In Past Events

Thrive events

Thrive webinars and workshops are meticulously curated by brainstrust and hosted by leading experts to help you tackle the challenges that make life with a brain tumour so hard.

So that you can be more informed, more engaged, and cope better, you can now access brainstrust workshops online. Thrive events are more focussed than a Meet Up – if you are feeling lost or confused, need practical information and would like a deeper dive into specific aspects of life with a brain tumour, then Thrive events are for you.

Thrive, with the skills to deal with the overwhelm – Thursday August 6th, 2pm-3.30pm

When there is a shift in dynamic, we can’t always cope. We hold onto what we know and what has worked in the past for us. Feeling overwhelmed does not reflect badly on your ability- it can show that you really care. Focusing on looking after tasks can distract us from looking after ourselves so we have less energy and drive to perform at our best. This webinar will help you to address the overwhelm, when living with a brain tumour.

This webinar will be hosted by Helen Bulbeck, Director of Services and Policy at brainstrust and Jodie Eveleigh, brainstrust Support Specialist.

Webinars with brainstrust

Signing up for a webinar is simple. We’ve put together some guidance here! If you have any questions please email

These webinars are a little different to those you may have attended previously! They are deliberately kept to small numbers, so that everybody can make the most of the experience by interacting with each other and asking questions (although there is no pressure to share, and if you would like to keep your camera or microphone turned off that is fine).  If you sign up but can’t attend, please do let us know so that we can offer the place to someone else.
