ABOUT THE WELLBEING LISTENER PROGRAMME

The Wellbeing Listener Foundation Programme is inspired by an Asset-Based Community Development Approach. Participants will explore their own mental-health ‘assets’ (in other words their innate wellbeing, creativity and resilience) and will then, through deep listening, discover how to wake up the wellbeing, creativity and resilience in others.

This programme is ideal for you if you would like to learn the following:

  • Discover how to listen out for wellbeing when others are feeling worried and anxious
  • Support others to feel more connected to their true selves, their lives and their work
  • Explore the power of listening to develop more meaningful relationships with the people around you
  • Develop the foundations for sustainable community listening

The Wellbeing Listener Foundation Programme is a stand-alone programme that focuses on mental health and the promotion of self-care and wellbeing in our communities. 

We are looking for Wellbeing Listeners that are inspired to reach out and support others and to help people get back in touch with their natural wellbeing. It is a perfect fit to support the 40% of patients who visit their GP with socially based rather than medical problems.

The Wellbeing Listener Foundation Programme enables participants to gain insights into the true source of their wellbeing. As a Wellbeing Listener you will see how resilience is an in-built part of the human psychological system.

You don’t need to chase wellbeing or ‘do’ things to access wellbeing. You will discover how your Inner Compass points you back towards wellbeing. When you are in touch with your own wellbeing it is easy to help others get in touch with their wellbeing too. Listening is the best catalyst to support others access innate wellbeing.

This programme is ideal for:

  • Charity workers
  • Social Prescribers
  • Parents/carers
  • Community Connectors
  • Community Builders
  • Educators
  • Coaches
  • Leaders
  • Health Service
  • Public Services

LISTENING DURING THE CORONAVIRUS

Many of us are used to listening to others face- to-face. With the current restrictions around social distancing it's likely that you've had to adapt. Maybe you now wear a face covering or you contact people via a phone call or zoom. This might feel strange and you might want to make sure the other person feels able to connect with you - even if you can't be with them in person.

During the programme (especially during the mentoring sessions) we encourage conversations. We're keen to share best practice and to explore in how best to build and nurture connections with our clients, colleagues and family-members during the pandemic. Liz and Stu are professional listeners and regularly use the phone or zoom to engage with their clients. They'll be happy to share their experiences with those who are interested.
