Paradoxical Ideas for Your Mental Health

An Online Workshop presented by Dr Daryl Chow

The advice for better mental health that one finds online usually refers to some combination of “exercise, socialise, eat well, think positive and practice mindfulness”. However, you are a unique individual, and what works for “the average person” may not be the best advice for you.

A paradox is a notion or proposition that at first glance appears to be self-contradictory. In this workshop, Australia-based psychologist Dr Daryl Chow will introduce you to some paradoxical counterintuitive ideas to turn “average” advice on its head so that you can personalise them to improve your own mental well-being. 

You will also learn to design a personal paradoxical profile (P3) that is unique to you and will help you to come fully alive.

This online workshop is for people who value their inner life. If you want to be a better person, parent, family member, friend or colleague, and you are keen to take a step further to go beyond the usual advice that one reads online, this workshop is for you. 


Fee: $50.00 for Individual
