The Pesso Boyden Bursary Fund
This has been started by someone who had a structure with me (Juliet), and ‘gets’ the benefit of Pesso Boyden work, and the impact that it has. In PBSP we provide healing interactions so that the soul and the ego can develop in harmony. As Bessel Van Der Kolk notes in his book, The Body Keeps The Score, PBSP is invaluable for early damage created by minor (or serious) neglect, parents who were not really as loving as they should have been, and trauma.
I have been given £5,000 to use for small bursaries of £100 each, to people who would love to join one of my ongoing groups, or a residential with me. It is for people who are really motivated to make changes, but genuinely cannot afford to pay the full rate. As at 15 May 2019 I have about £700 left.
Applicants should email firstname.lastname@example.org with a one page of A4 answering the following questions
1) What attracts you to PBSP
2) How ready do you feel to change
3) Please give brief details of your financial situation, and why you cannot afford to pay the full fee for the workshop
4) Which ongoing group or workshop you would like to attend (the list of available workshops is at www.therapyandcounselling.co.uk)
5) Your name, phone number (landline and mobile), address and email
If anyone else feels like adding a small donation to this, even £10 helps, it would be much appreciated, and will be used to help people who want to attend PBSP sessions but are unable to afford it.
I also want to acknowledge the person who used to occasionally give me £1,000 to subsidise people who could not pay for themselves. Huge thanks for that. Now, I am able to put this on a more solid footing. I would love to be able to offer a few people help every year.
And the person who recently gave me £500 to subsidise someone who needs it.
As one of my clients said to me recently, this work is life-changing. And how lovely that someone is willing to fund this therapy for people who they don’t know and will never meet. THANK YOU to the anonymous donor!!!
