Supporting mental wellness through talks, workshops & more
Aspire Counselling regularly hosts events, and workshops as part of its psych-education programmes. These events are aimed at empowering people to understand and make informed decisions about their mental wellness.
Through a variety of means, we’ll share our knowledge with you and support your wellness and personal growth. Unless otherwise stated, these events can be beneficial on their own, and you do not need to be an existing client of Aspire Counselling, or participating in therapy and counselling.
Choice Theory, developed by Dr. William Glasser explains that our behaviour is driven by our own decisions and that relationships are key to how we act. We learn that the only person’s behaviour that we can control is our own and that we as individuals have a choice as to how to relate to others in any given situation.
Choice Theory teaches that we have seven caring behaviours: supporting, encouraging, listening, accepting, trusting, respecting and negotiating differences. To the contrary, we also have seven deadly behaviours that whilst they appear to work to some degree, can do us more harm than good and prevent us achieving our goals and happiness. These are: criticising, blaming, complaining, nagging, threatening, punishing, and rewarding/bribing to control.
At Aspire Counselling we can teach you how to make the best choices for yourself.
