Frazzled Cafe in Merseyside Face to Face Sessions

Frazzled Cafe in Merseyside

Frazzled Cafe is excited to announce an expansion of our successful face to face meetings for people in the Merseyside area. Led by our amazing Volunteer Team, we are now running two sessions every Tuesday, where local residents can share, listen and be supported in a confidential space.

Similar to our online sessions, these face to face meetings are a non-judgemental and confidential space where people who are feeling frazzled have the chance to be heard. Speaking is optional, and silences can often be welcome.

Meetings take place every Tuesday at:
Netherton Park – Neighbourhood Centre, Chester Avenue, Netherton, L30 1QW
Morning session – 11:00-12:00
Evening session – 18:45-20:00

Walking into a new place for the first time can be tricky, so one of our friendly Frazzled Cafe team will be there to welcome you and help you feel comfortable.

As there are limited spaces per meeting, please sign up via the booking page to attend, and cancel your place either using the booking instructions or by emailing if you can no longer come so that someone on the waiting list can take your space. For any questions please email


Frazzled Cafe Facilitated meetings last for one hour and start with a run-through of our guidelines. This is to ensure confidentiality is respected and that there is a safe environment for those that would like to share.

Each meeting opens and closes with a short mindfulness exercise. You don’t need to ever have tried mindfulness before, and your participation in these exercises is completely optional. After the mindfulness exercise, if you would like to speak, all attendees are encouraged to talk about how they are feeling, or to borrow one of Ruby’s expressions, ‘explain what the weather conditions are like in your head’.

Attendees usually speak for a few minutes to ensure everyone that would like to have the opportunity to speak. You can of course speak more than once, don’t worry about these timings, the facilitator is there to make sure all who want to speak can and that there is room for all voices to be heard. Speaking is optional. If you would just like to listen, that is perfectly OK. In all meetings, and in between people speaking, we expect some silences and those are normal.

The Facilitator’s role is to ensure everyone that would like to speak gets a chance to, that the topics of conversation are appropriate for the space and that attendees are both present and respectful of the space and one another. After the closing mindfulness exercise and the end of the meeting, we recommend attendees take a few minutes to reflect and decompress before returning to their usual routine.
