One of the greatest challenges is teaching adults and children the skills to understand and manage their own emotions and mental health.
CBT MENTAL HEALTH SKILLS THAT ARE EFFECTIVE, FUN, MEMORABLE AND EASY TO USE.
To use at HOME, in EDUCATION, in the WORKPLACE, and in SOCIAL and HEALTH settings.
Our passion is PROACTIVE MENTAL HEALTH.
To reduce the impact of emotional distress by teaching evidence based and effective skills proactively.
To provide children, young people and adults with the skills to recognise their own thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and to monitor and manage their own emotions and mental health.
To use our clinical expertise and proven strategies to enable non-experts to teach the skills.
To distil complex psychological theory and to make it fun, engaging and effective.
