Speaking Connections: Growing confidence in conversation

Speaking Connections: conversation practise

With Speaking Connections, you'll start growing your confidence in social situations so you can more easily achieve what’s truly important to you in life.

  • We're bringing understanding people together who all have similar feelings and challenges and that means this is a warm and encouraging space that feels safe and reassuring to practise in.
  • It’s ok to progress at your own pace. This can mean quietly observing before choosing to take part, and you'll be in good company.
  • You'll leave the session feeling proud that you've stepped outside of your comfort zone and positively determined to take your next comfort zone stretch.

“Together, we’re taking small, supported steps to stretch our comfort zones, little by little”

This is your space for practising conversations with people one to one and in small groups. Here, you get a choice of activities designed to slowly stretch your comfort zone as you’d like to.
Speaking Connections - Would I lie to you?

“I'm so glad I found you. It's so nice to know that others are going through similar things. What I like most is being able to talk to others who have similar issues, learning how to overcome those using different techniques to control anxiety. It's been a great way of making new friends with similar stories. You are an inspiration.”

- Claire


“I felt that the group put my mind at rest when thinking about speaking out loud. Being around like minded people made me feel less isolated and boosted my confidence.”

- Fi


“I like the openness of the group and the way they greeted me when I first started a few months ago. They continue to show an interest and make me feel welcome.”

- Jake
