About this event

These ongoing, online workshops are a safe space to explore the complexities, psychology and importance of racial, historical and cultural trauma.

This session, we will be looking at the topic of self-love & self-care, understanding the importance of prioritizing ourselves as part of regular routine. We will be using art therapy exercises to cultivate loving-kindness in ourselves and for others, an important part of healing - not just racial trauma - but trauma overall.

You will:

- Explore the ideas around self-care, self love and how racial and cultural identity issues in Eurocentric environments impacts this

- Understand the importance of our own experiences of love and care from others, from ourselves, in forming our sense of self-worth, racial and cultural acceptance

- Use art therapy tools and exercises to cultivate and deepen loving-kindness for self

- Practice skills that you can use when you need to after the workshop to continue your self-love journey

- Establish a sense of belonging and community within the workshop

About the host

Kia ora, my name is Tanisha. I identify as a racialized black female of Caribbean and European heritage, born and raised in the UK where I originally trained in Art Psychotherapy. Currently living in New Zealand, I work with a large range of individuals from Maori, Pasifika, African, Asian, Middle Eastern and pakeha clients in-person. I also facilitate counselling work online with clients from all over the world, most of whom are in need of a therapist that can offer a safe, creative and comfortable space to explore issues around racial and cultural identity. My clients, along with my own passions and experiences with this subject, are the reason I have created these series of workshops.
