Mental health & wellbeing activities, workshops & courses in Nailsea
It's very common to struggle with your mental health when going through menopause. Difficulties balancing physical symptoms with a busy life, feelings of grief, and hormonal changes are just some of the reasons why this time can be so tough.
If you're experiencing menopause or perimenopause, our new menopause workshops in Nailsea are here to help you find support.
Our workshops include:
Menopause: Support & Relationships - we discuss how to get help during the menopause, from your doctor to your friends and family. We also talk about menopause at work and your employment rights.
Menopause: The Physical & Psychological Effects - we cover the ways the menopause can affect your physical and mental health, the different stages of the menopause, and the treatments available to you.
Wellbeing Space – every Wednesday 1-2pm
Mindful Arts & Crafts – every Wednesday 2-3pm
Back-to-back sessions focused on exploring ways to support our mental wellbeing with a short coffee break in between.
You're welcome to attend both sessions, or just one session if you'd prefer - please book your space in advance here.
In the Wellbeing Space, we decide on a topic as a group then share ideas and experiences with each other in a safe, non-judgmental environment.
In Mindful Arts & Crafts, we explore wellbeing through creative activities. No previous experience needed – this is a friendly, low-pressure space where everyone can get involved and try new activities, from clay modelling, to creative writing, to Zentangling.
