Hello and Welcome!

from Claire Murray, Creator of the Emotion Works programme and founder of Emotion Works CIC

I’m so excited to be finally launching this website and sharing the Emotion Works programme online.

If you’re already familiar with Emotion Works and find it helpful in your work, I know you’ll be excited too!

There’s online training to watch in your own time; there are over 100 digital resources for you to browse and download; and our growing bank of practice ideas and examples is certain to inspire you towards more successes with Emotion Works. There’s also information about our practitioner and trainer accreditation programmes, including some very helpful case examples from people who’ve been through the process already.

Thanks so much to everyone who contributed to this creation. I’m really very proud of us all!
