What happens when we let go of our social masks and start being who we really are? Connection.

About this event

Please note: This taster is aimed at mental health professionals & peer workers working in NELFT (North East London Foundation Trust) , as well as residents living in Havering, Redbridge, Waltham Forest and Barking & Dagenham.

In today's society it is all too easy to feel lonely and disconnected from others and this can have a negative impact on our emotional 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. This is why we run our Tasters, Full Programmes and on-going groups to help you feel more connected to yourself and other people.

We invite you to come and enjoy a Taster session, 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
  • How to set up an ongoing group to take care of your own wellbeing and enable others to do so

Come join us and learn how to talk to for a fit mind!

After the Taster, you can go straight into a Talk for Health on-groups where you will learn peer counselling skills as well as have plenty of space to talk and get/give support. You can also sign up to the Full 4-day Talk for Health Peer Counselling Programme to deepen your knowledge, skills, and get even more space to share.

If you have any questions, or are unable to sign-up using Eventbrite, please call or text 'call me' on 02034 093201 or email
