Sunday Support Call

There’s no need to pre-register, and there’s no such thing as being late. Join us at the gathering. Come as you are and gain emotional support as well as learning self-compassion and how to prioritise your own self care.

We meet on Zoom:

  • Use your phone , computer or tablet
  • Your camera can be switched on or off
  • Listen in
  • Ask for support
  • Connect with others, You are not alone.
  • Learn a self-care tool to help you support yourself

FAQs

Self-compassion is simply the process of turning compassion inward.  We are kind and understanding rather than harshly self-critical when we fail, make mistakes or feel inadequate.  We give ourselves support and encouragement rather than being cold and judgmental when challenges and difficulty arise in our lives. Research indicates that self-compassion is one of the most powerful sources of coping and resilience we have available to us, radically improving our mental and physical wellbeing. It motivates us to make changes and reach our goals not because we’re inadequate, but because we care and want to be happy.  Source: Dr Kristin Neff 

The Sunday Support Group takes place once a month on a Sunday at 7pm GMT (London UK time). We will expand this to weekly sessions as the community grows.

7 pm or 10 am

Each call lasts 45 minutes. We start at 7pm and aim to finish at 7.45 pm

The Sunday Support calls are suited to anyone affected by someone else’s alcohol dependency or addiction. There is a focus on grief, as grief is complicated and can be experienced while our loved one is still alive.
