Monday 12th October - 6pm: Mindfulness

It's easy to get caught up in a pattern of swirling thoughts—thinking about a laundry list of things that need to be done, ruminating on past events, or could-be situations of the future—and learning mindfulness can help. But what exactly is mindfulness?

It can be defined as a mental state that involves being fully focused on "the now" so you can acknowledge and accept your thoughts, feelings, and sensations without judgment. Mindfulness meditation is a mental training practice that teaches you to slow down racing thoughts, let go of negativity, and calm both your mind and body.

Wednesday 14th October - 2.30pm: Self Care

Please join us for our second session with Abbie Fish, we’ve already covered Life in Lockdown, this time we’ll reflect on how we really feel about, and the barriers to, taking care of ourselves as our first priority.

We all know we need to do it, but how? We'll chat about different ways to Self-Care for your mind, body and soul, that go deeper than the stereotypical self-care bubble bath!

You'll be guided to explore the most supportive self-care for you as an individual, so that you can enjoy a healthier, happier lifestyle (which overflows to those you
care for).

Abbie is a Self-Care Coach who supports people to put their own health and happiness first, for the benefit of themselves AND their loved ones.

In a society that has brought us up feeling that Self-Care is selfish, Abbie believes that a Self-First approach is win-win and actually essential for our collective health. Abbie offers 121 Coaching and Self-Care sessions which are relaxed, informal and have a focus on discovering what works for you as an individual.

Thursday 22nd October - 3pm: Post Lockdown Anxiety

The pandemic has had a huge impact upon us all in differing ways. However, there are some amongst us for whom this has created great anxieties - firstly with the lockdown and the changes we had to make, and now with the easing of lockdown, the changes we are facing again. There is a level of anxiety that is being felt alongside this easing and it is hoped through this webinar we will have the opportunity to help you address some of those anxious feelings, whilst allowing you the opportunity to explore your own feelings about the situation and what it means to you.
