Coming out of Lockdown – Feeling Anxious? Zoom Workshop Tuesday 25th May, 11-12.20pm

The thought of things going ‘back to normal’, seeing friends in crowded places, going back to the office, attending family gatherings and travelling on public transport may feel overwhelming, sound tiring and fill you with anxiety. This workshop will provide a welcoming space and opportunity for you to talk about your fears with others and discuss ways which may help you.

 

Setting Goals and Moving Forward. Zoom Workshop

Tuesday 15th June, 11-12.30pm

During lockdown you may have had the chance to think about new things you would like to try or achieve in your life when restrictions are lifted or you may feel that lockdown has made you retreat into your comfort zone and you can’t find any motivation to make change, whether it be to look for a new job, join a social group or take better care of your health to name a few. This workshop will give you the opportunity to talk about your goals with others and learn ways to break them down into small achievable steps as well as inspire each other!

Paper-based postal versions of workshops are also available.
