FCLP

Our Community Leader Tanja, was selected by Facebook for a Community Leadership Award

In October 2018 we were recognised by Facebook as “one of the 115 most inspiring communities in the world” and our Founder Tanja Sharpe was invited to take part in a year long Facebook Community Leadership Program as a Facebook Fellow! This includes kick starter funding for our Big Ripple Project which we launched in February!

Our Big Ripple Project - Creative Therapeutic Skills Shares in the UK

Our Big Ripple project launched in February and we now host 40 annual networking & creative counselling skills shares across the UK. We cover themes such as working creatively with masks, painting, nesting dolls, miniatures, sand, clay, movement, music, and animals to help YOU to confidently integrate creative exploration of emotions and experiences within your client work. You receive a CPD certificate for any skills shares that you attend! Team members Tanja, Evie & Dee travelled to meet with our members in Belfast and Essex to take part in their skills shares. These sessions were facilitated by Pauline, Eilish & Claire and we worked with animals, nesting dolls, masks and mandalas!

In 2019 we launched our online membership hub where we inspire and connect members through online CPD, training & networking for like-minded counsellors who are drawn to working creatively! You get access to online skills shares around working creatively with trauma & dissociation, self-harm, gaming addictions, timelines and dreams & symbolism to name just a few.

Group Highlights

We were recognised by Facebook as “one of 115 most inspiring communities in the world” and have been a part of the Facebook Community Leadership Program! This program aims to provide us as a community with training, support to grow and a platform to reach out to counsellors all around the world so we can spread our movements message

The team visited Facebook HQ in London to spend a day with other community leaders! We were asked to run a creative therapeutic skills share for 100 + Facebook staff and community leaders. We worked with masks, mind maps and group shares to explore mental health topics

Our Chester conference welcomed 60+ members to explore working creatively with your Inner Child & how to successfully market your private counselling practice. Ofcourse, we like to make sure that we have fun! So this amazing photo booth brought out the cheeky side of our members. Admin Evie definately embraced her Inner Child as a yellow bird
