The MYTERN skill is based on a simple metaphor: you are the driver and only you have control of your steering wheel; you can’t control anyone else’s steering wheel; you use your emotions as your GPS; each road you drive down is an emotion; and it is only you who decides which road of emotion you will drive down.
The aim is to be in control of your steering wheel no matter what road you are on.
Take Emotional Responsibility Now
The premise of MYTERN is that creating emotional intelligence, health and resilience is a skill that can be learnt by anyone at any age. Learning the MYTERN skill is simple, yet very powerful when practised daily.

What can it do for me?
- realise that there is no need to blame people or circumstance for how you feel
- gain control of your emotional responses to everyday stresses and challenges
- learn that you are not failing when you drive on the rougher roads for a short time – you are building your resilience
- realise that lifting others off the red road (due to the minor daily stressors) is not helping them to build their resilience
