In the future, we’re hoping to hold more events, online and in-person, showcasing artists and providing wellbeing support. Check out our current wellbeing courses here.
Introducing Wellbeing Wednesdays! Led by Bethany Garner (BSc, MPsycholsci, MBPsS), Wellbeing Wednesdays will be an online series exploring how to deal with common mental health symptoms that have arose, or been exacerbated, by the COVID pandemic.
“I am a Master of Psychological Sciences graduate from the University of Liverpool. I have experience working with clients with a wide variety of complex mental health needs, and have successfully delivered 1:1 low intensive therapies. I have a good level of understanding of human behaviour and mental health difficulties, and I wish to use my psychological theory knowledge and experience to make a difference.” – Bethany Garner
The series is going to be based around some of the common symptoms of the current COVID circumstances. There have been reports of high levels of anxiety and low mood – which these sessions should hopefully give some advice for. There will elements of psychology education and information on key treatments, such as CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), that participants can take part in and learn about.
The sessions will be based around the following topics:
- Panic attacks
- How to conduct CBT yourself
- Mindfulness and relaxation
- Information on anxiety and depression
This series will be starting November 2020. More information will be posted as well as tickets. There will be a participant limit on each session and the events will be ticketed. To allow access for all, the events are free to attend, although we will also be offering a paid ticket option for those who can afford it, to go towards funding future and ongoing projects. We also are accepting donations in general to help us to achieve our mission.

Originally a tri-weekly affair, Wellbeing Live comes to you every Saturday on our social media. Showcasing talent from a broad range of artists and creatives, Wellbeing Live is a way to bring the arts to the lives of everyone. From performances to tutorials you can follow along to, often using things you’ll already have at home.
If you’re a creative and would like to feature on Wellbeing Live please get in touch!
