Each presentation or workshop is tailor-made and will include as much as possible of the following: real-life scenarios, storytelling, practical strategies, exercises, props, metaphors, visual aids, hand-outs, active games, educational drama, audience participation and discussion. Questions are welcomed and encouraged throughout.
I build my presentations around 4 main topics:
1) Strengths Psychology & Mind-Set – knowing what energises us and discovering our innate personality strengths has a proven impact on self-esteem, motivation and self-confidence.
This presentation also teaches how to use the power of our minds to get what we want, in particular to feel calmer, happier and mo confident.
2) The Resilience Hot Air Balloon – the metaphor of a hot air balloon guides us through 9 steps to minimising stress and maximise self-awareness & resilience. The flame, basket, strings, ropes and balloon itself represent effective and positive coping strategies for mental health & well-being.
3) Anti-bullying & anti-abuse – this presentation explains what healthy happy friendships and relationships look and feel like as well as what can cause us to behave negatively or in ways we might regret. Also covered is how we can recognise what’s okay and not okay and what to do about it.
4) ‘FIERY situations’ – this presentation teaches the 5 aspects of healthy relationships and communication, how to bring out the best in ourselves and each other and how to deal with difficult situations or challenging conversations.
