This podcast we have Anna Debenham, founder of the Insight Alliance with us - and this conversation will totally inspire you and give you hope for humanity and peoples potential to change!
Anna works with the incarcerated or previously incarcerated to help them with their current situation and find a new better future. She does that in a new and sustainable way: By looking at the mind. In a very human, common sense way she helps facilitate the unlocking of peoples minds and point towards the resilience within them. The result is they increase their wellbeing, mental health, and make different choices either while still in prison or when they get out. She explains that the only thing that truly can make somebody change is an internal shift - and that is what all her work is about. To check out more from what she is talking about, check out this video:
In this podcast you will hear stories about her own journey of doing this work, aswell as examples from her students in prison. This is the solution to truly rehabilitating and preventing, and looks for peoples mental health.
About Insight Alliance
The Insight Alliance uncovers the natural resilience and innate mental health all human beings already have inside them. It teaches a simple understanding of how our feelings, experience and state of mind works; an understanding that enables people to thrive in any circumstances.
Prospective outcomes of programs include a decrease in stress and depression; improved relationships, increased feelings of connection and trust, reduced levels of obsessive and judgmental thinking; increased desire to access education/jobs; a decrease in the probability of recidivism and/ or relapse and generally feeling more of their natural wellbeing.
About Anna Debenham:
My passion for nurturing health, wellbeing and resilience in myself and my clients reflects my own expanding grasp of the infinite possibilities of life that supports a peaceful and balanced state of mind.
The depth and breadth of my experience ranges from being part of a multi-disciplinary healing and support team for at-risk boys at the London organization, StreetWise Youth; establishing an outpatient program for a drug and alcohol recovery centre in Melbourne, Australia; to working as a coach and facilitator for Westminster council in London.
My career shifted when I came across this groundbreaking way of helping people understand the principles behind our state of mind. My experience working in a UK prison with Beyond Recovery ignited a love of helping those incarcerated and those transitioning to their freedom. Now I bring all my experience together as Director of The Insight Alliance.
The Insight Alliance is partnered with the YWCA as we expand to Coffee Creek woman’s prison and SCI in Salem. The programs continue to grow by word of mouth and by post-release individuals that stay connected to and work with the Alliance. The organic evolution of The Insight Alliance demonstrates the boundless potential and creative possibility of inspired people, and the wonderful power of fresh thought.
