Life’s a bit easier when you’ve got someone to talk to.
The way we feel about life, what’s going on around us or even ourselves can change for lots of reasons. At times we all need a little help. SLEAP are here to support you every step of the way. Because we know everyone is different, we don’t make you go for the ‘one size fits all’ approach. We offer a range of different sessions for you to choose from in order to ensure that you receive the support that best suits you.
Maybe you just need a chat...
Our wellbeing sessions are a chance for you to talk things through and have a chat to someone about how things are going. This might be just going for a walk, meeting for coffee or even just having a chat over the phone.
Maybe you would like support that is a bit more structured...
Counselling provides an opportunity for you to talk about any problems, challenges and feelings in a safe confidential environment. The therapy offered at THRIVE is Person Centred Counselling, this means that we will listen to you with respect and without judgement. The Counsellor isn’t there to tell you what to do or what to talk about but they will help you explore your thoughts and feelings and give you a safe space to work through any struggles that you might be facing in your life.
Last year we had our first THRIVE group! We looked at skills to help manage our feelings and explored how food and sleep (or lack of it!) can impact our emotional health. We focused on self-care and shared ideas on ways to look after ourselves and we even had a go at some mindfulness! We had so much fun and it's a great way to meet new people. We will be running another group later in the year so keep an eye out on our social media pages for more information.
"I found going to group helped structured my week. I enjoyed the mindfulness and learning how to focus the mind. I enjoyed the week where we looked at healthy living. I would recommend the course to others! It was really good and the ice breakers were fun"
THRIVE is for 16 to 25 year olds living in Central Lancashire with experience of Homelessness/risk of homelessness, temporary accommodation or housing difficulties.
