Code: SGC/20/1139 Write Mind: Writing for Wellbeing

Writing can help us pay attention to our emotions and nurture our wellbeing, one small step at a time.

In this bitesize taster workshop we’ll use words to create a calming moment for ourselves and space to reflect on what makes us who we are. If you'd like to reflect, restore and build your resilience in a safe and supportive group, then this session could be for you.

There’s no need to be a writer, or ‘good’ with words; you just need yourself and a notepad and the facilitator will guide you gently through the session, which will involve a short series of simple writing activities. No previous experience is needed.
