The I Can Centre is "A Kinder Society" initiative promoting respect care & compassion
We are passionate about lifelong learning, and do not believe that adults should have to wait until they are in crisis before gaining techniques and tools to understand and manage how they feel. As such, and as a low cost alternative to 1-1 CBT, we offer a range of fun, informal community courses that can be taken for information and prevention, if not support. By gaining these insights early, we believe that a lot of angst and distress can be avoided, and people can soon add/regain quality in their lives and relationships.
Our community courses such as "Stress Busters" are fun and informal; they are suitable for the general public of all ages, backgrounds, cultures etc. All courses can be taken for information and prevention if not support.
However, anyone is crisis may be better suited to 1-1 CBT support; if unsure, talk to us in confidence,
Community courses include "Stress Busters" AND "Teen Stress Busters" (for those aged 14-17 years). Although stress is very prevelant, there is no assumption anyone attending "Stress Busters" is stressed, as it is quite fine to attend for information and prevention, or just for the bit of craic! Also, both these courses are educational rather than counselling, so at no point will attendees be asked to talk about how they are feeling. Instead, all information will be on slides and handouts [more information].
Mindfulness refers to the non-judgmental attention and acceptance of the present moment. We offer a low-cost six-week course of mindfulness meditation which builds and deepens practice week-on-week. New six week courses start regularly, and drop-in / per-session guests are also welcome [more information].
Being happy is not the same as not being stressed. We teach people how to be happy which includes making mindful, compassionate choices toward the best and finest versions of ourselves. Happiness cannot occur where people are down or anxious; therefore doing ‘Stress Busters’ is recommended before learning higher level techniques towards happiness and wellbeing.
