Employees are tired, stressed and feeling overwhelmed

Office workers doing yoga

…. and 1 in 5 say their job impacts their mental health in a negative way

And there's more - as the UKG Global Survey states.   At the end of the workday, 43% of employees are “often” or “always” exhausted, and 78% say that stress negatively impacts their work performance. This stress from work carries into personal lives, too, as employees say work negatively impacts their home life (71%), wellbeing (64%), and relationships (62%).  

Mental health issues in the workplace not only affect employee engagement, productivity and reputation, but there’s a significant financial cost to the business too - in fact the Mental Health Foundation estimates this cost as £1652 per employee per year.

This is the backdrop to which many organisations are operating currently. And that’s without factoring in the impact of our post-pandemic world, including hybrid working - as well the 'usual' organisational changes, restructures and downsizing.

The good news is that mindfulness can help.  And so can I.

Why workplace mindfulness with me?

Mindfulness is scientifically proven to:

  • Decrease the impact of stress and anxiety
  • Increase personal resilience and effectiveness
  • Build empathy and authenticity
  • Promote effective communication through active listening
  • Enhance the ability to make effective decisions and manage change effectively
  • Support the growth of effective relationships and teams
  • Foster a sense of inclusion to combat loneliness
  • Positively impact mental and physical health

.... and all of the above are vital attributes which help colleagues thrive.

I am highly experienced in bringing mindfulness into the workplace, having done so since 2012. I do this through a range of offerings, tailored to meet the unique and specific requirements of each organisation I work with.  My clients range from local charities to major global organisations - in sectors as diverse as end-of-life care and financial investment. I have an exemplary track record of adding value through mindfulness, with outstanding feedback from participants.

"I don't know if I'm in a different mind space from when I've experienced similar workshops before, or if you have an approach that's clicked - but it's really worked and made me look into how I could try this more regularly. Thank you, Jayne". - Helen B

My knowledge spans the depth and breadth of scientifically-validated mindfulness approaches, accredited coaching strategies, as well as personal experience of life’s ‘ups and downs’ - including redundancy and re-training to set up a successful business. This brings my mindfulness training alive - making it practical, relevant and sustainable ... in and out of the workplace.

"This workshop really gave me a good overview of what mindfulness is - and how to introduce it into my daily life. A perfect balance between theory and practice - and Jayne is a great facilitator. Thank you for offering this course" - Hugh S

I combine my experience with intuition, warmth, compassion and curiosity to create appropriate mindfulness offerings. I offer optimal value and positive impact for your colleagues and for your organisation, wherever it’s at right now.

"That was a great introduction to mindfulness ... my daughter has been suggesting I try this for a while!  Thanks Jayne!" - Paul W

Mindfulness workshops and courses

There may be ‘hot topics’ you are looking to address, for example an imminent major change or downsizing .. or perhaps Performance Review time is coming up and colleagues are struggling with the whole feedback issue?  To support colleagues through turbulent times, I can create an appropriate bespoke workshop or event, to equip them with tangible mindfulness tools and practical ways to apply them, so they can navigate what's here with more ease.

Examples of such interventions include:

  • Mindfulness and Sleep
  • Mindfulness and Change
  • Mindfulness for Leaders
  • Mindfulness and Giving / Receiving Feedback

And to embed mindfulness tools long-term, a workplace mindfulness course - weekly sessions for 8 consecutive weeks - is a great option.  Here's what one of the participants had to say ...

"The course has provided me with excellent tools for being able to deal with everyday stress as well as some more challenging times in my life. It has also allowed me to integrate mindfulness into my life in ways that I never thought were possible" - Harry M

I will work with you to define the best environmental and cultural fit for your organisation and for your colleagues - creating bespoke offerings, whilst always ensuring that the scientific integrity of the training is maintained.   Contact me today to explore what is possible for you, your team and your organisation!

And for something really different ...

... why not invite colleagues to step out of the office and into nature, to experience Forest Therapy

Immersing in nature is a unique and powerful way to build connectivity and engagement within a team - as well as developing mindfulness skills and benefitting physical, mental and social well-being.
