About this Event

Our Phoenix Court café is now a therapeutic writing group. Every 3rd Monday of the month from 4-6pm join us to explore the benefits of writing for therapy.

Research shows writing about a trauma or difficult experience can help people to recover from it faster. And writing is always a surefire way to find out what is really going on inside ourselves.

Many of Talk for Health's facilitators have undertaken training from Dr Wendy Jones (PhD in Creative Writing; author & professor) on how to present and lead writing activities, how to give feedback and how to help you unlock and heal yourselves through the power of writing. You don't need any prior skills, just turn up and see how you like it!


Talk for Health Cafés are open to those who have already attended one of our Tasters or Specials. They provide a safe confidential space where you can come as you feel - you are perfect just the way you are. Haven’t been to a Taster? Click here to see our full list of Tasters and to sign up.

Cafés are our monthly peer-support groups. They don’t actually take place in Cafes (although there will always be tea and biscuits!) Instead, our Cafes are located in closed venues which provide a safe space for sharing. Our Cafes are structured time: everyone will have equal amount of time to share and respond, using the Talk for Health feedback techniques that you started to learn in the Taster session. Sign up is easy, and the groups run on the same day of the week each month (e.g. the 3rd Friday, or 2nd Monday).

You will learn to take care of your emotional health and lift your own and others’ wellbeing through truthful talking and empathic listening. At a Talk for Health Café led by a trained Talk for Health facilitator, you will learn the skills to be able to:

- Talk honestly

- Be listened to without judgement

- Share stories

- Form new connections

Once you’ve attended at least 6 Cafés for 6 months, or completed the full Talk for Health Programme, you’ll be a Talk for Health graduate! This means that you’ll be eligible to attend further leadership trainings and our ‘Chair and Share’ peer support groups.

If you have any questions, or are unable to sign-up using Eventbrite, please call or text 'call me' on 07826 148 461 or email

As we are funded by Camden Giving and Islington NHS we have to give priority to Camden and Islington residents, students, or those with a GP in either of those boroughs. If you live outside of those boroughs we invite you to attend the Taster and we are able to invite you to join the programme if there are unfilled spaces.

Please note that if at any point either before or during the programme facilitators feel that by taking part there is a risk of detriment to your wellbeing then you will not be allowed to continue with the programme. Facilitators will support with suggestions for alternative referrals.

We apologise for the inconvenience, but for legal reasons under eighteens, babies, and animals will not be permitted to attend.

This Café usually takes place at Phoenix Court (2 Brill Place, London, NW1 1DX)  on the third Monday of every month from 4.00 – 6.00 pm, but will be ONLINE for the foreseeable future.
