At the moment I am only running online sessions via Zoom


Trauma & PTSD Support Group


What day, time and where is it held?


Thursday 2 - 4 pm 


Who is the group for?

The group is for people who have been through trauma and suffer from PTSD and don't know how to move forward, feeling stuck and can't move past 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 by starting with improving interaction
  • work on their social skills
  • Meet new people
  • taking that first step to change
  • Help's integrate ex-military/army back into the civilian world, by mixing with others in the group


What good will it do coming to the group?

We look at what your “feelings” 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,
  • Learn ways of 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)
  • Easily startled - 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, worksheets, and refreshments.


Why do I have to pay for the group?

For the military, at the moment I am looking for some funding to pay for the room hire as I don't work for anyone I rent a room, 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.


How many are there in a group?

Wellingborough = 2

Kettering = 4 - 6


I hope this has answered some of your questions if you have any other questions please send me a message.


Please note

If you are interested in coming along to the group you need to contact me first, I need at least 2 people to come along for the group to run.





Review about the Trauma & PTSD support group


"Being able to go to the support group, where others get you, having support from Nikki, and help us move forwards and learn what is happening through worksheets, drawing and not feeling isolated, learning new ways of coping. Making new friends even at my age, and having someone I can talk to when the group isn't on. Thank you for making this possible." S....
