We’ve been working hard behind-the-scenes to bring you a new 2021 programme of workshops. Each workshop is designed to support your mental wellbeing and act as a safe space to meet other service users and share your experiences.
Self-Compassion and Mindfulness Series
A 4-week series running Mondays, 2pm on Zoom.
What does it mean to be self-compassionate and how does it link to mindfulness? Start building your own toolkit to use in daily life to improve stress, anxious thoughts and low mood. Learn how to reframe self-critical thoughts and be guided through some mindful meditations.
Creative Writing Series
A 4-week series running Thursdays, 12-2pm on Zoom.
In partnership with Wordsmiths – Writing for Wellbeing, these workshops are open to everyone with any level of creative writing experience. Each session focuses on encouraging confidence, creativity and self-expression.
Storytelling is at the heart of the workshops, with the chance to adapt your own thoughts and memories onto the page and share them in a relaxed and welcoming space.
Creative Writing Monthly Meetup
A monthly meetup with Wordsmiths – Writing for Wellbeing open to everyone with any level of creative writing experience. An opportunity for you to work on your writing and share it in a safe and welcoming space.
*Please note that you do not need to have attended our Creative Writing workshop series.
A weekly workshop running every Wednesday, 10:30am-12:30pm at Surrey Docks Farm. Currently fully booked – join our waiting list by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join us at Surrey Docks Farm, a working community city farm located in the heart of Rotherhithe, to garden for wellbeing. These practical therapeutic sessions are based on the principles of nature, meaningful activity and social interaction. Explore a range of plants including vegetables, look after the gardens on the Thames Path and enjoy the Wildlife Garden.
The workshops run at the Southwark Wellbeing Hub are a welcoming and safe space for all who are in need of wellbeing support. We understand that often unexpected circumstances may mean you have to cancel last minute. However we ask that you give whenever possible, as much notice as possible with a minimum of 24 hours’ notice when you can’t attend a workshop. You don’t have to give an explanation – it is not a problem if you’re just not feeling up for it, but we need at least 24 hours in order to fill your space.
If you do not show up on more than three occasions without 24 hours’ notice, we will unfortunately have to give the space away to others and your place will not be guaranteed. This is to ensure equal opportunities for all and to avoid cancellation of entire workshops.
To give notice for non-attendance, please contact Amy Hodgkinson, Wellbeing Workshop Co-ordinator via text or email: 07597 575546 | email@example.com.
If you do not receive a response from Amy you can also contact the Hub via email or phone: 020 3751 9684 | firstname.lastname@example.org.
Start your own!
If you’ve always wanted to run your own support group or workshop but haven’t had the means to do so, we can help. We’re looking for facilitators to help run our Wellbeing Workshop programme. Our Wellbeing Workshop Coordinator will support you throughout the process of developing your own group or workshop, encouraging your confidence and creativity along the way.
If you are interested, pitch us an idea at email@example.com.
