We start with a simple realisation – many managers, HR professionals and Directors find it hard to resolve issues relating to mental health at work, yet we have significant experience in this area. We know that it is individual relationships that make a difference. We also know that no organisation can afford to throw money at problems hoping they will go away. We are a small professional team; you have your own organisational infrastructure, so we don’t want you to pay for ours. Instead, we provide access directly to the people who are going to help you create a difference.
We strongly support the notion, championed by Dame Carol Black in her report “Working for a healthier tomorrow”, that work is good for us – it is not only a source of income and activity, it is a key component in our social life and in our sense of place in the world. At the same time, we realise that the challenges posed by mental ill-health in the workplace need a considered, professional approach that works best when it is collaborative and well-informed.
We bring a number of disciplines to bear on the problems – Management, Behavioural Psychology, Psychotherapy, Counselling, Coaching – supported by experts in their field.
This is not about psychiatry, because that is best provided by the NHS in the UK. Instead it is about developing the workplace conditions for success, by ensuring that the appropriate resources are applied as efficiently and effectively as possible to diminish the obstacles to success.
This is not about soft, fluffy abstract concepts. It is about measurable outputs, agreed solutions, return on investment.
This is about people working well, managed well, in organisations that are performing well.
Invite us to come and talk to you about all this and more.
