GP’s say 65% of all appointments have a stress related cause


Stress is not just a work issue; it is a social issue that affects work.

Organisations can play a big part in solving the problem, and helping their bottom line.

How happy people are at work, their levels of wellbeing, directly affects the quality of their work, their productivity, and the bottom line for the company.

Andrew Oswald
Professor of Economics and Behavioural Science
University of Warwick

At least one in six workers experiences common mental health problems, including anxiety and depression. Our research shows work is the biggest cause of stress in people’s lives, more so than debt or financial problems.

stress management workshops

enhancing  motivation engagement resilience


all in the mind

Why does IQ fall under pressure? How is decision-making and judgement affected by stress? Why do we think and behave differently?

Using the latest technology to allow you to see, as well as explore the latest advances in neuro-psychology. Learn how to maximise the power of the brain in a demanding world.

Discover tips and techniques to help you nurture the mind, make the most of who you are and fulfil your potential.

The best workshop I have ever been on.


performance under pressure

How can we retain clarity of thinking, energy and motivation whilst under pressure? How can we switch off after work and be fresh in the morning? How can we rise above the pressure and avoid the consequences of stress? Using a combination of cognitive psychology and the physiology of pressure we help build resilience and sustainability at work – and beyond.

This workshop explores what is known about how pressure affects the functions of the brain, altering some key neural processes vital in high intensity and critical roles. We open discussions about the issues and solutions surrounding performance under pressure.

I particularly liked the tips on how to relieve stress as this can be applied daily and help improve my overall work performance long term.


embracing change

Change is a natural part of human existence. So why is it sometimes so difficult to adapt to change? And what can we do about it? Change is challenging, however we are the most adaptable species on the planet.

Explore what modern psychology reveals are the things we can do to adapt quickly, positively and constructively, liberating us to take advantage of the opportunities that will always be offered during change.

Now I understand what happened during that big change, and what we could have done.


working in teams

How can we make sure working in a team is enjoyable and productive? What gets in the way of achieving that? What can we do about it, to help ourselves, and others in the team?

Human’s evolved working together in teams. The science of group dynamics is well understood and easy to grasp. Combined with simple practical principals from behavioural psychology to create a practical and accessible approach to working in teams.

Insightful, practical and rewarding.

This is going to help me immensely in all of my life, at work and at home.



In search of a still and peaceful mind? Mindfulness is the fastest growing alternative approach to achieving a calm and clear self. A synthesis of the ancient and the new – old traditions and the latest neuro-psychology and now approved by NICE for use in the NHS.

Subtle, life changing and profound.

Beautiful… Did not realise how this links to everyday work.
