Making Sense of Your Senses

0407 861 205 or

Do things like the weather, noises, sounds or smells change the way you or someone you know feels?

Would you like to learn some new ways to look after yourself?

Are you interested in learning how physical environments can impact us?

This course brings people together to explore the relationship between our senses and mental health.

You will have the opportunity to experiment with new options for self-care, and learn how environments and external influences can affect us.

Through hands-on experience, you’ll explore your personal sensory preferences and learn how to work with these to improve your mental health (sensory modulation techniques). The course will also look at how sensory preferences can be very different from person to person, encouraging you to become aware of the sensory profiles of other people in your life.

You will also gain some insight into the science behind sensory modulation and hear practical tips to build your own ‘sensory toolbox’ to promote self-care.


This course runs in two parts! Part A is 1 session long and covers an introduction to the topic. Part B is 3 sessions long and goes into more detail.

You MUST have done Part A to go to Part B.
