Seminars & Workshops

Generating Positivity & Confidence.

We provide open and in-house interactive seminars on topical subjects. Topics such as Change and Resilience are particularly valuable now, in supporting us all in adapting to the changes and disruption caused by Covid-19. 

Open & In-House Seminars

A good talk is uplifting, motivating, inspires confidence and sends us off with an overall sense of wellbeing and positive intent. Now more than ever, we all need re-enforcing of our coping mechanisms and good techniques to get the most from them.

Understanding and Working Through Change

Making sense of it and adapting well

Change is a little word with a big meaning and all of us encounter it many times through life. Since Covid 19 the whole world is experiencing disruption and change to our personal, home and work lives.

  • Be able to make sense of their emotional journey

Finding our New Identity in Response to Change

Big change can have big impact – even on our very identity

An unexpected consequence of big change, such as being made redundant, the end of a relationship, windup of a business, moving location and many many more, is the jolt it can cause to our identity. Any big change will change how we see ourselves.

Following the seminar participants will:

  • Have explored the concepts of change and transition
  • Understand what goes into forming our sense of identity

Making our Resilience Work Hard for us

Understanding resilience, tapping into it and tools to take away…

Our resilience is an important tool in our armoury to help us get through the challenges and disruptions in our personal and work life. It is also recognised as one of the four key components of wellbeing.

More Info

Life doesn’t always go smoothly but as humans we have an amazing capacity to draw on our inner resources and deal effectively with issues and situations that arise, while also protecting our wellbeing. We call this our resilience. As with many things, we don’t realise our full potential in this area. This seminar will explore where our resilience comes from and how we can maximise it. We will look at the factors that promote resilience, examine our own resilience and learn tools and strategies to make it work hard for us.

Following the seminar participants will:

  • Have an understanding of resilience – where it comes from and how it works
  • Be able to consciously choose their response in the face of adversity
  • Have completed an exercise to assess their own resilience
  • Know what areas they would like to focus on to build greater resilience and take the first step.
  • Come away with practical tools and strategies
