Work-related stress and poor mental health in employees are on the increase – ‘every year, one in four people in the UK is affected by a mental health problem ‘ (Mental Health UK).
Businesses are now more aware of the importance to look after the mental well-being of their employees and are increasingly committed to providing them with the support they need. In turn, healthier and happier employees are more productive and dedicated.
how we help
I provide interventions at various levels, from preventative through to treatment. These can include consultations for Human Resources and Occupational Health, coaching, workshops, focused groups for leaders and employees, and Psychological Therapy.
I have a track record in improving the mental health and emotional well-being of those employees who may:
- be at risk of developing a mental health problem which might affect their productivity and presence at work
- be suffering from a mental health problem (including those who are on long-term sick leave and are working towards a phased return).
Please contact me to discuss your individual needs. Interventions can be provided both at our conveniently central London practice or on site at your workplace to maximise productivity. Direct contracts can be arranged with your organisation to enable employees to be seen promptly.
OVERCOMING TRAUMA, WORK STRESS AND BURNOUT
A structured step-by-step Programme based on a combined approach of ACT (Acceptance Commitment Therapy), EMDR (Eye Movement Desentisization Reprocessing) and CFT (Compassion Focused Therapy).
Research shows that the way we respond to stressful events can be rooted in past trauma and that this can be re-triggered when we face new challenging situations. When this happens, our emotional reactions can feel disproportionate and the coping strategies we employ unhelpful, leading to increased stress and burnt out.
This is due to the way our autonomic nervous system (ANS) works, always looking for external cues of threat or safety so to keep us safe. But trauma and chronic stress can impact on the normal functioning of our ANS.
But it does not have to be this way. Let’s restore and re-train our nervous system to a healthy self-regulation.
