Wellbeing is on the agenda for most people in 2021
Wellbeing is being talked about more and more due to the affects COVID-19 has had on people's mental and physical wellbeing. 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 individual sessions for people suffering with stress and I also organise Wellbeing in the Workplace 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.
Wellbeing Workshops for the public and businesses
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. They were offered to local businesses to help management cope with the stress that COVID restrictions had placed upon them and their staff.
"We asked June to come in and do some mindfulness work with us as a team – she was amazing. The session was a pleasure, and although June pushed us out of our comfort zone she was always supportive. I feel everyone came away a bit more relaxed and definitely more in tune with how they can take some time out." Laura Fisher, Shropshire Council, Shrewsbury
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.
