Did you make a resolution to take care of yourself?


If you made a new year’s resolution to take better care of yourself, Self-Care Skills for Women may be of interest to you.

This eight-week support and educational group will nurture encouragement, understanding, laughter, and healing in a safe and confidential setting. Women attending can hope to build practical coping techniques, tools for maintaining healthy boundaries, and supportive relationships to foster growth. If you are wondering how a support group works here at Anchorpoint, please refer to this article, “Therapy groups: What’s the Big Deal, Anyway.”  Past Self-Care Group participants have found their time with the group healing and beneficial. Here are a few of their comments about this group:

“It was comforting to meet in a group setting and to realize that others have similar problems.  We all attempted to help each other in our group when group members wanted help”

“Group has given me new strength to keep on fighting my fight.  It’s such a wonderful thing hearing that you aren’t the only one dealing with certain issues.  It’s even more wonderful hearing positive encouragement from others listening to your story.”

“I benefitted by hearing from other women that were facing similar struggles even though we may have very different backgrounds and life experiences.  You should attend because you matter.  You are better for others when you take care of yourself.  The group will hold you accountable to prioritize your reflection and growth.”

“I really appreciated the support, feedback, and opinions, of intelligent, articulate caring group members.  Hearing new perspectives and views is so essential to personal growth and remaining open to new possibilities.”

Self-Care Skills for Women begins February 21st and runs for eight weeks, Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30 pm.  The cost is $5 per meeting. Scholarships are available. Click here for a flyer you can print out and share.
