How we help

Healthy Living Workshops

Our Healthy Living Workshops are one or two part information giving sessions based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. For many these are the best place to start experiencing help with your wellbeing. These workshops are designed to help you learn useful coping strategies, which you can put into action to improve the areas of your life, which are impacting on your mood.

You can attend as many workshops as you feel would be useful, although we do recommend leaving a break of a few weeks between each one. This is so you can put in place the learning from each session, between sessions.

The groups are informal and relaxed and often involve a qualified therapist talking through a powerpoint presentation with some group discussion for those who wish to join in.

It is ok to be shy and just listen and there is no pressure to disclose any personal or difficult information.

“There was a positive vibe to the group. It made me feel more positive about the way I feel. Knowing that day to day things can help is really good and hopefully can be a stepping stone. Thank you”
