Invest in Skills for More Relationship Health at Home and at Work
Join The I Matter Learning Journey 

To help you prepare yourself, to prevent problems, to strengthen or restore health to relationships

Our mission is to offer a place that helps you to get the education and guidance about relationship health that you always wanted. We equip you with foundations to support your wish for happier and healthier relationships with young people and adults, including your children, partner or wider family or friends, and in your work settings with young people and other adults. You probably always wanted this education but perhaps didn't know it existed.

Most parents and carers, and professionals who work with children and adults are left trying to figure things out about relationship health for themselves.   That's a huge waste of effort and energy - the lack of good preparation and support also generates a lot of problems...

Now:  The good news is that we can help you move forward with strong foundations for understanding what is happening in difficult situations, and what key details you need in place for relationships to FEEL GOOD - whether with typical children or adults - or those with additional needs.

It's time we took a new approach to addressing anxiety and difficult behaviour  - notably about what is happening in the relationships.

So, If you want to feel prepared for more relationship health or you are currently feeling anxious, overwhelmed, isolated in your role or situation

If you want to feel more confident about your decisions

If you want to feel calm and collected

And connected to a community that gets that relationships can be challenging... both those with others, and those with ourselves...

Then the I Matter Learning Journey and the I Matter Community was created for you.

We offer training in the I Matter Framework (which equips you with foundations for relationship health practice) along with tools, tips, support and resources that anyone committed to a relationship health approach to well-being really needs.

We don't believe it serves anyone to keep people waiting when they  actively want to learn more 

We know that waiting for appointments with experts that are hard pressed can be very difficult and is ultimately not an ideal way forward.

More particularly we believe that good preparation and well informed coaching makes a difference to a huge number of important issues and challenging situations.

Most of the ideas are familiar - The problem is we often do not yet prepare and act effectively - the challenge is taking action - and in addressing the details !

A key goal of this programme is to give you a practical map that helps reduce confusion and increase your clarity so that you can take positive actions in your roles at home and work and thus benefit from your investment for years to come

Who is I Matter Training for and who is it not for?
The I Matter Fundamentals and Level 1-2 course is for anyone who recognises that they have a position of responsibility in relation to themselves and others, for which they want to feel well equipped and better skilled.  You will need to be ready to study and reflect - and ready to grow yourself. 

If you are very overwhelmed then the ideas are relevant but we advise that we provide educational services only.  If you are dealing with escalated high risk behaviour such as aggression, self-harm or substance misuse then you should look urgently for local or crisis support.    If you need crisis support a good place to start is: https://www.mind.org.uk/information-support/guides-to-support-and-services/crisis-services/helplines-listening-services/

Participation in this training is for education only and does not provide a provider-patient relationship
