The Decider Life Skills are CBT skills that are effective, fun, memorable and easy-to-use.

Proactive Mental Health for Adults and Children: One of the greatest challenges is teaching adults and children the skills to understand and manage their own emotions and mental health.

We are experienced Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapists and co-creators of The Decider.

CBT MENTAL HEALTH SKILLS THAT ARE EFFECTIVE, FUN, MEMORABLE AND EASY TO USE.

To use at HOME, in EDUCATION, in the WORKPLACE, and in SOCIAL and HEALTH settings.

Our passion is PROACTIVE MENTAL HEALTH.

THE DECIDER LIFE SKILLS ARE DIFFERENT

• Developed with service users, teachers & students
• Evidence-based (CBT & DBT) and effective
• Memorable and easy to use
• Creative, fun and interactive
• Affordable training for everyone

THE DECIDER LIFE SKILLS contains 12 of The Decider skills for young people, adults and children - Proactive mental health for all ! The Decider Life Skills enable everyone to learn effective coping skills before they need them and build resilience. Ideal for use in schools, youth groups, GP surgeries, prison and probation services, businesses, care services, education services, student support services. They are also used in mental health services as a waiting list intervention.

The Decider Life Skills Trainer Manual and workshop are for teachers, youth leaders, GPs, school nurses, health visitors, social workers, HR personnel, occupation health professionals, general nurses (adult and child), parents and carers.

About the Authors:

Michelle Ayres and Carol Vivyan are Guernsey-based Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapists. In 2010, they developed The Decider out of their own clinical practice. Both mental health nurses and Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapists, they were tasked in 2010 with introducing a CBT/DBT skills group in response to service need in Guernsey. The Decider developed as a result of that initial pilot group. (see the full story below!)

We asked those very experienced service users for their feedback: what they wanted from the skills group, what helped and what didn't, what they wanted and what they didn't want. The client and clinician feedback from that and subsequent groups have been overwhelmingly positive.

Eventually, we put each memorable and effective skill down on paper and produced The Decider: A Skills Manual.

The Decider Skills are based on Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy for which there is a wealth of evidence to support their efficacy at treating mental health problems.

In order to make the skills more memorable and therefore more effective, we have simplified each skill, added a visual prompt, and teach the skill in a fun and engaging style, including demonstrations and music.
