Creating a plan of action is a key ingredient in any form of success, whatever that may look like to you. Once we are clear on what we would like to achieve, we can reverse engineer the process, and create a plan of actionable steps that will take us closer to our desired outcome. In this exercise, Alister will help you create your own personal "success path" through visualization and a self reflective writing task.

All too often in life we get caught in the trap of self-sabotage. We belittle ourselves and forget to recognize our strengths. When we focus is on negative parts of our self, our energy levels drop. In this exercise, you will become aware of any patterns of negative self-talk you have, whilst creating new belief systems and positive patterns. As you start to re-focus on positive elements of yourself and life, you will become more confident in your ability to reach your goals.

Stress can often make you focus on your perceived weaknesses and flaws. When you’re feeling stressed or overwhelmed, it’s common to end up criticising and blaming yourself. A way of building up our resilience to stress is to learn to recognise your negative thought patterns and actively work to refocus your mind. In this exercise, we will use the technique of positive self-talk. I will help you to identify some of your key personal qualities and strengths. All you need for this exercise is a pen and paper.

When we are very stressed, we can feel unable to focus and think straight, wrapped up in worries about what may or may not happen. This can lead you to feel overwhelmed, anxious or panicked, making difficult situations even harder to cope with. One way of regaining your mental focus from an intensely emotional state is through the use of grounding techniques. In this session, Dr Catherine will show you a simple technique you can use when feeling overwhelmed to calm yourself and refocus.
