Is your business facing challenges or times of change? Or perhaps you want to reward your team with an opportunity that inspires their personal and professional development?
Our Chartered Clinical Psychologists offer a range of wellbeing and training services for employees and business leaders. Employing these services will foster a psychologically informed environment (PIE), which research has shown contributes towards improved wellbeing and resilience of employees, reduced levels of turnover and absenteeism, as well as enhanced productivity.
Our experience working with corporate clients has demonstrated that every business is unique in terms of its objectives, employees and values. This means that we understand the importance of ensuring that the training and wellbeing packages we deliver are flexible. That is why if the below topics do not quite work for you, you can contact us to arrange a consultation and we will design a bespoke package to meet the needs of you and your business.
To support our corporate clients, our psychologists can deliver presentations to large audiences, as well as more interactive workshops for smaller groups. A range of our pre-designed presentation topics are provided below.
Stress is one of the largest contributors to absenteeism and staff turnover. This session will offer an understanding of how our brains respond to stress and anxiety, as well as their limiting effects on sleep and our ability to function optimally in cognitive tasks such as problem-solving and creativity. Evidence based psychological theories such as cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), along with practical tools will be explored to enhance emotional resilience and performance in the workplace. The power of choice: Supporting you in pursuit of personal and professional values
Have you ever found yourself avoiding that meeting or presentation, or deciding not to go for that run you promised yourself you would do? We each face our own challenges, never more so than in the uncertainty and anxiety surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. What is more, at times we can find ourselves guided by the difficult thoughts and feelings arise which from these challenges, leading us to make choices that move us away from what is important to us and ultimately contribute to our daily stress.
This workshop will be based around the psychological framework underpinning Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). This evidence-based approach normalises our emotions and reminds us that we all have the power of choice, the power to choose ‘value-driven’ behaviours, which will foster fulfilment in our personal and professional lives. Practical techniques will be introduced to support you in the recognition and pursuit of what is important to you.
Positive psychology involves shining a light on the capabilities and values of a person and their workplace, rather than focussing on what’s ‘wrong’. This session will support you in identifying your own unique character strengths and what you bring to your organisation. It will also provide guidance on how to build a workplace environment that caters for employees’ basic psychological needs and fosters intrinsic motivation, growth and positivity, even in the face of a challenging climate.
NB: There is the option for this workshop to be extended to train managers in using the strength’s profiling tool with their colleagues / team. Digital resources will be provided. It can also form a helpful addition to appraisal frameworks.
Humans have an innate attraction to the natural world. Time spent in natural outdoor environments is scientifically proven to result in physiological and psychological benefits, such as lowered blood pressure and improved mood. Informed by mindfulness and ecotherapy, this session will introduce activities to support a deep and restorative connection with nature. It will also advise on the various wellbeing benefits of bringing the outdoors into the workplace, such as through green offices and ‘walk and talk’ meetings.
People spend a great deal of time identifying areas for development. But why is it that the goals we set for ourselves and others are not always realised? This session draws upon psychological models to understand the process of behaviour change and the pivotal role of self-regulation. This workshop will help you to bridge the gap between your intentions and your actualised behaviour change. Practical solutions are will discussed.
(*suitable for managers / training providers only)
Research suggests that less than 10% of what is learnt on a training course is actually transferred back to the workplace. This session will introduce Dr Cooley’s Model for Optimal Learning and Transfer (MOLT). Numerous psychologically-informed recommendations are provided, starting with what can be done to best prepare staff before a training course commences, how the training experience itself can be adapted to increase the likelihood of learning transfer, and what provisions can be made in the workplace environment to support staff in recognising transfer opportunities and in making successful changes.
Research shows that mindfulness can be a great tool to improve emotional wellbeing, stress and sleep. This seminar will introduce the concept of mindfulness, briefly explore the neuroscience behind it and provide opportunity for guided mindfulness practices. There will also be ideas about how you can incorporate this practice into your busy, day to day lives.
This workshop draws from the latest mind-body research, which shows the reciprocal connection between our mental health and physical wellbeing. We will look at the relationship between emotions, eating and exercise and consider practical tips to support you to take a holistic approach to your health and wellbeing.
If you or someone in your team is struggling with stress and anxiety which is related to or impacting on their work, then you can arrange for them to see our clinical psychologist for an individual consultation. Alternatively, you can organise a reflective group.
Reflective groups give you a safe opportunity to share your experiences of challenges at work, whilst connecting with and learning from your peers. This process can reduce the sense of being overwhelmed that can be experienced in stressful working environments and can foster stronger relationships between colleagues. This input may comprise a one-off meeting or a series of interventions. Whilst initially facilitated by a clinical psychologist, there is no reason your company could not continue this practice independently once the practice has been established.
