The need for personal skill development is pretty unique to each person. While one person may feel they have great people skills, another may have never had the opportunity to develop them due to deficits in their environment or their brain learning differently. We also recognise and celebrate that people flourish in a huge variety of challenging environments.
Focusing on your strengths and struggles to work towards self-improvement is a process that requires huge amounts of courage and energy. Growth is a lifelong process and we often target mindset changes, self-compassion and comfort with failure.
Support can be provided from Brave HQ tutors or psychologists – and selecting which is more appropriate depends on your individual needs. Alternative therapists such as counsellors or coaches can also contribute wonderfully in this area.
Jeremy has always been drawn to one on one education. This means he doesn’t just give information, but looks at your broader skills in critical thinking, philosophy, and expression of ideas. Jeremy introduces you to advanced study tools and works towards deeper learning, rather than getting a high ATAR. In his experience the highest achievers focus on refining the way they think about their subject matter, and in making connections between what they are learning and what they know.
Counsellors utilise elements of coaching, counselling, and mentoring to assist you to grow your skills depending on what you need. Coaching to develop specific skills could focus on things like workplace communication or developing tolerance to increased physical activity. Counselling is useful to enhance self-understanding and goal setting.
Holly can work with you to develop skills that assist coping with more complex emotions and mental ill health. This could include things like tolerating strong discomfort with close relationships or increasing your daily activities when very depressed or anxious. Holly doesn’t teach people how to fit a social mould. Social problems due to communication differences between neurotypical and neurodivergent people need to be worked on by both people.
