The SWITCH ON SERIES has been created by psychologist Eve Ash to help people identify and change negative thinking patterns. Each program is short with a unique tempo and style great graphics and music… and no voices! It uses a simple approach based on the notion of ‘scripts’ or ‘messages’ in our head that help us or hinder us at work. It ows a range of typical thinking patterns that underpin the actions and work that people do. It shows how negative messages can be transformed with a proactive approach to: SWITCH ON POSITIVE MESSAGES!
