Is your workplace mentally healthy?

Are your employees…

  • Finding it difficult to switch off after work?
  • Experiencing elevated levels of stress?
  • Losing focus and procrastinating on major tasks?
  • Rehashing mistakes over and over in their head; lacking resilience?
  • Relying on coffee to stay mentally alert?
  • Getting caught up in workplace conflict?

When your employees are struggling to manage stress, business just isn’t going to go as smoothly as it could.

1 in 5 Australians have taken time off work in the past 12 months because they felt stressed, anxious, depressed or mentally unhealthy.1

In Australia, 3.2 days per worker are lost each year through workplace stress. Stress-related absenteeism and presenteeism are directly costing Australian employers $10.11 billion a year.2

In workplaces that employees consider “mentally healthy”, mental health related absenteeism almost halves.1

With workplace related stress on the rise worldwide,3 we can’t afford NOT to invest in workplace wellbeing.

Creating a mentally healthy workplace is good for your employees, & good for business

How we can help:

We’ll tailor a mindfulness or emotional intelligence (EQ) workshop (or 4!) to your team’s needs, and equip your employees with lifelong strategies for reducing stress and overwhelm while improving their focus, productivity, resilience, and communication skills.

Our workshops are practical, backed by science, and full of relatable stories and laughs to engage even the most skeptical of participants.

Why mindfulness?

Research shows that mindfulness practice can increase resilience, productivity, creativity, and focus, as well as reducing stress and anxiety, and improving mental health and wellbeing.

The unconventional mindfulness skills we teach in our workshops are lifelong tools that will benefit participants both at work and at home, helping to increase employee engagement and productivity, increase emotional intelligence, and improve interpersonal relationships.

We specialise in unconventional mind-taming strategies for practical people.

Just straight up strategies with no rainbow-and-butterfly jibber jabber.

The skills I learnt from Andrea have totally changed my life! The techniques allowed me to overcome self-perpetuating negative thought patterns and start forming real connections with the people around me.

I really liked the fact that Andrea was able to convey complex things like ‘mindfulness’ in a very relatable way, 

I loved that she explained the physiology behind things which helps put it into perspective and makes the tools easier to understand and utilise

Thanks again for today – really loved this session, it was brilliant.

Our company talks about mindfulness a lot but we have never had anyone come in and talk to us about what it is, exactly how to be mindful, and why it is so important.

The presentation was amazing, really well delivered. Loved Andrea’s inspiring back story.

Very engaging, inspiring and informative – will benefit my career.

Thanks!

I now understand what mindfulness is and how amazing the change is once I made it part of the daily routine. I’m calmer at work and I can deal with issues that arise better than I ever have before.

I’ve had trouble sleeping in the past because my brain doesn’t want to turn off. Things I learnt in the workshop have definitely sorted that out.

This program was life changing experience for me and I’d recommend it to anyone.
