Helen Kirk: January 2019
As the welcome area project is now well under way we are looking to the future and the opportunities it will offer us to engage with those in need in our community. One thing we are hoping to offer at various times are 'Listeners' — people who will be available to simply listen to those who need someone to talk to. Perhaps this might be something you would be interested in doing? I am hoping to lead an introductory course on Listening skills in the spring. It has been produced by the Acorn Trust and consists of two two-hour sessions.
As their website says, "Many of us today have discovered for ourselves the difference it makes when someone really listens to us. Being well listened to can be a life-changing experience, and yet sadly also one which is comparatively rare in our busy world."
If you think you might be interested please let me know. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Tel. 01296 488963.
