Welcome to our July Newsletter. I am writing this from a hotel room in Exeter this month, as I am finishing the last part of my counselling course. As I am standing on the edge of this life cycle (that is what I like to call the significant moments of my life journey), I feel the new phase on the horizon: another cycle is about to begin too. I am becoming a qualifying liberation counsellor soon, and I cannot be more humbled, excited and equipped. Eager to start the work in my own capacity and continue it for the charities I volunteer at as well.
Healing – We need to open up our healing processes to experimentation
Empowerment – We need to reclaim the power
Liberation – We need the freedom to connect with our authenticity
Our communities – Community is our home
Our boundaries – We have to learn to respect our boundaries
Our needs – our personal and collective needs inform healing
Care – We need safe spaces
Collective care – We are social creatures
Self-care? Self-care is political.
