Headspace - Feel Better Faster

Feel Better Faster is an interactive evening course that will be running again in 2025. A four-part series designed to help you make a change in your life or support someone you are caring for by learning mindfulness techniques, as well as ways to cope with distressing emotions and thoughts. Some of the skills and tips you will learn include how to make balanced decisions, various techniques to calm when panicked, tips to step back from your thoughts and to live by your values. With guidance and support, this workshop might be all you need to get back on track or support someone else to feel better in no time.

Passport to Wellbeing Courses

The Passport to Wellbeing programme is a free programme that offers creative and wellbeing learning opportunities for those learners whose mild-moderate mental health conditions are affecting their day-to-day lives. These courses are delivered in a supportive and nurturing environment and provide an opportunity to learn new skills, achieve and have a positive weekly focus.

These free courses are separate from our main programme and are tailored to support recovery and designed to complement the learners' existing therapeutic, self-care and medical treatments.

Social anxieties, depression, panic disorder, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), low mood, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), or phobias are typical examples of mild-moderate mental health conditions that a variety of people experience every day and are exactly the type of conditions our Passport to Wellbeing learners are managing. It is often helpful to participate in something new with others that you can identify with and to have the reassurance that your tutor will be patient and understanding.
