Since the first lockdown, record numbers of employees are experiencing stress and poor mental health. Depression has more than doubled and anxiety has increased significantly as has loneliness among younger people. It’s estimated that the yearly cost of poor mental health is equivalent to £1300 per employee in the UK.
Many businesses are now concerned about how best to support their managers and staff but aren’t sure how to have conversations about mental health. Some are worried about getting it wrong, the legal implications and the impact on their reputation and bottom line.
I help businesses talk about mental health and turn employee wellbeing into a strategic advantage. As a mental health trainer, clinical nutritional therapist, mindfulness teacher and yoga instructor, I have in-depth knowledge of wellbeing.
I help managers to develop the knowledge and skills they need to support employees. I also equip employees with practical knowledge and tools to support themselves and others.
Thrive and Well’s services include wellbeing audits, mental health training, coaching, nutrition, yoga and meditation. I work with a number of training facilitators who are handpicked and highly skilled.
