DARE TO RETHINK work is strongly influenced by the work developed by Britta and Lee Eskey at COR ( DARE TO RETHINK methodology is based in the body, in scientifically-proven somatic principles that enable you to release your past, powerfully step into your present and then therefore being able to consciously decide the direction of your future.

DARE TO RETHINK uses theories developed by Eric Berne and taken forward by Rosemary Napper at taworks ( DARE TO RETHINK richly illuminates the relationships within oneself and between individuals, groups and systems. It provides concepts to consider personality, a theory of communication and a model of systems.

DARE TO RETHINK uses the Nonviolent Communication (NVC) or Compassionate Communication approach developed by Marshall Rosenberg. NVC is about connecting with ourselves and others from the heart. It's about seeing the humanity in us all. It's about recognising our commonalities and differences and finding ways to make life better for all of us.

DARE TO RETHINK is also influenced by the work developed of Noel Janis-Norton. When appropriate it uses Noel's common-sense approach to effective solution focussed techniques, using the question 'How can you do something different to get a different result?'.
