Courses for you & your well-being
So we thought here at Promise why not give people the chance to master their problems by discovering the different ways to overcome them themselves. For some people seeing a Therapist can just feel that little bit too daunting, or perhaps you don't need this kind of help. Having your own course, is simply another way to overcome your difficulties. Each course begins by talking you through the problem that you are experiencing, each of us are different & so are our feelings, but by understanding more about what you are going through is a great first step. So it explores questions that you may have like, 'Why Me?' 'What keeps my problems going?' Helping you to make sense of what has happened to you. You will get to learn about Cognitive Behavioural Therapy & the different ways that it can help you to overcome what you are facing. Learning & trying out yourself the different tools & techniques, you will get to discover that life can feel better. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy isn't a complicated kind of therapy; you will see this when you begin reading & when writing in your journals. Learning that you are not alone can make a difference too. There are no exams or tests to take, but there are exercises that can help you keep track of your progress, so that you can see how far you have come.
You may like to have the support of a Therapist or a Peer Listener with your course.

Living with & Beyond
Living the Mindful Way
Mindfulness has its roots in the far East, from ancient Buddhist practice; but you don't have to be a Buddhist or even have any beliefs to practice being Mindful. Mindfulness helps you to stay in the present moment & to accept yourself for who you are without criticism or judgment. After all, we can spend so much of our time not being aware of what's happening right now. Our minds can be filled with so much worry or anxious thinking or perhaps we feel stuck in the past, beating ourselves up with what could have been or what we should have done. You may find that you are really battling with your thoughts, or trying to push them away. In the end, this can make us feel much worse. It's as if our mind really does have a mind of its own. Before we know it, we can be left feeling so down, upset or angry, without truly understanding how we got to feel this way. Using a Cognitive Mindfulness Approach this course talks you through ways to become mindful in your own life, from practicing different meditations & breath techniques with your CD, to learning more about the way that you think & feel. You will discover that staying with your emotions, can slow your mind down & gives you the chance to step aside from these loops of thinking. In doing so you give yourself the space to think about things differently & act differently too. Mindfulness can help not just emotional difficulties but also with physical problems too.
