This workshop will use interactive elements, creativity, and collaborative group dynamics to engage the participants in sharing their experiences with the theme topics in a supported and safe environment.
"If you are struggling to navigate your relationships or need help finding solutions to your problems, I am here to help. I support individuals from all backgrounds to help them clarify, pursue, and achieve their goals. By establishing trust and openness in our relationship, we will work together to understand who you are in your relational and cultural context. I will help you find ways to amplify your strengths so they can be an asset to you.
I understand how connecting and creating relationships with my clients helps them achieve greater self-understanding. By taking a person-centred approach and using therapeutic approaches, including emotion-focused therapy (EFT), cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and solution-focused therapy (SFT), we can ensure therapy fits your individual needs.
As you grow in your understanding of how your ideas, emotions, and behaviours contribute to your overall mental health, your increased personal and interpersonal awareness will empower you to move forward in your life with confidence and success."
