MumTalk AM is a talking support group for mums mental health, it will run on a drop in basis so there is no pressure to attend each time but you will know it is there for you if you need it. The focus will be on YOU and it will be a safe and supportive space to share how you're feeling. As well as free discussion, a different topic will be chosen each time by the mums who attend, for example loneliness, loss of identity, anxiousness etc. The group will run from January 2020 every other Friday morning at St Johns, Eden Park, Beckenham. The group is set up to be non-profit, with a £2 entry charge per family for running costs. Babies are welcome and toys, drinks and biscuits will be supplied.
It it important to me to support all mums regardless of their childs age so if your kids are older you are very welcome. Please just contact me beforehand if you wish to bring them so we have things in place to entertain them.
MumTalk PM is the evening version of MumTalk AM. Maybe you work on a Friday, or maybe you want to come to a group without the baby. Also running fortnightly from January, MumTalk PM will run in a similar way. The focus is on you and it is a safe space to share with other mums. You'll have the chance to offload whatever's bothering you, and have an honest discussion about motherhood. We'll be setting goals for the following week to grow together and to discuss in the next session. Spaces will be £8 and must be pre-booked. Venue and time to be confirmed.
Mums-to-be are welcome at both groups.
