What we're about

This group is for anyone who is struggling with social anxiety and feeling isolated. I have struggled for years to overcome my social anxiety but I do now finally feel like am coming through this fear and the group has been a massive part of this! Our group meets every other Friday for members to share, discuss and explore feelings. We generally talk in a relaxed, informal way and there is no pressure to speak, but we do encourage this as we have seen the benefits from group members. This is a safe space to talk about anything that you are currently going through and it can also be used for other exercises such as reading in front of the group or one to one conversations. I feel more groups like this should be available as we have seen the benefits. The group is not run by therapists, this is a voluntary group run by people who have personal experience of social anxiety. We also run outside events like board games evenings, and pub quizzes to help people step out of their comfort zone and try new things with a supportive group. There is a small charge of £5 to cover the room rental/admin fees.
