Outline of the Workshop

The workshop has been designed by therapist, Fiona McDonald to provide a safe space for like-minded young people to come together to explore their current situation as they perceive it. The emphasis of the day will be on empowerment through educational and practical sessions covering:

  • Goal setting: individual visions for the future and time-lines
  • Problem solving: identifying challenges to personal success and options to overcome these
  • Building knowledge of self: current beliefs of self, patterns of behaviour & thinking which influence personal outcomes, self-sabotage and what it looks like, personal responsibility versus victimhood, life experience as teacher, self-love
  • Understanding the human energy field: mind-body connection, energy points and meridians, how our energy field interacts with that of others, clearing and protecting our energy,

About the Therapist: Fiona has drawn on diverse experience in designing this workshop, including:

  • Occupational Therapy: Fiona graduated as an Occupational Therapist in 1987 and has worked extensively with persons with mental health and/or physical disability since then. In addition, she has experience within the Irish university sector, being involved in the education of new Occupational Therapists.
  • Complementary Therapies: In the last fifteen years, Fiona developed an interest in complementary therapies, going on to train in both Reconnective Healing and Integrated Energy Therapy (IET). She became a Master Instructor in IET in 2007, which allowed her to go on to train others in this energy therapy technique. Both healing modalities work on the belief that life events influence the energy field of the individual. Negative emotions may become trapped in the body and can lead to decreased health and well-being over time.
  • Child and Adolescent Counselling: Fiona completed a Diploma in Child and Adolescent Counselling in 2019 to further inform her work with younger persons.

Cost: €65 including workbook. Snacks provided by organiser. Lunch not provided.
