1. Fusion Group Sessions for Students

Who is it for?

Maximum of 25 pupils from years 8/9.

What is included?

The one hour Fusion Group Session teaches pupils how to manage difficult emotions such as anxiety, sadness and anger by educating them on the rational and emotional sides of the brain, as well as the mindfulness based mind management tool called the STOP system. Developed by Frances Masters, expert psychotherapist and member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, the Fusion programme represents a pioneering new solution focussed model of support.

How will they benefit?

Pupils learn how to recognise negative and habitual behavioural patterns which they have developed, and instead learn how to respond to life’s challenges mindfully rather than mindlessly. Following the session, most pupils report that they feel more confident in managing their mood and dealing with strong emotions. Pupils also receive a wallet sized booklet which allows them to put what they have learned into practice outside of the classroom.

2. Fusion Student or Teacher Breakthrough Day

The Fusion Breakthrough Day for students

Who is it for?

  • Maximum of 25 pupils in years 8-11.

What is included?

During the coaching based day, pupils develop their emotional resilience and learn how to respond to life’s events in a rational and mindful way by taking part in fun and interactive activities such as a wheel of life exercise. Developed by Frances Masters, expert psychotherapist and member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, the Fusion programme represents a pioneering new solution focussed model of support.

How will they benefit?

Pupils gain a range of psychological tools and techniques to help them develop the confidence to manage their long-term emotional wellbeing, build positive relationships and make life-enhancing choices. Working both independently and in pairs improves their listening, communication and empathic skills. By the end of the day, students have a ‘psychological snapshot’ of their current circumstances, a vision of their preferred future and a set of SMART goals to take them in that direction. 

The Fusion Breakthrough Day for School Staff

Who is it for?

  • Aimed at school staff.
  • Suitable for an INSET day.

What is included?

Why are some people more resilient than others? They just have greater ‘bounce back-ability,’ no matter what life throws at them. It is true that we cannot choose many of life’s events but we do have a choice about how we respond to them.

During this one day coaching based workshop, attendees acquire the psychological tools and skills to help them develop the confidence to manage their long-term emotional wellbeing, build positive relationships and make life-enhancing choices.

How will they benefit?

Participants learn how strong emotions prompt us to get our needs met, and how to manage their emotions to avoid mental hijacks which can cloud our judgement and lead to poor choices.

By the end of the day, attendees have a ‘psychological snapshot’ of their current circumstances, a vision of their preferred future and a set of SMART goals to take them in that direction. They also take away the knowledge, tools and skills to help them live their life with the confidence and resilience which underpin long-term happiness.

With school staff in mind, the course content has been designed to encourage essential self-care as well as a whole school approach to mental health and wellbeing.

3. Fusion Therapeutic Life Coaching: 6 x 1 hour Personal Sessions

Who is it for?

Pupils aged 11+.

What is included?

Many people think if you’ve got a problem you need a counsellor but if you’re a high achiever, you need a coach. Right?

Wrong?

In truth, we find ourselves at different positions on life’s ‘continuum of well-being’ at different times. Sometimes we are in the ‘OK’ zone and sometimes we slip into the ‘not OK’ zone. Relationship issues, personal problems, worries and anxieties all have an impact on energy, focus, behaviour… and exam results.

Fusion Therapeutic Life Coaches help pupils to resolve problems, meet personal and educational goals and quickly get back into the ‘OK’ zone. 6 x 1 hour individual weekly sessions focus on teaching students a range of skills and tools for enhanced emotional intelligence including the mindfulness-based STOP System and breathing for relaxation.

Using the coaching wheel of life, pupils take a psychological ‘snapshot’ of their life in the here and now, consider their preferred future and create SMART goals to help them begin to move forward.

How will they benefit?

It is easy to become overwhelmed by life’s events. Emotional hijacking can cloud judgement and lead to a negative thinking style which affects long term wellbeing.

Working with a Fusion Therapeutic Life Coach helps restore hope, develop good mind management skills and focus on a preferred future. Students learn how to raise mood, lower stress and use powerful brain filters to make good choices and get emotional needs met.

Depression, anxiety, anger, low self-esteem and behavioural problems respond well to Fusion Therapeutic Life Coaching.
