Life coaching designed specifically for the over-55s will now be available for anyone needing to make or face a change in their life, thanks to housing association Peabody Trust.
Starting Tuesday 10 June, Peabody Trust will host a series of life coaching sessions for the over-55s at Hill Lodge Sheltered Housing Scheme, 148 St John’s Hill, 10:30am –12:30 pm. They are calling for interested locals to sign up now.
With activities designed to empower the participant, the course will provide older individuals with the confidence and the opportunity to access the many community services available to them.
Activities organiser, Tina Wood said: ‘’It is only natural that when someone has to make a change in their life, they feel a sense of fear or hesitation. The aim of life coaching is to empower people to overcome their fears so they feel they have the ability to make positive life changes."
Participants will receive information about the community activities that they could be involved in and be given the support needed to get out there and experience all that they want to from life.
"Older people often become very isolated when their social frameworks change. This may occur once they retire or family members leave the nest. This course is a chance for the over-55s to come out to the centre, have a cup of tea and a chat with other people of a similar age who are going through similar life changes.
"Participants will receive all of the support and encouragement they need to face or make life changes. It’s all about helping people to seize the opportunities available to them."
The course will consist of six two-hour modules conducted by a facilitator. Group sizes will not exceed 15 participants. Carers are welcome to attend.
This course will be delivered by Peabody Trust as part of the Activate London programme.
Activate London is funded by the Big Lottery Fund. The project is led by Peabody Trust and delivered in partnership with Broomleigh Housing, CBHA, Circle Anglia, Family Mosaic, Metropolitan Housing and Southern Housing.
