Our first group is starting in September 2022
How is your emotional wellbeing?
After the last couple of years it may well have taken a bit of a battering! Maybe you are struggling with anxiety, depression, anger, grief or stress or maybe you are supporting someone dealing with these issues…
They are all very normal emotions; so please know that you are not alone!
Why not consider joining a 12 week wellbeing programme being run by St John’s?
It’s called Kintsugi Hope and is based on the belief that there can be treasure found in the scars of life.
Each week, in a small, safe and supportive group, we will look at subjects rarely talked about in depth such as Anxiety, Perfectionism, Self Acceptance, Disappointment and Loss etc.
The aim of this shared journey is to gain support, understanding and tools that will enable us to become more resilient.
Kintsugi groups are suitable both for people of faith and for those with none.
Who is it for?
The stress and demands of modern living can take their toll on our mental health and wellbeing.
Many of us may feel the effect but not fully understand the cause. There has been a tendency in our society to not talk about our struggles yet ….” healing starts the moment we are heard!”
So the vision of Kintsugi Hope is to provide a place where people can experience :
- Safety and support where there is no shame and embarrassment in struggling
- An increase in self worth, confidence and wellbeing
- A deeper understanding of the reality of God’s love for them.
- Clear pathways to receive additional support if needed
What it’s not….
It is not therapy – there are no leaders or experts.
For this reason, it would not be suitable for those with a more serious diagnosed mental illness.
If you feel this might be for you and you’d like to find out more or would like to sign up for a group please talk to Louise, Billie or Jackie. Watch the video to see how others have benefitted.
