Redditch Editorial 5th Feb, 2020   0

PREPARE to laugh and maybe cry a bit too as counsellor and comedienne Sheila McMahon returns to the Palace Theatre with her brand New Mental Health Show.

Following on from her previous sell-out shows at the Palace Theatre, the multi-award winning Sheila will this time be musing on theme of ‘communication’.

She’ll be exploring how and why we communicate in certain ways, how different responses can get in the way of healthy relationships and how we can communicate differently to get better results.

A qualified counsellor and family systemic practitioner, Sheila assures the audience there will be laughs, hugs and even a sing song.

In the run up to the show she’s been meeting different organisations In Redditch to find out just what help is available in the town, from Redditch Community Sheds to the Friendship and Support group run by Mary Jones at The Space in Winyates every Thursday morning at 11am, which is open to anyone struggling with mental health, loneliness or isolation.

“There is great support in Redditch for people who struggle with mental health or loneliness,” said Sheila.

“I’m also proud to promote the great work done by MHAG Redditch Mental Health Action Group and is looking forward to giving a mental health wellbeing talk at their annual general meeting.

Sheila, who has herself suffered with her own mental health produced an online show to reduce the sigma and encourage more understanding of the suicides.

The show is called ‘Sheila’s Online Mental Health Show’ and is available on youtube.

Her show is at the Palace on Saturday, February 15 at 7.45pm in the Studio.

Tickets are £14 from the box office in person, on 01527 65203 or online at www.redditchpalacetheatre.co.uk.
