A Day in the Life of our Wellbeing Groups Coordinator

Our Wellbeing Group Coordinator is Jenni Hall. 

This one is a bit weird to write - I genuinely interviewed myself so lets get down to it! 280634079_10160438002502139_4839711273202944808_n

What does the Wellbeing Group Support offer?

We offer a range of different activities for people to learn from to support their mental health, emotional health and general wellbeing. We offer Peer Support sessions which are basically people with shared experience of mental health difficulties getting together, supporting each other and we support them to learn from each other and from our wellbeing staff. Wellbeing Sessions are about learning skills to use to either maintain your mental health or to improve it when it starts to dip – such as the Gardening Group or the Crafternoon.

Then there’s the Courses. The courses give you lots of information and support you to change some habits that you may have got into, as well as encourage discussion so you can understand why you got into those habits in the first place.

We have a range of different facilitators, volunteers and group leaders who all bring such wonderful diversity to our sessions. 

What does a Wellbeing Group Coordinator do?  What’s does a typical day look like?

There is no typical day! I complete assessments in groups and 1-2-1’s too, then I may drop into a group to see how everyone is getting on and join in with activities. I have quite a few meetings with freelance facilitators to work with different organisations and local businesses to provide different activities within the groups. I enjoy the partnership work as exciting ideas come up.

I also plan for the future, think of new courses, groups or sessions we might run, as well as collect feedback to make sure we’re still being client led. We've got a couple of pilot projects running at the moment and it's so rewarding to see the changes in individuals and see the progress in the project too! 

What do you love most about your job?

2 things. My team and seeing the journey of someone from start to finish/next steps.

My team are amazing. It is honestly one of the nicest places to work, even when it gets a bit hectic and stressful, everyone is here to support each other from the top right to the bottom.

I really am humbled and privileged to work with some amazing people. Clients who take the brave step to walk into our building and start practicing courage, compassion and connection within the peer support groups and courses. I love seeing how far they grow from where they first come to see us, to when they are ready to leave us to get back to doing their lives and being their wonderful selves.


Who can access this service? 

Anyone over the age of 18 and lives in the Doncaster area.

Tell us a joke you like.

I love jokes. I put therapy based jokes on all my emails. Mental Health can be very serious so embracing the ridiculous is so important!

I read a book by Drew Tarvin called Humour that Works, and it emboldened me to bring more humour into the working day. Some days I encourage everyone to take a stretch break, dance to a silly song, or I bring in my ukuele. My absolute dream is to get everyone to play Hide and Seek on our lunch break. 

My current joke on my emails is How many Therapists does it take to change a lightbulb? 1! But the lightbulb really has to want to change. 


Is there anything else you think we should know?

It’s a quote from Brene Brown – “Sometimes the bravest thing you can do is show up.” We’ll support you to do the rest. We really want you to succeed so if something that we're doing isn't working, talk to us about it.

You can get involved in the group sessions by emailing or calling us on 01302 812190 for more information.
