Please contact Suzette if you would like to know more about any of the talks or the following projects:​

Mental illness - ​the ​real me

A 90-minute talk to raise awareness and give an understanding of the main mental illnesses. Suitable groups from 10 to 20 people, available day or evening.

Creative dance for the disabled or those with dementia

Studies have shown that physical and creative activity can help improve both physical and mental health. This led dance session is fun and with fun comes laughter - the best therapy of all!

What is domestic abuse?

A 90-minute talk, suitable for groups of 10 to 20 people, which aims to raise awareness and discusses the main issues around domestic abuse: How does it affect children? Why do survivors stay or return? What services are available? Includes key information and local contacts.


Helpful exercises to help us focus our attention and live in the present moment, letting go of worries and habits ​that no longer work for us, to boost our wellbeing. Could you run a 6-week course in your parish?

“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field;

it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.”

Matthew 13:31
