Strengths and Wellbeing at The Doing Well Centre

Welcome to The Doing Well Centre.

We are a coaching and therapy centre focused on facilitating adults and children.

Many have come here for strengths coaching: they find out about their character and ability strengths, learn resilience and mindfulness-based practices in order to build concentration and self-confidence (for example, during public speaking), and reduce mental distractions. Quite a few pick up even more practical skills, such as time management, negotiations, and handling tough bosses. These are our coaching clients. Coaching has become an important part of many people’s professional and personal development in Singapore.

People also have visited us for stress, insomnia, anxiety, phobias and other reasons. In three to five sessions, normally, we train them to apply techniques to manage their emotional difficulties. These are our therapy clients.

This centre regularly organizes workshops on mindfulness and resilience. They are one of the best ways of finding out what we provide, with other like-minded people. So do look out for these events.

We are located at 1 Cheow Keng Road, about two blocks from i12 Katong and Joo Chiat Road.

Client testimonials are here.

People-Up

20131130-082951.jpg

I found this poster on Facebook so enlightening and true of work life today. How often has cost trumped capabilities to the detriment of the company’s future. If more companies can begin to take the People-Up approach, then they would get many more happier, motivated and loyal employees. The People-Up approach describes seeing employees as the first point of learning and development, identifying their strengths and growing those strengths. All with improved productivity and profitability as the destination goals to keep shareholders happy. What’s your experience been with People-Up in your company?

How to become more miserable than you already are

There is a delightfully sardonic article on misery and how to nurture it circulating on the internet. It touches on the secondary gain miserable people get – yes, there are benefits to acting dour – and why some of us exhibit defensive pessimism. There are also some useful observations about manipulative personalities. I happen to believe that they are more common than we think. So learn to spot them, if only to guard ourselves against being dragged down.

This looks like an article mocking the skeptics who have laughed off the not-quite-mainstream psychology of optimism that I see catching on in the western world, and in some parts of Asia. The funniest bits are the exercises that mimic those which positive psychologists prescribe to nurture optimistic thinking and wellbeing. Except these ones promote misery, of course.

Take the insights with a pinch of salt. No, actually, take them seriously, because there is extensive research showing that venting rage or exercising off frustration do nothing to improve our emotional wellbeing. If all this is just fuzzy logic to you, carry on beating yourself up. But excuse me while I head out for some sunshine and fresh air.

C the cookie?

C the cookie?

Cookie Monster always made cookies delectable. Just now when I took out this one digestive biscuit from the fridge, I flashed back to when I truly enjoyed eating cookies in front of the TV when Sesame Street played. That was … erm … never mind when. Who knows if those cookies were trans-fat traps but I sure as hell felt deeply satisfied. And so it was that I consumed today’s biscuit (the one in the picture, which no longer exists) with the same lust for cookies that the blue monster has. Life’s little pleasures, I suppose, matter.
