What is PSN CCi?
The PSN CCi network is a community of people who have been trained to use peer support for themselves and each other, to make a difference in their own lives and in the world around them. Once you have completed the basic skills training you can join a world-wide network at no cost. PSN CCi is free for life.
What does it offer?
Emotional Support, Inspiration, Personal Development, and tools for Action. That means: - The opportunity to take charge of our own lives - Ways to recognise our core needs and to live more authentically - Building emotional literacy with information from neuroscience - Self-knowledge and inner peace: expands a practice of mindfulness - The culture and the practical tools to bring about change - Valuable skills for promoting empowerment in others - Free lifetime membership of local, national and international peer networks.
PSN CCi gives you personal and emotional support by providing a safe and confidential place to talk about your feelings. It begins with a free Taster (via *E:Gym, a phone call or an event), followed by a 2-part training in which you learn how to use a peer network, a framework for exchanging time with others. And you will find out a lot about yourself and how your emotional life works. You learn through experience by trying things out. The teaching is informal with little need for theory or notes. PSN CCi is based on well-established psychological and psychodynamic principles.
How do I join the PSN CCI network? The training is in 2 parts over a total of 6 days. Completing the first 3 days enables you to join the PSN CCi network in your local area. People get together in person or on the phone or skype. Successful completion of the second part gives full membership of Co-Counselling International (CCI) which is a worldwide community of like-minded people. Come and meet us at a FREE Taster event or the monthly free Meetup E.Gym – first Wednesday of the month at Quay Place, Ipswich at 6.30pm. https://www.meetup.com/Emotional-Keep-Fit-Network. Training courses run twice a year. Alternatively give us a ring.
Why do I need to do a course to join PSN CCI? PSN CCi is a peer network run by all its members. There are no appointed leaders and each person takes responsibility for themselves and support of their peers. The course teaches a framework to make this work well and safely. The agreed culture, structure, and ways of working together create a high degree of safety and confidentiality. The training teaches all the skills and tools to promote effective change and support for each other, with plenty of time to practise them and build confidence. You will learn specific ways to facilitate your own and the other person’s work.
What are the costs? The E.Gym or PSNCCI Taster is free. Once you have completed the course there is no charge to join the network or do sessions with people – it is a system that is Free for Life. The course is professionally delivered by highly experienced trainers so naturally it has a cost, which is currently £200 per person for each part (£350 for part 1 and 2 if booked together). There is an earlybird rate for each part (£170 each part) - and people who pay in full for both parts by first early bird date get a reduction to £320
