Coping with difficulties at work or outside of work is not easy, particularly when facing unfamiliar or highly challenging situations. Our live workshops offer a chance to share experiences, reflect, and learn in a safe environment with experienced, psychological practitioners.

People find our live workshops helpful because they can explore topics in more detail and can feel less alone in dealing with many of the issues experienced. They are also an opportunity to ask questions and find out about further support. 

Our workshops are designed for individual personal development and are not for training purposes, but please remember you can access this support during your worktime.

Please note, Here for You is open to several NHS & social care services across Surrey & NE Hampshire, however not all our services are available to all organisations. Please get in touch if you are unsure which services are available to you.
