Geoffrey Baines visits the Group

Today we had a really good group. Some of the topics discussed were isolation and being able to keep ourselves safe. Somebody from the group brought in some literature about Psychological Assistance dogs and how they are trained to help people with mental health issues which research has shown how having a pet companion helps improve health and well-being.

Geoffrey showed us an exercise on us being aware of what our strengths are. What energizes us is a strength. We discussed how sometimes as human beings, our default position focuses on the negative and find it much easier for someone else to see our strengths than for us to see our own. The group will take “Go live your strengths” sheets away to write some ideas over the next 7 days. It was great to have Geoffrey at the group and will see him next week for the second part of the strengths exercise.
