It was really positive group today, we welcomed a new member who was made to feel very welcome. Geoffrey Baines was back for his final part of his strengths quest training. It was so heartening to see group members supporting each other while going through difficult times. The support shown gives people more hope and understanding. With Geoffrey we looked at how we can cope and how to build resilience if we had previously been the victims of Mental/Physical abuse. A way that could help is to look at all the good things about yourself, the things you enjoy and have achieved (i know it’s not easy to do this sometimes!) and to build this self belief up in a way that you have a stronger understanding of yourself and are able to be less affected to situations that may occur that you have no control over. Remember, nobody is perfect, but because somebody says something about us we do not like or you have done something you did not like, it does not define you as a person, there are many facets to your personality. The group would like to once again than Geoffrey for the inspiring work he has done in the group.
Finally, we would like to announce, we have the new leaflets!
