Be The Key Groups

Be The Key Groups cover a wide range of group counselling programs for individuals in different age groups.

The programs are derived from the School of Positive Psychology, a field of study that focuses on the shift from mental illness and weaknesses to strengths, happiness and well-being, as well as the prevention of mental disorders and social problems.

Be The Key group counselling programs aim to promote self-esteem, foster self-awareness, self-control, social skills and problem solving abilities.

Groups for Adults

The upcoming group topic will be: Living Mindfully during COVID-19 Times: Coping with life’s transitions and navigating our way through times of change. 

 

During our lifetime we experience transitions, some of which are very challenging to deal with. Such changes could include a loss of a loved one, an illness, a career change, experiencing an empty nest, a sexual transition, moving or relocating, immigrating, caring for other family members, aging, divorce, and blending new families.

 

During our workshop, you will learn to listen to your inner voice at a time of transition. You will learn to unlock your doors of happiness and manage your way through challenging times. You will also learn how to make your journey of growth, wisdom and create as well as maintain a positive change in your life.

 

Working in small groups will support you throughout the process of achieving well-being, happiness and fostering personal growth.  We will engage with Mindfulness Meditation techniques, Positive Psychology and creative methods such as arts, writing and drama.  No previous experience in psychology or the creative arts is needed.
