On the 21st September 13 Talent Coaches attended a training session on Inspiring Confidence in Young People and Mindfulness Techniques.
During the morning workshop trainer Juliette Yardley who has delivered sessions for us previously on emotional resilience, looked at what confidence is and how to effectively support young people to develop this.
Talent Coaches learnt techniques for challenging irrational cognitive thinking and for developing positive behaviours.
In the afternoon Talent Coaches worked with Ann-Marie Thomson from The Myo Project to explore what mindfulness is and to learn some techniques to support their young people and had a go at practicing mindfulness techniques themselves. One Talent Coach said that “they were really useful sessions and I will incorporate the techniques learnt into my work with beneficiaries.” The training was held in response to requests in the Learning Needs Analysis for training in Mindfulness and support with looking at building confidence with young people.
