Our newly developed ‘Together Group’ offers free weekly support, available immediately upon referral to anyone who is waiting for their counselling or mentoring service to begin.
The Together Group offers the opportunity for you to access immediate support in the form of an informal weekly peer group (no larger than 10 participants), facilitated by Trish Benson, an experienced therapist and group worker. Its aim is to offer a safe place for you to receive immediate support, at the point of first contact with the Project, whilst you wait for your service of choice to begin.
This welcoming group is a chance for you to meet others who may have similar experiences to yourself. It is built on shared personal experience and empathy, focusing on your strengths and working towards wellbeing and recovery.
The group meets every week at the One to One Project, Nelson House, on Thursday afternoons, between 1.00-2.30pm. Attendance is free of charge and optional each week and there is no obligation for you to join or commit to it over time. Each member is entitled to attend for a maximum of 40 consecutive weeks, however it may be that individuals choose to exit the group when their counselling or mentoring begins.
You are welcome to drop in to this group simply by telephoning Chris (01553 770770) or emailing (email@example.com) to let us know of your intention to attend.
Please refer to the Together Group Leaflet for more details or contact us should you need any further information to help you to decide if this group is for you.
Please note that the group will NOT be meeting on the following dates;
