Workshop


Healthy Self, Healthy Relationship

Most of us have some insecurities due to our childhood experience and past negative life events. The greater the insecurities, the more likely unhappy you are with yourself, and this may affect your relationship with another person.
This could pose difficulty in building an intimate relationship with a partner, maintaining healthy boundaries with your parents, or even in sustaining secure and long-term friendships.

Unaddressed insecurities may result in a deep-seated need for assurance and affirmation from your partner, or vice versa, resulting in fear of a partner’s reaching out to you especially in situations where there are conflicts Cocooning yourself may have become a strategy to protect yourself from the perceived danger or whenever you are in intense distress.

Are there better ways to respond that you can build greater emotional connectivity instead of distance?

This workshop will give you a chance to learn about your attachment style and be more aware of how you react in relationships in general.
It also aims to help you gain greater insights into recognizing your own emotions and needs, your part in negative “dances”, and ultimately, learning to shape a positive loving bond with your partner.

Make this choice! Sign up and be empowered.

Talks


Disconnection to Connection

Feeling distant or disconnected after getting stuck in endless cycles of negativity and frustration over the same old arguments?

Many couples are caught up in destructive power struggles and perhaps the same fighting pattern from time to time.
What do they want to achieve from the arguments? Is it just to prove that one is right, and the other is wrong?
Or these couples could have disconnected emotionally, and do not feel emotionally safe with each other? The fight could just be a protest over emotional disconnection.

Underneath all the distress may be the boiling questions they have for their partners: Can I count on you, depend on you? Are you there for me? Will you respond to me when I need you? Do I matter to you? Am I valued and accepted by you? Do you need me, relay on me?

The anger, the criticism, the demands, are in fact cries for a safe connection.

Sign up to learn how to build the safe connection you desire.

Adversity Quotient – How to Increase your AQ and Build Stronger Resilience for Life Success

Have you ever wonder why some people do not seem to be very much affected by disasters, crises or challenges in their lives, while others fall into despair whenever adversity strikes?

Having IQ (Intelligence Quotient), EQ (Emotional Quotient)and SQ (Spiritual Quotient) may not be enough to prevent us from being crushed when adversity strikes. If so, what else is needed?  Yes, it is Adversity Quotient (AQ).

Adversities, failures, obstacles, crises, disasters, mistakes are all part and parcel of life; we will have to deal with them when they hit us.  AQ explains why some people, teams, organizations, and societies fail or quit, while others in similar situations persevere and succeed. It predicts how well one withstands adversity and his ability to triumph over it.

With the current pandemic that is sweeping across the globe, many lives have been disrupted and all of us have been forced to adapt in one way or another.  How we respond to this current situation can be a litmus test on our resilience in faces of challenges and our ability to thrive in a fast-changing world.  How have you been adapting to the pandemic?

In this talk, learn how to increase your AQ by becoming more aware of your current AQ level, apply useful tips on how you can develop a stronger resilience in dealing with all life circumstances and ultimately thrive in a fast-changing world.
