After attending multiple workshops with our Positive Minds service, John wrote a short poem about his experience with the service. John tells us:
I think a lot of poetry, but rarely write it down. During the first minute of the final session of the 5 Ways to Wellbeing course, I quickly jotted down a couple of lines that had popped into my head and the final 2 lines of my very short poem followed on quite fluidly. Although short, it really reflects on my own personal experiences and feelings from the point of being a little 'lost' or 'detached' from the rest of the world and then reaching out and finding the right help and kindness from a group of understanding and non-judgemental people.
Positive Minds has helped me through a series of courses to help reset my mind and have more recognition and control over the challenges I find in day to day life. Should anyone feel the need to seek help, Positive Minds will always get my vote of approval.
Just a final say from me, please give a giant thank you to both Gaby and Deyzi for their genuine interest in what I (and others) had to say and for their patience and professionalism while doing so.
Sometimes when we have lost our way,
and cannot find the words to say.
We connect up to someone kind,
and end up with a positive mind.
