At what point do we come to the realisation that we have to be honest with ourselves and others?
At what point do we know when to ask for help?
At what point are we ready to encourage and embrace support?
There will come a point in our lives that we 'Do' have that realisation and the need to be honest with ourselves. Sadly for some 'that' time sometimes comes what seems to be 'too late' and can then leave a feeling that all hope has gone in ever having the chance of knowing ourselves or understanding our true nature. The pain of this loss can sometimes be unbearable and can lead to a feeling of despair! The Five Mountains Organization believe that every passing minute is an opportunity to turn a life around and we are here to help with just that. The Five Mountains have a unique programme that will encourage and empower each individual to embark on their journey of self-actualisation, to learn how to gain personal trust and to again be trusted, this we believe is achievable within our safe and confidential environment setting.
At what point do we ask for help? This alone can be a very daunting task as the feeling of self denial can sometimes be stronger than the individuals desire for change, but the Five Mountains believe that there is always a point of realisation within individuals that they are not happy with their behaviour, with this feeling we believe that it is time to seek help and support. The facade of life is made up of many layers, good and bad, that can build up over time. By the accumulation of too many layers we can lose sight of our true selves and the good of what makes us who we really are, only by peeling back and letting go of the bad layers do we re-discover our true essence and by recognising this is when help is truly needed. The Five Mountains will never refuse the opportunity in helping any individual that seeks for the very help and support that is needed.
Having realised the necessity and benefit of self worth through honesty we can reach the point of requesting the necessary support. The difficulty that now remains is having the courage to trust and embrace the support on offer. The Five Mountains holds integral to its structure the importance of providing such a safe and confidential environment.
What is domestic Violence and how can the Five Mountains help?
Domestic violence is “Any incident of threatening behaviour, violence or abuse (psychological, physical, sexual, financial or emotional) between adults who are or have been intimate partners or family members, regardless of gender or sexuality. This includes so called ‘honour based violence’, female genital mutilation (FGM) and forced marriage.”
Domestic violence impacts across each city. The Five Mountains Programme aim in Reducing and Preventing Domestic Violence and deem it essential to achieve equality in any city by achieving;
The Five Mountains Domestic Violence programme is uniquely designed to include all perpetrators and this could be male, female, individuals in same sex relationships and transgenders, with a separate programme run for LGBT. The Five Mountains believe that everyone has a right to be heard and most importantly understood. To achieve these objectives the Five Mountains utilise and combines two modes of intervention;
The encounter group model. The ‘encounter’ model places emphasises on the client’s personal experience and the sharing of those experiences in a facilitated social engagement.
The psycho-educational model. The psycho-educational aspect introduces a topic-focused 'themed' element to the sessions.With these combined modes the Five Mountains programme emphasise on client participation and work creativity to provide a therapeutic intervention with the aim of facilitating transformation and change.The Five Mountains programme first and foremost promotes client self-awareness. Successful and sustainable change requires self-awareness, and for any individual that requires two things; i) knowledge, which can be learnt from psycho-educational theories pertaining to human development and behaviour (the themed psycho-educational part of the programme) and ii) support, i.e. a community that can share similar experiences, which is needed for reflection, personal development and change (the group encounter part). It is only within an environment intrinsically holding both these modalities of intervention that a person can develop and learn without perpetuating previous dysfunctional experiences and behaviours. Honest communication is at the core of the work and is for the client the beginning of a truer bases for health and well-being. It is only in compliance and a lack of honest communication that a person loses integrity and has a dysfunctional basis for living.
