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!

Workshops, Courses and Groups March 2021

Exploring Personal Values (two-part course)

Tuesday 16th & 30th March, 11am-12.30pm

When we are connected to what’s important to us, we are more likely to have meaning in our lives. Personal values are essential in guiding us to make positive decisions and they support overall wellbeing. In this workshop we will take some time to explore your personal values; consider what is important and identify ways of how we can become more in tune with our values.

Managing Emotions

Tuesday 23rd March, 1.30pm-3.00pm

The past year has been a challenging one for most. Events out of our control have increased feelings of frustration, fear and anxiety and helplessness to overwhelming levels.
