In case of any change in schedule, the trainee may contact their coach and reframe the timeline. There are no tests or exams; there are practical checkouts. The trainee will attend class with their learner and be involved in providing CLM curriculum under coaching supervision from a CLM coach. Trainee will also receive lecture based training, group discussions and role playing with other trainees.

We need to see that you can “DO IT”

Acceptance & Coping

DURATION: Set of 5 Sessions: 90 mins each

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) gets it name from one of its core messages: accept what is out of your personal control, and commit to action that improves and enriches your life. The aim of ACT is to maximize the human potential for a rich, full and meaningful life. ACT (which is pronounced as the word ‘act’, not as the initials) does this by:

  1. a) teaching you mindfulness skills to deal with your painful thoughts and feelings effectively – in such a way that they have much less impact and influence over you.
  1. b) helping you to clarify what is truly important and meaningful to you – i.e your values – then use that knowledge to guide, inspire and motivate you to change your life for the better.

DURATION: Set of 5 Sessions: 90 mins each
