Get ready to challenge negativity and low self-esteem at your school

The UK Government is now advising schools to concentrate more on the wellbeing and emotional resilience of students with mental health issues. In plain language it simply means working on changing negative attitudes and perceptions, an area that has not received huge attention in recent years, but one that will become increasingly important according to author and positive thinking guru Michael Younge.

In response to this initiative, Powerful Positive Thinking has developed a series of unique PowerPoint courses and modules designed to motivate and inspire young people in Primary and  better, particularly those of students, pupils and young people who 

Described by teaching professionals and trained counsellors during pilot studies as “electric” – with students engaging and supporting each other in ways that have “never been seen before”, these courses are now available to schools and academies worldwide for just one low annual subscription of £95 plus VAT, a cost kept as low as 

All of our courses have been developed with the help and guidance of teaching professionals and trained counsellors to motivate, inspire and challenge the way that students, children and young people think and  your school or academy by visiting:

There is of course no doubt that schools are aware of what some have described as a mental health epidemic with many reporting a rise in stress, anxiety and panic attacks in their students as well as  mainly to introduce policies and strategies to cope with such issues rather than to directly address the causes.

According to the UK Government study entitled “Mental health and wellbeing provision in schools,” published in 2018 it was stated:

“To further enable schools’ awareness of mental health, and to fully underpin how schools’ policies can promote the mental health and wellbeing of pupils, it might be helpful if there was a shift in the discourse of guidance and training from behaviour and behaviour management, to a focus on mental health, wellbeing and building emotional resilience”.

In real terms this means helping students to change the way they think and to expect positive outcomes from their actions. A study by Kings College, London, in 2016 which studied 102 subjects with anxiety disorder established that those who visualised positive outcomes and images reported greater happiness, restfulness and decreased anxiety, supporting a rising body of evidence in the UK and America that positive thinking works.

Since that report there has been further evidence supported by many other academic studies that positive thinking and in particular a positive mental attitude can be life changing and it’s encouraging to see that schools and academies are now beginning to take this more seriously.

There are of course many excellent charitable organisations that visit schools and talk generally about positivity but there has until now been little available in terms of teaching the subject in a way that will realistically alter negative perceptions...

... until now.

This is why Powerful Positive Thinking has been working closely with schools to produce a course that can be presented by teachers or counsellors in an interactive way that allows students to identify their own negative issues and work on personal strategies to overcome them.

Pilot studies exceeded all expectations with counsellors reporting major changes in attitudes, body language and negative perceptions. Even more encouraging, it would seem that the courses have provided the catalyst for students to make essential life changes.
