‘Exploring Beliefs’ is a peer led support group for people who identify themselves as experiencing or having experienced paranoia or fearful beliefs. It is a safe space where people can express themselves without feeling judged and the group is facilitated by people who have (or have had) similar experiences.
A successful launch attracted some 20 people at the Connect & Do Space, 107 Railton Road, Brixton, recently. Pictured are Vanessa, Roger, Barry and Charlie.
After light bites where people introduced themselves, facilitator Garry Ellison spoke about his lived experience of paranoia. “We split into three groups and asked people to discuss Beliefs, How some beliefs can become problematic and then How can we experience beliefs comfortably and safely?
“We all shared back to the group. This was just a taster and icebreaker to get people speaking to each other, then we shared and told people about the new group.”
The group meets every Thursday from 6.30pm-8pm at Mosaic Clubhouse, 65 Effra Rd, London SW2 1BZ.
