HYPE Workshop

Testimonials

dylan hype.jpgI found HYPE after spending several months following my termination from a Human Services profession. I spent these several months unable to hold a steady job and steadily losing my sense of self-care and motivation to succeed. I told myself I would attend HYPE with all the energy and motivation I had left. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to do so.

The facilitators of the HYPE course I attended, Amanda and Rafe, were empathetic of what led me to attending the course. Through their guidance I was able to come to better terms of what caused my termination and learn to better respond to negative stimuli. I was better able to accept responsibilities of my previous actions; using lessons learned to move forward in my recovery.

With the facilitators’ patience, understanding and insight, I was able to find my own way of recovering. I was able to learn vital skills or re-learn skills I had long forgotten. Of these skills, calendaring and note taking proved to be most beneficial to my recovery. While I was in the workforce, I had the bad habit of keeping track of everything in my head, only adding to the daily stress that contributed to my termination. By using my phone for calendaring and note taking, the stress on my mind has been significantly reduced, providing me with an increase to my energy and motivation. This has kept me much more prompt to commitments and better able to reschedule meetings and appointments as needed in addition to improving reminders as to what are important and urgent for each of these.
