Sometimes this is around mental reframing, other times you will take away a practical plan of action.

Each session costs £40. Get in touch to find out more.

Events and Information

Some of the members of SEND Gin and Cheese got together for a Christmas meal in December 2022. For many of the mums, it was the first time they had been out with others living similar lives. Some came along nervous and alone, but everyone had a fantastic evening and firm friendships were formed.

We have plans for more fun, inspiring and informative events. Join the events and information email list to find out more using the form below.
