The Grid: A simple to use yet surprisingly powerful methodology to help clients manage stress and achieve balance in managing life, career and critical self-care.

Today’s world paints a picture of winners and losers, the haves and the have-nots that piles increasing pressure on people of all ages and demographics to have, be and do more. The pursuit of this ideal is often a cause of unhealthy imbalance, eroded self-concept and endangered mental health.

For over ten years I have been exploring integrating, transforming and healing internal client conflict that is created when the emotional needs are not effectively reconciled with rational behaviour. Often, for my clients this comes from an overactive thinking mind that forgets it has a body and emotions.

Over the last seven years, I have developed a simple framework for developing work-life balance and resilience called the Grid. The Grid is designed as a work-life-career and self-care balance strategy/system that can be of considerable benefit to people who find themselves out of balance and getting caught in overwhelm and increasing constant stress levels as they try to keep up with the imaginary “ideal”. It works on the basis that lack of balance while socially and/or culturally accepted is still self-harming.

The Grid builds awareness, trains focus and helps guide effective behaviour change. I am finding that the Grid is incredibly simple and surprisingly powerful in working with clients on areas such as wellbeing, recovery from major setbacks, conditioning healthy resilience and developing confidence. In this master class I want to share this framework with other practitioners and explore how to integrate it into their practice to aid client recovery and growth.

Target audience 

This workshop would be suitable for those working with professional adults who struggle with health from too much stress, balancing work and life and may feel overwhelmed or anxious they can’t cope. No prerequisites are required to attend this workshop.
