This is our current timetable. 

Beneath the timetable is a breakdown of each service and their costs - you can book your place on any of them via the links below or by visiting our shop here. Please ensure when you are booking your workshop or course you chose the correct one based on the date, time or age category.

The workshops with dates on will run every 6-weeks on a loop (the new dates will be updated when the current ones begin) but everything else is weekly. This timetable will pause every school holiday and resume when the children return to school  - this is due to wellness camps being hosted when the children are off. For more details on these please visit here.

 

If you have any requests for mental health and wellness support please let us know and we will try to fit it into the next timetable.

Child mental health and resilience building workshops

If your child struggles socially, finds it difficult to make or maintain friendships, worries often, gets easily stressed, struggles to control their temper, has/is self-harming, has suffered any type of bereavement or trauma or generally you find them to be very sensitive - then these sessions are perfect for them.

We understand no child is the same, some have very different needs to the next and because of this there is no “one size fits all” in the way of mental health support.

Our sessions will be designed specifically around the children who attend, with a mixture of mental health and emotional resilience learning, opportunities to build on their social and communication skills and some arts and crafts thrown in for fun - each child will gain invaluable knowledge and applicable skills that will help them through any issues they may be facing or have to face in the future.

There are only ever 12 children at a time on each age category, so for any children who are socially anxious it is a smaller, more intimate group.

£30 deposit to be paid here (which allows your child a one-hour session with a therapist to asses them so we can ensure they get the best support from the groups) and then the sessions are £10 a week which you can pay when you drop them off. There is no time limit to how long your child can come for!

Lets talk about sex - 6-week adult workshop

The promotion of health and well-being is an important part of our growing populations education, as is promoting Relationship and Sex Education (RSE). However, there is a local and potentially nationally gap in the market; who is prepared to talk about sex? Whether it is parent to their child or a doctor to their patient, the subjects surrounding relationships and sex are brushed under the carpet.

This workshop is ran by a lady called  Jane who is currently studying a Sexual Health Studies degree at the University of Central Lancashire.

If you have any issues surrounding relationships or sex due to mental health problems, medication, chronic illness, a life changing medical diagnosis or any other reason, this workshop is a safe, friendly and non judgemental environment for you to access the psychological and educational support you may need to work through these issues.

A 9-hour CPD certificate will be awarded on completion.

The 6-week workshop is £60.

Lets talk about sex - 6-week parent workshop

Sex, the word no parent really wants to hear in the same sentence as their child's name... unfortunately, at some point, this becomes inevitable. Having open and honest conversations with your child about their bodies, puberty, contraception and sex can not only keep them safe and stop misunderstandings, but it can also strengthen your relationship with them!!  With this in mind, we also totally understand that it can still be awkward if you don't quite know HOW to approach it!

This workshop is ran by a lady called  Jane who is currently studying a Sexual Health Studies degree at the University of Central Lancashire.

 

Jane works with groups of individuals with an aim to increase their knowledge and confidence in topics such as contraception, unplanned pregnancy and sexual health. Her ability to connect with a wide variety of individuals and establish trusting relationships, along with strong communication skills, positions her to teach people on topics such as hygiene, drug abuse prevention, sexual health, physical exercise and nutrition, while emphasising the importance of physical and mental health and exploring ways to lead more healthy lives.

The aim of these sessions are to develop your knowledge and ability to influence your health and the health of your children and communities. This will be achieved through exploration of various issues, dilemmas and innovations in health promotion and relationship and sex education. The workshop aims to provide advice to parents on sexual health, the precautions including contraception, any diseases that can be caught and treatments available, but most importantly, HOW to talk to your children when having these difficult conversations.

 

The 6-week workshop is £60.

The right side of Chronic - Support for living with a chronic medical condition (adults)

Just because you have a diagnosis and are taking the correct medication for a chronic medical condition doesn't mean that living with it day to day isn't difficult. From fibromyalgia to cardiovascular diseases, smoking-related health issues to diabetes, arthritis to asthma, we understand living with some of these conditions can not only be life-limiting but also at times frustrating. Our support network will give you a chance to meet other people who have the same difficulties and build a connection with people that understand how you feel. We will have sessions with visits from nurses and other medical professionals who will be able to advise you on different methods of coping with your problems and possibly living a much fuller life - regardless of your chronic condition.

All sessions will have a minimum of one mental health practitioner on hand for advice and professional support.

Free to attend, just show up.

This is me - Support for lifelong mental health conditions

Have you been diagnosed with a personality disorder? Or do you have Bi-polar or complex PTSD? Conditions like this are lifelong and often the difficult part of accepting this is that they are part of who you are. We want to help people embrace that. Come along and meet other people in a similar situation and see if you can learn new coping techniques or self-soothing methods to help you accept that 'this is me!'

All sessions will have a minimum of one mental health practitioner on hand for advice and professional support.

There is no such thing as a perfect parent!! – 6-week behaviour management and parenting workshop

One of the biggest challenge’s a parent can face is managing difficult or defiant behaviour on the part of children. Whether they’re refusing to put on their shoes or throwing full-blown tantrums, you can find yourself at a loss for an effective way to respond (after all we are all human!!!)

For parents at their wit's end, behavioural therapy techniques can provide a road map to calmer, more consistent ways to manage problem behaviours and offer a chance to help children develop gain the developmental skills they need to regulate their own behaviours. 

 

These sessions will explore these techniques and how mindfulness parenting can produce fewer negative emotions and more shared positive emotion with their children in difficult conversations.

We know some people may be hesitant to attend these sessions because of social stigma that if you ask for help “you are failing as a parent”, but in all honesty most of us are just winging it!! The aim of these workshop sessions is to learn, share and support each other through what is probably one of the hardest jobs on the planet – being a parent!

A 6-hour CPD certificate will be awarded on completion.

The 6-week workshop is £60.

Enlightened mind

These are beginners’ classes for meditation and mindfulness. 

These are some of the benefits of meditation:

Improved concentration – A clear mind makes you more productive, especially in creative disciplines like writing.

Less bothered by little things – Do you sometimes allow yourself to get upset by little things? It is the nature of the mind to magnify small things into serious problems. Meditation helps us detach. We learn to live in the here and now, rather than worrying about the past or future. We do not worry about meaningless things but see the bigger picture.

Better Health – There have been numerous studies pointing to the health benefits of meditation. The reason is that meditation reduces stress levels and alleviates anxiety. If we can reduce stress, many health benefits follow.

Knowledge of Self – Meditation enables us to have a deeper understanding of our inner self. Through meditation, we can gain a better understanding of our life’s purpose.

If you meditate regularly then you are more than welcome to come as your input could be helpful for your peers, however, we will be starting with the basics. There is a maximum 8 people in the classes plus the instructor.

£5 per week, pay as you come (Please visit here to book your place)

Mums' retreat

Post and pre-natal depression are very real threats for mothers around the world. It can affect married mums, single mums or any other type of mum! We have created this group for mums and female carers of children (pregnant mums too) because no mum should ever feel like she has no one to turn to. Being a mum is exhausting and sometimes if we aren't functioning at our best, we can't be the best for our kids. Come and say hi, meet new people and take a little time out for yourself - you are more than welcome to bring your young children too!!! We have coffee, we have cake and mostly importantly we have very good listening skills. We are all experiencing the same volatile journey that is parenthood and this group is friendly and non-judgemental. All sessions will have a minimum of one mental health practitioner on hand for advice and professional support.

Free to attend, just show up.

All sessions will have a minimum of one mental health practitioner on hand for advice and professional support.
