September 26, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:15 pm
Southwark Wellbeing Hub has partnered with Talking Therapies Southwark to offer a ten week Mindfulness for Health programme for anyone living with a long term physical health condition affecting their psychological wellbeing.
This group is suitable for those who would like to learn mindfulness and meditation techniques in order to better cope with the difficulties arising from their physical health condition. To attend this programme, you will need to be:
- Motivated and able to attend regularly
- Comfortable in a group of around 8-12 people
- Interested in learning about mindfulness and meditation
- Able to commit to at least half an hour of home practice every day
Previous attendees have said:
“I have personally benefitted with being able to focus more in the moment and to be in control of my mind a bit more from our meditation sessions. I have my self-confidence back – before I felt I lost myself with my illness.”
“Since I have started the programme I have 1) become more confident 2) I am reaching out more to my friends and family 3) I am not feeling too depressed 4)I am going out more on my own and not feeling isolated 5) handling my situation much better.”
If you would like to participate in this group, Southwark Psychological Service Therapies will need to confirm your eligibility for the group. To find out more or to begin the enrolment process, please contact Joy Matthews at the Southwark Wellbeing Hub.
