We have a Google Group at http://groups.google.com/group/socialanxietyipswich
. The group is restricted to members, but anyone who is interested can request membership and then read posts from other members.
There are weekly sessions on Wednesday evenings from 7pm to 9.30pm (arrival from 7pm for a 7.30pm start).
Venue: Quaker Meeting House, 39 Fonnereau Road, Ipswich IP1 3JH.
Sessions will offer social opportunities to meet other people with social anxiety, to share experiences and give and receive support. At the first few sessions we intend to explore members' requirements, and give opportunities for discussions in pairs and small groups, and speaking in front of the group if members want to.
Members can participate as much or as little as they wish, and just sit and listen if they prefer. Attendance is on a drop-in basis and each session will cost no more than £3 until numbers increase, thereafter about £2, to cover the cost of the venue.
Interested people can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
for more details, and I would like to offer email support to anybody who requires additional support in making the decision to attend.
Our first session is this Wednesday 24th August and I am anticipating small numbers to begin with, so would appreciate any opportunities to spread the word so the group can be successful.
