6on6 Peer Support Counselling
Starts 14th April for six weeks
Body Positive House, Auckland
A 6on6 peer support group consists of a minimum of six HIV+ people plus two HIV+ trained facilitators. The group meets once a week for 6 weeks for two hours. The group meets to discuss issues that affect the lives and are of concern to HIV+ people, in a non-threatening, non-judgmental environment. It is a forum for HIV+ people to take back control over their lives and reduce any feelings of isolation.
A 6 on 6 group offers a venue where HIV+ people can learn from the shared experiences of others. Most participants say they are glad they attended the 6 on 6 because they feel they now know more about the whole HIV picture and less overwhelmed about the technical stuff around HIV.
To join the next group, please contact us
