Self care has become a popular theme in recent years. Our
ability to help others is closely linked to how well we look after ourselves.
This workshop explores this theme through the lens of mindfulness, self
awareness, active listening, professional supervision and song therapy.

Exact programme will be posted closer to the time but we might keep things
a little flexible anyway
given that it is the first time we have met up together. We wont try and
pack too much in, rather well use the day as an opportunity to relax,
enjoy some music making together, share thoughts on song therapy and our
own experiences. We will try and welcome informal contributions along
the way as well.
Maximum numbers will
be twenty five to thirty. As of 19/2/20 we have about twenty two so far
I believe. You are welcome to bring an instrument but piano/keyboards
might be a problem simply because of the space they take up so perhaps
best left at home, we will have a couple there anyway. Please let us know
what instrument you might be bringing. There will be plenty of instruments
available to play around with as well.
There is a workshop planned for Ireland this year, details to be announced.
CHP have their annual meeting in October, again, details to be announced.
Please make payment as soon as possible to guarantee your place, preferably
before the end of February and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
confirming payment. Once payment has been made this confirms your place
and we will send you a receipt as confirmation. Cost is £50 and
fully refundable up to two weeks before the event. Thereafter we will
try to refund in full so long as all our costs are covered or another
person steps in to take the place. The cost includes tea/coffee but excludes

association of musicians and activity co-ordinators promoting high standards
of professional practice in community and social care. It is run voluntarily
by a small group of us interested in providing high quality training opportunities
and other learning resources for independent singers, instrumentalists

children and adults and who are unable to afford the time or money to
study at university. More info here www.songtherapy.net

health practitioners, originally established in 1994. They accredit a
number of high quality private schools and colleges that provide a range
of training opportunities for complementary and alternative health practitioners.

professional practice and responsible informed delivery of a range of
