Change comes in many forms - sometimes we wish to make changes to our life but find ourselves getting stuck, sometimes change is thrown at us (leaving uni, redundancy, divorce, bereavement). Whatever changes you are facing - whether they are self induced or are changes being forced on you by others or by your circumstances - if you need some moral support come and have a chat. We may try using kindness, self-compassion and other applied positive psychology techniques.
Zig Ziglar (fabulous name isn’t it?), who was an American author and motivational speaker, said:
You must make a choice to take a chance or your life will never change.
He also said:
You can get everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.

Buy a drink at the counter and then head downstairs to find us - don't hesitate, everyone will be warmly welcomed. Each week we have some new faces joining some of our regulars.
At our meet up yesterday we talked about all sorts of things including how the ever-changing nature of the modern world is causing increased levels of anxiety and depression. At this next session, perhaps we can discuss the concept that while you can't control the world you can try to control your response to it. One of our members, Steve, kindly volunteered this Ted talk to illustrate the point:
On the subject of anxiety I would also strongly recommend the book “Notes on a nervous planet” by Matt Haig which I have just finished. It is incredibly spot on. He is very moving in his humility and his descriptions of his issues and what has helped him.
We always welcome suggestions so if anyone wants to propose any other particular change-related challenges or topics please fire away!
