Growing With Trust

We are constantly adapting developing and learning sometimes at a pace that's well beyond our comfort zone.

We are constantly adapting, developing and learning - sometimes at a pace that's well beyond our comfort zone. This practical session explores ways to be an ally to yourself at any moment: whether you're winning or whether you've just made a big mistake. We'll explore practices to cultivate confidence and trust in yourself (without falling victim to perfectionism). These can help you to generate unconditional self-care and move through your day with more ease and groundedness.
