PARADIGM SHIFT: “a time when the usual and accepted way of doing or thinking about something changes completely”

The current ever-changing COVID-19 global pandemic has impacted every one of us in both work and life experiences. A paradigm shift has the power to help us change our negative thoughts to positive ones and to embrace these changes as a catalyst to better work and life outcomes.

Elder Associates Limited is here to help you navigate these new and challenging waters by continuing to open our offices to provide counselling and other services in a safe, clean, and sanitized environment. Our aim is to keep everyone safe by minimizing exposure to EAL Care Team members, clients, vendors, and others.

We encourage each other to continue to follow the guidelines and protocols set forth by the offices of the Trinidad & Tobago Ministry of Health, the Chief Medical Officer, and the Ministry of National Security. Let us each develop that paradigm shift of the way we think to trigger wholesome and positive behaviours, and protect our mental health and well-being.
