Therapy Team licensed to facilitate Equipped2Succeed course
August 2, 2019
Earlier this year our Therapy Coordinator and two members of
the SV2 Peer Support Group attended the Equipped2Succeed training course.
The 10 day course covered a variety of topics such as: the
power of positive thinking; Managing stress; Mental health awareness; and Managing
Relationships. Those who attended reported back that it was thought-provoking
and could be really beneficial to others.
The course was chosen after meeting the founder, Beverley Burton,
and deciding that this kind of programme could really benefit our service users.
“I am extremely hopeful that this will be the key to so many other people that have gone through SV2 services and are onto the next part of their lives.” – Peer Group Member
Since becoming licensed facilitators SV2 are now in the process of creating a programme for service users on the waiting list.
It can be incredibly frustrating for those in need of therapeutic support having to wait up to six months. While we are unable to change this, we hope that in the future we can offer constructive support while those in need are having to wait for one-to-one support. The aim is to offer this service to adults on the waiting list at the start of 2020.
We are also excited at the prospect of delivering this programme
to 16 – 21 year olds. This comes as great news for our young people, as younger
service users have consistently expressed their desire to be around others who
have had similar experiences.
