Talk for Health is a Social Enterprise set up to provide user-friendly, talk based routes to wellbeing.
That is our vision: a society where therapeutic talk is accessible and everyday – a social skill that everyone develops.
Our core offering is the Talk for Health programme, which teaches the skills of authentic talking, empathic listening and deeper connection with others. This enables people to have more satisfying relationships in general, and to set up highly effective peer support networks.
We offer the the programme to:
- Organisations including the Public Sector, charities and community groups
- Corporate Clients
- Individuals – Open Programmes in London
We also train and license people in organisations to lead the Talk for Health programme in-house.
Talk for Health is currently funded by the NHS in Islington London, and by the Local Council in Doncaster. Places on Talk for Health programmes in these areas are FREE to local residents. For more information call us, or see our Facebook page here.
We also offer user-friendly therapy and workshops.
