April Highlights…

Merseyside High Sheriff Awards

We had a lovely evening at the Merseyside High Sheriff Awards on 12th April where our lovely Alan was presented with an award and Debbie was also surprised with an award too for their commitment to supporting men and their families in our community.
So lovely to see some of our amazing friends also be presented with awards too!
Thank you so much to the High Sheriff Lesley who has been an incredible support to us at Sean’s Place this year. 

Pride of Sefton Awards

We also had an incredible night at our first ever Pride of Sefton Awards! We are absolutely honoured to have won the Community Impact Award for every single person who has walked through our door and put their trust in us to support them #InThisTogether

 We are absolutely delighted for one of our lovely members Gary who entered a competition with one of our supporters Opus Events and got to live his dream watching the match at Anfield in one of their boxes with his family on Easter Sunday! We are so happy for you Gary 😁 thank you Opus Events for your incredible support making this dream come true!

 A huge thank you to these legends who gave their time to attend our fortnightly Gardening Club this month to get our garden ready for Summer. We can’t wait to have our activities and events outdoors in the coming weeks…its looking lovely already! 

 We love seeing our centre busy! Fridays are one of our busiest days here at Sean’s Place and we love seeing our guys having so much fun. Huge shout out to those in our Friday Fitness Class who always work really hard and have a lot of fun at the same time too!

Our Angling Club had another fantastic lake trip this month, they certainly don’t let the rain stop them! Well done guys! 

Therapeutic Groups…

NEW Managing Relationships Programme

Over the past few months, we noticed that there has been a dramatic increase in the number of our members who are struggling with relationship breakdowns and family issues therefore we wanted to provide some further support in this area.

To help with this, we have created a new 3 week pilot ‘Managing Relationships Programme’

This programme will allow our members to explore their own relationships, learn some tools and techniques to help work through any current relationship issues they may be experiencing including understanding, responding and resolving conflict with loved ones. The group will also include relaxation hypnotherapy!

We will focus on a variety of relationships, not just romantic partners. This programme is designed for any of our members struggling with relationships with their family, children, friends or colleagues too.

 We can’t wait to start this new group in May! Please contact us if you would like more information.

Bereavement Support

This month, we also completed another Bereavement Group in partnership with Love Jasmine. This is such a special group to us all, we have received amazing feedback including our members telling us that…

“Having this group has been such a big help as I never felt judged and it has helped me to relax and feel like myself again”
“It has been great to know that others are in the same position as me, I feel so much calmer after sharing my grief” 

We are so proud of everyone who trusts us to support them through their grief.
 The next group will begin in May. Please contact us if you would like more information. 

Additional Support

Do you support a loved one who is struggling with their mental health, did you know that support is also available for you too?

  • This is a non judgmental support group for families who support a loved one with mental health concerns. Your loved one does not have to attend Sean’s Place.
  • You will also receive hypnotherapy to help reduce your stress levels and aid with improving sleep.
  • In week 4 you will also receive suicide prevention training to help you support your loved one at home (optional).
  • The course is completely free!
Here is what our families said about our last programme…
  • “I am feeling less alone with my problems & I have realised I need to take time to think about myself” 
  • “I felt comfortable from the start, I feel like I have known everyone for such a long time!” 
  • “This was a new experience for me, everyone should try it!” 
  • “It is a great blend of being in the moment with like-minded people and also having the hypnotherapy to let go of my worries”

Sean’s Place in the Community…

Decent Donuts

We are thrilled to be back in contact with the team at Decent Donuts who raised money for our service last year. This time, the team organised a PAY WHAT YOU FEEL day, where they did not take payments for all their yummy treats, instead they asked customers to anonymously donate into the Sean’s Place charity bucket.
The incredible team at Decent Donuts raised £420 or our service! Thank you so much to Ant and the team for all your support. 

London Marathon

We also wanted to say a huge thank you to the amazing Emily, who ran the London Marathon this month in order to fundraise for Sean’s Place. Thank you so much Emily and I hope you can now have a well deserved rest!
