This is for you if: 

  • you are really struggling to get through daily life and would benefit from being around others who understand what you are going through 
  • you want to know more about how anxiety, depression or any form of mental ill health can affect your mind & body, and what you can do to make positive changes 
  • you want to learn how to take practical steps towards recovery, so you can begin to create a future that feels worthwhile and meaningful for you   

Meet in person with others who understand what you are going through, in a safe and supportive environment, so you can learn together and feel more connected while taking steps towards a more confident and satisfying future.  

By coming along to this smallsupportive group, you will: 

  • begin to feel safely connected to people who understand what you are going through and who you can reach out to for encouragement 
  • learn how your mind (neurology) and body (physiology) work closely together to shape your unique responses to stresses and challenges, and how you can use that knowledge to reduce tension and improve your overall wellbeing 
  • learn and practice new habits that will help you develop practical strategies for coping with everyday life, so you can begin to take confident steps towards a more worthwhile and meaningful future
