ONLINE WELL-BEING COMMUNITY
COMMUNITY WELL-BEING ZOOM SESSIONS:
EVERY THURSDAY 10AM
- Feeling lonely or isolated and looking to connect with people?
- Feeling work or study stress?
- Suffering with anxiety?
- Or just looking for someone to listen?
Then maybe we can help.
We now hold weekly community well-being sessions online, where you can have an opportunity to connect with us, and chat to others like you, over a hot cuppa.
Each week is likely to be different. Sometimes you may be chatting with just the host, other times there may be a group.
We have for several months now been offering a free walk-in service, which if you are local to Colchester in Essex, you are also welcome to attend! It's every Thursday at 9:45-11am at our Colchester Store, 40 Eld Lane.
With our online service, we wanted to be able to offer an alternative to the walk-in sessions to those who might not be local to Colchester. Perhaps you're in isolation right now? Or maybe you're just looking to see what goes on in these meetings without the pressure of an in-person meeting.
We are offering this service to anyone in the UK.
BEST OF ALL, THIS IS A COMPLETELY FREE SERVICE.
We would like everyone to understand this is not an official counselling service, we are not trained professionals. This is simply a free community group, aimed to connect people and offer a safe, judgement-free space to talk.
Our intention is not to offer advice, but to listen.
If you are looking for professional /trained support, then we recommend speaking with an official counsellor.
We work with Ellie from 'Essex & Suffolk' Counselling, we highly recommend her, and you can email her here:
If you are a person in crisis, and require urgent mental health support, then we recommend to call the Samaritans hot-line on 116 123.
These meetings will be held over zoom every Thursday morning at 10am, for 45 minutes.
To join, simply get in touch via email or instagram and we can send you the zoom link.
We hope you can make it and look forward to connecting with you.
