Other Information 

• Please bring your own lunch, or you are welcome to visit the ‘Hidden Gem’ café at the Spectrum.  It is normally open on Saturdays between 09:30 and 14:30. The Spectrum Centre promised that if there is a problem with the café on that particular day (they don’t expect any), they would let me know in advance of the workshop.

• I will be assisted by skilled and very experienced psychotherapist, Kasia McMorland. She will be available in case anyone feels the need to have a wee chat during the workshop. Brendan Stephens, my partner and a very experienced long time social worker will also be on hand to assist with various aspects of the workshop.

• Some of my books will be available to purchase during the workshop.
