Balance your digital life
Take control of your media habits and increase your wellbeing
We have all experienced both the negatives & positives of the Internet and digital world. Many of my clients say they turn off their Instagram, Twitter & Facebook, or block certain people when they are feeling vulnerable. I myself have to limit the amount of news I see at times. When I start a new project I have to limit the amount I read. Otherwise, I get dragged into a rabbit-hole, where one article leads to another & then I don´t get anything done.
You might have seen the Netflix film The Social Dilemma” or read Cal Newport´s Digital Minimalism. Both shed light on the negative aspects of online life, especially social media. Still, we do have to live & work online and in the digital world, especially now during the pandemic. How can we do that in a way that isn´t making us feel worse about ourselves & the world around us, while taking advantage of the entertainment, education and exploration we can do online? This course helps you do just that.

Should you not want to pay all in one go or to just have a taster, you could pay £ 40,-for the first 2 sessions & the rest later if you choose to continue.
Interactive, but not uncomfortable
The sessions are designed to be interactive and you will receive some questions & discussion points in advance. However, your level of participation is purely up to you & your comfort level. Other questions will be asked during the sessions, but if you let me know you prefer not to answer questions like that, I will not ask you directly. There will also be some questions where I will ask everybody in the group to give their answer either anonymously (via a web-site / app) or type it in the chat.
What is the course based on and what experience do you have?
The program is based upon a number of resources & techniques, both experimental and scientific. They are all created to give people a higher level of mental wellbeing and to provide support in changing their behaviour. Some of these I learnt during my nursing training in Norway, public health training at Maastricht University & King´s College London and finally, some from coaching training & group coaching training at Animas. They are all techniques I have used in the past when giving group presentations, supporting people in changing their behavioural and making changes around mental health wellbeing, sexual health & the use of alcohol and/or drugs.
