Locally Run Course Designed to Help You Change for the Better!April 27th, 2012
I was invited to have a cup of tea and chat with Ashley Down resident Sue Weekes who along with Lucy Prentice-Miller has established Lusu Training. This is a small company which delivers self-development courses using art, drama and writing to help people to cope creatively with challenging changes.
The friends met at City of Bristol College where they discovered they both had lived through similar experiences with the bereavement of their husbands and ill health affecting family life. They soon set about devising a course they both would have found extremely beneficial and supportive if it was available during their time of need. They felt there was a definite call for a course which allowed people to work creatively with issues arising from unexpected changes in their lives.
The result has been the birth of the 6 week course Managing Change. This is a programme aimed at supporting anyone going through a major life change, possibly unplanned (eg bereavement, ill-health, divorce, redundancy, relocation) which they appreciate can impact on other aspects of peoples whole life.
The pair have relevant professional qualifications to devise and facilitate the course, as well as first hand experiences. Lucy and Sue want to give you the chance to explore issues in your life through right brain techniques which can often throw fresh light on problems, in a supportive environment.
The course is appropriate for people that are looking to acquire a set of creative skills to assist them in breaking negative patterns in their life.
A small group of 6 to 8 will work and grow together, sharing experiences and solutions. Sue and Lucy impressed on me that this is designed to be a light, positive course, that as well as dealing with issues in your life, you have time to relax and reflect over tea and cake.
The first course was completed last year and was a great success. The pair are now looking forward to meeting and assisting new people on their next course that starts on Thursday 14th June 2012 at the Quaker Meeting House, 300 Gloucester Road. The sessions run from 10 to 12 noon over six weeks. The price of the whole course is £15 to £60 depending on income.
Sue or Lucy welcome you to get in touch to discuss if this is the right course for you, if it isnt they may well be able to direct you to one that is.
