BULLYING RECOVERY PROGRAMME
One of the most common barriers to peak performance is Bullying. It’s effects are more devastating and far reaching than people realise. It not only impacts the targeted individual, but also their parents, bystanders, teachers and the bullies themselves. It doesn’t end when the bullying ends. It’s easy to find stories of how people are being affected by bullying 30, 40 or even 50 years after it has ended. Many don’t even realise that some of the problems that they face in life are caused because of the impact that bullying has had on them. But it’s time to regain control. Regain your power, ease your pain and start living your true potential.
IF YOU'VE BEEN BULLIED
Whether the bullying is ongoing or has happened in the past, there are ways to help you ease your distress. Working with you, we help to reduce the emotional trauma of bullying and maintain or return your confidence. We understand that you are not at fault and that bullying can tear you up inside, making you doubt yourself and feel like you are unable to cope. Well, you can. You are not helpless. The situation is not hopeless. You can move on forward and enjoy life after being bullied. Let us show you how. Gain relief and stop the suffering now.
IF YOU HAVE BULLIED OTHERS
Because we understand behaviour, we understand that those whom bully others are engaging in that behaviour in order to satisfy a need that they have and bullying others is a way of making themselves feel better. Maybe a specific person triggers a certain emotion within them which they are acting upon or bullying itself and the reaction it gets is what brings them the feelings they are looking to gain or reduce. We work with you to find out what the real issue is behind this behaviour and work to eliminate the need to bully and find a more productive alternative.
PARENTS OF A BULLIED CHILD
Parents play an important role in bullying situations but if not handled well, can make things worse instead of better for their child. Anger, frustration, hatred and fear are normal feelings that parents of a bullied child have, but these feelings tend to cloud our judgement and cause us to react in ways that can be damaging to the situation. You want to be level headed in order to get the best results and calm and reassuring to your child, who can pick up on your emotions and add to their guilt. The emotions that arise because you want to protect your child and ensure their safety are compounded by any history of bullying that you may have experienced in your past too, either directly or indirectly. Learn how to deal with what you are going through, so you are better placed to help your child with what they are going through.
TEACHERS DEALING WITH BULLYING
Like parents, past experiences of bullying, either directly or indirectly has an impact on how you deal with bullying situations. Maybe it’s something that you read or heard on the news, some past bullying situation you have deatl with or how you feel about certain students may unconsciously impact the decisions you make, which could have lasting effects on the situation. As a person in authority, those who are bullied tend to feel more helpless if they don’t feel you in control. Learn the mistakes some teachers have made when dealing with bullying and how to deal with your own past, beliefs and moods which influence the whole situation.
BYSTANDERS OF BULLYING
Being a bystander in bullying does not mean that you have escaped it’s effects. It can impact the way we behave and the choices we make as we try not to be in the position that those that are being bullied are in. When we see these things occurring in schools, colleges or places we attend frequently, we change our behaviour on a regular basis and soon these changes, fears and choices become habits that limit us. Again these limitations can affect us for many years after the bullying experience, even though we were not involved. It’s time to get rid of these and allow ourselves to become limitless – not simply a reduced amount of the person we could be.
