The next eight-week course starts in Autumn 2020. ONLINE WEBINAR – Easy access from your home. 

Would you like to feel Happier? Calmer? Boost your Resilience (your “Bounce-back-ability”)?!

Do you just get through life, rather than feeling that each new day is an opportunity?

This pioneering course harnesses the proven science of “positive psychology”, together with various meditation and relaxation techniques, to boost your mood naturally, develop resilience and inner strengths, and improve your health and wellbeing.

Positive psychology has been shown to help increase motivation and optimism, and improve health – both short and long term. The techniques have proved particularly effective with mild to moderate depression – although you absolutely don’t need to be in a low mood to come on this course or to benefit from it!

Whatever your starting point, the strategies shared can keep you on an upward spiral of positive wellbeing.

Moreover all the techniques and “tools” we share will be there for you to call on in the future.

“The ‘From Surviving To Thriving’ course had a huge impact on my health and life – I am calm,  more confident and have a better work/life balance.  Thank you so much.”

                                                                                                                                                                                          Mrs J F, Bristol

“Mindfulness” and “Loving Kindness” meditations will also be taught, as research shows they are very effective in not only calming the mind and enabling us to manage stress more effectively, but will increase a sense of wellbeing and self-esteem.

Good breathing is another simple, yet powerful way to calm your mind, increase energy and help you cope with a busy lifestyle; this, surprisingly, is a popular tool that people use in all situations.  As a qualified yoga teacher, I have been teaching Pranayama (breathing) techniques for many years with great success.

“I’ve had a really challenging year – but your course has given me ME time, resources and hope again.” ME, Cheddar, Somerset

Confidentiality – Whatever is said in the room – stays in the room.  We all have challenges in life, and I offer a warm and safe space in which you learn these skills, ask any questions you need to, and can be assured of support, encouragement and privacy.

“I can’t thank you enough Sarena – this course and your support were absolutely a light at a very dark time; struggling with depression and bereavement was so hard.  But I learnt so much, practiced everything you taught us, and am genuinely calm, more positive and optimistic again.  And you made it fun!”

Mrs CW, Cheddar.
