Staff Wellbeing - Looking after employees is something businesses increasingly are investing time and money into. Rightly so. Having a member of staff off sick can be costly affair, not just in terms of paying wages/ benefits to someone not there but plugging the gap, plus the impact on the remaining team members.
Retaining staff is also in the interests of the business too - a gap between the leaver leaving and the joiner joining an have an impact on the rest of the team, even if a short term measure such as a temporary worker is used, in tems of disruption to the service, training and someone learning the job role. There is also the cost of recruiting - done via a recruitment agency the costs are clearer - if done in-house the costs of reviewing the job description, writing the advert, advertising, dealing with enquiries, short listing, interviewing, chasing referees, checking qualifications & criminal records plus induction and initial training etc are harder to pinpoint, but still exist. Plus think of all of the training someone might have had - when they leave they take that with them.
Much easier (and cheaper) to retain, develop and grow existing staff. Looking after the wellbeing of staff is one of the ways in which you can do that.
My three hour workshop aims to give delegates an insight into strategies that they may find helpful with regards to keeping a positive mindset and managing stress. It is an introduction into:
- the power of positive thinking
- recognising emotional states
- recognising negative thoughts
- controlling stress
- living a happy life
At the end of the workshop, delegates will have improved insight into how their thoughts and behaviour effect their mood, plus a take-away toolkit consisting of pro-active and emergency psychological remedies.

Through the NHS, Employer Assistance Programmes, and Private Health Schemes it is now easy for employers to provide staff with psychological help, as and when it is required.
Small business owners however - particularly sole traders and start-up businesses - may be less inclined to invest time or money into either the scheme itself or the time involved in getting along to an appointment with a practitioner.
Until its too late and the signs are there physically and / or mentally - your body and mind now dictating to you that you need medical help.
I can offer time-flexible Cognitive Behaviour Therapy skype / phone sessions to people struggling with high stress levels, low mood and anxiety.
I also off a confidential session service for business owners / managers.
Being a Director or Sole Trader can be a lonely life, and can involve a unique set of stressors which people around may not understand, or it might not be possible to share. Having been a sole trader and currently a company director, this is something I understand.
This is not a business coaching session, alhough it will be billed as such.
In these sessions I aim to be a supporter, an allie, a trusted confidente, someone who presents the opposing view and helps give clarity around decision making. Someone who may have suggestions for things not considered, or be able to signpost to relevent people / resources..
