This course is designed to give you the knowledge to become a Breakthrough mentor;
Breakthrough mentoring supports people to develop positive experiences and relationships, enabling them to achieve, grow and develop new skills and to realise their full potential.

So what is a mentor?

A Breakthrough mentor is someone who works alongside a vulnerable person (mentee) to empower them to become independent and live a fulfilled life. They will work individually with the mentee, using activities that engage and motivate them to gain confidence, self-belief and work towards independence.

What type of person are we looking for? Our placements are unique and varied, which requires us to have a diverse group of mentors. You don’t need a set of qualifications, just special qualities that enable you to support your mentee to learn, grow and develop.

We will email out a link to access online training a couple of days before event.

Code: SGC/21/0302 Self-Care Masterclass (EVENT FULL)

A 90 min learning session delivered by an expert in the field of positive psychology that will improve your understanding and enhance your work and personal life! At times of great uncertainty and stress, it is essential that we look after ourselves to the best of our ability. If we don’t look after ourselves we won’t be able to look after others. Being serious about self-care, we give others the permission and inspiration to do the same.

The purpose of this training session is to explore the fascinating world of self-care. To identify the resources we need to look after ourselves and others better. Delivered by Paul Wilson, the course contains insights from positive psychology, the latest findings from the science of wellbeing and the lasting wisdom of ancient philosophy.

What is different about the way Paul Wilson approaches and teaches about self care?

After many years in the mental health and wellbeing field, Paul came to the conclusion that most people know what general practices are good for their wellbeing. They don't usually lack information and opportunities. What they lack is capacity and inclination - so that is where he puts his attention. He focuses upon the 'self' in self-care. He gives people reasons to self-care and then he directs them towards the ways and means. He increases people's capacity and inclination to self-care by offering them perspectives and practices that can improve their self-awareness, self-compassion or self-esteem, for example. Then they are more likely to self-care.

This course is delivered via Zoom.  You will be sent a Zoom invite nearer the time.
