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 east London 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 living in east London. Please note that participants must be able to cover costs of travel to and from the sessions.
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?
All the coaching sessions are held in Old Ford Road, Bethnal Green. The mindfulness course also takes place in Bethnal Green, but at a different venue.
