What Is The Power of YOU?

The Power of YOU is a highly acclaimed women’s wellbeing and empowerment programme. It has already received countless recommendations and is also recognised by councils, women’s centres and businesses.

Who Is It For?

The Power of YOU is for women, who are looking for a lifestyle change, inspiration, and empowerment. It also aims to initiate openness, trust, and support for each other.

“The workshop was like no other I have attended!” ~ Claire S

The Power of YOU Workshop is split into 3 weekly sessions and is unique in that they work alongside a digital downloadable/printed journal. The journal’s 19 sections take a step-by-step journey helping to uncover any past issues that maybe holding up our progress to a more fulfilling and happier life. Sometimes we are not even aware of what these are?

Since March 2020, we have all had a rough ride because of the COVID19 pandemic, some more than others. Loneliness and the feeling of being alone when difficulties arise is all to common in our society and yet if we reach out, we realise there are many feeling the same as we do.

The Power of YOU Workshop brings women together and encourages them to own and share their stories. Speaking out about our lived-in experiences is not only empowering to others, but can also be therapeutic for ourselves too.

The society we live in does little to help the human mind relax.

Let’s remind ourselves of some of the stresses we encounter. A few examples might be – parental worries, carer responsibilities, financial difficulties, partnership issues, work disputes, job loss and coping with a mental, or physical illness.

Some of life’s difficulties are unavoidable, but there are so many unnecessary burdens that we force upon ourselves too. A mind constantly in worry is not only bad for our health, but it can also block out the source of our own personal ingenuity. And while many of us have learned that daily exercise and a nutritious diet helps to preserve our bodies, we are still a long way from valuing the importance of conserving the mind.

Let’s ask ourselves this too…

Searching for perfection,

Why are we constantly searching for the perfect life, when it simply does not exist?

Why do we often yearn for the qualities within someone else, rather than nurture our own unique talents? We can be so busy envying others and what they have, we barely recognise our own abilities and strengths.

The Power of YOU Interactive Journal’ and workshop is for YOU!

CV19 has brought about an even bigger increase in low self-esteem and mental health issues due to numerous reasons. Isolation, loneliness, domestic abuse, job loss, financial worries, fear of the unknown and even the death of a loved one to the virus.

The purpose of the Workshop is for YOU to find the strength to overcome your personal difficulties. However, depending on the severity of your problems, this journal alone may not be enough. If this is the case, hopefully the workshop will help spur you on to seek further help.

In July 2020 The Power of YOU Workshops received funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by the National Lottery Community Fund.

In January 2021,
the Compassionate Voices Community received additional funding from the National Lottery Community Fund. This means we can continue helping women who have been affected in some way by the pandemic. Find out more about the Compassionate Voices Community here

Never Underestimate the Power of YOU!

“I believe, there is a vast amount of untapped talent hidden away, because we so often fail to recognise our own true potential through a lack of self-esteem.”
