  •  Are you currently in a caring role?
  • Do you need help looking after your own wellbeing?

 This seven-week interactive course will help you to develop new skills focusing on your own mental health and wellbeing and will give you the tools you need to look after yourself.

Modules include:

  • Improving self-care
  • Dealing with feelings
  • Changing unhelpful thinking
  • Concluding with putting it all together

It’s important you attend the taster session on to learn more about what the course entails and level of commitment needed.

There’s a maximum of five learners – so this will be on a first come, first served basis!

If you are interested in registering – please contact Kathryn Hines 07425 737 334 or Kinza Malik on 07501 661 422

Here’s one of our learner’s testimonies that has recently completed the course:-

“I was hesitant at first to attend the RSTC as I didn’t feel I needed to; however, I am so pleased I went ahead.  The course has really helped me to identify areas in my life that I was neglecting. I thought I was coping, but I quickly realised as the course went on, that I wasn’t caring for my own needs, and that I needed to take more care of myself to enable me to be healthy and strong enough to care for others.   The tutors were excellent, and I felt able to share my feelings with them and the group in the knowledge that everything we spoke about was confidential. The tutors and the group also contributed their experiences which was really helpful as it made me realise that I was not on my own, and they also offered up solutions which had helped them to cope, which in turn I have used in my own life.

If anyone is thinking about attending this course and are feeling reluctant or apprehensive about it, I would highly recommend you do. I have felt so much better after attending and I have continued to work on practising the techniques they have given me to cope with things, on both a personal and a practical level”

Barbara Smith – December 2021

This course has taught me that there are no deadlines to your learning and that even though I’m older now, there’s always things to learn and new ways of putting these into practice.  There are sections which I thought weren’t relevant at first, but I still managed to take some ideas that worked.

This course has been very good for me I’m so glad I did it, it’s been a very pleasant journey! 

I’m so grateful to Kinza and Kathrine.
