Why it's a great idea:
Open wellbeing is a program that connects you to amazing local services and profesionals that can help you. The program bridges physical care and mental health care, which have largely been disconnected. Sometimes we can be put off or embarassed by going to a class or group. Open wellbeing allows you to explore each therapy area. GP's and other services often refer us to classes or therapies. We often find we do not connect with them or they are not 'the right fit'. Open Wellbeing will help to reduce the number ' of no shows' to alredy strained service. Open wellbeing is accessible to all, regardless of age and technical abillity., as we aim to offer the program online and 'face to face' . Imagine finding out about Yoga, tai Chi or Meditation, and 'get involved' in a short session in a safe and non judgemental environment. Imagine exploring the fundamental principles of Counselling or Cognitive Behavioural therapy and being able to ask questions in a safe environment.
Steps to get it done:
" I was referred to undertake CBT by my GP and to try meditation to help with my anxiety. I didn't understand either. CBT is like counselling right? Meditation, I can't empty my mind as I have too much going on!" (Student x ) After talking with the student and really listening to his concerns, we explored CBT in some detail and looked at the practicl aspects of what a session would look and feel like. We also had a conversation around meditation and ow it could help him acknowledge his thoughts through reflective meditation. Open Wellbeing is a program that helps you explore, ask questions and connect with the right wellbeing practice and local provider.
