What is a cookie?

A Cookie is a small file that is sent to your computer when you visit a website. These Cookies are used to store information about you for the next time you visit that site – such as where you went on the site and what you did. The Cookie remembers the computer you use rather than storing personal details about you, so if you used another computer to access the site, say from work, it would treat you as a new person. Cookie files are a way for a website to remember you when you next visit so they can automatically fill in information such as your login when you return. However, if you want to surf the net without worrying that someone can see which sites you have visited on the computer you are using, you might want to delete this information. If people want to see which websites you’ve been to, all they need to do is look at either your Internet History or the Cookies saved onto your computer. To keep them from being able to do this, you will need to: a) delete all Cookies from the Temporary Internet files on your computer and b) delete all the Links in your History folder.

Counselling

One-to-one counselling is a talking therapy that involves a trained therapist listening to you and helping you find ways to deal with emotional issues in a relaxed, non-judgemental and confidential environment. Whether you feel lonely or isolated, or just need someone outside your social circle with whom you can share your concerns, we’re here for you.

All our counsellors are members of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) or the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).

Call us today and tell us about you and your goals, and we’ll match you to the right therapist for your individual needs.

Connect Well’s counselling sessions take place once a week on Zoom or telephone for up to six weeks, and are FREE for anyone living in London who is over 18 and part of the LGBT+, BAME or HIV communities.

Life Coaching

One-to-one Life Coaching can provide you with greater structure, skills and perspective while helping to improve your overall confidence, resilience and wellbeing.

Connect Well Life Coaches can help you unlock your full potential and enable you to move forward beyond any feelings of loneliness and isolation, to achieve ambitious yet realistic goals.

Coaching Programme

The main aim of our Coaching Programme is to support people who may be experiencing loneliness and isolation. The six session programme is based on key principles of psychological wellbeing and positive psychology – with online sessions delivered on Zoom at the same time each week, for six weeks.

This fun and interactive support programme gives participants a platform to engage with peers as well as learning and sharing new tools and strategies to improve their day-to-day experience during times of loneliness and isolation.

Topics covered by the programme help support people’s positive mental health, which is essential for us to be able to make connections and take real steps to change our experience. While practical strategies and mini-goals, which are included in every session, are focused on reducing social isolation and loneliness.

All Connect Well services are FREE for anyone living in London who is over 18 and part of the LGBT+, BAME or HIV communities.

Wellbeing Workshops

Connect Well’s Wellbeing Workshops are free standalone webinars delivered online by experienced facilitators focussed on issues and topics suggested by service users and professionals.

Based on the key principles of positive behaviour change, Wellbeing Workshops deliver positive health messages and encourage healthier lifestyle choices while helping to build increased confidence, motivation and resilience.

Past workshops have focused on topics such as: Stress Management, Resilience, Personal Leadership, Relationships and Communications, Happiness and Confidence.

All Connect Well services are FREE for anyone living in London who is over 18 and part of the LGBT+, BAME or HIV communities.

Art Therapy

Art Therapy is a fun creative process where art-making and psychotherapy combine to aid individual growth, awareness and healing.

In Art Therapy no art skills are required – participants are free to make images which provide a more tangible and immediate way to express feelings and emotions. The aim is to release creativity, ease distress, increase awareness, resolve conflicts, trauma and/or cope with difficult emotions.

Art Therapy can help participants to manage and resolve emotional problems, relationship difficulties, self-esteem, bereavement, depression, anxiety, feeling stuck, health problems and general life struggles.

Connect Well online Art Therapy sessions can be delivered as both standalone workshops and extended programmes normally run over six weeks.

All Connect Well services are FREE for anyone living in London who is over 18 and part of the LGBT+, BAME or HIV communities.

Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy utilises the power of positive suggestion to bring about subconscious change in people’s thoughts, feelings and behaviour.

Hypnotherapy works particularly well as a treatment for anxiety, habit breaking, stress, addiction, panic attacks, phobias, mild depression, sleep disorders, trauma and pain.

All Connect Well hypnotherapists are qualified and experienced at supporting people with a diverse range of health conditions.

Sessions take place once a week on Zoom or telephone for up to six weeks, and are FREE for anyone living in London who is over 18 and part of the LGBT+, BAME or HIV communities.
