Confidence & Self-esteem Training

WEB offers a variety of social, emotional, health & wellbeing training including specific programmes to help boost confidence & self-esteem. We believe this important learning should be available to all and so we offer this training to both adults and children.

All courses are delivered by friendly staff to small groups of the same sex. All training is fun and informal and not like school or college. We deliver in fun ways and any literacy issues aren’t a problem. Everything we do is at your pace and you can do it your way with no pressure. There’s tea and coffee available and occasionally a scrummy cake!!

WEB Training Background & Experience:

All of WEB's training programmes have been designed and developed based on a range of coaching; NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) techniques that support positive changes; and we take our inspiration from a range of 'life improvement' authors including:  Louise Hay, David Hamilton, Thick Nhat Hanh, Eckhart Tolle, Sonia Choquette, Tony Robbins, Florence Schovel Shim, to name but a few.  All of WEB's training facilitiators have been trained to use a range of therapeutic arts and craft techniques including pottery and sandplay and are trained to Cert Ed & Training Level 3 as an absolute minimum.

WEB is a fully trained and licensed provider of ‘Heal Your Life’ workshops: License Number:TEC201610183738, based on the works of Louise Hay-‘You Can Heal Your Life’.

WEB has had several independent evaluations of it’s training service from John Moore’s University.   The most recent research into the benefits of WEB’s Pathways 2M Powerment Programme completed by Bridle S. (2015) BA Criminology & Sociology found the following:

‘The findings of my research showed extremely positive results, both staff and volunteers and service users reported the positive impacts the programme had had for them with not much room for improvement’.
