Code: SGC/21/0415 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.

This course is delivered via Zoom. You will be sent a Zoom invite nearer the time.
If you are a South Glos employee you must request a Zoom Licence from ICT by logging a support ticket (Intranet Home Page, under ICT)

Code: SGC/21/0406 Control in times of uncertainty


An introduction to a simple and effective tool the control dartboard, helpful in times of change or unpredictable conditions. The model can help at home or at work, it can be applied to self or others and is a great way of taking the “sting” of emotional responses out, to help us apply logic to our thinking. A very practical model that can be applied in a variety of situations and can really help to “free up” stuck thinking.

This workshop will be delivered as a webinar via Zoom.

How does what we think impact our reality? What would happen if we altered our thinking to something more helpful? You talk more to yourself than to anyone else in the world. In the face of challenging situations the words you choose for that conversation with yourself will directly impact how quickly you are able to move forward. Neuroscience shows that our brains continue to develop and change even as adults. The brain is actually quite like plastic, and can be reshaped over time, forming new neural pathways. This has led neuroscientists to call this tendency neuroplasticity. So if what you or others around you are currently thinking is unhelpful, the session will give strategies to begin to alter that thinking.
