What are Wellbeing Workshops?
Wellbeing Workshops are short educational sessions for small groups of people. They are designed to engage and inspire, providing insights, tools and techniques to help participants develop motivation and personal effectiveness, and to make informed and sustainable choices about their wellbeing. There are 5 wellbeing workshops available, each lasting no longer than 3 hours. Participants can attend all workshops or just the workshops they would find useful.
What are the benefits of the workshops?
- The course is not a therapy or treatment so is open to everyone.
- As the course is educational, it would not interfere with any therapy / counselling you may have had or be engaged in.
- The course educates you to manage your wellbeing in the best possible way.
- You will be provided with information and activities to help you think about your wellbeing in new ways and give you tools to move forward.
- The group setting allows for ideas to be shared but you will not focus on individual problems and you will not need to share personal information.
- The course allows you to meet people and become part of a supportive group.
- Everyone can gain something from the course and it is designed to be interesting, useful and fun!
What will be covered on each workshop?
Coping with Anxiety – We will look at the common symptoms of anxiety, what they mean, why you struggle with them and some of the ways in which you can learn to control the effects of anxiety.
Good Thinking – Negative thoughts are experienced by all of us at some time but can be more prevalent and extreme whenever we feel stressed, anxious or depressed. Learning to recognise these thought traps is the first step in overcoming them.
Stress Less – A certain amount of stress can lead to optimum performance, but it can easily tip us over the edge, and is one of the leading causes of absence from work. We will find out more about the causes and effects of stress, and how to develop strategies for keeping control.
Sleep Well – Find out why sleep is so important, and what changes you can make to your routine, behaviour and environment to improve the quality of your sleep.
Bounce Back – People who are resilient or have the ability to ‘bounce back’ in a positive and creative way after encountering problems, show lower levels of depression and are more likely to be able to self-motivate. We will explore more ways in which we can develop and hone this key trait.
