Our workshop topics include:
Depression & anxiety – Feel the Fear
A series of three weekly workshops designed to help you understand and manage anxiety. We explore the ‘science’ around anxiety including the fight/flight/freeze response; identifying our own anxiety triggers and exploring ways to manage symptoms, and overcome our fears through ‘graded exposure’.
Developed by Torbay and South Devon NHS Trust but delivered by Transitions staff, this 6-week programme helps you to focus on you as a person, not as a long-term condition. It helps you to discover new strengths and rediscover old ones to keep yourself well. It also aims to boost your self-confidence and resilience, to help you cope better emotionally, psychologically and practically with your condition.
A series of three weekly workshops exploring ideas for maximising your income, reducing your bills and bargain hunting! Reduce the stress of making ends meet by stretching your money further. Find ways to improve your mental health and wellbeing, cheaply or for free.
Connection Reflection is a series of three weekly workshops designed for anyone who is concerned about feeling isolated and disconnected from others in their present life or immediate future. It helps you to strengthen your existing social connections and develop new ones.

Clearing clutter & getting organised
Clear Your Clutter is a series of three weekly workshops designed to tackle de-cluttering. Starting with one small area, we invite you to identify what to keep, what to chuck, what to sell and give away. Next is organising your space in a way that works for you. Finally, finding strategies for keeping it that way!
Master Your Tasks: A series of three weekly workshops looking at prioritising, planning, decision making and time management, which are all executive function skills. You are invited to reflect on how you approach tasks and how you complete them (if you do) and whether that works for you, and if not, make a plan to change things.
