Mental Health Awareness


In a 2-hour session, EMPOWER provides a general perspective of mental health and well-being. This includes: understanding mental health and stigma, recognizing the signs of mental disorders, how and when to refer to a mental health professional, & ways you can develop and support your mental health.


Rather than giving advice, coaches gather information in the co-created process of change. A coach’s job is to ask questions from a curious stance that will provoke thought in a growth-oriented direction. Coaches see their clients as a whole and having the answers inside them.
Together, pathways to new ways of being in the world are developed.

Our coaches facilitate independence, hope, healthy relationships and life choices. Using a collaborative approach, our coaches will work with individuals, teams and leaders to design, plan and implement realistic plans’ working toward achieving desired goals and aspirations.

Areas of focus include:

  • Pyschosocial (Mental Health) Recovery
  • Resilience
  • Motivation

Drum Workshops provide people with the opportunity to experience positive social interactions and develop valuable life skills, by combining the power of drumming with the fun, safe, communal environment of a small group setting.

Through the use of drum exercises as metaphors for discussion points, participants will be encouraged to explore and express thoughts and emotions whilst also reaping the experiential benefits of performing rhythmic music.

These workshops are based on Simon Faulkner’s “Rhythm to Recovery” method of Drum Circle facilitation, which he has demonstrated, and taught, globally. These workshops have been proven to be effective in helping people with a variety of mental health or social issues, as well as general wellbeing.
