I felt inspired to write this as we are coming to the end of an amazing week on the current Practitioner course and if you like being empowered with your own health and enjoy helping other people then training to be a Systematic Kinesiology Practitioner may be for you. Any one of any age, from any background, can learn, as we all start at the beginning together (with the Foundation Course) regardless of what you do or do not know about health. I knew nothing when I began at age 21. I had only worked in banks and building societies!
As I began my training with TASK I had no idea how it would shape me, my life and the depths of what I would learn to help myself and others…Not only just professionally, but also in my personal life. I feel so grateful that Systematic Kinesiology taught me to cope and support myself positively during stressful and challenging situations. It has also helped me work around being a Mum and to financially support myself and four children, as well as be a more mindful consistent parent. Kinesiology has helped my communication with everyone, and to find out what nutrition my body needed and to eat what is good for me. It has helped me stay physically strong and flexible and enjoy good health and consistent energy levels for the last 35 years.
I now have had the pleasure of running TASK since my father handed the reins over to me when he retired in 2000.
At TASK we have always taught how to become a great all round Practitioner, we don’t just teach you a load of techniques and send you off to put it all together yourself. We layer your training thoroughly, building up every aspect of being a Practitioner for you to absorb the material and be confident within your own practice.
For example, going back to this week on the 5 day TACT (The Advanced Communication Training) workshop which is a part of the Practitioner course, our new students have been learning –
- Skills to sensitively deal with others and work with difficult issues
- Recognising which particular sense one uses to communicate and learn from
- The significance of spoken and unspoken communication
- How to express feelings responsibly and effectively
- Presentation skills speaking to small or large groups
- Active listening skills, rapport and feedback
- Subconscious learning and emotional availability.
- Lack of self esteem spells LOSE – techniques to build self esteem…to name just a few.
It has been a remarkable week of learning for us all and our trainee practitioners expressed feeling new levels of confidence with the knowledge they have learned.
With deeper understanding of ourselves we can then develop the wisdom to help others on a deep level.
As we work through the rest of the course we will be looking into all the body’s systems and energies learning how to detect and rectify imbalance with clear, thorough, easy to follow protocols.
