The My Wellbeing Course, run by our Health Coaches, is designed to provide wellness clients with the tools they need to be able to manage their thoughts, feelings and emotions to have a positive impact on their everyday lives. This 6-week course of 1 hour sessions, provides a mixture of practical work, group discussions, activities, information and resources to equip you with the tools you need to manage your health and wellbeing.

Over the 6 weeks we discuss different aspects of Mental Wellbeing which include:

How we can support you as a carer

Carers Wellbeing sessions

As a service we deliver and support carers through our group sessions, exploring some of the challenges and difficult emotions carers may experience.

Carers and the session facilitators discuss and share different ways to manage challenges, stress levels and ideas and techniques carers can use to improve and support their own physical and emotional wellbeing whilst caring for someone.

Individual support that carers may need can also be provided through the Wellness Service, Carers Trust and our partners Carers Count.
