What we covered

Welcome to October! I'm here to help.

Join us for a supportive session in the forest, where we'll navigate holiday-related challenges together, creating a space for mutual support and guidance. The holiday season can bring joy, but it can also bring unique challenges to our mental well-being. Whether it's managing stress, dealing with difficult family dynamics, or coping with feelings of loneliness, we are here to offer a supportive space for you to share, learn, and grow.

Why Community Matters

The holiday season can stir up a range of emotions, and it's important to remember that you are not alone in your experiences. By coming together in a supportive community, we can gain strength from shared experiences and perspectives.

Navigating Stressful Family Dynamics

For many, the holidays bring gatherings with family members who may not always see eye-to-eye. Navigating familial relationships can be emotionally charged and draining. In our forest session, we'll discuss strategies for setting boundaries, managing expectations, and practicing self-care during these encounters.

Coping with Loneliness

Not everyone's holiday season is filled with company and merriment. Feelings of loneliness can become more pronounced during this time. Join us as we explore ways to cope with and combat feelings of isolation, and find ways to connect with others during the holidays.

Managing Holiday Stress

The pressure to create the perfect holiday experience can lead to increased stress and anxiety. We will share tips for managing and reducing holiday-related stress, including mindfulness techniques, time management strategies, and coping methods for dealing with overwhelming situations.

Our Space for Support and Guidance

October is here to support you through the highs and lows of the holiday season. Our forest session is a safe and inclusive space for mutual support, guidance, and understanding. Share your experiences, ask questions, and connect with others who may be navigating similar challenges.

If you have any questions or need further assistance, feel free to reach out. Remember, October is here to support you.

We hope to see you in the forest session, where we can navigate holiday challenges together and build a supportive community for all.

Remember, you are never alone at October.
