'Me Time' is a chance to do something for your own enjoyment. These online sessions, funded by the Welsh Government, are a place where you can get involved in a range of activities that you may not be able to do normally and explore new opportunities. We will be doing all sorts of things ranging from group viewings of the great wonders of the world, to physical exercise to relaxation and mindfulness and so much more.

These sessions are all about you and your wellbeing.

Come along and have some fun, take a break from your daily routine and share different experiences whilst in the company of other carers.


Find out more about Me Time and what carers have said about supporting their mental health here.

Sessions are being added all the time so please check back frequently to see what else may be occurring.

We also run Care for a Cuppa sessions where you get a chance to chat with other carers. Find out more about these sessions here. 


Me Time Wellbeing Days

We are now running Me Time wellbeing days. These days are a chance for you to come along and try out some of the activities we have during our Me Time sessions. Each wellbeing day is themed around activities such as craft and mindful/relaxing activities. 

You can attend as many sessions as you would like throughout the day - whether that's one session or all of them! 

Some feedback from our most recent Me Time wellbeing day:

“Today’s session made me cry, it touched me and made me realise how I need to look after myself as a carer”

“I have felt very emotional after the session and I realise that sometimes it’s ok to be not ok”

“This has helped me be connected to other carers so I now know I am not alone”

“When I first saw these sessions, I thought I don’t have time for this, but once I made time, I realised how important they are for my wellbeing and I am now eating my words”

Our next wellbeing day is on Friday 24th September.  This day will focus on wellbeing through nature, movement and culture - with sessions from The National Museum of Wales, Small Woods & The Snowdonia Society. 

Registration for these sessions takes place via Eventbrite. To register click here.


Upcoming 'Me Time' Sessions


Me Time in September


Wednesday 15th September, 3-4pm: Cultivating connections to the natural world

Scientists tell us we all have a green gene – not literally coloured green of course but one that causes us to feel attracted to and compelled by the natural world. The aim of these sessions is to help you focus on a particular aspect; supporting your wellbeing by taking you to a different world. They are filled with fun and quirky facts and are seasonally relevant in order to help you remain connected to the world outside your door.

King’s Garden is a social enterprise that supports those who need help to access the natural world for themselves; those in care homes, hospitals, living with dementia / other life-impacting conditions.

This session: Hare Today- colonies and husks! One is sociable, the other is solitary. One is born naked and blind, the other covered in fur and able to see.

Come and join Isa from King’s Garden for a close look at the life of the rabbit and the hare. We will take a peek at the other member of their family (that was a clue as to their name!) Another session where you will be exposed to much cuteness – you have been warned. Something completely different for grown-up children.

This session is for 1 hour

Thursday, 7th October, 3-5pm: SoulCollage®

SoulCollage® is a method of self-discovery through the creation and intuitive analysis of a deck of collaged cards. It was developed by Seena B. Frost, M.A., M.Div. Frost created SoulCollage, then called "Neter cards", while studying under Jean Houston from 1986-1989, and further developed it in her private practice of psychotherapy.

Cards are made by tearing or clipping images (often from magazines) and then combining them, perhaps against a new background image, into a collage. All cards in one's deck should be the same size, generally 5x8 inches. A prototypical SoulCollage deck consists of four suits:
- The Committee Suit is made up of images representing the different voices that constitute one's own personality.
- The Community Suit cards represent influences upon oneself, whether friends, family, pets, historical figures one emulates, or even very special places.
- The Companions Suit consists of the animal guides inhabiting one's chakras.
- The Council Suit consists of Jungian archetypes important in one's own journey.

Join our instructor Debby Burcham as she guides you through the process.

Materials for this session will be provided, but we will be closing registration 8 days prior to the session in order to get them sent out to you, so please book early.

This session is for 2 hours

Saturday, 16th October 2-3pm: Mindfulness

Lose yourself for an hour of mindfulness meditation with ‘Mindfulness’ Mike.


It’s easy to get caught up in a pattern of swirling thoughts—thinking about a laundry list of things that need to be done, ruminating on past events, or could-be situations of the future—and learning mindfulness can help. But what exactly is mindfulness?

It can be defined as a mental state that involves being fully focused on “the now” so you can acknowledge and accept your thoughts.
