Lecture I gave in London on the 14th March 2017
- This lectureillustrates the connections between mind, body and emotions. It was held at the Conway Hall in Red Lion Square London, where Adler himself lectured during the 1930s. Monthly lectures have been held there since the 1950s. The lecture outlined the way the Adlerian approach to wellbeing can be enhanced by Breath~Body~Mind practices that bring balance to the nervous system, soothing anxieties and fears and promoting feelings of inner strength and wellbeing. Adler rcognised the holistic nature of human beings and developed the concept of organ jargon. Integrating the breath, body and mind provides us with the essential skills for wellbeing and getting to where we want to be in life.
Is this the time for change?
My name is Margaret Wadsley. My approach is holistic which means I also offer individual yoga and breath~body~mind and relaxation sessions on request. I provide a safe, understanding environment and a non-judgemental relationship.
- Life could be getting you down. Stress, is the challenge that faces us all, leading to depression/anxiety. Many parents often feel concern for children's and teens' emotional wellbeing in these high pressure times.
- When children's or young people's behaviour becomes of concern parents often contact me about issues such as school attendance, unhappiness, bullying, untidiness, defiance, risky relationships, homework not getting done, too much time on electronic devices or a lack of self-discipline. Sometimes a previously happy child or teenager is seen to undergo a change of character with no obvious reason for the change.
- A family under stress can mean that relationships are suffering.
- Perhaps, as parents, you feel a need for support that improves relationships and as a way to make positive changes leading to wellbeing and a letting go of feeling stuck and confused.
- Family break-up can be challenging for all the family, often accompanied by a sense of loss and confusion. Counselling and psychotherapy helps people rediscover their place in a different world. Support for parents plays an important part in therapeutic support for children and teens, according to parent and child/young person's wishes
