Programme outline

3 return days in 6 months

After 4 weeks, 3 months and 6 months there are 3 return days/moments. These will be held at the Matilda International Hospital and the last meeting will be online. On these days we will stand still both in group sessions as individually to how you’ve done so far. To also feel supported in your home situation, you can bring someone to the first return day. This could be a friend, relative or partner. Most return days will take place in the weekend.
