Psycho-social support group to begin

2015-08-06 06:00

WITH reference to the recent article on the increase in suicides on the South Coast, psychologist Dr Berni James, and registered counsellor Marie Winterbottom, are to begin a self-management support group for the public.

The group will be aimed at individuals who are experiencing high levels of stress, and who possibly feel or think they have no support and no one to talk to.

A small fee will be charged for each session which can be paid in cash or claimed from medical aid.

The group will be facilitated by Winterbottom and supervised by Dr James.

Venues are still being negotiated and, depending on the response from the public, will possibly be in the Margate, Port Shepstone and Uvongo areas.

If you are interested, contact Winterbottom on 084 360 6941 between 8am and 5pm, Mondays to Fridays.
