Wellness in the Workplace


According to the World Health Organisation, there are many benefits of workforce health promotion to the employee and the organisation.

To the employee the benefits are a safe and healthy work environment, enhanced self esteem, reduced stress, improved morale, increased job satisfaction, increased skills or health protection, improved health and improved sense of well being. For the Organisation, it means a positive and caring image, improved staff morale, reduced staff turnover, reduced absenteeism and increased productivity in staff.

These workshops and seminars look to support staff and organisations to respond to stress in the workplace. They are specifically designed to increase awareness of mental health and well-being and to provide practical skills to increase self support, emotional resilience and personal effectiveness.

These workshops and seminars can be designed to meet the particular organisation’s needs. They cover a range of topics that include-

  • Managing stress and building resilience in staff
  • Stress, Anxiety, Depression – How stress impacts the body, how to recognise symptoms and what to do.
  • Work life balance – Practical skills and tools that address healthy lifestyle choices.
  • The importance of self awareness – helping employees recognise and identify emotions and feelings and how our thoughts and outlook can impact on how we feel about ourselves.
  • Managing conflict and increasing effective communication

These workshops and seminars are facilitated using powerpoint, Interactive and experiential group exercises (dyads and larger group), role plays. Mindfulness based stress reduction exercises are utilised to develop skills to increase self support and cultivate anxiety management skills.  These seminars draw on principles of Cognitive Behavioural therapy interventions.  Other group exercises are designed to be fun and increase interaction and team working between colleagues.

If you are interested in providing this in your workplace and organisation or if you have further queries contact Eileen via email for consultation.

Eileen also facilitates workshops on Trauma Informed Practice to organisations.
