A Positive Start - Carlisle
Company Profile / Additional Information
WHAT WE DO ? A Positive Start is what we teach. WHO WE ARE? Positive Training providers is who we are!
A Positive Start is a personal development programme especially designed for young people between the ages of 11 -24 years of age.
Born out of passion for positive change, together with the personal, edcuational & career experiences & skills of author Deborah J Watson, the programme follows a UNIQUE STRUCTURED POSITIVE PROCESS which provides direction, guidance & awareness in key areas of life.
The author, a person-centred counsellor, is of the opinion that as infants we arrive into the world as 'empty vessels', free from opinions, beliefs & positive or negative thought. For many of us our parents provide the main influences in our early years, we learn from them often adopting their viewpoints, understandings & beliefs - which very often have been passed down to them by their parents, and their parents before them. We continue to be influenced through the friends we make, and the people we encounter who share our lives. For many of us, we don't really start considering 'WHO 'we are, or what we think & feel until we are into our early teens - for some it can be much, much later as life intervenes! Around the age of 13 or 14, we may start thinking about the future, what kind of job or career we might like to pursue. For many this will be the first time the thought has crossed our minds, and with limited experience of WHO we are, what we enjoy or even what we are capable of & with little experience of 'decision making' (because someone else has made the decisions for us up until now), this can seem a daunting task. It is around this time that we are considering our options at school, presumably working towards subjects relevant to our career choices.
Ofcourse, there are those who have always known what they wanted to do from the moment they could speak - David Beckham reportedly wanted to be a footballer since the age of 4, and there are those who have had support & guidance from an early age, planning ahead, working hard for exams to earn a place in university. But it remains a fact that their are many young people who will leave school with no idea of what they want from life, or even what they are going to do next. Often they will take whatever work is available in order to bring home a wage. Before they know it they have commitments, rent to pay, a relationship perhaps, often infants of their own, which makes leaving this job & working towards something more, totally unfeasible - they may feel stuck. Personal development in adults has become increasingly popular over the past ten years or so, as a direct result of the situation discussed above; people wanting to change their lives for the better. Here at A Positive Start we are passionate about personal development, we understand how empowering it is however we don't think anyone should have to wait until they have lived half a lifetime or made a heap of mistakes before they have the opportunity to improve the quality of their lives. Prevention is ALWAYS better than the cure; we believe you should start as you mean to go on; by making A Positive Start! The areas covered in A Positive Start have been chosen because they are the areas in life where, if one thing goes wrong, it can have a knock-on affect creating problems in one or more of the other areas creating a situation known as 'being in a rut'.
