Held between our base at Cricket Green Medical Practice and across some of our fantastic Community Partner Venues, our workshops aim to support you to develop a whole host of skills to promote resilence and wellbeing.
Self-Confidence and Assertiveness Workshop
Self-confidence and assertiveness affects almost every aspect of our lives and these attributes are considered to be indispensable skills that are required for a sense of balance and fulfilment. The lack of self-confidence and assertiveness can seriously reduce the quality of a person’s life and if unchecked they can lead to complex mental health difficulties. Hence, our workshop has been designed to help you gain a better understanding of various aspects of self-confidence and assertiveness and to identify the obstacles that might be responsible for a decrease in either. You will also be introduced to various strategies and skills that can help you build and enhance self-confidence as well as assertiveness.
Self-Care and Relaxation
Although self-care and relaxation seem to be simple concepts in theory, we tend to overlook them despite their vital role in mental health and well-being. Hence, the self-care and relaxation workshop has been designed to explore and highlight the importance of the five central domains of self-care, namely: physical, psychological, emotional, social and spiritual. We will also look at a range of techniques and strategies that might resonate with you and help you to expand and further develop your current modes of self-care and relaxation.
Managing Anger and Irritability
Although anger is a fundamental and natural human emotion, it can lead to various problems if it gets out of control. This popular workshop has been devised with the aim to provide you with a broader understanding of anger, its functions and its social perception. We explore various forms of communication styles and will look at how anger, communication and individual rights are linked. You will be introduced to techniques and strategies that enable you to identify your own triggers in everyday life and to develop a personal set of skills in order to manage anger and irritability more constructively.
Coping With Stress
As the world around us has grown more complex over the past decades, there is an increasing number of life demands that can elicit feelings of too much mental and emotional pressure leading to stress. Stress can affect how you feel, think, behave and how your body works. Some of the most common signs of stress include feeling overwhelmed, irritable, anxious, experiencing headaches, muscle tension and pain, tiredness, sleep problems, increased drinking and smoking, snapping at people and acting unreasonably. Although stress cannot always be prevented, there are a number of things that you can do to manage stress better. Our coping with stress workshop aims to provide you a holistic understanding of stress and its cumulative effects on your body and mind. You will explore your current coping strategies and you will be assisted in developing and adopting new techniques and tools to cope with both expected and unexpected stress more effectively.
Maintaining Your Wellbeing
One of the inevitable aspects of life is change and that our experiences are unpredictable and often demanding in nature. These continuous changes in our circumstances can be associated with challenging emotions and mental processes that can significantly affect our wellbeing. Hence, the managing your wellbeing workshop has been designed to explore the main factors that play an important role in our wellbeing, such as expectations, guilt, anger and stress. We will discuss the vital aspects of self-care and self-compassion, and their relationship with our wellbeing and health in general. You will be introduced to a range of techniques and strategies that can help you to develop new tools to maintain your wellbeing more constructively.
Reaching Your Potential
The phrase ‘reaching your full potential’ is often associated with achieving greater levels of success exclusively in one’s professional life. However, an increasing number of individuals experience a lack of a true sense of life satisfaction and fulfilment despite their often very successful career development. Hence, the reaching your potential workshop has been developed to help you to explore a deeper, broader and more balanced sense of your full potential. You will be introduced to various techniques and strategies that can assist you with overcoming the barriers to reaching your potential, deepen your self-awareness, utilise your creativity, increase your motivation and boost your resilience.
