Tuesday Talk- a small conversation can make a huge difference
Through July, we will talk about mental health continuum. On 13th July 2022, Counselled Nora shared about Illness-wellness continuum, which is an illustration that draws a connection between the illness paradigm and wellness paradigm. Generally, there are (4) phases in mental health continuum such as (1) healthy, (2) reacting, (3) injured and (4) illness. Anyone can check easily which phase you are in and then take action to move to the wellness stage .To know more about illness-wellness continuum and what can you do to keep yourselves well, please enjoy the live : https://www.facebook.com/counsellingcornermyanmar/videos/2982536055371310/

Basic Counselling Skills Training
Why it is useful to study Basic Counselling Skills ?
Do you want an opportunity for Self-Exploration and Self-Discovery in lifetime ? Sometimes, we don’t know about ourselves and we don’t think about our personality, values, and beliefs deeply. As a result, it leads to decrease self-awareness and insight into our own role in the problems we may be facing. The only thing we have to change is “awareness” It encourages us to embark on a personal journey toward personal growth. By studying the fundamental thing of counselling, you may enjoy a safe, non-judgmental, warm, and caring environment plus empathetic understanding, unconditional positive regard, and genuineness. If you’re eager to remove your insecurity about appearance, abilities, skills, or personality traits in your lifetime, register here : https://forms.gle/W4FMhwsCxm6osJvB9
Clay Workshop for All
Do you know touching clay induces stimulating neural input from our sensory senses ? This workshop mainly focus on giving participants the opportunity to describe any and every non-verbal modes of expression via a flexible object. In counselling, by using clay, it allows the counsellors slowly to unfold procedural, non-verbal representations, especially when it involves participants who have a hard time to talk feelings and emotions. On Saturday 2nd July 2022, Counselling Corner organised a 2-hour clay workshop at Kokkoya Organic Farm. See pictures here:
