A message from Derek


Hi, I am the creator of The Strong Mind and Strong Heart (S.M.A.S.H) program. 


The program is an empowering motivation tool that explores reasons why some people are able to succeed at goals set and why others are unable to progress. It teaches preventive measures to overcome mental blocks, that can spiral out of control and create a negative impact on young lives.


Demonstrating to young people how to become more assertive. Resisting the lure of gang culture and avoiding gang initiation can be difficult, we instruct the techniques to face the challenges.


The S.M.A.S.H program looks at psychosomatics, illustrating the importance of wellbeing through a union of the mind and the body, the mindset and physical capacity. For instance, how healthy eating improves your levels of concentration and happiness and hunger can make you feel discomfort and antisocial. How a strong mind improves your performance at challenges and why doubting yourself can influence poor results.


When a concept is established early in life’s cycle, the principle, values and techniques remain in the subconscious helping to turn negative emotions into positive. 


Through the S.M.A.S.H program talks and workshops, the techniques used to overcome challenges are explained. Obstacles can become opportunities to progress or even to grow. 


For students, through scenario analysis, examples and group interaction, the following Key Stages are explained:• 

  • Self-awareness
  • Attitude• 
  • Respecting others
  • Self-respect
  • Discipline
  • Health
  • Happiness


The world is aligned with would be leaders, doctors, lawyers and politicians but because they were students lacking the confidence to pursue a dream, having stumbled at the first hurdle, they did not pursue their dreams.
