Hey, Hey, Heyy

The Christmas air is slowing down our cogs on this one sorry!  :p

This next support circle is on 22nd December, from 7:55pm to 9:30pm!

What is Support Circle?

Support Circle follows the same basic structure as a Support Chat - opening round, support time, and closing round. The unique thing about Support Circle is that everyone gets their own time to chat and be heard by the group, and have their chance to listen and support others. It's sign-up based so the group is relatively small, and you can sign-up to get support or to support others.

It's a great space for people who find it difficult to get their voices heard in regular support chat and/or are keen to listen and support others in a more structured environment. We have places for people who want to come and get support or attend as listeners

Try your best to stay for the whole session if you sign up to come. That just makes sure nobody feels left out at the end when other people have left and it's their turn to share.

Similarly, it's important to stick to Support Circle if you do sign up and not go into other rooms, just so you're nice and present in the group and ready to support the other folks in the session.

Both of these things help make sure everyone feels equally listened to in the group. :)

You can sign-up using this form, and give us any feedback you have here.
