Today we're talking with Dr Rebekah Doley BA(Hons) GradDipPsyPrac MSc MJuris MPsy/PhD (Clin) about her Invest in your #FutureMe today! workshops and seminars on matters of life and love, and adjusting successfully to all that lies between. Her focus is on optimising the relationship between your experience and your mind in order to benefit your adjustment to life challenges to achieve your best functioning, while avoiding unnecessary disruption and emotional cost.
Why are you passionate about your class and where did your passion stem from?
My passion is about working with individuals to achieve lasting life contentment and fulfillment, regardless of what is going on around them at the time. The mind is shaped by experience and my strategies are designed to be immediately applicable, realistic and achievable in order to give people control over their mind so they can create the life they seek. My approach is informed by research but not constrained by it; integrating wisdom, deep knowledge work and lived experience. As a consultant clinical psychologist, my extensive professional background incorporates forensic, clinical, military and organisational psychology. With more than 13 years formal higher degree education and over 3 decades of professional experience, my career has spanned university lecturing, international arson behaviour analysis, relationship and clinical issues and sex therapy.
Why should people attend your Life and Love Workshops?
If you are looking to make meaningful change in your mindset and to support growth to improve your experience of life, then you want to invest your time and energy into something that is based on research. But, because change is scary and hard, you also want to connect with someone who has the deep knowledge and lived experience to make the science work in your real-life context, beyond the training room. Participants at my talks appreciate the down to earth, no-frills, compassionate approach I bring to delivering practical, helpful tools that work to deliver impactful and transformational change.
What makes your workshops extra special?
I offer informed, no-frills authenticity- with over 30 years of experience in behaviour and mind change, I use a range of life experiences and scientific methods to make my seminars and workshops meaningful, effective and valuable, with a focus on providing practical skills that can be integrated into real life.
What will attendees take away from your workshops?
Seminars and workshops are interactive and fun, filled with the warmth of people coming together to expand knowledge and skills in a common area. You can expect to laugh, learn, and connect without the hype and fanfare that can often accompany life skills development. You will leave the seminar with clarity around the theory and with practical strategies tailored specifically to your individual circumstances which you can start implementing immediately. Your investment in your #FutureMe starts with #PresentMe!
What are you looking forward to the most when it comes to running your classes?
I have done a lot of training both domestically and internationally, across a wide range of corporate and public contexts. What keeps me motivated and energised is the interaction with people across the life span who arrive with a range of personal and professional experiences, and the capacity of my work to connect us all at a deeply human level. Connection, research shows, is one of the core attributes to leading a contented and fulfilling life. My work offers opportunities for connection, while learning about knowledge and skills to support impactful change in your life, both at home and at work.
