Learn to Talk for a Fit Mind
Learn to Talk for a Fit Mind with Talk for Health: Peer Counselling Skills
In today’s society, it is all too to feel lonely and disconnected from other and this can have a negative impact on our mental health and the quality of our life.
Here 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 and that this is why we run our 4.5 day wellbeing programme: 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 mental health.
We invite you to come and enjoy a two hour taster session of our programme, which is FREE, to find out if it is right for you.
The taster will give you a chance to experience some of the four key learning areas of our full programme:
- Open and truthful talking
- Empathic listening
- Basic counselling skills
- Building supportive relationships
Come join us and learn how to talk to for a fit mind!
