Work-related stress, depression or anxiety is defined as a harmful reaction people have to undue pressures and demands placed on them at work.
According to the HSE publication ‘Work related stress, depression or anxiety statistics in Great Britain, 2018’ it reports that 595,000 workers suffered from work-related stress, depression or anxiety (new or long-standing) in 2017/18. Labour Force Survey (LFS).
The total number of working days lost due to stress in 2017/18 was 15.4million days.
I run one to one sessions or group sessions with management and/or staff which look at how to identify stress in yourself and others, discuss creative and destructive thought patterns, coping mechanisms, time management. We discuss how to take back control of your life; look at listening skills, assertiveness and mindfulness exercises to help you cope with challenges so that you can make the best decisions and work effectively and efficiently. I have delivered workshops to Virgin, Southern Rail, YHA and Shropshire Council, and many more companies around the UK. In 2020 I was asked to organise the Business Health & Vitality Hub for Marches Growth Hub, a series of free online webinars for Shropshire Businesses. These will be held in May, June & July and feature some of the counties leading wellbeing speakers and teachers.
Stress, depression, and anxiety can kill. Bad decisions and poor productivity are common in stressful situations. In the workplace, these decisions can have a disastrous effect on colleagues and the business itself. In 2018 over 15m days were lost due to stress in the UK alone. I can help you put a wellness plan in place.
Mindfulness is a respected and researched technique clinically proven to help reduce depression, anxiety, and stress. By learning simple breathing techniques you can bring about change to the way you deal with problems and challenges. I offer 1-2-1 or group sessions at times suitable for you at affordable rates.
