We guide clients across the broad challenges in life, from relationship success to career fulfillment, and do not believe in helping our clients to make excuses, but rather holding them accountable for the steps required to achieve their goals.

Our coaching style balances an instructional approach focused on the immediate improvement of performance through tutoring skills, and also on process facilitation to unlock a person’s potential to maximise their own performance.

We adopt a solution-focused and person-centred approach, and flexibly work with the motivations, strengths and mentality of our clients. At the end of the day, we want the same thing as you, and that is for you to be the best you can be.

Participants will learn to practice accepting their present whilst committing to valued action. Though seemingly contradictory, there is increasing evidence to show that accepting ones current situation can actually help one simultaneously make positive changes.

Acceptance is learned through Mindfulness and cognitive defusion, whilst values are identified through self-reflection and Commitment through behavioural change exercises. Psychological flexibility would then help participants accept current non-ideal situations whilst developing greater clarity about personal values, and committing to positive behaviour change.

2. Learn how being mindful can help emotional regulation and acceptance

The premise of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is that our thoughts about a situation affect how we feel (emotionally and physically) and how we behave in that situation.

It is the understanding that it is not the situation itself which necessarily causes the distress, but the way in which we interpret (think about) it. By learning to challenge and modify the unhelpful thoughts and also change maladaptive behaviours, we can learn to change how we feel about certain situations.

This course will apply CBT in a correctional setting and guide participants to apply it with individuals with mental health conditions.

What you will learn by the end of the course (objectives):
1. Apply CBT to self and others
2. Practice cognitive and behavioural strategies in a correctional settings

As the name implies, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) focuses on being brief and on solutions, not the problem at hand. Even the most chronic problems have periods or times when the difficulties do not occur or are less intense.

By focusing on such times when problems are less severe or even absent, we realise that people do many positive things that they are not fully aware of. SFBT uses powerful questioning tools such as the miracle question, finding exceptions, coping and compliments.

This course teaches one to incorporate SFBT into their daily lives and help themselves and their inmates develop better relationships and become more productive
