Mental Health At Work

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) have shown that 15.4 million working days were lost to work-related stress in 2017/18. These statistics also reveal that of all working days lost in the same year, 57% related to stress, anxiety and depression.

All of this is at a cost to the individual and to the employer.

It makes sense that if people manage to maintain their psychological wellbeing, then within work there will not only be reduced absence, but also: less presenteeism, greater creativity, improved decision making, better working relationships, improved focus, better management of challenges, reduced staff turnover and improved confidence in individuals. If employees feel fulfilled at work, then they will be eager to perform at their best. Better mental health therefore equals greater productivity.

Within the workplace it’s important to have a health and wellbeing programme that works for the individual organisation. At Essential Self, we understand this and promote psychological wellbeing and mental health through a variety of ways:

MindBody Workshops:

Focussing on the three key areas of Resilience, Stress Release and Positive Attitude, our MindBody workshops use a holistic approach by fusing physical exercises together with mindfulness techniques and meditation. The resulting workshops provide individuals with the techniques and skills necessary to promote individual wellbeing, whether they’re at home or at work. The workshops are 3 hours long, and provided in conjunction with Siren Fitness

Mental Health Workshops:

We provide 2-hour workshops for the workplace which centre around a variety of themes: Stress Release, Positive Attitude, Resilience, Stress Management, Maximise Your Mental Health and Mindfulness. All of these workshops help individuals to identify key issues within the workplace and provide them with the strategies and tools needed to enhance their wellbeing.

Stress Management:

Essential Self also provides assistance through one-to-one stress management coaching. This approach focusses on the whole process of stress helping employees to understand individual causes and triggers of stress at work. By working to an individualised plan, we help employees improve self-awareness and teach individuals to use a variety of psychological tools which will help them to manage their own experience of stress within the workplace.

Seminars, Talks and Consultation:

Essential Self can provide talks and seminars for the workplace which focus on mental health. These can either be generic, dealing with broader issues such as mental health awareness or talks can be bespoke, focussing on specific topics such as stress at work, anxiety and depression.

Essential Self also provides a consultation service offering organisations an assessment of their existing mental health strategies, providing further advice on how to make improvements.

Prices are available on enquiry and after discussing individual need. All initial telephone consultation is free so why not call Essential Self to discuss your needs?
