Event: Grief Meets: Self Care and Self-Regulation

Monday 27th April, 7 – 9pm, Zoom.

This is a practical and engaging session where we’ll explore and practice some simple and effective ways to support your wellbeing and resilience.

In this session, led by facilitator Chris Brown, we’ll learn a centering practice that you can use to help you regulate your stress responses. We will also explore your relationship with self-care and consider ways you can support your own self-care.

Grief Meets are monthly informal sessions for LGBTQ people who have experienced a bereavement. Groups will explore a particular theme each month, often using a creative outlet.

To attend please email Jackie at grief.encounters@switchboard.org.uk. Please note this session will take place virtually on Zoom, don’t worry if you’ve not used Zoom before we will email you a guide and joining instructions beforehand.
