While training as a counsellor, I volunteered with survivors of sexual abuse at Safe Space in Dunfermline, Fife, and with people who suffered from substance misuse at the Drug & Alcohol Project (DAPL) in Kirkcaldy, Fife. During this time, I realised just how important it was for people to make progress in groups as well as individually. A realisation that has only grown over the years. As a result, I’m starting Mental Health Support Groups and Online Courses.
So many people suffer in silence. They push down their issues until they’re all-consuming, instead of dealing with them head on. Why? Because society tells us to. But we are all the same. Perhaps not in experience, but in cause and consequence. Mental Health Support Groups and Online Courses are the perfect opportunity for individuals to realise that they are not alone.
Through various exercises, they can gain a better understanding of themselves - and what made them the person they are today - in a safe space with like minded, understanding people. A support system. A community. These support groups and Online Courses help us all build healthy attachments with each other, to build trust, confidence and boundaries, and, most importantly, to become the best versions of ourselves.
