How to Look After your Mental Health & Wellbeing with Mark Evans

Together Against Cancer Humberstone Lane, #Unit S1, Leicester, England

Join us as we welcome Mark Evans, Conversations With Impact, to the Centre, discussing, “How to Look After your Mental Health & WellbeingMental health and wellbeing have become firmly established in the public consciousness. Research shows that people are making personal and professional decisions that prioritise their mental health and wellbeing more than ever, and at Together Against Cancer, we are no different. Through personal and professional experience, we know the impact cancer can have on individuals and support networks. Together Against Cancer is committed to increasing awareness of mental health and wellbeing among those we support.However, achieving positive mental health and wellbeing is easier to say than it is to achieve. Only a comprehensive understanding and approach can make the difference we are after. If you would like new, effective ideas, techniques and strategies to help you flourish and develop resiliency despite the impact of cancer, this workshop is for you.The workshop is led by Mark Evans, an experienced coach and therapist with over 16 years of experience working in business, higher education, the Employee Assistance Industry, and private practice. Mark will take you through the six stages of his transformational IMPACT model, which he has developed, supporting thousands of clients to achieve good mental health and wellbeing.· IMPACT: discover why conversations drive good or poor mental health and wellbeing, and how to have conversations with impact to make the difference you are after· MEANING: learn why your emotions are really messages containing vital information about your difficulties and how to receive, translate and respond to them· PATTERNS: identify the unhelpful patterns of thinking, behaving, feeling and relating that underpin conditions like burnout and exhaustion, and learn how to replace them with helpful ones· ACCEPTANCE: discover why 'Fantasy-Reality Gaps' explain conditions like anxiety and depression and how to close them through acceptance· CHALLENGE: understand why the concept of challenge is so vital to our psychological wellbeing and how The Goldilocks Principle of Challenge: not too little, not too much, but just right, can make challenge work for you rather than against you· TRANSFORMATION: learn about the relationship between personal transformation and mental health and wellbeing and how to get it right and avoid getting it wrongWhat to expect? Mark will share his ideas and take you through some practical, thought-provoking activities. The aim is for the workshop to be interactive, but you are welcome to participate as much or as little as you want—no expectations, just a friendly and supportive space where you can invest in yourself.https://conversationswithimpact.co.uk/contact/Join us from 10.00am until midday for this informative workshop.FREE for all clients, carers and only £10 for the general public, via Zoom and at the Centre.
