Volition welcomes new member: Anxiety Leeds

//Volition welcomes new member: Anxiety Leeds

We are pleased to announce a new addition to the Volition membership.  Anxiety Leeds is a peer support group for anxiety sufferers in Leeds. They meet twice monthly (on the second and fourth Monday of each month) in Room 36B of the Clarendon Wing of the LGI.

Sessions run from 6.30-8.15 pm and people can self-refer simply by showing up.

Upcoming meeting dates are: Monday 9 May 2016 and Monday 23 May 2016

This is what they have to say about their meetings:

“Every meeting begins with an introduction from one of our facilitators. This explains what is going on and how the group runs. You are not required to speak. Your input and experiences are valued. However, you are under no pressure to contribute if you do not wish to.

Each meeting has a theme for discussion. For example ‘difficultly sleeping’ or ‘communicating with friends and family’. This is a starting point but the discussion is not limited to this. Everyone is welcome to contribute. Sometimes people want to share their experiences. Others may have questions for the group. Often new members just want to ask “does anyone else feel this way?”

Other members of the group are encouraged to share their own experiences and offer any practical advice that works for them.”

The atmosphere is warm, supportive and non-judgemental. People go to share their experiences and help each other.  If you have any questions, or would like to be met at the hospital entrance, contact them by email info@anxietyleeds.org.uk
