Wellbeing in the Workplace

Wellbeing in the Workplace

Stress can be a normal part of our lives and most people manage various amounts of stress in a satisfactory manner.

Sometimes, however, stress tips over into distress when the usual functioning in the work environment becomes disrupted, difficult and sometimes impossible to manage. Much has been researched and written about mental health and stress in the workplace and forward-thinking organisations are placing staff health and wellbeing at the centre of their planning.

It is well recognised that a happy workforce is at its most efficient and effective. Offering individuals a few simple practical tools to help them gain a greater sense of balance in their working environment is beneficial to all, minimises staff absence and improves efficiency.

Group sessions

We offer group sessions, either as a one-off or as a series, to introduce staff to some simple tools to enhance their wellbeing at work. These sessions are presented with the intention that individuals follow up and regularly practice the exercises given to help reduce stress and open up a more mindful way of working.  

All presenters are members of the School and are volunteers who practice the mindful working methods we offer in their own lives and therefore see the benefits that they bring and can give guidance based on their own experience.

A one-off session for a group of up to 15 people, lasting 30-40 minutes, costs £100.  A series of six sessions over six weeks costs £500. These prices are based on locations in central Croydon. Any significant travel costs would be added to these rates as expenses by mutual consent.
