Living Life To The Full [LLTTF]
Want to have a Happy New Year?
Living Life to the Full is an 8 session programme which started in January 2018.
The course is designed to give you the tools so you can change your life: Feel happier, have more energy, enjoy the moment, gain confidence, sleep better, get out more, enjoy better relationships, help others…
Who is running Living Life to the Full?
The programme is under the auspices of Living Lordswood (www.livinglordswood.org.uk) and is being facilitated by Pete and Judy Short. They 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 will meet new people and have a lot of fun! The lower age limit is 18.
Where and when is it being held?
It will be in the Lordswood Community Centre, Sandpiper Road, SO16 8FD on Wednesday evenings, 7.30-9.00pm. The first session is on Wednesday 10th January and there will be eight sessions each lasting 1.5 hours.
How much is it?
The cost is £20. This includes refreshments and all the core course materials. There will also be a range of optional booklets available for a small charge if participants wish to buy them.
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.
What do I do now?
We’re so sorry! This boat has sailed! (The course was fully booked and is well underway.)
We are not sure if and when we will run the course again but if you want to register your interest- click here.
