We run a wide variety of free psycho-educational courses around a range of psychological and emotional difficulties. We aim to help people feel as comfortable and as welcome as possible, so no-one will be asked to do anything that they do not wish to. There are no “ice-breaker” exercises and no-one will be asked to speak individually. However, if you want to share a thought or experience or ask a question, then you are more than welcome to do so. The courses are run by members of the psychology service.
Our courses run at different times during the day and in different venues around Swindon. The courses vary in length, with a range of three to six weekly sessions. For most of our courses, each session lasts for two hours with a ten minute break halfway through. We provide refreshments free of charge, although we do appreciate voluntary donations. Each session begins with a brief recap of the previous session and we provide handouts summarising the material covered at the end.
You can find overviews of all of the courses we offer within the Swindon area by looking here. You do not need a referral and can book on yourself, either on this website or by calling us on 01793 836836.
For dates, please check here for courses available. If there is currently no date for the course you are interested in, it may either be that the next course is already fully booked or that the courses for the next quarter have not yet been added to the website.
The quarters run from January to March, April to June, July to September, and October to December. In that case, please check again closer to the time.
These courses are taught courses, run in a group format, so although there will be some group discussion it is up to you how much or how little you choose to take part.
Please note that these courses are only available for people who are registered with a GP in the Swindon area. If you have any queries about this, please contact the LIFT Psychology Swindon main office on 01793 836836.
If your concern is not addressed here or if you would prefer to speak to someone then do not hesitate to contact us.
