Relationship Health Self-Help

I Matter Informed Relationship Health Services offers an approach to developing relationship health that combines assessment, education and skills building through 1:1 and group and coaching support.  


I Matter Informed Relationship Health Self Help

An I Matter Informed Relationship Health Self Help can be accessed via experienced I Matter certified and licensed professionals in Educational or Clinical Settings

Relationship Health Self Help Training offers a cost-effective way of empowering those who are motivated to learn with the opportunity to progress their own learning within the context of supportive relationships in their own community.  The practitioner retains the responsibility for ensuring there has been discussion and evidence of readiness for the study involved and for informal check in as the study programme progresses.   The focus is on insight and skills building with a priority given to preparation for roles so as to prevent difficulties as well as early intervention when difficulties first become apparent.

The approach requires a strong readiness to learn and grow on the part of staff and parents involved both at home and in school and in the surrounding community.  We therefore focus on delivering this approach within a professionally well informed community hub

Relationship Health is an overlooked area of wellbeing practice that depends upon building specific insight, attitudes and skills.   Skills emergence depends crucially on the skills of the responsible adults.
We encourage all parties to invest in their own personal skills development before trying to teach others

I Matter Teaching Materials & Resources

The online resources, posters, videos, and how to guides provide a complete programme for practitioners in schools, primary care, prison and probation services and a wide range of other organisations who want to start embedding relationship health principles into their everyday practices.

Once staff are certified and well supported to deliver this programme in an organisation, then there are options to deliver a First Course programme which can be delivered through taught workshops without requiring online study of participants.

The I Matter First Course Training Manual

The I Matter First Course Training contains 12 key ideas for individuals and groups for proactive relationship health practice .

Each idea has its own evidence base, poster, trainer summary, and practical exercises.  Real-life examples are used and each concept is taught in a discuss-illustrate-discuss format. The demonstrations bring the ideas to life and help to join up the dots.

Alongside the video explanations, the trainer page provides a detailed explanation on how to teach and present the concept.

The Relationship Health Life Skills Reference Poster

The 12 concepts are summarised in a A4 poster - a pictorial reference as a reminder of the skills learned.


We advise that professionals should complete Level 1 online training as a minimum and should then register as a Trainee I Matter Practitioner.   If they want to work within or for an organisation, the organisation should ensure that they have a core of at least 3 senior leaders with Level 1 training as a minimum commitment.  This is to ensure that the organisation progresses its own internal development process.

The ideas are taught in a highly original and innovative way. Didactic presentation and demonstrations bring the concepts to life - group discussion and skills practice embed the skills for personal and professional use.
