LIFEWISE AT TOKKO YOUTH SPACE
To test the Lifewise model I ran certain parts of Lifewise through a number of other projects at Tokko with great feedback. I ran the project via a range of young people's needs which achieved great results and spurred on the the project as it is today.
I engaged many conversations with youth organisations both locally and nationally who have all credited Lifewise. Spurred on by positive feedback and abigger picture I created Lifewise as a stand alone project under the Tokko Youth Space offer.
Lifewise™ at Tokko Youth Space is made up of 3 different projects which can overlap as seen fit to the individual/audience. The sessions are aimed to build on our client’s mental wealth and overall wellbeing - Assisting the Changing Human.
We aim to lead the client to better personal foundations, towards reaching their personal goal(s) – with clarity and awareness.
Lifewise 3 strands at Tokko Youth Space;
Lifewise Fundamentals project – underpinning awareness, mindfulness and well-being, this innovative programme touches upon the little discussed yet highly positive life areas of consciousness, energy (flow and interaction), our forgotten human abilities; how to utilise them and make a real difference in life. Thus enabling the audience to re-discover and build on valuable tools in an otherwise underused ‘tool kit’. Some tools we utilise are meditation, breathing exercises, awareness training, Lifewise Tool Box and more. Lifewise Fundamentals is typically a 5 session, 2hrs per session project but can be modified to suit the audience.
Lifewise Mentoring – friendly and personable 1:1 sessions with a professional and traditional mentoring approach yet running through the content of Lifewise Fundamentals but on a 1:1 basis. Here we have the ability to check in regularly and personalise the programme to suit the individual.
Lifewise Outdoors – teaches how to optimise the benefits of being outdoors, experiencing nature; skills we seem to lack more as we depend more on technology. The beginning sessions are classroom based learning the importance of connection and witnessing nature. After which we spend quality reflective and inspirational time amongst nature, connecting with our natural environment - learning how to be to get the most from our natural environment. An endlessly beneficial experience which we run as a stand-alone project or joined with the Fundamentals and or Mentoring projects.
How can Lifewise benefit you?
Do you or someone you know suffer with what could have been preventable mental health concerns?
If yes then our personable approach meets the person on their level and supports working through feelings.
Through our friendly and progressive approach we create a space for the person to grow organically; less held back by outside influences - giving you back to you.

Lifewise has since enjoyed working at a number of schools on Well-being Days as part of Mental Health and Healthy Lifestyles talks, up to numbers of 60 per group, five times a day. I have left these events with teachers explaining that they wished there was more of this kind of information available for young people in schools. Which does beg the question. Why isn't it? Many variables in that answer but for now I would like to proceed those who see the value in Lifewise and help improve young peoples school and life experience.
Lifewise continues to grow organically and work with organisations working with young people who see value in Lifewise - we too can have the discussion.
