Equilibrium Project Architect of Transformation and Life Success by Design Programmes

Equilibrium Project Architect of Transformation and Life Success by Design therapeutic programmes are a proven and highly effective method for the achievement of a new pathway towards a positive, healthy and successful future.

This psychological and psychosocial approach is effective due to the combination of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), along with mindfulness and cutting edge accelerated learning that is woven together with goal-setting principles into one holistic system for success.

Our Professionals understand  that the first and foremost goal of treatment is to engage clients in a life-changing process that leads to lasting recovery and greater life satisfaction. In order to maintain a healthy, balanced lifestyle it is important to provide highly individualised relapse prevention treatment programmes that will be developed and honed to each client’s requirements and to have a plan in place to minimise the chance of relapse.

Equilibrium Project’s Life Success by Design Programme is an intensive programme allowing individuals to;

  • Understand  the Cycle of Change process.
  • Identify ‘High Risk’ situations.
  • Become more self-aware of ‘comfort zones’, ‘danger zones’ – where learning and changes start to take place.
  • Identify and release locked-in patterns of trauma.
  • Develop the skills required to cope with difficult and demanding situations which place the individual at risk of a return to previous behaviour which they have chosen to change.
  • Facilitate change and encourage individuals to respond to change.
  • Use guided imagery and visualisation for therapeutic change.
  • Identify and work through limiting beliefs and paradigms.
  • Cope with stress and cravings using relaxation techniques, distraction and mindfulness.
  • Find real purpose, create a vision and set goals.

HEARTFELT TESTIMONIALS

It’s not everyday you see kindness in words but we wanted to share these:

Every aspect of the treatment was perfect from start to finish. I was immediately introduced to the wonderful team, and after being introduced to the wonderful team I was given time to settle in before we commenced the life changing course.

In terms of the treatment, the course was very well designed, with the bulk of the material consisting of the Life Success by Design Course, which helped me immensely in finding my light at the end of the tunnel and also, more importantly, the steps I’d need to take to achieve my goals and desires. Bearing in mind I arrived believing there was nothing that could bring me joy in life, this was a TREMENDOUS step forward, one I never thought possible. The treatment was also perfectly tailored to my needs, with fantastic support provided for all of my problems. Addiction support was on hand to help me with my horrendous drugs problem, medication was provided to aid with my sleep anxiety, and any other issue was that I identified with my mental health throughout the course was swiftly explained and handled by the team. All of this was also interspersed with mediations, and Jayne’s ‘Rewind’ was quite incredibly revealing and quite frankly life changing. They have a veritable wealth of knowledge, and no matter how much of a tangent my mind would take me on they would immediately appear with a new diagram or booklet to help me understand what I was going through. I honestly couldn’t recommend the treatment enough, and that’s without mentioning the occasional day trips we’d make for seaside walks, what better place to start your recovery!

In terms of the team who run the course, I’ve never met more welcoming, more friendly or more experienced therapists. Having gone through an arsenal of previous therapists and psychologists, none of which had managed to help me in the ways that I needed, I was amazed with their knowledge, personality and contagious enthusiasm, and it felt like at every stage I was divulging my problems on eager ears who really wanted to help me as much as possible. Vicki assured me she only works with exceptional people, and let me now assure you in turn she is absolutely right. From Charlie the spiritual ‘Life Guru’ (for want of a better word), to Jayne and Corina with their wisdom and toolbox of solution, to Vicki the one who helped me hang in there when I was at my worst, I couldn’t have hoped for a better team to take me through the transformative week. All of these qualities are shared my each member of the team, they really are all as fantastic as each other!

I arrived with very little hope, with this course being the one last roll of the dice I was willing to take before I ‘clocked out’. After the week was up, I wouldn’t have been able to recognise myself from the beginning of the course. This course gave me something I never thought possible – a sense of direction and purpose as well as the tools to deal with the all-consuming monster inside my mind. This course will equip you with tools not for a few weeks, but for a lifetime. It provides the perfect foundation upon which to rediscover yourself and what you love, even for the greatest of sceptics like me. I could never recommend it enough, and I’ve found myself recommending it to a range of people, from those with serious issues to smaller issues and anyone in between. This course will start you on the path to inner peace and tranquillity, thank you ever so much! They’re a bunch of miracle workers, and I mean it.

 

Testimonial 2
I was tired. So so tired.
Tired of the lying, tired of the hiding, of the hangovers, of the anxiety, of THE FEAR.
I was battle weary.

I knew I needed help but I’d been here before and sought my ‘help’ through the NHS and AA. It was a tough journey and one I didn’t really want to do again. It was cold and it was hostile and obviously it didn’t work in the long run. There must be another way… and then there was.

My partner found out about Equilibrium, a home detox service.

I was apprehensive at first, who are these people? What will they do? Will it work? Again, THE FEAR. But I knew I wanted out of the endless misery that my drinking had become and I knew Equilibrium had helped others so I was prepared to give it a shot.

The ‘Dream Team’ (as I now refer to them) arrived one cold, dark December evening. We talked through the process and about me and about what we wanted to achieve. We agreed we would start the next day. They were kind, understanding and supportive.

The detox consists of a combination of medication and education. Medication for the actual physical symptoms of detox and education to help you on your path to sobriety.

Over the next few days we worked together. Using various methods they helped me understand my addiction and taught me vital techniques to help me with my ongoing journey.

I felt loved and supported and I knew they honestly cared about me and my recovery. These guys had my back.

Being at home during this process helped me enormously, not only because I felt comfortable in my own environment but also because this was the environment that I would be in through the next stages and ongoing sobriety, I needed to change my habits and triggers at home and for it to be a safe sober place.

Many months on I am happy, healthy and most importantly sober. Not gonna lie there are still difficult moments but I use what I have learnt with Equilibrium and the moments pass as quickly as they arrive.

Equilibrium taught me there is a way, a future, a hope, they taught me to love myself and furnished me with the tools to achieve. We are in contact a lot and I know they are there for me if I ever need them.

Equilibrium gave me a gift, they gave me my life back and I’m totally over the moon about it!
