Training4Change will help you create positive interaction; achieving willingness in the individuals you manage, support and care for in our Communities, Schools, Institutions and Workplaces.

Identifying if our communication is negative or perceived to be negative can help us change our environments and relationships to feel more positive, creating willingness rather than obligation. Studies have shown that negative environments work but result in people feeling, feelings of obligation or in most cases a feeling of perceived threat, increasing adrenaline and loss of rational thought.

Training4Changes offers a range of courses that can be personalised and adapted to suit the needs of the company requesting it. Please feel free to visit ‘Our Services’ to find out more.

Founder – Paul Connelly

FullSizeRender-150x150“My interest in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy has lead me to renew and update my Life Coaching and Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy Skills. This has given me a more positive outlook on life that I can not wait to share with you all, as your mental health and well-being should be at the forefront of everything you do “


Paul has past experience working in residential care and with staff and young people in schools where students need more support and guidance managing challenging behaviour. In these environments willingness becomes paramount. If someone feels they are being oppressed or threatened, willingness will dissipate and obligation will become the motivational state. This can then lead to resentment and even a feeling of survival and fear. This, therefore, increases adrenaline. The impact of increasing and decreasing adrenaline with both positive and negative environments allows us to start to understand the brain’s response and the actions which follow.

Paul has 10 years’ experience in this sector, 6 of which were delivering training for one of the largest private care companies in the UK (Cambian Group). Paul has now set up his own company (Training4Change) and through this workstream provides ongoing training and support to Cambian Group. Paul has delivered training in residential environments inclusive of homes, schools and hospitals. He still continues to maintain his skills and further develop his experience through additional bank work in residential settings.

Paul has based some of his training around human interaction elements i.e. what you think and feel affects what you say and do, and vice versa. Paul, as part of his training, will give examples of this in more detail and give people a chance to look at the ‘moral compass’ and see what thoughts and feelings accompany directional change.
