Kingstown College Launches Ireland’s First Dedicated Life Coaching Course for Practitioners who Work with Victims of Abuse

Kingstown College has announced Ireland’s first QQI accredited Life Coaching Course for practitioners who work with victims of abuse. The programme is being facilitated by Kingstown College Director, psychologist and leadership coach, Paula King and Cassie Moore, Life Coach and Author of the bestselling autobiography ‘Did You Hear Me Crying’

Cassie, who suffered abuse at the hands of her stepfather and mother, as well as later on in adulthood, has collaborated with Kingstown College Director Paula King to devise a unique and innovative programme specifically for practitioners dealing with abuse victims based on Life Coaching.

“Life Coaching has given me the tools to take control of my life and move forward in such a beautiful positive way. I learnt so much about myself and what I was capable of.”

“A number of national and international campaigns are currently taking place to help raise awareness about domestic violence against women and to promote the different services currently available to both the practitioners and victims. One in five Irish women experience domestic violence during their lifetime, and an estimated 213,000 women live with severe abuse from their boyfriends, husbands and partners.

We are confident this first of its kind 6 day programme will greatly equip practitioners with the specific life coaching tools and techniques to deal with both the trauma of abuse while also empowering victims with the necessary skills to take the next step forward away from their difficult past.”

The first programme will take place in early 2014 and further information can be found here

Theatre evening in honour of Paul Cusack to support CRY-Ireland, 2013

Paul Cusack.jpgPaul Cusack (a dearly remembered member of the Centre Stage Players) had his life tragically cut short at just 30 years of age when he became a victim of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome at his family home in Knocklyon.

In recognition of the practical help and support given by the Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY-Ireland) charity, who get no Government funding of any kind, Centre Stage Players are delighted to have this worthy cause as our charity partner for the Irish première production of Kindertransport in the Donal McCann Theatre at Terenure College.

This powerful piece of writing by Diane Samuels conveying the desperation on the part of parents having to send their children from Nazi Germany to a foreign land in the hope of surviving World War Two mirrors to some extent the sense of loss suffered by the families and friends of victims of SADS such as Paul. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis. Come along and support a very worthy cause!
