Free Covid19 support for care workers in Oxfordshire
As part of our response to the Covid-19 crisis, we are offering free online support groups for frontline staff working in Oxfordshire care homes and social care.
Our Covid19 support groups aim to:
- Provide a supportive, safe space to share coping strategies.
- Teach stabilisation and anxiety management techniques based on proven mind-body approaches. Participants can then use these to help themselves during the current crisis and beyond.
- Strengthen resilience to help protect from burn-out and secondary trauma.
We will be teaching a range of techniques drawn from energy therapies, EMDR and mindfulness that are known to calm the nervous system, reduce anxiety and lower stress levels.
Each group will have space for up to 10 participants and will run for one hour over three consecutive weeks. Two experienced MEET therapists will lead and facilitate the sessions.
To take part you will need a laptop, tablet or smartphone and a quiet space where you won’t be disturbed. We’ll be using the popular video conferencing platform ZOOM which is easy to access.
If you are interested, please complete the application form on this page. It is very short and should only take a couple of minutes. Or call us on 07531 195 291 and we will take the details we need over the phone.
For more information about the support groups, please email or call us on 07531 195 291.
Are you a care manager?
We are aware that those in care management roles are also under huge pressure at this time and face distinct challenges, and we are developing group-based support specifically to help management staff. Please let us know if you would be interested in this.
