Training Programs for Individuals & Groups
Sue offers a range of training programs for groups and individuals interested in developing mindfulness, awareness, and calm in their lives. Equally relevant across high performance arenas and personal quality of life scenarios, Sue’s courses will provide you with psychological skills training that can help you to achieve your specific goals. My programs can help you to identify what is important to your work/life, set appropriate goals in service of your identified values, and take action towards what you want to achieve.
I provide group sessions in 3 key areas: Stress Management, Mindfulness, and Pathways to Flow.
Each of these programs is outlined below. Training programs are tailor-made for:
- Business and workplace settings
- Athletes and coaches
- Performing artists
- Individuals interested in mindfulness & flow
Potential benefits of these training programs include improved resilience to stress, greater clarity of values and goals, and development of mindfulness strategies and other psychological skills.
Mindfulness is a state of total awareness in the present moment. Being fully present to your here and now experience, and accepting your experience as it presents, rather than struggling with or avoiding it, opens you to life’s possibilities. Individual and group training in the area of mindfulness can help with developing skills to be living more in the present moment. Learning to be more mindful can help us to find calm even amidst the many challenges that life can present us with.
Mindfulness programs cover simple, accessible practices to develop present-focused awareness, stillness, and calm. The framework around which I teach mindfulness skills is the psychological approach of ACT, or Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (link to ACBS site). ACT is an empirically supported modern psychological approach that helps us to accept our experience, while at the same time moving towards what is important in our lives.
Pathways to Flow
Once experienced, flow is a much sought-after state. It is one of the most treasured states of experience. And, it is attainable – once the pathways to this optimal psychological state are understood. Dr Sue Jackson has researched the flow experience over many years, using a variety of approaches. Sue’s expert knowledge of flow can help you discover your pathways to finding flow in what you do. If high performance is your goal, flow is the key to unlock your optimal performance. Tailor-made programs to help facilitate flow in your sport/work/life setting can be developed and delivered by Sue, a leading expert in the research and application of this optimal psychological state.
For more information on the psychological state of flow, see the Flow Resources section.
Stress has become a well-entrenched aspect of life in our fast-paced world. Therefore, it is important to develop a good skill-set of stress coping skills. The stress management programs will provide you with tools and strategies for helping you to effectively manage your work/life stressors. Training will include psychological and physical practices that will not only help you to manage stress, but to also move you towards living a life in tune with your values.
