About this Event
***Please note: you must be able to attend all dates listed below to join this programme***
In today’s society it is all too easy to feel lonely and disconnected from others and this can have a negative impact on our emotional health and the quality of our life.
At Talk for Health we know that true connection happens when we let go of our social masks and start being who we really are. This is why we run our Intros and Full Programmes: to help you feel more connected to yourself and other people.
Our Programme teaches the skills of authentic talking, empathic listening and managing a group. This enables all our graduates to go on and join or set up their own ongoing groups for connection and wellbeing. Without the need for professional therapists – which is why we call them peer-to-peer support groups. We believe that by learning these basic skills, people can support each other and make a real positive difference to their emotional health.
On the Full Talk for Health Peer Counselling Programme, you will deepen your knowledge and skills as well as have space to practice the four key learning areas of Talk for Health:
- Open and truthful talking
- Empathic listening
- Basic counselling skills
- How to set up an ongoing group
Come join us and learn how to talk to for a fit mind!
