Emotional Resilience and Emotional Intelligence Education for Students.  


Resilience is the ‘rubber ball’ factor: the ability to bounce back in the event of adversity and the ability to know yourself well enough to avoid the triggers that can cause mental and emotional issues. Put simply, resilience is the ability to cope with and rise to the inevitable challenges, problems and set-backs you meet in your student life and career.

What students will learn:

• How to avoid burn-out 

• Dealing with difficult people 

• Staying in balance – emotionally, mentally and physically 

• Assertiveness and how to give a positive ‘no’

• Knowing what your triggers are and how to avoid them

Our teaching is full of real life stories, humour and real life psychology tools you can apply to the whole of your life, including current stress points for students.

Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is how we understand read people by more than just the words that they say. You’ll learn how to paying attention to body language and learn how to address people in a personal way that builds trust quickly.

However, it’s also about learning how to manage yourself. Your emotional triggers and how to move through your emotions so you can avoid hanging onto the extra stress your thoughts can create.

What students will learn:

  • The three levels of active listening

  • Know your emotional triggers, how to drop negative emotions faster and how to take feedback

  • How to read people, know what they want and how to build trust

  • Social intelligence how to read a room of people in a meeting, a job interview or when addressing an audience

  • Good self- management and self-awareness

Media, Theatre, Radio Film and Television: 

More than any other industry, the entertainment industry and be the most fun and yet  there’s an emotional aspect to it. Your emotional and mental wellbeing isn’t often considered. After all ‘The show must go on’. You’re responsible for your own wellbeing. From crazy hours in production week, dealing with difficult people, tough show content, insecure earnings, production fails, and having to say goodbye at the end of a run, you have to be emotionally resilient to have a healthy career. This starts with you having good habits as a student. 

Reviews from students:

What ‘light bulb’ moments did you get from the coaching?

  • Creative dealing with people. I’ve tried yet why this may have been difficult and not working in the past.

  • It is now very clear to me how your individual ‘energy’ can affect a situation and how to deal with it.

  • How to talk to others and not get pi**ed off so much.

  • Looking through the past at what people have said and seeing the deeper meaning.

  • Alternative ways of making your point.

  • The part about self-faith I found really interesting and not to stick at a job for the sake of it.

  • That I can use the ‘stuck record method’. Things said in theatre aren’t personal

  • Interesting how people interact with you because of themselves and what they’re going through rather than what they’re going through rather than what you’re doing and how good or bad you are at your job.

  • Power dynamics between strands specially director/actor dynamic.

  • Looking assertive can just change how people see you.

  • People are generally a**eholes because they are insecure.

  • Understanding myself and how phrasing some stuff differently can help!

  • I feel I can relate to pretty much everything you have said. Particularly regarding issues faced as a woman which is not often brought up but it SHOULD.

  • Talking about why people may act a certain way - because they are insecure etc. I realised that I do this things sometimes for the same reason.

  • How word choices like ‘but’ and ‘sorry’ can change what people take from what you say.

  • Themes of people - have come across many people with the theme of entitlement.

  • Value yourself don’t be a doormat.

  • When you spoke about self love and how your view of yourself effects how others view you.
