On Saturday October 22nd, NEEDS(Scotland) held our second Wellbeing Day at Cafe Coast, Aberdeen. The event was attended by group members from both Dundee and Aberdeen and also some former group members and carers. The workshops were on Body Image, led by Francine Dulong and Movement as Therapy part 2 led by Eveline Nicolette. Both were very well received. Francine creates workshops for school and university students for the charity BodyGossip based in London. She created a bespoke workshop for us based on responses to a questionnaire which she had sent out. The workshop was varied, interesting and certainly kept everyone engaged. We could have spent the whole day working on the various activities which were light and non-threatening. Eveline produced a sequel workshop to her initial one which she did at the September day, working in twos or threes, again in a non threatening and relaxed way, which everyone enjoyed. Some of our taster session therapists also took part which they enjoyed too! Taster sessions available this time were reiki, reflexology, shaitsu, massage and manicures. I can only speak for reflexology which was sublime and my beautiful bright red toenails! There are no photos because I was enjoying myself too much and totally forgot to take any! I did notice, however, that everyone left with a smile on their faces! Many thanks to the team at Cafe Coast for providing a superb venue, and a healthy and delicious light lunch. Also many thanks to the speakers and therapists who made the day another great success.
