Christmas Course Dates

Here is our Recovery College programme for November and December 2019

Starting in November…

Vision Board - Tuesday 19th and 26th November, 2pm – 4pm. Vision Boards allow us to take our dreams, goals and ambitions and make them into a visual. Literally, a vision board is any sort of board on which you display images that represent whatever you want to be, do or have in your life. No artistic abilities are necessary, but feel free to bring along photos and props that represent your future self.

Starting in December…

Art to Recovery - Rediscover the five senses – Sight, Sound, Touch, Taste and Smell. Self-expression and communication through motivational art making activities.  Starts Monday 2rd December, 10am – 12pm. Then Monday 9th and 16th December.

Understanding Bipolar - There are many misconceptions about bipolar disorder, a lifelong disorder characterised by often persistent highs and persistent lows.  Monday 2nd December, 2pm – 4pm.

The Confidence Gap - Do you or someone you know feel like your confidence is holding you back? This 3-week course will help you explore what confidence really is and how to work towards it.  Starts Wednesday 4th December, 2pm – 4pm. Then Wednesday 11th and 18th December.

Understanding Pain – Mind Body - Modern medical approaches to chronic pain have not been dramatically successful. Therefore, it is generally assumed that chronic pain will never go away, so the best we can do is to cope with it. Scientific advances in understanding the brain reveal that many times the pain is literally "in the brain".  This is an opportunity to learn a bit more about the process of pain in relation to the mind body connection.  Monday 9th December, 2pm – 4pm.
