Knowledge, skills and awareness for human beings

People are sometimes logical, emotional, practical and creative creatures. When it comes to individual perceptions, interpretations and actions things are never just black or white.

As human beings we're as different on the inside as we are on the outside and there's a whole world of difference ready to be recognised and explored rather than judged and labelled.

This diversity is our biggest challenge and also our biggest strength. However very few of us are ever taught more about the way we work as human beings.

We work with people and organisations to provide learning & development experiences that are designed to support;

  • increased self awareness 
  • improved well-being and self management skills
  • enhanced communication and collaboration skills
  • enhanced performance in everything you do

for the benefit of individuals, families, communities and organisations.

Our person centred approaches means we're as comfortable working with people in homes and communities as we are in a classroom, training room, board room or prison cell. Our down to earth delivery provides engaging and useful approaches that are transformational in results. This is the stuff we should've all been taught at school.

Why work with us?

If you want to make positive changes in your life or work and not sure how to start,  if you're fed up with the same old patterns repeating themselves. leaving you feeling powerless to do anything about it.

Would it be useful to 'be at your best' more of the time? To get clearer about a future that's just right for you?

Or maybe you're looking for a way to approach the 'people' issues in your organisation or team?

To increase engagement and well-being, to improve performance and productivity? To prevent conflict and misunderstanding to create the kind of teams that can support, challenge and assert themselves without those patterns of drama?

If you're nodding along right now, then we can help.

Why we do what we do

Wherever we are and whatever we're doing our 'state of mind' plays a huge role in our all experiences, yet very few of us are taught to get the best from our own psychology.

The way we relate to ourselves and others, our behaviour and interpretations have a huge impact on the quality of all our lives yet very few of us learn about "how" we think, because "what" we think tends to get in the way. Once emotion kicks in logic can leave the room and we're pushed into habits of reaction, rather than conscious choices in the here and now.

The trouble is we're never taught to understand 'how' this happens and 'how' it could be different. Instead we tend to focus on external solutions to solve internal problems, when most problems could be dissolved rather than solved. Sometimes like swallowing a spider to catch a fly, we can create more and more problems with every solution we find.

Over the last 25 years we've had the privilege of meeting and working with some unique and inspiring people. One of the many things we've learnt is that we're all very very different. Not better, not worse but very different.

Understanding this difference can lead to huge improvements in our abilities to

  • Understand and manage our self better (Have less bad days and more good ones, get clearer about what you want in life and actually do something about it)
  • Understand and communicate better with others (When you recognise the difference in others you're less likely to judge or label, and more likely to be able put things in a way that makes sense to them.)
  • Improve performance and productivity (Knowing how you do things well means you can choose to do it more often and even show others how to do it. Utilise your resources effectively and work smarter (not harder)).

How we do it

Through applied and accredited training events, and 1-1 coaching and psycho-education, we can provide you and your organisation with the skills and approaches that can be the difference that makes the difference in everything you do.

Our approach is based on years of experience of working with people at the sharp end of change. We use models from psychology, learning, NLP, transactional analysis, person centred counselling and more to help people understand more about what makes human beings tick.

Our unique delivery brings the concepts to life in a way that engages and connects to your own experiences. We pride ourself on our ability to connect to people from all backgrounds and use what we know to make the learning relevant, enjoyable and above all useful.
