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

About this event

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 T4H Cafes: 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 Cafe, 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 info@talkforhealth.co.uk.

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.

Organiser Talk for Health

Organiser of Talk for Health Taster: Learn to Talk for a Fit Mind

Talk for Health is a social enterprise that demystifies effective therapeutic talk, making it accessible to all. We make group peer to peer counselling something we can all do - whether for our own wellbeing, to help others, or both.

 

We are continuing with all our training and ongoing peer groups online throughout the coronavirus pandemic. Participants can join us using their mobiles, laptops or tablets.  Those without an internet connection or smartphone can dial in using regular mobile phones or landlines.

 

How does it work?

We provide initial training programmes that teach group peer to peer counselling skills and give you plenty of space to reflect on your own life.  After training, Talk for Health Graduates gain access to free, monthly, ongoing groups for wellbeing, as well as occasional advanced learning groups and further training.

 

Further training is provided for Graduates to become trainers of the initial training programmes and/or facilitators of on-going groups. 

 

All these free activities are made possible by funding from the Islington Clinical Commissioning Group as well as two grant-funding bodies. Some programmes are for Islington and Camden residents only, due to ICCG funding, but others are open to all.

 

We also run special events that are open to everyone and hope to see you at one of our programmes or events soon.
