This Way Up is a programme of professional life coaching and stress-reduction techniques for people who feel stuck.
It can help you get your life on track if you feel held back by challenging circumstances or difficult past experiences.
Who is it for?
Anyone living in on a low income who wants to get their life on track if they feel held back by challenging circumstances or difficult past experiences. But please note that, while this programme can help alleviate some mild-moderate mental health problems like anxiety or depression, it is NOT a therapeutic programme. So it’s not suitable for people currently experiencing a mental health or addiction-related crisis. If you have any questions about this, we are happy to discuss this with you.
What does it cost?
This Way Up is free for people on a low income. Please note that participants must be able to cover costs of travel to and from the sessions if taking place in person.
What will be expected of me?
We ask that you commit to come to the sessions on time. We will encourage you to be open to the changes that may come about in your life, and to be willing to take steps to move towards your goals. We also ask that you do some small amounts of home ‘practice’ for the mindfulness course, and take part in evaluation of the course.
Is mindfulness a religious practice?
No. This Way Up is completely non-religious
Where is the programme held?
Due to the coronavirus situation and the ongoing public health risks of indoor group gatherings, the group mindfulness course sessions are currently taking place online via Zoom.
One-to-one sessions can take place online via Zoom if preferable, but may be able to take place in person by the mutual agreement of the client and our coaches, depending on the social distancing regulations and advice at the time.
If one-to-one coaching sessions are agreed, they will be held in Bethnal Green, east London.
