This specialist course explores the concept of balancing life’s pressures and stressors with positive mindful bread baking activity, to create a therapeutic experience.
This one-day course adopts baking to demonstrate how activity can be relaxing, mindful, a coping mechanism and a strategy for maintaining an equilibrium.
The course has been specifically developed by a qualified teacher who worked for many years as a mental health professional. The course is ideal for those wishing to explore the subject of therapeutic baking for themselves and for those planning to support others with therapeutic baking.
Participants will explore the “5 Ways to Wellbeing” and learn to plan how to incorporate this approach into everyday life. A range of other concepts and theories supporting positive mental health combine with hands on baking, each participant taking home the all they have baked throughout the day.
