For those of you who have been on our Mental Health First Aid trainings you will know that self-care is at the heart of what we do here at This Way up Well Being. We believe we must be goal models, so from taking a break each day for lunch or just tea with a friend, if we cannot take care of “ourselves” we cannot look after others so we must put on our own oxygen mask before we can help those who need us and who are vulnerable. Hey, and we all need help at times don’t we.
The “ For me club” is a space for you to find things that will help you and make you happy, it’s a safe space to relax and learn to release negative thoughts, and feelings and through the techniques we use you can unblock dislodged stress and trauma and bring about deep relaxation and healing. We offer many different stress relief strategies because we are all unique and as individuals will benefit from a variety of interventions. So come along and find what works for you.
