Pitter-Patter Chatter – Walking Group

Wednesday 10am-12noon

Meeting point: Waitrose Entrance, Aylesbury HP20 1AL

Sometimes finding the motivation to ‘get up and go’ is the biggest obstacle stopping us from doing any physical activity. Whether it is a lack of energy or an anxiety of being away from your home and comforts. We will be walking together as a group, chatting and hopefully laughing. These walks are going to be fun! We will always incorporate a café along the way and we won’t let the weather stop us. You don’t need to be of a certain level or standard of fitness to walk in this group, we will begin with short walks and gradually they will get longer without leaving anyone behind.

All you need to do is arrive and be wearing suitable clothing to walk in.

By referral only-please contact Hannah Toomey 07810853835

Re-awaken your Body

Friday 10am-12noon

Whiteleaf Centre

Stretch, tone and connect to your body

There are no expectations of becoming gymnasts!

We will focus on stretching, toning and can work towards putting together some routines which may help us to relax

The only aim is to have fun!

Please arrive wearing appropriate clothing to move freely in

Hello, I’m Hannah. I am a Recovery Worker for the Mental Health organisation, Bucks Mind and I work in collaboration with the Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust. I have recently started working at the Whiteleaf Wellness and Recovery Centre in Aylesbury as the Facilitator of Recovery Focused Groups.
My role is to meet as many patients and service users as possible and gain an understanding of what it is you feel you need in order to support you during your own recovery journey. Through listening to your ideas and getting to know you, I aim to create a range of recovery focused groups for our timetable.
My background is in the Performing Arts, so don’t be surprised if you catch me pirouetting down the corridors! I’m a big fan of the great outdoors, muddy dog walks and spending time with my family. I have a keen interest in Mental Health Wellbeing
and believe in a holistic approach when embarking on a recovery journey. I am currently taking time out from my studies in Counselling and Psychotherapy and hope to pursue this in the future in conjunction with Mental Health Nursing.
I look forward to welcoming you into any of these groups. Please contact me if you wish to join ~ referrals only.
