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.

These 50 minute coaching sessions with coaches will assist council staff in coming up with strategies and action plans to maintain and build their wellbeing and resilience. Unlike counselling which provides a safe space to explore worries and concerns, these confidential coaching sessions will help staff come up with individual plans to help them build their resilience, understand what they can do to enhance their wellbeing and overcome current and future obstacles. There are activities and exercises that wellbeing coaches can also give people to work through in their own time if they would find it useful.
Please note these sessions will be delivered by skype or telephone. Your coach will contact you to confirm the best method for you.
