My column in this week's Southern Star takes a closer look at Aware's CBT-based Life Skills programme, which I will be delivering in the Trident Hotel in Kinsale in a fortnight's time. Developed by Dr Chris Williams, professor of psychiatry at the University of Glasgow, Life Skills is a very user-friendly programme that helps people to learn about how we think and how these thoughts can influence our actions in helpful or unhelpful ways. As always, the column will be reproduced on this blog next week. As for Life Skills, places are still available. Booking handled by Aware; to book, please see https://ti.to/Aware/life-skills-march-2019.
