The heart of our service is the Talk for Health Programme. This is run with groups of up to 12 and teaches:
- How to understand and talk about your own experience and feelings
- How to listen effectively and respond empathically to others
- How to set up an ongoing Talk for Health group
The initial training is 4.5 days over 4 – 6 weeks, during the course of which participants gain a raft of communication skills and instantly improved wellbeing.
The Programme isn’t the end of things: Following the training, participants can set up and attend ongoing Talk for Health peer support groups, and we offer help to do this. Participants find that these groups build their wellbeing and become an invaluable resource for self-reflection, support and achieving life goals.
We also offer a Train the Trainer programme where people can become licensed to lead the Programme inside organisations or companies, and further advanced learning for individuals once they have graduated from the Programme.
