We offer a variety of relevant mental health and wellbeing topics in these informal sessions, perfect for lunchtimes or as part of your wellbeing activity calendar. Our current bitesize offerings are: 


Beat the Burnout                                                                                                                           We talk a lot about burnout, but what does it actually mean and how can we switch off and relax? This session will give you some practical tips and techniques to take away.

Get Connected                                                                                                                  Connecting is one of the five ways to wellbeing and it’s so important to us, but the past year has changed what, how and who we connect with, we’ll take some time to look at this and how we want to connect in the future.

Dealing with Change                                                                                                                 We’re all feeling differently about restrictions easing, going back into the office and getting back to the things we used to do without a second thought. In this session we look at how we react to change and some techniques and tools to help us deal with it in a positive way.

Looking back and moving forward                                                                                            This session is a chance to reflect on the past year, with a focus on holding on to positive changes as we move forward.


Taking control of your Mental Health and Wellbeing
During uncertain times, all of us feel differently and cope in different ways. This session discusses what mental health and wellbeing is, why they are important in our daily lives and explore practical tools and techniques to take control. 

Examine sleep problems and science behind them. We’ll help you to understand sleep and why it’s so important and run participants through some practical relaxation techniques and tips to help you sleep better.

Looking after your wellbeing – a carers guide                                                                              This year has thrown up many challenges, from ‘lockdown’ to adapting to ‘the new normal ‘. For those of us with caring responsibility it can all start to take its toll on our mental health and wellbeing. Created with parents and carers in mind we take a look at the challenges of caring during Covid-19. We’ll explore self-kindness, the power of reframing, and focusing on what you can control. This session will be interactive and you’ll take away tools that you can continue to use.  

‘Mindfulness’ is a term most of us has heard of but many of us don’t really know what it actually means. This session challenges the misconceptions and explore some simple techniques that can be used in everyday life.

Building Resilience to cope with stress
A look at stress, its triggers and the power of resilience. We’ll help you understand the science behind stress, learn practical resilience skills and help you build your own personal action plan.
