We offer evidence-based training and workshops around mental health, wellbeing, stress, resilience, work/life balance, coping with change and self-care. We specialise in bespoke design tailored to the needs of your organisation.

Company Wellbeing Programmes

Working together we can embed nationally recognised core principles of mental health promotion within your organisation, aligning to your core values and workplace objectives. We can help you to address workplace culture around mental health and deliver positive action. This includes strategy development, action planning and implementation.

Why addressing mental health is fundamental to your business.

Investing in mental health will see a return on investment of £5.30 for every £1 spent on interventions to raising awareness of mental health (Deloitte, 2022). By addressing mental health in the workplace, you will see the following 6 actions: improved retention of staff and skills, reduced sickness absence, improved performance, building an inclusive culture, higher staff satisfaction and healthier and equitable workplaces.

Hear our latest thoughts on all things concerned with Mental Health & Wellbeing

As part of our activity to mark Stress Awareness Month last April, Claire ran a session for Cats Protection’s employees on managing stress and learning to thrive. Hugely experienced in the mental health sphere and very personable, Claire’s session went down really well and equipped our people with vital, everyday skills to cope with stress. We highly recommend her sessions! But don’t take our word for it – here is some feedback from some of the attendees: “Trainer was excellent. Very valuable information that should be known in every work place! Thankfully a shift is happening. Thank you very much for this session.”, “Some new techniques for de-stressing that I haven't seen before.”, “Good, friendly atmosphere and lots and helpful hints and tips.”
