Anxiety Series

Featuring both Green and Blue coloured sessions, our anxiety series has been created to explore different aspect of anxiety, identifying levels of anxiety, our response to it, the tools we use and how we gain a sense of empowerment and calm. We will identify different strategies to try out in each session which will help develop our internal resources to better manage our anxiety.

Be Present Series

Spread across our green and blue sessions, our ‘Be Present’ series is an eight session series. These sessions explore the different ways we can achieve a focused awareness.

Combatting Isolation

Loneliness is an epidemic of our times. This session explores how we can better cope and live with isolation by reconnecting foremost with ourselves. By taking inspiration and ideas from a range of individuals, cultures and professions – from the Dalai Lama to the latest research in Western psychology – this session involves discussion-based and interactive activities to help us reflect on what we currently do and helpful things we might do to reduce a sense of loneliness.

Writing for Wellbeing

In our Writing for Wellbeing sessions, we get in touch with our creative side to explore our world through written word. During a time when we may feel stuck or isolated, writing provides a platform to connect with others and discover a form of freedom through expression. Within this series, we explore and connect with elements of our being: and round off the series with a session dedicated to writing stories on a chosen theme.
