Recovery

Check out these Recovery Based Courses!!

WRAP

This course is based around building a Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) and will help you to identify your wellness toolkit for recovery. The course involves a number of short, fun and engaging activities which we hope will encourage you to think about who you are and how you interact with others whilst gaining the tools to complete your own WRAP.

We aim for everyone to finish the course with an understanding of your own personal journey of recovery and what it means to you, whilst having fun along the way!

Reel Recovery

A form of self-help that uses movies, particularly videos, as self help tools. Cinema recovery can be a catalyst for healing and growth for those who are open to learning how movies affect people and to watching certain films with conscious awareness.

Cinema recovery allows us to use the effect of imagery, plot, music, etc. in films on the psyche for insight, inspiration, emotional release or relief and natural change.

Spirituality

There is a lot of myths or misunderstandings about the word Spirituality and what it means.

Firstly, its not a religious concept for some, religion may play a part in their spirituality, but not for others.

dly, its nothing to do with ghosts or spirits, or anything supernatural!


The most common definition of the word spirituality is basically “the deepest values and meanings by which people live.”

So with that in mind we created a course that explores each of our personal values and what means the most to us in life.

We then look at how these things can be impacted (or taken away from us) through life illnesses or difficult life events and by understanding this, we become more able to repair or take back those aspects of our lives, and begin celebrating ourselves as unique individuals.

Reptile Recovery

Do you want hands on experience with leopard geckos, a bearded dragon, a royal python and inverts?

Reptile Recovery is a mental health approach to reptile keeping. Are you aware of the mental health benefits of reptiles? From holding snakes with a snug, anxious free grip to adorable looking geckos that can cheer you up by just looking at them.

This is a 6 week course starting 24/01/22 till 28/02/22 ran by a 21 year old reptile owner in recovery himself. Austin finds his reptiles help his anxiety and depression so much that he can assure you that you'll at least take something away from this course.

All animals used in the course are safe and tame!
