Stress less

A six-week therapy group aimed at ‘type-E women’ – “The ones who try to be everything to everybody,” according to program facilitator Ellie Bolgar – begins next month at Sources Community Resource Centre.

The program runs Oct. 13 until Nov. 17, with sessions from 7-9 p.m.

“Most of the participants are hard-working women who are trying very hard to balance so much in their lives – jobs, families, maintaining a home,” Bolgar said. “They’re juggling a lot of demands, and they need  to learn to work off that stress.”

The program, which is free, is in its fourth year, and was previously funded by government grants. This year’s program, however, was funded through donations from women who took the course previously – about 25 women in total, Bolgar said.

Sources is located at 882 Maple St.
