Creative workshops for Mums at Nuture Shed

Who is involved in Nurture Shed? A professional team collaborating under one roof… THE NURTURE SHED is offering services to support families, health and wellbeing.

Sue and Caroline are the owners of Nurture Shed; two Early Years professionals, BA (Hons). Both mothers themselves are passionate about natural play and a safe future for children.

I am Sabine and used to be Caroline’s and Sue’s University lecturer teaching Research and Pedagogy. The idea of this project is based on my own lived experience of mental health issues in Somerset, when diagnosed with Post Partum Psychosis in 2010. Nurture Shed has become my sanctuary from home, where I can grow in confidence and work together with 5 likeminded professionals for this particular project.

AIM: CONNECTING THE THIRD SECTOR NURTURE SHED, WITH SOMERSET PARTNERSHIP, IN ORDER TO HELP MUMS WITH MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES AND SUBSEQUENTLY THEIR FAMILIES

At THE NURTURE SHED we want to welcome all mums with post-natal mental health issues to this group!

  • Our team has a strong professional background, including creativity, Teaching Professionals and learning support, where we would like to support the journey of recovery through creative workshops (child care available whilst mum is enjoying the workshop)

·       We would like to develop our 6 week workshop into a 10 weeks course, where previously acquired therapeutic aspects through arts and craft continue to evolve with a more in depth focus on activities for therapeutic healing (creative writing, emotional painting, meditate, journalise, music therapy, crochet for stress relief etc.) thus offering continuity for personal growth, where individuals’ needs could be scaffolded within a safe and non-judgmental group environment (mums of all ages, different backgrounds and lived experiences).

·       Mums will be able to talk about mental health issues (recovery from PPP, Bi-Polar, Depression, Anxiety Issues etc.) and connect with other like-minded mums, in order to develop a social and emotional support network via peer support, to become confident mums, making friends and helping each other with coping strategies

We would be pleased if you could recommend our services to mums affected by mental health issues. Mums could contact us directly via mail/phone or through your direct referral to Nurture Shed with Caroline or Sue.
