It’s a Mind Game

It’s a Mind Game is my name for my work in the area of personal development as a trainer and coach.

It’s a Mind Game is about The Human Condition, all it’s paradoxes and contradictions. What makes us tick and tock, what makes us succeed and what makes us fail, what makes us happy and what makes us sad. It has been a journey a bit like Alice’s trip down the rabbit hole, more curious the further I have gone.

What I have found, at least so far, is that all the different methodologies, techniques and systems have at their root the same idea.

I have called it It’s a Mind Game because, over the years, I have discovered that our minds do indeed play tricks on us, affecting the way we are with ourselves and others, and how well we do at getting things done.

Why a game? Once you get the hang of it, it’s quite fun.

At the moment I am preparing for, what I call, A Course in Happiness. It’s proper name is The Power of Self Esteem. Having seen the benefits I think A Course in Happiness is a far better description.

If you would like more Happiness or you ever think “There must be more to life than this” please have a look around.

I invite you to join me in the search for Happiness.

What is Self-Esteem?

Self-Esteem is ….

Your ability to feel love and compassion for yourself, whatever the situation or circumstance you find yourself in.

That is a pretty simple thing to do isn’t it? Just love yourself!

You might see from the above that there are plenty of occasions where that is easier said than done. If you look at those occasions you might also see that those occasions are prompted by events that happen outside of you.

Things we have no control over are responsible for making us feel bad about ourselves. Correct?

Well I’m sorry but not correct, at least no so correct as we might think. It might suit us to blame some of our bad feelings on others, life or our bodies, but it isn’t very empowering. In many cases those events, those shocks from life and our reactions to them are pointing us in a direction which, if we only knew how to use them, could significantly improve our experience of life.

In the Power of Self Esteem, we will show you how to take those shocks and turn them into something positive that you can use for yourself and others. Not only will we show you, we will work through it with you and send you home with the tools and resources to repeat the process every time your self-esteem gets knocked off course.

What can this course give you?

The Power of Self-Esteem

A Course in Happiness

The Power of Self Esteem is taught in a warm and supportive atmosphere. It is normally offered in small groups of six to fifteen people with a number of support team to assist if needed. Its skills are practical and simple and are based on the principles of the More To Life Programme, which in over twenty-five years has helped many thousands of people transform the quality of their personal and professional lives.

The learning is experiential in nature. Each topic or idea is explained and then practised. The practise experience is shared in groups of two or three. So, learning comes from seeing your own results and hearing the experience of others. The topics are supported during the course with audio and video material. Between the sessions small homework tasks are given such as listening to an audio or noticing what is going on around you. These tasks are not onerous in either time or effort.

Course topics and ideas
  • Where your self-esteem comes from.
  • How your self-esteem affects you.
  • What gives you low self-esteem and how to correct it.
  • How to make new choices about the way you are.
  • How to move forward from a position of self-acceptance.
  • How to create the things you want in your life from a position of personal power and integrity.
After the course

After the course each participant is given audios and a workbook to continue to practise when the course is complete.

Also, after the course students can continue to practise and deepen their work in an Enrichment Group which is a student run group with support from myself and others. These can be face to face but often these days they are on-line using Skype or Zoom.

I am also happy to offer a complimentary coaching session to assist in a more personal way. This can be face to face or on-line.
