Cold water dips for depression, anxiety or chronic pain

April 30th and May 7th at 6pm to 7pm.
A two session course for those with mild to moderate depression, anxiety or chronic pain. I've developed this course to make a very simple introduction to cold water immersion which is easily accessible to everyone. No need for a GP referral. We don't cover the full in depth learning as we do on the introduction courses, all we do is meet and get in the water without any fuss. You don't need to swim far and we can stay in the shallows. No special kit needed only motivation to get to the lake twice. You will be fully supported to get in safely, ensuring you stay in for the appropriate amount of time and then if needed supported with getting dressed and warm again. I am running this in the hope that the two sessions encourage you to attend a more formal intro session and then the weekly community swim clubs though no pressure at all. This session is priced very cheaply as I would like to encourage all to give this a go safely with a qualified coach. April 30th and May 7th 6-7pm
