My services – For organisation and businesses of all sizes and from all sectors.
After the initial no obligation phone call I will visit your organisation to chat about what I do, how I work and what I can do for your business and employees. I tend to present an hour long mental health awareness presentation to employees, followed by questions and answers. My aim is to get everyone talking and sharing experiences, but I am conscious that not everyone feels comfortable with that, so I will make myself available privately. I will then sit down with employees on a 1-2-1 basis and we can have a chat about their present circumstances, issues and problems.
I will complete a number or questionnaires and scales covering mental health and well-being, anxiety, stress, anger, phobias and resilience. After compiling scores we can discuss options open to them, either seeing their GP and other professional medical support, contacting occupational health/ employee assistance scheme/or further talking therapy sessions such as CBT.
It is vitally important that employees understand that I am not an employee, I am not part of HR and my notes and other confidential material is only passed to HR if the client agrees, and if this would be beneficial.
Let's talk! - contact me to find out more about how I could help your business. References from HR departments I have worked with are also available on request.
Why is talking about mental health so important?
Through delivering the presentation I am to educate and raise awareness, which means breaking down the walls of stigma through shared experiences and stories. It means educating others on what mental illness is and helping those with illnesses know they are not alone and they can talk, share and realise that perceived stigma should not be a barrier to mental health improvement.
