Keeping the Balance: A workshop for Carers

Being a Carer can be a very rewarding but challenging experience. The challenges associated with caring for others can lead to experiences of low mood, stress, frustration, poor sleep and worry.

Staff at Back on Track are able to help you understand more about these difficulties and help find ways of coping with them. The workshop will give you the opportunity to meet other carers so you can learn and share your experiences and will introduce a range of techniques aimed at helping you cope with everyday challenges. This may help you complete your caring role more effectively.

The workshop is a one-off, 2 hour session. It looks to help: 
– normalise the experiences and struggles of being a carer through group discussion
– signpost to other in-house groups & workshops, helpful external groups and organisations, 
– provide psycho-education on CBT techniques most relevant to the group, including mindfulness and relaxation.
If you would like to attend this group do contact the BoT team on 0300 123 1156 to book an assessment 2 weeks or more before the group. Tell the therapist assessing that you are interested in attending this group
