Six-week Confidence and Resilience course for adults who are blind or partially sighted

BlindAmbition would like to invite you to join our online 6-week confidence and resilience course starting in February 2023. The course includes six two-hour interactive workshops based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) techniques. ACT aims to help people live a meaningful life while handling pain and stress – an inevitable part of life.

The course has been co-designed with individuals with lived experience of sight loss and is based on feedback received from blind and partially sighted people. You will be part of a small group and learn practical techniques that build your capacity to manage stress, boost your resilience and increase your self-confidence.
