OTR Circle of ConneXion 2021
You Are Not Alone
The Circle Of ConneXion (COCx) is a self-help peer support group open to members (or peers) of Over The Rainbow. It is a platform for members to practice self-care as a community without the involvement of professional help. Launched in February 2020, it provides support for individuals who have lived some of the challenges or are going through mental health experiences. The Circle is a safe place for people who want to get things off their chest and also to play and have some wholesome fun.
One COCx cycle consists of six one-hour sessions and members meet every fortnight on Wednesday at 8.00pm either in person or on Zoom depending on the number of participants. We can accept up to 10 members per session. Members are encouraged to attend all six sessions which will run over a period of three months. When the cycle ends, members can sign up for the next cycle or for as long as they would like to give and receive support.
Dates: Wednesdays - February 24, March 3, 17 & 31 and April 14 & 28
For those interested please register above and also fill out the form here by 10 February 2021.
Our wish is to empower members to learn new coping skills, develop new resources and reframe challenges as opportunities. We adopt a dynamic and flexible approach that enables members to connect and learn from one another. We encourage self responsibility: each person in the group owns, understands and learns from his or her experiences, thoughts and feelings. The group is there to share and explore different worldviews, create solutions together and to celebrate change, no matter how small. All members are peer facilitators because everyone has something worthwhile to contribute; each person gives and receives at the same time.
