Alison Knowles an emotional therapist and creator of The Ollie Course tells us why you should join her on this course.
Key takeaways for your school
- Boost resilience and wellbeing
- Take control of emotions
- Communicate successfully across the whole school
- Stop re-occurring behavioural issues
- Understand the relationship between emotions and behaviours
This session explains the concept behind The Ollie Model in just over an hour. You’ll learn how our environment and upbringing can create our belief systems and how they create behaviours. Uncover a simple but powerful understanding of how emotions and behaviour are linked and understand the driving factors in play.
You’ll be given a language and a set of tools for expressing emotions, fears and anxiety with youngsters. Giving everyone a common language makes it much easier to communicate successfully across the whole school.
What is Anxiety? Fears, phobias, and anxiety attachment issues are all emotionally driven behaviour. This powerful model gets to the root emotion that is driving the behaviour. Tackling the root emotion stops re-occurring behavioural issues.
Find out how our magic library files all our learning, how our emotions are our special team to help us navigate through life. Why emotions get a bit ‘big’ sometimes and what to do about it. Discover The Magic Circle technique – brilliant for youngsters, but you can also use it for yourself, especially when you need that extra bit of confidence.Add to basket
“This is such a simple technique, but a very powerful one that empowers the child to be able to understand and deal with their emotions. It works on their strengths. It builds resilience. It really helps both children and adults in a short space of time.”
Emotional Wellbeing Coach
“As a family and young persons therapist I am always looking for simple ways to help young people overcome difficulties. I would highly recommend it to parents, teachers and counsellors, in fact anyone who knows a child! It is a creative and imaginative way to show young people (and adults too!) that we are in the driving seat of our emotions and we can change the way we feel in a heartbeat. “
Ollie and his Super Powers – What is the Ollie Model?
It’s a simplistic and empowering therapeutic model to help young and old take control of their emotions rather than be controlled by them – turning how we deal with emotional wellbeing on its head!
The Ollie Model focuses on the emotions that create the behaviour rather than trying to change a behaviour without removing the root driver. This means that a child or adult can understand the driver and then find empowering better choices to deal with the need of the root emotion. As a result, we don’t have re-occurring behavioural issues as is often the result of a lot of other therapeutic interventions. The model also aims to empower parents/carers/teachers with the tools they need for themselves and their children so that neither are dependent on a therapist to fix them.
Who created the Ollie Model?
Alison was inspired to create ‘Ollie and his superpowers’, having found a way to be more creative in therapy with children and has written three books using the Ollie model. She continues to train ‘Ollie’ coaches who work therapeutically in schools, with parents and professionals to use this dynamic approach to boost children’s resilience and wellbeing. Her nomination form refers to Alison as “an inspiration to so many children and adults. She is an amazing lady, with a passion for improving children’s lives. The ‘Ollie’ model is a unique, dynamic and powerful approach that children, their parents and the professionals around them are falling in love with and achieving dramatic change very quickly.”
