WHAT DO WE DO

AN ANCIENT SOLUTION TO A MODERN PROBLEM

Re-Tribe offers a comprehensive Employee Assistance Program that establishes a sense of community and connection in workspaces.  We do this by forming small tribes of people who share similar challenges and experiences – creating the opportunity for accountability, acceptance and awareness. 

HOW DOES IT WORK

We co-create spaces of mental wellbeing and emotional safety

Using an integrative counselling approach and the knowledge of lived experience, each of our customised workshops honour the power of community, the wisdom in story-sharing and the importance of reflection and intention setting.
We offer competitive pricing and flexible scheduling that allows for 45 minute sessions with tribes of 3-6 people, avaiable both deliver online or in person.
We explore the following areas.

stress & anxiety

Examining the different ways that stress and anxiety can show up and how we respond.

Cultivating compassion

Exploring practical ways to invite compassion into our day to day lives and interactions.

loneliness & isolation

 Looking at the value of community and challenge the notion that our pain is not meant to be shared.  

resiliency & resource gathering

Discovering the unique ways we learn to champion ourselves and become our greatest alley.

grief & loss

Learning about the many faces of grief and explore how it shows up for us in our day to day life, in our bodies and in our understanding of ourselves and the world around us.

boundaries

Exploring the revolving door of boundaries –  the role they play in developing healthy relationships with others while cultivating new ways of self care and expression.

"Re-Tribe has been a welcome addition to our Elephant and Castle Community Hub in 2020 at a challenging time and their sessions are a valuable support to the community."

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Key questions about re-tribe

Do you offer any other support services?

Indeed we do.  We offer one on one counselling services from intensive trauma therapy to daily living support, sober coaching, accountability buddies (checking in with each other) and tribe gatherings (aka community outings)

why does re-tribe exist?

Re-Tribe exists so that people can build community and connection in a safe and shame-free way.  For years, we had a front line view of the need to encourage people to be accountable and “show up” for themselves.  In recognising and witnessing the challenges of being accountable to oneself, we wanted to take the pressure off of the individual and create an opportunity for people to attend positive lifestyle services by being accountable to others – to their Tribe. We saw that around 25% of people attend yoga, meditation classes or go to the gym regularly. Another 25% of people are forced to attend clinical services due to mental health and substance use concerns. We wondered about the other 50%; the  people who want to go to the gym but hesitate to begin until they “get in shape”, or folks who are lonely, isolated and nervous about trying new things on their own – whether it be from feelings of inadequacy, social programming or fear of the unknown.

what makes re-tribe work?

Re-Tribe was founded on the belief that community creates change and through our existence and hands on work we have seen this to be true.   We have witnessed increased ease and ability to attend classes, workshops and outings focused on self-transformation when people are accountable to their Tribe instead of solely themselves.

what makes re-tribe different?

Re-Tribe is unique in its ability to help people find their Tribes based on a common life challenge, rather than a life interest. We have found that when people express vulnerability towards one another a deeper sense of trust and belonging is built, allowing for the chance to make changes from a place of acceptance, support and guidance.
