New online workshops for COVID-19 support

free online workshops for COVID-19 support

We are offering free one-hour online workshops addressing a range of concerns during COVID-19.

These workshops are based on Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), an evidence based therapy used widely in the NHS, and there will be discussions on how to face difficulties with lockdown in a practical way. It’s an opportunity for you to meet others with similar experiences to you and discover that you are not alone and you can share as much or as little as you would like.

There are opportunities for you to ask questions throughout the online workshops and points where verbal discussion will be invited. Here are the topics that are currently available:

Living Well during COVID with a Long-Term Condition

Having a long term health condition (such as diabetes, respiratory or cardiac conditions) during this pandemic can bring extra challenges to our ability to manage our health and wellbeing. This one-hour online workshop covers a range of ideas to support you during social distancing or isolation. Here we discuss topics such as: managing worries about our health and COVID, continuing to move with a meaningful routine during isolation, how to decipher information about COVID and much more.

Dates: Every Monday from 10am to 11am and Friday from 2pm to 3pm

Managing anxiety and worry during a pandemic

We know that during COVID, we may find ourselves worrying about a range of issues coming up with the pandemic and feeling increasingly overwhelmed or anxious. This one-hour online workshop discusses tools to help support you with this including; managing worries about COVID, looking after yourselves, coping with the increased uncertainty the pandemic presents and evaluating the information you read about COVID.

Dates: Every Tuesday from 10am to 11am and Thursday from 2pm to 3pm

Maintaining wellbeing during isolation

Life in isolation presents many challenges to our wellbeing; not being able to continue with many of the activities that would be meaningful to us. It’s therefore easy to notice difficulties in motivating ourselves or a drop in mood. This one-hour online workshop covers tools to help build a meaningful routine while in isolation, problem solve specific difficulties and manage hopeless thoughts we might have about the pandemic.

Dates: Every Monday from 3pm to 4pm and Wednesday from 10am to 11am

Parenthood During COVID

Life during the pandemic is already stressful, but being a parent or going through pregnancy can add extra challenges to your wellbeing at this time. This one-hour online workshop is aimed at parents and women going though pregnancy and covers a range of topics such as: creating a well-rounded family routine, how to talk to children about COVID, managing worries about giving birth or COVID and being kind to ourselves if things don’t go to plan.

Dates: Every Monday from 2pm to 3pm and Thursday from 10am to 11am
