Restoring and Raising Confidence

Raising and Restoring Confidence

Amongst the consequences of 2020, is that familiar infrastructures  have either disappeared altogether or been distorted.  One of the outcomes is that areas of certainty  and where we’ve been  unconsciously competent, might have altered.

From being sure - footed, there is now a measure of apprehension. Recognising the psychological effects is the first step in increasing and improving levels of confidence.  This course explores  some strategies which can  support us in the confidence raising programme and help us back onto solid ground.
