Funded mindfulness and counselling for women, from Blackburne House

Liverpool women’s charity Blackburne House is offering a range of fully funded mindfulness sessions and counselling services to women. All of the following are offered online, and are therefore completely Covid-secure ways to look after your mental health during these challenging times.

Fully funded mindfulness sessions

Intro to Mindfulness – a one and a half-hour session

In these ever-changing, challenging and uncertain times it is essential that we are physically and mentally healthy. Mindfulness and meditation are great ways to help us maintain our mental health. This introductory mindfulness session could start you on a journey to boost your health, happiness and wellbeing. It is perfect for those wanting to explore mindfulness prior to committing to the full programme.

Mindfulness half days – four three-hour sessions

Living mindfully can promote wellbeing and resilience. Mindfulness assists with confidence, attention and focus. It also enables us to quiet the mind and see things as they are. Meditation is a tool to reduce stress and anxiety. It can inspire a different way of thinking and addressing negative thinking patterns, ruminating about the past and worrying about the future.

Mindfulness for Self Esteem and Confidence – a one and a half-hour session

Research has shown that living mindfully, together with meditating, can improve confidence and self-esteem. It helps to quieten the mind and see things as they are. Meditation can be used to reduce stress and anxiety and inspires a different way of thinking, helping us to be more present and enjoy the now – something that is often overlooked.

Bespoke mindfulness – sessions for your workplace or group

In addition to the above sessions, Blackburne House can also offer a bespoke service to meet the needs of your workplace, group or community.

All of the above are available to women only, free-of-charge. For more information, or to enquire about booking sessions, email wellness@blackburnehouse.co.uk.

Fully funded counselling sessions

One to one counselling – a maximum of six sessions

Individuals can access personal counselling in a confidential, safe and non-judgemental space, offered by a qualified and highly experienced integrative counsellor who, as the name suggests, uses a combined approach that brings together different elements of specific therapies.

Group counselling – weekly sessions

A collection of women with similar issues meet as a group, with a trained counsellor, to discuss learn and share experiences. Themed group sessions can cover topics including relationship problems, work-related stress, grief and bereavement, communication and social skills, anxiety and depression, anger etc.

All counselling sessions are delivered via Zoom and are fully funded for women aged 18+ who live in Liverpool City Region. For more information, or to enquire about booking sessions, email wellness@blackburnehouse.co.uk.
