Time to Talk for Parents

Starts 6th September 2022

Meeting in Barkby Thorpe near Thurmaston

Being a parent is a unique experience bringing many unexpected challenges.

If you feel any of the following most of the time: overwhelmed, irritable, isolated, on edge, lacking motivation or struggling to enjoy life, this could be a sign your mental well-being is suffering.  

 Time to Talk for Parents is an inclusive support group for parents at any stage or anyone in a parenting role (fostering, step parents) offering you some time out of your busy life to talk about experiences, gain new perspectives and support to manage your mental well-being.

Having worked in various support and counselling – based roles for the past 20 years, Josie has a extensive understanding of the challenges and difficulties people face.  She’s passionate about the importance of mental well-being and how it can impact every aspect of life. 

Josie facilitated various support groups whilst working as a Family Outreach Worker and believes being part of a group can make a significant difference to self esteem, confidence, self-awareness and understanding. 

 

What can I expect?

 

To ensure everyone in the group has a chance to share and contribute, places will be limited to six.

Session 1: as a group, you will agree ground rules, get to know one another and develop individual/joint goals for the group

Sessions 2-7: you will support one another to explore the topics and concerns identified by the group and share experiences

Session 8: in the final session, you will focus on the impact of the sessions ending and what you will take from them

Is Time to Talk for Parents right for me?

For your benefit and the group’s benefit, you will be invited to chat informally to Josie before making a booking to ensure you are happy with the aims of Time to Talk for Parents. As the group is time-limited, all participants will need to be able to commit to attending each session.

Please note: Time to Talk for Parents does not provide parenting advice, the focus will be your own mental well-being and self-care.

Onsite Creche Facilities

The creche service is provided close to where we will be meeting. Heather Wilson of @thecowshed (a qualified Early Years Practitioner with over 25 years post qualification experience) will create a fun and safe space for your children whilst you have time to talk with the group.

Heather is happy to take any queries about this service heather@thecowshed.me

There are baby changing facilities available and the room is accessible for pushchairs.

*Spaces will be limited for the creche so we will be taking bookings on a first come first served basis*
