Equip your employees with creative life skills to boost morale and improve productivity

Employee Wellbeing

If recent times have taught us anything, it’s that we can be incredibly adaptable. As we continue to explore new ways of working, there’s a fabulous opportunity to create healthier environments. 

These types of workplaces make good business sense. People will stay and give their best if they feel valued, supported, and fulfilled. 

Our nurturing wellbeing sessions offer the perfect place for people to connect, acknowledge some of life’s challenges and learn resilience.

Each session is highly interactive and includes uplifting creativity and mindfulness alongside presentations and discussion space. 

We offer three options:

  1. Choose one of our brilliant signature sessions 
  2. Design a package – combine signature sessions with listening and discussion spaces to create a programme with lasting impact
  3. Utterly bespoke – want something completely different? Let’s see what we can come up with!

Each booking comes with

  • our toolkit of activities to add to your wellbeing resources
  • a bonus follow-on 20 minute wellbeing boost session

“The tutors' manner, skills and competencies were outstanding. The delivery, timing, engagement tools and ethos were excellent.”

Science of stress

This course explores the science of stress so delegates leave empowered to recognise their stress signs and equipped to respond to themselves in a kind and healthy manner.

When we are in stressful situations, our body releases chemicals to stimulate specific physical responses. If these chemicals are not used, they accumulate in our system. Over time, our capacity to cope with life can become reduced.

We get noticeably stressed more easily and can end up in a cycle of negative feelings, critical of our inability to manage whilst simultaneously being overwhelmed by the situations we find ourselves in.

This course helps people break that cycle so they feel better able to be kind to themself whilst they manage life’s challenges.

By the end of the session, participants will:

  • Have an understanding of the body’s chemical responses to stress
  • Identify their own stress triggers
  • Understand how to monitor and regulate their stress levels
  • Explored how stress presents in different people
  • Learn five stress management activities

Following the course, delegates will have the tools to manage their own stress. They will also understand how stress presents in their colleagues so they can empower each other towards excellent self-care.

"I know how hard it is to work in a demanding role. Finding time to practice self-care can feel ridiculously challenging.
Because I ‘get it’ I’ve been able to design sessions that work, making sure to incorporate plenty of simple, practical tools so people who do difficult jobs can take better care of themselves. "

According to a 2022 McKinsey Institute report*, the global level of employee burnout is around 20%. One in five people feels emotionally, physically and cognitively exhausted by life. 

Surely we can do better. 

A burnt-out person cannot do their best work. Taking care of people makes for better teams and greater productivity. Let’s create workplaces where people thrive.

By the end of the session participants will:

  • Define burnout 
  • Identify the five stages of burnout
  • Assess their own burnout levels
  • Understand the consequences of ignoring burnout symptoms
  • Explore team approach to preventing burnout
  • Be inspired to continue developing their creative wellbeing toolkit

Equipping people with the knowledge and tools to look after themselves is part of the solution. This session could literally save lives.

"If I knew then what I know now, I might have taken action sooner and avoided burnout.
Whether it stems from compassion fatigue or systemic frustration, people need safe spaces to explore the healthiness of their relationship with work, so they can take better care of themselves. Of course, it’s not all down to the individual - sometimes workplaces need to take action too. These sessions help get everything out in the open so that wellbeing can be improved, for the benefit of all."

“The section on burnout brought home the reality of what people are experiencing. I'm glad they were able to express their feelings in a safe space and within a context where they were being looked after. The members of the team who attended were all helped and spoke highly of the training”

Empowered Relationships - An Introduction

This session looks at the Drama Triangle and Empowerment Dynamic and helps delegates understand how their responses (conscious and unconscious) influence interactions. 

When we learn to recognise our own patterns – (eg people-pleasing and ‘rescuing’), we are empowered to act differently. 

This has huge implications when we’re working in supportive roles. Boundaries become clearer and easier to maintain. Interactions become more solution focussed. Clients, in turn, are empowered. 

By the end of the session, participants will:

  • Understand the Drama Triangle model and how it applies to working life
  • Recognise the signs of Persecutor, Victim and Rescuer
  • Be familiar with the Empowerment Dynamic
  • Explore the difference between the two models
  • Identify their own patterns
  • Explore how to make changes to foster happier, healthier relationships

This session has the potential to springboard lasting change. When people are enabled to understand how their own patterns influence the quality of their interactions, changes can be made and life gets better all round.

"There can be so much energy lost to unnecessary drama. Learning how to stop taking responsibility for things beyond my control and getting better at setting boundaries has been a game-changer for me. Understanding how these patterns play out gave me the power to create healthier relationships. The models are useful for personal and work life.
This course will be helpful for anyone in a supportive role, whether team-leader or managing challenging clients. It reduces stress and leaves everyone more energy for doing great work."
