New opportunity! Group counselling
We are offering a new opportunity to take part in a group counselling program.
People caring for someone with Dementia or Alzheimer’s disease are invited to join our new eight week program where a cognitive behavioural approach will be used to help them have a greater self-awareness through the interaction with others, and develop their coping skills.
The group will offer education and information around the issues raised by the group (such as behavioural issues and feelings of loss and guilt) so you have a better understanding of the of the challenges you are facing as well as knowledge of your personal coping ability, internal and external resources, and your own areas of strength. This will help you to be better able to address difficulties, feel more in control, and have a greater internal capacity to work toward mental and emotional well-being. The cognitive behavioural approach focuses on developing personal coping strategies that target solving current problems and changing unhelpful patterns. Working in a group will also help you to feel less isolated.
The group will meet every Tuesday afternoon from Tuesday 10th July to Tuesday 28th August at a venue most suited to the carers who participate. If you would like to join the group, or find out more please contact Paul by email or by calling 0800 97502131
