HOW IT STARTED
Sharon Bull created the online ladies only community in May 2020. The founder/ director of Compassionate Voices CIC, wanted to keep attendees of The Power of YOU online Workshop connected during the initial lock down period. Since this time and during some of the most difficult months, the community has taken on its own identity. With The Power of YOU wellbeing and empowerment Workshop still at its core, the community’s calendar of events has grown exponentially over the past few months.
At a monthly members meeting in November 2020, an overwhelming majority of the attendees wanted to help secure the future of Compassionate Voices. A yearly subscription charge of £5.00 was agreed and so with this, funding from the National Lottery and a great team including Mandy Kennell, Caron Kirkham, Gemma Clarke, Angela Fyffe Collins and Claire Simpson working with Sharon, the community has become a growing bubble of support, inspiration and understanding for its members.
Now, with over 120 members, in which more than 60% have subscribed to receive the full benefits of the community, we are excitedly planning regional hubs to hold face to face events too. Running alongside our virtual events, there has never been a better time to join us.
Recognised by government bodies, charities, women’s organisations and schools, Sharon has helped countless people over the past 8 years. Her 3 h’s – humility, honesty and humour makes Sharon’s delivery unique, and her 30 year struggle with mental health issues instantly caught the interest of the national media. Since starting out in 2012 as an advocate for mental health awareness, compassion and kindness, she has featured in countless publications. The most recognised being Stella Magazine, Bella, Psychologies, Woman’s Own, Scottish Woman, Daily Express and Daily Mirror. Interviews have included ITV’s This Morning with Eammon and Ruth, BBC’s Inside Out and recently BBC Radio 2’s Jeremy Vine.
Her book Stripped Bare was endorsed by Jools Holland MBE and Dr Mark Williamson, Director of Action for Happiness
COVID19 AND MENTAL HEALTH
COVID19 blighted the year 2020, and this brought about so much anxiety through uncertainty. Tragedy and heartache have hit many families too, and while normality seems to be on the horizon, many of us have been affected in some way by the pandemic. Our mental health and wellbeing are hugely important going forward, so what ever your circumstance, don’t feel alone. Subscribe to our ladies only group, and step out from the pandemic supported by others and supporting others, empowered by others and empowering others.
THE POWER OF YOU ONLINE WORKSHOPS offer women a chance to look at a lifestyle change and help increase self confidence and motivation.
COMPASSIONATE VOICES COMMUNITY offers the opportunity to be part of a supportive growing community.
