 Woman’s 2 day workshop: a place to deeply connect  to self and others 

Sometimes, we just need to stop and connect to others before we can realise we had the answers deep inside ourselves all along! 

Dates 2022 October 22nd  10am – 5pm  &  23rd 10am – 4pm                                              Workshop Fee £190

Are you needing some quality time away to stop, review life, connect to yourself and be enriched by sharing with other women?  

Sometimes, in life, we get caught in our busy schedules or ‘safe routines’ and lose sight of stopping to think what we might want. Life events (divorce, children leaving home, pending retirement) can also be a time of great uncertainty, leaving us unclear how to move forward. 

This workshop is for  small in number ( 6- 9) and will be suitable for women in a variety of different life situations who would like to stop for a while and reconnect to self.

Workshop Room

The venue has been chosen to suit women who live locally and also those who live further afield and need access to good accommodation.

Working in a small group of women can be a supportive place to reflect and hear different perspectives. 

During the weekend, I will facilitate structured exercises, guide personal visualisations and be part of the group discussions that evolve as we share our thoughts and stories.

You will hopefully return home feeling more focused, relaxed and enriched as you move forward. 

The weekend is not a therapy group but a personal development workshop. Please contact me if you need any further clarification about the difference. 

Following the workshop

  • A certificate of attendance/continual professional development (C.P.D. hours) can be issued on request after the weekend
  • If there is a need, then is it may be possible to discuss the workshop occurring twice a year, for those that would like  
  • Individual follow up consultations (subject to availability) can be arranged with Sandra or her colleague Dee Wilkinson Msc (Master Coach Practitioner) for those who may find this helpful. Details of Dee’s work can be found: 

Bridport and West Bay We will meet in the delightful market town of Bridport, which sits just over a mile away from the
stunning landscape of the southwest coastal path and the peaceful sea of West bay. If you can, why not treat yourself to an extended stay for a night or 2 after the workshop as there is much to explore in the town or coastal path

Bridport is a lovely town with many cafés and restaurants. It holds its historic market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Lunchtime will therefore provide a chance to explore its riches and buy lunch from one of the many café’s or take away outlets!

Travel and Parking the venue offers ample parking for day residents or those who are staying the night at the hotel  

For those who don’t live locally, Bridport is only about an hour drive from Exeter for those wishing to travel daily 

Meal times Outside the workshop times, for those that would like, there will be an opportunity to connect with each other for an evening meal on Saturday evening at the local Mexican restaurant (where I have 10% discount). £10 deposit is required for us to secure the table which can be paid to via booking form. The menu can be found  

On Sunday lunchtime people can spend time on their own or I can arrange a buffet lunch (£12) for those that want to eat at the hotel. An example of the buffet menu is available on request from the hotel (but be aware that this will be updated before October). Pre ordering and payment will be via the booking form.

Accommodation (for those who wish) I have included links for accommodation. These links reflect different budget options. I have secured a 10% discount for workshop members that want to stay at the venue hotel (a lovely hotel). You are also free to explore other links below.
