We teach your employees all the skills they need to manage stress, so they can thrive.

Managing Stress

Stress is a silent killer. It is the number one culprit leading to problems concentrating, focusing, missing deadlines, insomnia, anxiety, depression, lowered immunity and many other health concerns. Having effective strategies to manage stress successfully has a domino effect.

Workplace mindfulness

Start the journey of quietening your mind, turning down the monkey chatter. Focussing on the present moment nonjudgmentally, ultimately improves concentration and focus whilst at the same time lowers stress and anxiety.  Teaching the invaluable skill of mindful meditation as well as other useful mindful strategies, enables employees to reap the rewards of lowered stress levels and improved wellbeing.

Sleep improvement

Poor sleep and sleeping habits take their toll on employees.  Lack of sleep contributes to increased cortisol levels and ultimately stress levels.  This hijacks the frontal lobe of the brain. That part of the brain needed for higher order executive functioning at work.  Better sleep hygiene correlates with improved productivity.

Anxiety management

When anxiety at work is debilitating for your employees and prevents them from working effectively, simple effective ways of learning to manage the anxiety has enormous benefit.  Knowing how to use low levels of anxiety as an impetus and motivator to work or focus is essential.  Regulating and learning to self regulate our anxiety effectively are key factors in mental health and wellness.

Building resilience

Equipping your employees with life-enhancing skills will boost their mental health, grow their resiliency and strengthen mental health. Using the latest neuroscience research to back our teachings we will give your employees fresh insights on how to build resilience both in the workplace and outside of the workplace.

Maximising motivation

It’s not only about money, but rather looking at the wholistic approach to motivating employees to work effectively and feel appreciated and valued.  From intrinsic to extrinsic factors different ways of refreshing and recalibrating employees will be addressed.

Improving mood

Everyone needs a pick me up at various times in their life, and there are numerous healthy things that can be done to uplift yourself.  The simplest and most effective strategies are those that don’t require pills, potions, elixirs or even $$$$.  Considering that most of us spend at least a third of our time at work, it makes good sense to enjoy our time more at the office.

Manage depression

Understanding the cycle of our emotions, and that there are some days where our mood is better than others is key to effective functioning.  However, noticing when someone is particularly quiet, withdrawn or behaving differently at work, is a red flag.  Giving employees the skill and confidence to ask the important question “Are you ok?”, can be life changing and life saving.  This is about helping ourself and those around us.
