Training, Workshops, Presentations, Coaching and Consultancy

Attitudes towards people struggling with mental health issues would seem to be improving through advertising campaigns but there is still a stigma that is often borne out of a lack of knowledge. Training can help address this gap which is likely to have a positive effect for sufferer and trainee. My personal view is that we are all human and any one of us can develop a mental health issue, so the more we understand about it the more compassionate we are likely to be to others and ourselves.

Having training and experience in a wide range of mental health issues means I am able to offer a bespoke service, tailored to your requirements. It could be that you are being asked to work with people who are struggling with mental health issues and unsure how best to approach this. Not feeling prepared can be anxiety-provoking, and training or consultancy can help safely underpin this process.

I have researched and also work in the area of online communications, and have responded to the curiosity surrounding working in this way by offering bespoke and workshop trainings, as well as business coaching, to professionals contemplating working online. I also run a campaign for positive online communications called The Netiquette Revolution.

Diamondleaf Training are currently offering a ‘Resilience Workshop’ to help support staff in organisations and businesses. The workshop incorporates psycho-education about how human beings deal with stress, anxiety and depression in these modern times as well as an understanding and taster of well researched yoga techniques to help empower us. This unique workshop offers access to two experienced professionals in the mental health and yoga field.

Previous well received trainings, workshops and presentations are: Resilience workshops, Pluralistic Therapy, Diversity, Working in Private Practice, and Contemplating working therapeutically online (see testimonials below).

RESILIENCE WORKSHOP – 9.30-12.30pm Saturday 22nd September 2018 Ridgewood Community Centre, Yate

If you have ever wondered why we struggle with issues like stress, anxiety and depression and whether there is anything we can do to help ourselves then this workshop is for you.

Co-facilitated by experienced yoga teacher Caroline Carty we are excited to present a half day workshop combining an understanding of how evolution may have left us badly set up to deal with the stresses of modern life, with a taster of yoga techniques that many therapists use to help support our mental health.

PSYCHOLOGICAL RESILIENCE is described as ‘an individual’s ability to successfully cope with adversity and stress’ and this workshop aims to help empower us to become more resilient.

How I Work

how I provide trainingAs a counselling psychologist you can be sure that I am working ethically and with the most up-to-date research and advice. Depending on your needs, I also have access to other mental health professionals who will work with me and/or who I can consult. I am mindful that talking about mental health issues can be difficult and you can be sure that this will be managed safely and with sensitivity. I am also very aware that everything occurs in its own unique context, which often includes an organisational setting, and that this can also require attention.

I currently offer; staff training, workshops, presentations, talks, consultancy and packages of training which I can adapt to meet your needs. Some of the issues that people can struggle to understand are; Loss, grief and bereavement, anxiety, depression, anger, personality disorders, learning difficulties, self-harm and suicidal ideation, for example. There are of course wide variations within these categories (and not all are classified as mental health disorders) but training will be tailored to meet the needs of the group. I work with other professionals as appropriate.

Prices are competitive and on a sliding scale depending on practicalities such as provision of training facilities, audience size, how many trainers will be required etc. I am happy to discuss your needs and provide a quote. Please feel free to contact me.

Can highly recommend this training. Really informative & Practical. Carole’s delivery is warm & relaxed and allowed lots of time for questions. (Working therapeutically online)

I appreciated both the structure and relaxed nature of the workshop and the opportunity to get involved in discussion. (Working therapeutically online).

This workshop reaches the parts other workshops miss (Yoga & MH)

I would definitely recommend the session and hope there would be more. Would be useful in lots of different environments (schools, offices, workplace). (Yoga & MH)

A helpful insight into the way the body and mind can influence each other, and how we can actively help ourselves reduce the impact of anxiety and depression on our daily lives (Yoga & MH)

The helpful links to supportive organisations and resources both during the morning and in your correspondence afterwards has been valuable to me as a newcomer to the online world. It has provoked me to read and research topics I had otherwise not thought interesting or relevant. You helped open my eyes to the value of working both in an asynchronous way and live to accommodate the needs of our varying clients. (Working therapeutically Online)

I found the workshop very interesting and quite reassuring. The exercises we were shown are definitely going to be useful to me. (Yoga & MH)
