Good Luck Andy!
Many of you may have learned over the last few weeks that our incredible therapy coordinator Andy will sadly be leaving us at Sean’s Place. As Andy will have been a huge part in many of our members journeys here at Sean’s Place we know that you will all be wishing him the best of luck and all future success in his new endeavour. He has been a huge part of our service and we can’t thank him enough for his time with us. Good Luck Andy!

Thank you to Dawn for designing this course and for sponsoring all the materials

NEW Managing Relationships Programme
Over the past few months, we noticed that there had 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 created a new 3 week pilot ‘Managing Relationships Programme‘ which was completed in June.
The feedback we have had from our first group was fantastic! Our members told us that…
“The programme helped me understand the need for more tolerance and understanding in relationships”
“There was nothing to dislike”
“This has helped me to open up and be more present in the moment”
