School of Resilience

Get stronger, more resilient and happier –

“Happiness is a by product of character. In people who are developing a strong character, there is a dramatically higher level of happiness than those who live to chase after the next good time.”

- PAT HOLT AND GRACE KETTERMAN. MD

COUNSELLING FOR CHILDREN

Our vision and mission are to help our students to build psychological resilience and emotional intelligence to cope with ups and downs, and bounce back from challenges, to help children to develop their skills and habits that will help them deal with challenges later in life, during adolescence and adulthood.

PSYCHOLOGICAL RESILIENCE

Every child is unique and all children are capable of extraordinary things. Greatness, success, and happiness lie in all of them. Everyone faces different challenges on the way. Helping children and teenagers to learn valuable skills to ensure these challenges make them more resilient. Resilience can be strengthened at any age. Resilience is the ability to bounce back from stress, cope with traumas, challenges, tragedy adversity, thus becoming not just more adaptable and flexible, but also more curious and brave.

During times of stress, the body undergoes changes: Blood pressure increases, adrenaline, and cortisol surge through the body, and your heart rate increases. This is useful to us in the short-term to make us faster and more alert, but in the long-term, it can weaken our immune system, and greatly increase our proneness to anxiety, depression, and other health problems. You need to take action in managing your child’s stress particularly if you notice the following: He or she becomes more emotional, withdrawn or needlessly defiant, suffers from a loss of appetite, over-eating, becoming angry, hostile or resentful, sudden changes to their sleeping routine, difficulty concentrating, headaches, stomach issues, and signs of anxiety and/or depression. We provide counselling for children to boost their Psychological Resilience and Emotional Intelligence, so your child can manage their stress during changing, stressful, and challenging circumstances.

Too often parents will overlook the importance of providing their children with the tools for gaining rewarding life experiences and the lasting happiness that follows, and will instead seek out providing only short-term, fleeting moments of “getting what you want”. You can dramatically improve your child’s chances of genuine happiness, just by the way you raise him or her.

EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

How can you ensure your child’s happiness lasts into and continues throughout adulthood?

Happiness isn’t gained from single, momentary instances of gratification, it’s achieved through working toward worthwhile, long-term goals.

The latest research on happiness provides some powerful insights: External circumstances don’t affect our happiness a great deal once our survival, safety, and basic comforts are met. Our genes are a contributing factor in happiness, but so are the habits we’ve formed around our mood. It might seem counterintuitive to imagine happiness as a habit, but by the time we’re adults, many of us have settled into the habit of being unhappy.

It’s important to make habits that create happiness part of our lives so that they become automatic and act to protect us instead of having to regain lost ground after the fact. Some of these habits are learned from outside sources, the habits taught to us by our elders: being diligent in our work, valuing the relationships we share with others, maintaining our physical well-being, being responsible with our finances, and contributing something of value to our society. Some habits, on the other hand, are learned from within, such as managing our moods and cultivating optimism.

How can counselling for children provide your son or daughter with the healthy habits and attitudes that lead to ongoing happiness?

Too often do we buy into bad habits such as not observing our self-worth or trusting in our intuition. Lasting happiness is achieved through re-learning the good habits that we knew as children before we began listening to the unhelpful limitations we’ve placed on ourselves.

Psychological resilience is the capacity for an individual who has developed psychological and behavioral capabilities that allow them to maintain their calm during turbulent periods and to be able to bounce back from the crisis without being burdened by the long-term baggage associated with the incident.

Resilience isn’t simply the consequence of overcoming trauma but also comes with the routine stressors of everyday life. A healthy amount of obstacles in one’s daily life is critical in developing resilience, not trying to avoid stress altogether. Finding this “correct” amount of stress can be difficult, as it varies from person to person, but resilience is simply the capacity to integrate the good circumstances and the bad and to retain normative developments that occur throughout the critical stages of life. Resilience doesn't simply mean to overcome a deeply stressful situation, but to also be able to come out of the other side of adversity as a more competent and resourceful person.

School Of Resilience Workshop

This counselling workshop is developed for children, teenagers and parents/caretakers to equip you with life-skills, develop abilities to cope and thrive in the face of negative events, challenges, and adversity.

Our counselling in Brisbane is about raising awareness and understanding, utilizing real-world scenarios and challenges to grow and develop into an enduring and resilient human-being.

In life, there will always be a hardship, and it won’t get any easier, but we become stronger and more resilient!
