Support groups

You may have already completed a rehabilitation or recovery programme for anorexia/bulimia, alcohol or drug abuse. Possibly you have experienced a relapse, or you may be in need of encouragement or emotional support. You know who you are. You may have had this idea of joining with others, but wondered whether you will cope or manage in a group situation. Maybe you feel you’re not ready? While you are excited by the thought of becoming stronger, more positive about life and what it has to offer you, you still feel vulnerable and uneasy about opening up to others. This is where I can help.

Nothing new and amazing can happen when life is confined to a cage, although this offers you a kind of comfort zone. Stepping out may seem risky, but this is where real adventure starts and it’s totally worth it! At my support group meetings you will find the encouragement you need to turn up the heat. Sharing frustrations can make us feel stronger and our problems more manageable. Compelling stories are not only encouraging, but also enabling, as they motivate us to find and pursue our goals. We may face setbacks, but this is what helps us make it in the end. It’s not about where we start, but where we finish. My group sessions and training, together with a sense of belonging or community it offers, will help you cut through the issues crippling you. It will transform you, help you to become more confident, to focus on what is important in your life, to stand tall.

Training is something I am passionate about, capturing years of discovery and experience, focused on how to achieve self-worth and agency, a proven formula on the road to recovery. The mission behind support group meetings is to bring people together who want to pursue a vision bigger than themselves. Every new member adds meaning to our discussions, has the potential to transform lives because of the insight and experience each individual brings to the group meetings. I guarantee it will do it for you! There is no risk in joining. The monthly costs are very affordable and amount to little if this is a way to actively help you find a better place, enjoying the things that matter most. You can cancel at any time. I offer both daytime and evening sessions in order to accommodate everyone. Don’t put the decision off, moving forward often requires us to confront our fears. We deal with fear by refusing to give it decision-making authority! Believe you have the strength to accomplish what you set out to do. Adopt a mindset of possibility!
