Making Sense of Wellbeing

Parents have consistently told us that their greatest challenge is coping with anxiety, stress and emotional wellbeing. It is hardly surprising bearing in mind the relentless pressures they are under.

To help parents manage their wellbeing we have developed a new twelve session online course, Making Sense of Wellbeing, which covers issues like managing anxiety, relaxation and self-care, exercises to manage low moods, problem solving, building resilience and positive thinking. The course also offers regular fortnightly sessions to practice mindfulness.

Please see the full course listing below. For further information or to book the individual sessions visit the links (to eventbrite) on each date. You can also see a full listing of dates on our Training Courses flyer.

1-2-1 Counselling

Reaching Families has secured funding to provide short term counselling to parent-carers who have struggled with the emotional impact of the coronavirus pandemic. This project offers 3-6 sessions at a subsidised rate of £10 per session (£5 for parents in receipt of work related benefits). Sessions can be accessed either in person, by phone or zoom.

Counselling is provided by a highly experienced and reputable practice who are registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
