Thriving Facilitators

Thriving Facilitators

Are you a heart-centred practitioner - change-worker, lecturer, artist & social/health-care worker? Are you committed to supporting others in the service of social change? Do you work in challenging settings with vulnerable groups with little support or are left feeling isolated and overwhelmed? We know that such experiences can create doubt, anxiety, and feelings of not being good enough. This can lead to valuable practitioners leaving professions they once loved.

Thriving Facilitators offers a super supportive community, affordable support and coaching so you can confidently show up as 'you' and lead social change without burning out.

The next intake will open in September 2020. Sign up here for updates - www.thrivingfacilitators.com

In the meantime why not join the FREE facebook group 'The Thriving Facilitators FREE Community' 

Here's what some of our new members say:

"amazing value and well worth it. I really encourage my community arts community to join"

"been looking for support for facilitators for ages and always hit a blank. Excited that this is about to change"

"Thriving Facilitators is a safe and encouraging space that provides support and mentoring for its members ..."
