We meet fortnightly on a Tuesday from 5.30pm - 7.00pm.

Group Coordinator: Vicky Mould

Our support group is for women experiencing depression, anxiety, self-harm, bipolar disorder, borderline personality, and feelings of isolation, loneliness, a lack of confidence, low self-esteem.

We meet online using a video platform called Whereby, which is easy to use and secure. The Group Coordinator provides the information needed to access the meetings online.

Meetings take place fortnightly on a Tuesday, 5.30 pm - 7.00 pm. You will need access to a mobile, computer or laptop with a camera and microphone, a stable internet connection and a private room or space for the duration of the meetings.

The group environment is based on the person-centred principles of non-judgement, compassion and understanding and aims to nurture feelings of safety and trust amongst members. Members of the group can share, reflect, receive and give support.

As our meetings are online, we welcome new members from Eastleigh, Winchester, Southampton, Fareham and Basingstoke in Hampshire. You can contact the group coordinator to check availability, ask questions and arrange an initial discussion. You can call or text Vicky on the group mobile 07555 463031 or send an email.

Who runs this group.

“I have been regularly attending the group for two years, and I have found the peer support from the group the most helpful for me - I am a firm believer in the saying that a problem shared is a problem halved. The group is small at present but very friendly, and some people travel long distances to come. I admit the first meeting was a bit daunting, but I was told that I could just listen if I did not want to share. During the meetings, we often spend some time talking about how we are doing and giving support to each other. There have been a couple of occasions when we’ve socialised outside of the group, such as seeing Ruby Wax perform”
