FAQ’s

  • Will there be any role play?

No we do not use role play for this programme

 

  • Will I be asked to speak about myself?

We will never put you on the spot or ask you to speak in front of the group.  Any sharing is completely voluntary and down to your personal preference.  We try to create an environment that is open for those who want to share, but safe if you would rather just join in quietly.

 

  • How many people will be there?

We try to keep the groups smaller for this programme to allow more time to focus on the exercises and ourselves.  At most there will be 12 women.

 

  • Where will it be?

The programme runs from The Women’s Organisation at 54 St James Street, Liverpool, L1 0AB

 

  • Who will be informed that I am attending this programme?

We do not pass your details on to the job centre or any other organisations.  We will only share data with the charity that funds the programme – Henry Smith
