Our Courses

Whatever your reason for seeking help we recognise that women face challenges in their lives that are distinct from those of men. At Kyra you can access a wide range of activities, training, counselling, information and support to suit different needs – most courses are free of charge. We offer a safe, welcoming and supportive environment to help you make the changes you need, at your own pace.

Joining a course

Most courses at Kyra Women’s Project are free and all are facilitated by qualified volunteers. If you feel you can give a donation it would help keep these and future courses free. It is important to book a place as spaces are limited. We are here for women who may have completed courses within other organisations and need support to put into practice what they have learnt, or who feel they need additional skills or information to take their first steps towards change. Whether it’s building your self-esteem, managing stress or improving your skills for work, there are many courses to choose from each month. See our monthly newsletter for more details.

Building Self-esteem

A healthy self-esteem is an important part of our wel-being. We offer the ESTA Programme, which has two main objectives. The first is to encourage a better understanding of our self-esteem and self-efficacy. The second is to teach practical skills and techniques, enabling changes in thinking and behaviour to improve self-esteem. These strategies help encourage change in behaviour and thoughts that are linked with low self-esteem. Details & Bookings

Counselling at Kyra

Kyra’s counsellors are available to our members on various days and at various times. We offer free counselling to women who feel they would benefit from a confidential, empathic listening space. Click here to find out more.


Everyone is welcome to our weekly drop-in sessions. We are currently meeting women face to face, under Covid secure conditions. We are running these sessions on Tuesday afternoon and Thursday mornings. Please email laurac@kyra.org.uk to book a place.

Social Activities

Our social activities are a fun, relaxed way of engaging in a shared interest, which nurtures your self-confidence and social interactions. We hold regular activities to suit many different interests: poetry, art, crafts, cookery. Whether you want to manage stress, need a form of escape, meet with others, challenge yourself or just enjoy a shared moment, you’re welcome to join one of our free regular social activities. See the events calendar or view the monthly newsletter for details.
