Who is running Living Life to the Full?
The programme is run under the auspices of Living Lordswood (www.livinglordswood.org.uk) and is being facilitated by Pete and Judy Short. They both have extensive experience in adult education and have been trained to deliver the programme.
Who is it for?
Space is limited, so we are keeping this a local event for people living within the “Lordswood Village” (Sandpiper, Oakwood, Dunvegan, Beaulieu, Longleat etc) We want Lordswood to be the best place to live!
The course uses a tried and tested CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) approach. It has been developed by Professor Chris Williams, a psychiatrist from Glasgow and due to its success it has a growing international following. It’s been designed to benefit men and women and teaches transferable skills that can help you put the shine back into your life. Pete and Judy, who are teaching the course, are educators not ‘therapists’. The purpose of the course is to help you to help yourself. By coming on the course you hope you will meet new people and have a lot of fun! The lower age limit is 18.
Where and when is it being held?
The course will be held in the Lordswood area in an appropriate sided venue for the number who enrol. In 2018 we held the course in the Lordswood Community Centre, Sandpiper Road, SO16 8FD and that worked well so we are likely to use that space again this time. It will be held on Wednesday evenings from 7.30-9.00pm. The first session is on Wednesday 16th January and there will be eight sessions each lasting 1.5 hours.
What can I expect?
You can expect opportunities to look at your life differently. Each week you will be given a new tool that you can use to make your life work better. There will be guidance about how to sort out your feelings when you’re fed up or worried and you’ll learn skills to help you tackle your problems.
What is expected of me?
The most important thing is that you are there! It will work best if you can attend all sessions and work on the things you have learned in between.
As you’d expect with any group, there will be a variety of views and experiences and we ask that you are respectful of those who do not share your point of view. There will be group discussions but you will not be asked to do anything or give any information that you don’t want to.
