What is Mind Field?

Mind Field is a 7-week course, designed to help get people get into paid employment, training or education.

It has two specific aims:

  • to help people improve their mental wellbeing
  • to help gain the confidence to return to employment.

The next Mind Field course starts on Thursday 8th December 2022. We are currently enrolling for this course NOW, so please get in touch!

This course is delivered face-to-face at Dorset Mind’s Office: Ground Floor, 8 Stratfield Saye, 20-22 Wellington Road. Bournemouth. BH8 8JN.

How does the programme work?

Mind Field is a series of weekly sessions over a seven-week period. It comprises workshops and mentoring to gain employability skills alongside mental health support.

Group sessions are held on Thursdays 9.30 – 12.00. 1-2-1 Mentoring times will be arranged individually with Vicky.

Six sessions of counselling are also available if required – and you can join other Dorset Mind services, that you can view here.

Topics covered include: CV writing, job searching, applications, interview techniques, coping with anxiety, building confidence, self-esteem and wellbeing strategies.

Who can access Mind Field?

Anyone currently not in employment, who lives in Dorset and is 18+ and experiencing mental wellbeing challenges.

Additionally, you must be able to attend sessions at our Bournemouth office.

Feedback from previous courses:

“The Mindfield course has been transformational. My self awareness, confidence and self esteem have all increased significantly. So much so that I have been offered 2 jobs – one that am now working in and enjoying so much!”

Mind Field Client, July 2022.

“Vick and Cathy both worked very well together and provided a warm, relaxed, supportive information service. The perfect duo. The course really helped me come out of my shell and feel more hope about the future and opened some new doors.”

Mind Field Client, September 2022.

“From the moment I first met with Vicky & Cathy they made me feel welcome and at ease with them both. I feel honoured to have been part of this group, and really grateful for finding out about it. It’s been nice to know there is support out there, and that the support I still need is available to me in the future.”
