Is it time to Think Dif­fer­ently?

Midweek Visiter - - St Joseph’s Hospice -

FED up with what life is throw­ing at you? Want to change how you deal with sit­u­a­tions?

Then the Think Dif­fer­ently, Cope Dif­fer­ently course de­liv­ered by Liv­ing Well Sefton, the well­be­ing or­gan­i­sa­tion, could be what you need.

Run­ning over five weeks, the course is for peo­ple ex­pe­ri­enc­ing anx­i­ety, low mood or stress, and aims to in­spire peo­ple to build re­silience and give them the skills needed to cope with ev­ery­day liv­ing. It co­in­cides with the 30 Days of Sefton in Mind cam­paign which aims to cre­ate a pos­i­tive men­tal health map of lo­ca­tions and ser­vices in Sefton that help pro­mote peace of mind.

Liv­ing Well men­tors Natasha Wilks­berg and David Mar­tin-Corkill are de­liv­er­ing the pro­gramme which is based on the five ways to well­be­ing: con­nect, learn, take no­tice, be ac­tive and give.

Natasha said: “Be­ing on the course will help peo­ple to think pos­i­tively as well as learn stress man­age­ment skills.”

And David added: “Peo­ple will gain con­fi­dence and see their fu­ture in a more pos­i­tive light.”

The ses­sions are at the Life Rooms in South­port start­ing Thurs­day, Septem­ber 27, 1-3pm.

To book your place call the Liv­ing Well Sefton team on 0300 323 0181.

Liv­ing Well Sefton has more Think Dif­fer­ently, Cope Dif­fer­ently cour­ses planned for later this year.

Think Dif­fer­ently, Cope Dif­fer­ently helps peo­ple deal with ev­ery­day life
