The one thing that is constant in this world is change. You can guarantee change will happen usually just after you get used to the last change that was made. Since March 2020, it feels for many people that “change” has been on steroids. It would appear that in the foreseeable future of the Covid world, this may continue, so how do you cope?
Many people are OK with change but struggle with uncertainty. This workshop will provide opportunities to share stories, to learn some strategies for dealing with, and coping with, change and uncertainty. This is not group therapy. The concept is a respectful space to learn new tools that challenge our thinking and find more helpful ways to cope, to nourish ourselves and to grow. It will not all be touchy feely stuff as you are guaranteed of some laughs and some challenges.
Hope to see you there unless something changes…lolol

Deb Reveley is the CEO and principal driver of Brain Ambulance Pty Ltd, a business she started in 2004 to deliver mental health education from the lived experience.
She has endured mental health problems since she was 25 and at 32 became house bound for 2 years with agoraphobia. During her more manic moments, Deb has owned a bookshop, a book café, a catering business and popped out from the psych ward for the day to run mental health training.
As a well person now, Deb is able to reflect on past experience and present courses that are relevant, informative and fun. Most importantly they give participants a chance to reflect for themselves about how they are currently dealing with this COVID life and the challenges it brings; how have our plans been impacted and are our dreams still possible? Spending so much time at home we have started to realise how many ‘things’ we have around us. Deb has had experience recently helping friends declutter their homes and deal with letting go. Not easy for any of us.
By the end of these courses, you will have laughed, learnt and developed skills to help you cope with these turbulent times in a supportive and humorous group.
