Dates:

  • 15 May 2024

  • 17 July 2024
  • 18 September 2024

All sessions are from 13.00 -14.00

If you are interested in a  reflective practice place please contact coaching@swcouncils.gov.uk via your coaching champion (if known).

How will this work?

Michelle will invite you to join her up to 15 minutes ahead of the start time so that you can familiarise yourself with the templates provided and/or connect and chat with other participants.

The session  will start with some mindfulness helping  to move into a quieter energy. Participants will then have the choice of working separately in a break out room or remaining in the main room while working independently. Shortly before closing there will be a pairs exercise where you are invited to share any insights that have emerged. Gathering a few words from everyone we will create a “wordle” that will provide us all with an aide memoire of the session.

What will I reflect upon?

The intention is for participants to reflect on their client work – however, in truth it is an opportunity for you to process whatever you need to process.

How will this help me reflect?

We hope the events will provide a regular rhythm and protected space in which reflection can occur. As part of the joining instructions, you will receive some ideas, templates, or exercises to help build your repertoire of reflective approaches. The session will open 15 minutes early so that you can familiarise yourself with these documents and prepare. It is important to note that while some of these exercises will involve writing, our intention is to expand the “how” of reflective practice. We will be encouraging reflection through 5 prompts:

  • visual
  • auditory
  • writing
  • kinesthetic
  • poetry

Who is this for?

Any helping practitioner with any level of experience who wants to ensure they develop or embed or deepen their reflective practice.

How will I benefit?

  • An external prompt to engage in regular reflection
  • Extending your tool box of reflective approaches
  • Opportunities for building relationships with our wider community
  • Over time, greater clarity on your reflection preferences
  • Over time and with meta-reflection, discovering underpinning and emergent themes and patterns
