Do you have some days when you are ‘on top of your game’, enthused, focused, working at your best? And other times when its not like that, when life and work seems challenging and overwhelming? The difference between the two isn’t just what is happening in the outside world. It’s more to do with what we do on the inside. We can learn how to control what we’re doing, so we have more good days and fewer bad days.
While we are gifted at birth with the most amazing bio-chemical computer, an operator’s manual isn’t provided. So we learn what we can about how to think, communicate, manage our feelings, and behave through the conscious efforts of parents, family and teachers. Perhaps (and more importantly) we also learn, but not consciously, by modelling or copying thinking patterns and emotional and behavioural responses of others. For some this delivers positive life-enhancing results, for many a mix of good and less useful, while others develop patterns that are limiting personally and socially. These patterns are also influenced by our own responses to our life experiences, and the decisions we make as a result.

And that gift comes with a lifelong, free contract, and with access to unlimited useful apps!

We can have more ‘good days’, and fewer ‘bad days’, and the ‘bad days’ we have can be easier to manage and easier to change.

Underpinned by the Pareto Principle – focusing on the 20% that gives the 80% of benefit, the courses aim to help us to develop our own ‘inner psychologist’. They include practical strategies for mental maintenance, psychological keep fit, and emotional first aid that have been tried and tested over many years in live training and 1-1 coaching.
