HSE estimates that 13.5 million working days were lost to stress, depression and anxiety in 2007/08.
Each new case of stress leads to an average of 31 days off work. Whatever the cause, long-term absence can be a costly and frustrating experience for employers. Helping staff to regain their health and return to work can be rewarding in many ways.
It is neither a talking therapy or treatment, it is a training programme during which participants learn to apply techniques to better manage stress and improve health and wellbeing.
Other treatments can be long-term, costly or emotionally painful but we have found that people using our techniques often make sustainable improvements over a relatively short period of time.
We provide a 3 phase programme of preparation, training and follow-up. Repeated use of the BodyMind techniques will enable you to re-programme your brain and body, leading to improved immune, digestive and cognitive function. Gradually you will reduce or eradicate your symptoms and create improvements to your health.
Our high success rates are due to extensive pre-coaching (preparation), a comprehensive assessment to ensure suitability, in-depth training and a range of on-going support, tailored to the needs of each individual client. You are informed, supported and empowered to break the cycle of chronic ill health.
Here is just a small sample of quotes from people who have done our programme….
I completed the programme in June 2009 and was back to work as a primary school teacher in September of the same year. I have recently been observed as part of my performance management and was graded 'Outstanding' in all areas. So I can confidently say I'm a really valued member of the team!
I was so ill I never imagined I would be well enough to return back to a job I absolutely love. Training under the expert guidance of Kate and Steve has, I believe made me a much more effective practitioner. Lisa W
“I returned to work two months after doing the training programme and am
and travelling for
10 hours a day, yet still doing gardening and other things in the evening. It’s almost a case of
‘ordinary’ people not being able to keep up with me”.
I was very unwell for some time before doing the training programme. I used to do parttime shift work at a pub and slept in-between, I had no life.
Within a month of doing the programme, I started a new full-time job, I was cautious but it all turned out brilliantly. I help vulnerable parents with childcare and I love it!
Now I am the one helping people and would never have been able to do it without the programme!
After being very poorly for over two years, I returned to work two months after doing the training programme, as an auxiliary nurse. I am doing really well, working an average of 38 hours a week in a very demanding but rewarding job. I also have a very full social life with my family. I continue to use the techniques when I need to. Julie O
I returned to voluntary work within 5 months of doing the programme after not having worked at all for several years.
I now work 3 days a week and love my job. I could work longer if I wanted but love all the other things in my life.
I also get to do other things in my life which is so full now.
