Coping with the festive season (online)

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, many events listed on this website are likely to be cancelled. Please contact specific event organisers for up to date information on whether or not the event will go ahead.

The festive season can be a difficult time. The pressure to seem to be having a wonderful time can leave us feeling left out and images of happy families can increase feelings of isolation and distress. Many people feel this way, you are not alone. Focusing on something meaningful to you or reaching out to get help and support can feel liberating and nourishing. We will explore what may make the season challenging for you and discuss different strategies for coping.
We will work on making a wellbeing plan to see us through the festive season and beyond. Remember, not everyone is spending time with their family, and many people in the UK don’t celebrate the festive season at all.
It is only a few days, and with a plan in place, you can not only ‘survive’ but thrive.
