I'll be facilitating a Caregivers Support Group starting in September, 2011, at Journey Coaching and Counseling Services in Irvine.
This group is intended to support and empower caregivers of ill, disabled or elderly family members, who often experience feelings of overwhelm, depression, and isolation. The group is held in a safe, non-judgmental and confidential setting and we'll work together to decrease stress and increase a sense of self-efficacy in the participants.
The group will run for 6 consecutive Tuesdays from 12-1:30pm, starting Sept. 13th, 2011. Cost is $30 a session, or a discounted cost of $150 for the 6 week series if paid in full by first session.
If you know someone who can benefit from the support of others struggling with their caregiver role, please have them call me at 949-222-6681 or email at YourOCTherapist@gmail.com.
