Corporate Wellbeing, Stress and Laughter

CORPORATE WELLBEING AND STRESS

Corporate wellbeing and stress management is a big issue. With budgets tight and staff levels pared to a minimum, you want happy, motivated, healthy people to produce great results, and to reduce the amount of time they might have off sick. When you invest in the wellbeing of your people, you are investing in the future of your organisation. You can enhance the mental and physical health of your people at work, and help to reduce sick absence, with bespoke stress awareness programmes. They may include effective ways to manage stress such as:

  • psychological and/or psychosensory techniques
  • mindfulness
  • meditation
  • guided relaxation sessions
  • time management
  • best practice management/leadership/communication skills
  • making meetings work more effectively
  • combating harassment and bullying
  • stress assessments and back-to-work coaching (see below)

amongst other areas, depending on what you require.

STRESS ASSESSMENTS & BACK-TO-WORK COACHING

I have also had great success using stress assessments coupled to effective back-to-work coaching using cutting edge psychological and psychosensory techniques including Havening Techniques®, NLP, EFT, and mindfulness and meditation.

In a randomised trial of 5000 patients, psychosensory therapy was more effective in treating common mental health problems than Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) or medication, and a single session of Havening reduced occupational impairment due to general anxiety and depression. Even Justin Bieber has used Havening Techniques for stress reduction.

I can see people while they are off sick either at home or a mutually convenient location, in order to help them return to better mental health and to work. Between two and six sessions may be required.

Very beneficial.”

Possible effects of laughter include:

Please note: laughter, like any other aerobic exercise, is not suitable for everyone as it does cause some exertion and internal pressure, so people with pre-existing medical conditions or recent surgery should take advice from their doctor before doing a laughter session.

We use Laughter Yoga and natural laughter skills based on the physicality of laughing, not comedy or humour (although there may be some).

Contact me to find out more or for a quotation for team-building and/or stress-busting laughter sessions and campaigns. We do ice-breakers or full day events, all tailored to your specific needs and budget. Nicola can also train your trainers and managers to utilise laughter techniques to boost performance.
