Who is the group for?

The group is for people who have been through a trauma and suffer from PTSD and don't know how to move forwards, feeling stuck and can't move passed whatever it was that turned your world upside down.

 

It helps people with PTSD in the following ways

  • Mental health / Wellbeing
  • Buddy system
  • Learn new skills
  • Loose isolation
  • Helps start with improve of interaction
  • Social skills
  • taking that first step to changer

 

What good will it do coming to the group?

We look at what your “feelings” are that you go through on a daily basis and work through a different feeling each week.

They range from

  • Depression
  • Anger
  • panic attacks
  • low mood
  • anxiety
  • Fear
  • etc.

 

Why should I come to your group and not just go to the doctors as they can give me medication

I'm not a doctor I can't give out medication but I can listen and I understand what it’s like to be in a position where there isn't any help around and don't know where else to go, this is another reason why I started up this group.

Takes pressure off doctors & NHS counselling waiting lists or just another form of help until you can access them.

 

What will I gain coming to the group?

You will learn about what is going on within yourself such as  

  • To help educate about PTSD,
  • Ways of coping or not coping
  • How the brain works the way it does after a traumatic event.
  • Sleeping habits
  • Drinking habits
  • Eating habits
  • Addiction
  • Hyper vigilant (being on guard all the while)
  • Being very jumpy
  • Help others going through the same

 

How much?

It costs £5 for the 2 hours for the session, this goes towards room hire, work sheets, and refreshments.

 

Why do I have to pay for the group?

For military, at the moment I am looking for some funding to pay for the room hire as I don't work for anyone I just rent a rooms, if I don’t get enough people coming I have to pay out of my own pocket, and it needs to also cover the items I need for the group such as paper, ink, tea, coffee, etc.
