Workshop to help cope with Chrsitmas

Because Christmas can be a stressful time with so many things to organise, so much to buy and so little time to take care of ourselves, local counselling service, Anam Chara is offering a free workshop on Wednesday, December 12 at their premises at 39A West High Street between 6.30 and 8pm.

Proprietor, Michael Downie said: “Christmas means different things to different people. For many, it’s unfortunately not a time of good cheer, but of stress and pressure.

“Because it is a stressful time, we would like to give people an opportunity to talk about their worries, to share their experiences and get some pointers about how to cope.

“If you feel you would benefit from taking a little time out to look at ways of coping with stress, why not come along to our free workshop and find out about coping strategies in our warm, friendly and peaceful premises.
