Our Journey to Work project is one part of a wider Fife Employment & Training Consortium (Fife-ETC) and is aimed at anyone with a diagnosed mental health condition, or continuing low mood. Our range of support is summarised below:
Living Life to the Full (LLTTF)
This 8 week course helps clients understand the role of negative thoughts, feelings and behaviours in their lives whilst providing clients tools to help begin to turn their lives around.
Set Targets and Reach Success (STARS)
A 6 week course that seeks to help clients clarify their goals and progress towards them. Covering topics such as comfort zones, courage and managing anxiety. This course draws extensively from solution-focused and existential coaching principles to help clients develop a sense of positive change and improved well-being.
This half day course introduces the reasons for learning the main techniques and attitudes of Mindfulness. Through a number of exercises clients will experience how to gently focus their attention on the present and how this can alter the relationship with thoughts, feeling and behaviour.
Mindfulness Eight week Course
In this eight week course clients will develop a deeper understanding and personal practice of Mindfulness. The course is organized so that clients can experience the benefits of deliberately and compassionately focusing awareness on the present moment, and how this enriches our involvement with each moment as it happens.
A drop in service for people wishing to brush up their CV, get some help searching for jobs or filling out applications. People can also receive some help with interview preparation and discuss how they may wish to disclose their mental health to possible employers. Held every Wednesday at FEAT's offices in Glenrothes, 1.30pm - 3.30pm.
Upon completion of one or more of our courses, depending upon our agreed action plan at the outset and progress reviews, further job searching activities will be provided by one of our partners in the Fife Employment & Training Consortium. The project is part funded by the European Social Investment Fund and the Robertson Trust.
