A 3-day course.
When use of mood altering substances gets out of control it ruins the person's life - until we help them regain control.
The maladaptive use of mood altering substances (importantly, including alcohol) may easily devastate the life of the user and of those around them. Although onset may be insidious the effect can be far reaching and difficult to reverse without skilled and determined intervention. This course covers the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy solutions.
A 3-day course.
This course describes an organized way of helping people to recognize their lifestyle problems and to do something about them.
Principally it addresses behavior about which the client has mixed feelings: drinking and substance misuse for example, and a whole array of issues relating to common mental and physical health problems as well. Issues from taking psychoactive medication through to, in particular, sleeping, exercising and eating more healthily can all be addressed actively and constructively.
A 6-hour 'online anytime' course.
This is a radical new course, the first time we have produced a course which is for mental health professionals and also for the end-user, people seeking good quality sleep in this case. It is priced to be proper value for the end so you can recommend it to your clients if you choose to, and supervise their progress through it.
It covers all the key areas and a few more besides: your relationship with your bed, the sleep drive, the circadian rhythm, sleep myths, sleep hygiene factors, ‘napping’, how to get to sleep, the disruptive habits of partners, what to do on waking up in the middle of the night, biphasic sleep patterns, beliefs about sleep that can undermine us, as well as (briefly) related physical or biological factors relating to sleep and wellbeing.
