The iCope service offer a range of one off workshops sessions. All of our workshops are primarily based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and are designed at teaching participants’ tools and techniques to manage their symptoms more effectively.

Each workshop is facilitated by two-three of our practitioners. The first half of each workshop focuses on helping attendees understand more about the topic area and how this can present and affect someone’s life. The second half focuses on teaching tools and techniques to help you manage these symptoms more effectively.

Workshops are a great addition to one-to-one therapy sessions. They give participants the opportunity to learn a range of skills and learn from the experience of others. They are also an incredibly normalising experience and participants often comment on the comfortable environment we are able to create.

We offer workshops on the following topics:

What can I expect?

Workshops are typically three hours long. All have a short comfort break in the middle. There are usually up to 10-20 people attending the session. Our sessions are facilitated by two to three members of staff

Will I have to talk?

No, not if you don’t want to. Participation is encouraged to help you get the most out of the session but we keep the discussions based on the topic rather than personal experience. You will never be put on the spot to contribute and if you do not wish to take part in group discussions that is ok and you will not be forced to contribute.

What if I see someone I know?

This is a common question but it rarely happens. If you are ever uncomfortable in a group you can always ask to attend the next one. However there may be positives in seeing someone you know at a session. It may be that you both hadn’t been open about your difficulties before but could now be a support for each other.

Is there anything else I should know?

Most people feel anxious about attending a group session and you will not be alone. However everyone there wants you to feel comfortable and learn how to improve your wellbeing.
