Type 1 Diabetes Support Workshop


This 6-hour workshop explores practical ways to manage the stress and emotional challenges involved in parenting a child or children with Type 1 diabetes.  The day will be experiential and interactive as well as gentle and nurturing.  There will be plenty of practical tools to take away.

A willingness to openly explore and share with others will be necessary.  Each group will have between eight and sixteen members.


The day will be adapted to suit the particular needs of the group but will likely include:






As a mother of a child with Type 1, I know how challenging and how painful it can be to live with Type 1 diabetes in the home.  As an experienced psychotherapist, I will gently guide the day as each person explores their unique challenges and feels the support of the group.
