Frances CoombesThis group will look at psychology in a light positive manner.

Group Coordinator: Frances Coombes (click to contact).

at 2.30pm on Wednesday 1 February 2023 and then fortnightly for four more sessions on Wednesdays: 15 February, 1 March, 15 March, and 27 March. Easter is 9 April.

The intention is that we will meet in the Town Hall.


The group is moving on to a second series of topics for discussion. Each session will start with short introductions to five related topics using an exercise to demonstrate the technique and some feedback. The aim is to use some light fun ice breaker stuff to get people thinking and talking about these five topics:
1) The Body Keeps the ScoreIntroduction to Logosynthesis: a gentle process that uses the power of words to help people dispel unhelpful thoughts and images. An overview of what it is and how it works;
2) Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) as part of Energy Release;
3) Building Rapport with Others beginning with the NLP Eye cues;
4) Thinking Traps an introduction to Rational Emotional Behavioural Thinking;
5) Creative Imagery and Aphantasia – having no Minds Eye’.
