This group usually meets four times a year. it is funded through our Better Breaks funding and we try to create a relaxed atmosphere for parents to have a cup of tea and speak to other parents. In some of the sessions we include activities which has meant the parents feel well supported. We have also opened up the opportunity for parents to speak with specialist organisations such as AT Autism which gives them the opportunity to get more specialist advice.
We also have a page for parent carers that you may find useful as it has been put together by other parent carers.
- Friday 10th February 2023 - 10am-11am, Himalayan Sound Therapy Session with Anjani Devi from Holistic Yoga Shetland
All you need to do is cosy up (lay down or use a chair) and listen to the wonderful sounds created by genuine Himalayan singing bowls, giant symphonic gong, elemental chimes and Indian harmonium accompanied by Sanskrit mantra.
These powerful vibrations are so beneficial for us! And, exceptionally good for releasing any stress or tension held in the body, allowing the deepest level of relaxation, leaving you rested and feeling restored.
All you need to bring is a Yoga mat (there will be some spare ones), a blanket to keep warm, a cushion for your head (and for underneath your knees if that’s something that’d feel good) and something lightweight to cover your eyes with (scarf, eyemask, etc.).
PLEASE NOTE - This therapy isn’t suitable for anyone using a pacemaker, has epilepsy or is in their first trimester of pregnancy.
This session is open to any parent carer with a child with additional needs. This session is for adults only.
Places MUST be booked by emailing Laura on [email protected] by Thursday 9th February 2023 or phoning 01595 743909.
