“DO NOT let circumstances get the better of you, instead take steps to change your future” were the words of encouragement from counsellor Heather Price.

Heather is coming to Emerald this weekend to host workshops that deal with recovering from life after trauma, grief and loss, and becoming aware of the seasons of change.

“I am looking to help as many people as I can. My target audience is anyone feeling lost or overwhelmed by circumstances,” Heather said.

“The workshops are for anybody who has gone through trauma, loss, crisis, change and people who are interested in living more consciously and to feel empowered.”

Heather said the workshops would incorporate practical aspects and have opportunities for interaction between those who attend.

“It’s a heart-warming opportunity to share and listen to stories of hope and change and learn the tools to be taken to manage stress and use it create dreams and visions for the future,” she said.

“It is to support people to broaden their perspectives and to understand fear is a part of life and can be put in its place. It doesn’t have to rule in decisions.

“I help people envision their future and change.”

The workshops aim to alter perspectives so that mindsets are optimistic and open to change. Heather said she would share from her experiences to validate others’ experiences.

“I thought it was time to support the bush community and help out from where I am,” she said.

“Resilience is important but remember not to suppress, I give people light and hope.”

The workshops are on this Friday and Saturday and entry by a gold coin.
