Wednesday 15 November: 11-12pm: Nature Writing

In this session Freddie (they/them) from Thrive will take you on an adventure into the world of nature writing. We will look at how nature can inform our own non-fiction and fiction writing, and we’ll have a go at writing our own Haiku’s and explore how even if a few moments outside can spark our imagination. Freddie is an experienced writer of poetry and fiction having studied nature writing at university.

Tuesday 21 November 12.30-1.30pm: Mind, Body and Mood

This interactive session will offer ideas and techniques to improve your mood by understanding the power of the mind to change the way we feel, the way we move, and the way we behave.

We will cover how basic NLP words and phrases can help or hinder the way we feel and why certain words and thoughts can have a greater effect than others. We will also look at how changing posture and movement can impact our thoughts and ultimately our moods, giving participants a range of ways to feel calmer, stronger, more resilient and more in control again.

Wednesday 22 November - 12.30- 1.30pm: Carers Rights in Wales

Join our information and advice officer Nia to explore carers rights in Wales and what you can do to secure your rights.

This session is the day before Carers Rights Day on Thursday 23 November.

Thursday 23 November: 11-12pm: Managing Guilt as a Carer

Sara Challice, a Mindfulness Instructor and the author of the award winning book, ‘Who Cares?’ – How to care for yourself whilst caring for a loved one. The session was originally due to be delivered by Dr Joanna Griffin however this is no longer possible due to a family bereavement.

We are very grateful for Sara agreeing to deliver the session at short notice, here is some more information on how the session will now run:

As a carer, you are likely to experience a wide range of emotions whilst caring. Many carers who speak to us say that caring can be extremely rewarding – but it can also be challenging. You may experience a whole range of emotions – and one of the toughest to deal with is Carers Guilt.

During this session, Sara speaks in detail about Carers Guilt, and why carers may feel guilt from time to time, and how you can manage it.

Learn about the Carer Response Mode – how we become wired for caring, which can prove useful, but also have a negative impact on your wellbeing.

Also discover EFT within the session – Emotional Freedom Technique, to release stress and attune to self worth and self love. You deserve to have ‘Me time’ and enjoy each day.
