We have recently won funding through The Grenfell Projects Fund to run workshops in our local area. We also work with The Royal Borough Kensington & Chelsea to support residents who have experienced trauma.
Additionally, we have won a grant from the Westway Trust to run workshops in our local community.
FUNDED BY THE GRENFELL PROJECTS FUND
We have been awarded £10k to run workshops and classes in the community to help those affected by the Grenfell tragedy. We will run workshops in local community centres, Spring / Summer 2021, free of charge.
These will include::
* Beginners Pilates Classes (twice a week)
* Stress / anxiety / sleep / digestion workshops incorporating breathwork, nutritional advice and hand reflexology
* Body MOT
* Introduction to Mindfulness and Energy Healing
* Men Cry Too : Men's Circle
* Homeopathy Course
* Back to Sleep Meditation Course
* 6 week Beginners Yoga Course
* Healthy Weight Loss / Menopause / Healthy Ageing Course
* Chi Gong Workshops
* Soothe Your child with Massage Course
* Tapping courses for Children
* Reiki, Q&A and taster sessions
We are thrilled to have been awarded a grant by the Westway trust to help us to help those most in need in our local community. We will use this money to provide free workshops in North Kensington and bring mental and physical health support to our local community.
We hope to make a significant difference in the social wellbeing of individuals in our community. Through our project we hope to give people tools to live more active and healthy lifestyles, and skills to thrive.
We want to help people to feel better physically and mentally, and feel looked after, listened to and less isolated.
We also work closely with the Royal Borough Kensington & Chelsea. offering one-to-one sessions to residents affected by trauma. As of July 2021, we have delivered 800+ sessions to over 150 people. We have been honoured to meet and work with so many amazing people and such a strong and powerful community, it has been quite a journey. We have built beautiful relationships and helped rebuild lives.
Each person has had 6-12 hourly sessions with us and our team. We offer a multidisciplinary approach that looks at each client and their needs and symptoms individually and then selects a mix of our therapies to work together. This is the first time such professional and well provisioned continued care has been provided and the results have been amazing - actually even better than we could have expected. It has shown how very powerful ‘alternative’ therapies can be, especially when working as a team together.
We have helped people where medication couldn’t. Trauma and grief tends to sit in the body and when you work through it gently in this physical way, the results can be phenomenal. We are so grateful for this opportunity and to be able to use our medicine in this way. We hope to write a paper this year showing the process and our results. This is something that needs to be incorporated into mainstream care.
