THE Women Growing Stronger program starts this month. The course, run by the Women's Health Centre, is designed to highlight personal strengths, develop new skills and build confidence.

Originally intended for victims of domestic violence, the program has grown to cover issues faced by women from all walks of life, such as depression, anxiety and trauma.

Women's Health Centre manager Sandy Prizeman said the personal development program focused on assisting women to strengthen, affirm and develop their skills and abilities.

"The program incorporates information, activities and discussion topics," she said.

"It will allow women to explore different aspects of personal growth so you can begin to make the changes that they want."

Sessions will cover topics including self-esteem, values and beliefs, managing emotions, communication, relationships and goal setting.

"We will explore what self-esteem is, both individual and society's beliefs and values and how it impacts women, how to manage emotions, different styles of communications and the different relationships in our lives," Ms Prizeman said.

Brenda Beauchamp from the Gladstone Women's Health Centre said the program would set women on a journey of self discovery.

"It is very practical and can be applied to everyday experiences," she said.

This program, which starts on February 26, runs over five weeks.

It costs $5 per session or is free for financial members.
