These meetings are face to face in the city centre at Quaker Meeting House. The rooms are well ventilated, if you come to a session it is advised to wear extra clothing or bring a blanket. We need the cooperation of all members to make it as safe as possible so sessions never stop again. These have run for several weeks already.

All chairs will be 2 metres apart. If you cannot wear a face covering please inform us in advance. It is strongly advised to wear face coverings - we believe this and ventilation reduce aerosol transmission by about 70% allowing us to run sessions. The venue will ask for evidence of exemption on entry. 

Please be respectful of other members and of volunteers, they are volunteers and they do not make the 'rules' that is imposed by the venue and mostly as a result of government laws.

Tea and coffee are £1 to be paid in cash to the venue if you would like one during the break.

Yesterday's focus was perfect for me and it helped me immensely. I can not thank you enough. I look forward to all future sessions." new member.

No formal waiting list

Run by people with anxiety 

Attend as many or few as you want (temporarily not the case with face to face due to capacity)

No time limits - we've been here twelve years

What are groups like?
