Lets-Talk-Banner

What other people say and do affects us constantly, whether they are family, friends, neighbours or colleagues. These relationships can be wonderful. They can also be difficult, confusing, stressful and tiring.

Let’s Talk can help. Everyone in this Frome community group has had some simple training in Restorative Conversations and learned some skills which have made a big difference.

We have a printed toolkit which explains some of those skills so that you can use them too. They might help you change a difficult conversation into a useful one, or help you work through something worrying with a family member or a neighbour.

These monthly open sessions are an opportunity for people to practise some of those skills together in a safe setting. If you’re not familiar with it already it will be helpful to look at the toolkit before you come along.

If you have any questions about these sessions, please contact Hannah stopford hstopford@frometowncouncil.gov.uk

Thursday 27th June 6.30pm – 8pm 

I-Messaging

This session is designed to offer tools to help you open a tricky conversation in a way that is most likely to lead to a positive outcome. ‘I’ messaging is a tried and tested approach for those who are experiencing conflict with anyone in their lives, from a family member, neighbour or colleague. By opening a conversation that comes from your own perspective, the other person is less likely to feel blamed or attacked.

Learning how to slow down, identify your feelings and take this initiative can enable you to build confidence in dealing with all kinds of emotional situations in your life.
