Programme Structure & Pace

The programme structure is segmented into three sections and smaller units. There are different learning technologies for different learners, including audio, video, illustrations, text, discussion forums, and worksheets. The delivery is in short, bite size portions so it is easily digestible. You work through each section and the smaller units before moving onto the next section. You divide your time in a way that suits your schedule. The programme is geared towards a fulfilling learner experience and a deep transformation. It works best if you engage, ask questions and participate in the online discussions, which are there for your support. Online study is supported through a weekend immersion every month, sessions with Kate and group coaching sessions

Section 1

Embracing Inner Work

This is the first section of the programme focuses on you building your knowledge and shifting your perceptions. You are guided to journey into your own innerwork by exploring experientially the theory and concepts.

This helps you directly experience shifts and new awareness about yourself and this work.

There is reflecting, journaling, live group coaching sessions, sisterhood community connections and support.

This can take place over 4 months. Once you have completed this section, you can move on to section 2.

The following approaches are included in this section:

  • Theory learning: Teach theoretical and conceptual topics to provide a context for the entire program and help students to alter their perceptions.

  • Experiencing: Provide personal exercises for students to work with the theories and do their own innerwork.

  • Reflecting: Using both their past and current experiences, provide deep reflective questions for students to ponder.

  • Discovering: Provide richer lessons and guided exercises for students to advance their understanding of theories shared earlier.

  • Shifting: Have students determine their profound insights and share in the discussion forum how that has impacted their life, views and work.

  • Supporting: Provide live calls and written support in the discussion forum. Can commence small group work for support purposes.

Section 2

Using Counselling Tools

The next section introduces deeper tools and methods that you can use to begin to work with others. You receive a buffet of tools which you can experiment. You are also guided to work in groups.

Here you will be sharing your experience and exploration with the tools in the online community as well as your own group, as well as critiquing and customising the tools for their own practice, bringing your own flavour to them.

Live group coaching sessions, weekly email prompts showcasing tools, online community work and sharing of creative work.

This can take place over 5 months. Once you have completed this section, you can move on to the final section 3.

The following approaches are included in this section:

  • Exploring: Provide access to all tools (or drip out some at one time) with instructions on using and sharing of other resources.

  • Experimenting: Provide guided exercises on how students should engage with the tools and expectations or goals to achieve. Start the small groups to share the work.

  • Reflecting: Guide students in reflecting on their experiences with the counseling tools. Small groups can share their reflections to learn from one another.

  • Critiquing/evaluating: Later in this section, after experimenting with the tools, have students critically assess and evaluate the tools in an online discussion.

  • Personalising: Have students amend any tool to suit their practice.

  • Sharing: Ask students to share 1 or 2 amended tools along with a description and reasons for their changes.

Section 3

Working with Clients

This section is delivered as a guided self-monitoring practicum with certain requirements, goals, teachings, instructions, resources, and reporting back. You will be exploring specific counselling methods with clients, in a gradual way.

You can track your own progress against a series of checklists and submit them via a survey online. Once the practicum criteria and hours are completed, a certificate can be provided.

This can take place over 5 months.

The following approaches are included in this section:

  • Practicing: Have students follow a self-monitoring practicum with set requirements to work with clients using new approaches, methods and tools.

  • Applying: After some practicing, students can work on applying new methods to their practice.

  • Working: For a period of time, new methods are used in their regular practice with notetaking of reflections, critiques and action plans.

  • Revising: Ask students to share their client work experience and how they have altered their practice using and possibly altering new methods and tools.

  • Systemizing: Help students to seamlessly use new methods and tools.

  • Establishing: At this point, students have altered and established a new way of counseling in their regular practice.

The Programme’s Development Path – What You Can Expect

 

STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT

DEVELOPMENTAL PATH

 1

Awareness

This is the early stage where you are not fully committed to make significant changes.

Training/coaching focus: To connect with participants and bring awareness through high-level discussions and sharing.

 2

Receiving

The stage where you may be aware of or attending to something in your environment. You intend to change, are aware of the pros of changing, but also can identify with the cons.

Training/coaching focus: To build trust and guidance through practices/exercises, sharing and discussions.

 3

Responding

The stage where you are showing some new behaviours as a result of experience, but are still contemplating whether to make significant changes.

Training/coaching focus: To guide your reflections, answer your tough questions and support any fears.

 4

Valuing

The stage where you have a plan, intend to take action in the immediate future, and are showing some definite involvement or commitment.

Training/coaching focus: To encourage your progress and journey together.

 5

Organising

The stage in which you are integrating a new value into your general set of values, and giving it some ranking among other priorities. You are taking action and making behavioural changes, and determining how to prevent relapse.

Training/coaching focus: To support your shifts and provide tools to sustain changes.

 6

Internalising

The stage where you are acting consistently with your new values, and attempting to be 100% effective in sustaining your new behaviour. This stage is the most difficult to incorporate and maintain.

Training/coaching focus: To celebrate your recalibration.

How You Spiral From Innerwork to Client Work

Spiritual Counselling Spiral Of Learning

The Core Principles of Our Peer Sisters Support Network

Mutual – As we support each other on our journey during the programme, it is critical that we aim to contribute as much or more than the group contributes us to. Whatever your expectations from the group, give in the same way and you are more likely to receive it in return.

Reciprocal – Peer sister relationships involve a sharing and exploration of different worldviews and the generation of solutions together. Respecting that we are all on various legs of our journeys, while supporting and learning from each other.

Non-directive – The peer sister support forum is not for telling others what they should or should not do. We are here to answer questions, share our experiences and be supportive of other’s decisions in their journey.

Encouragement focused – Peer sister support engages the group with inspiring empowerment and helps generate personal belief, energy and commitment with the person you are supporting. This could mean supporting people to work through their personal challenges by focusing on a strengths-based, inclusive, progressive and safe environment. These principles can be used to guide training and supervision and to maintain the integrity of the peer sister role.

Strengths based – Through knowledge and experience sharing, peer sister support explores what a person has gained from their experience, seeks out their qualities and assets, identifies hidden achievements and celebrates what may seem like the smallest steps forward. This involves a relationship where the person providing or receiving support is not afraid of communicating their success or struggles and for the group to be able to identify, through their experiences, in what ways everyone is succeeding and can grow on their journey.

Inclusive – Being a ‘peer sister’ is also about understanding the meaning of the group’s collective experiences and involvement in the process of the individual and group journey. Creating space and avenues that engage the group as a whole and allow feedback and involvement from everyone is key. There are group members that will share more than others and some less. We need to gauge when to give others the chance to share or respond and that may mean actively, and politely, engaging someone in conversation versus waiting for them to speak up.

Progressive – Peer sister support is not a static friendship, but progressive mutual support in a shared journey of discovery. The peer sister is not just a ‘buddy’, but a travelling companion, with both travellers learning new skills, developing new resources and reframing challenges as opportunities for finding new solutions.

Safe – Supportive peer sister relationships involve the negotiation of what emotional safety means to both parties. This can be achieved by discovering what makes each other feel unsafe, sharing rules of confidentiality, demonstrating compassion, authenticity and non-judgment.
