Counsellor Joy Black welcomes you to The Shed’s Phoenix Program

By the Tin Can Bay Community and Men’s Shed

The Shed’s Phoenix Program is all about promoting health and wellbeing and, because this is such an important issue facing many members of the community, this program is now being run on a fortnightly basis.

Last month’s sessions focused on anxiety and depression, and drug and alcohol addiction. The next sessions will be held on June 9 and 23, and will be co-hosted by Joy Black and Bruce Whelan.

Bruce brings a wealth of knowledge to the sessions – he is a retired GP who has had years of professional experience running clinics for drug and alcohol-related addictions and other issues.

Joy is a professional counsellor and Wellness and Lifestyle Coach, with an extensive background in nursing. Joy currently runs a professional individual consultancy service in Tin Can Bay, as well as personal development courses in small group sessions.

Information is presented by way of slides, handouts and general group discussion.

These sessions are free and available to any member of the community to attend.  All we request is a gold coin donation for tea/coffee, etc.

In addition to our regular activities including chess/Rummikub, lathe /scroll saw classes, Macrame and wood working, members now have the opportunity to learn the various facets of welding.

For information on any of the above, please call Rob Jones, our Shed Manager, on 0419 663 272 or pop in and see us weekdays between 9am-1pm in the CityFarm /Community Complex area, Tin Can Bay.
