Have you ever sat at your desk, staring at your computer screen? You're at work, you're at your desk but you're not present. Your mind is distracted by the challenges you're going through, whether they be work, personal or a combination of the two.
If you're an SME (Small, Medium Sized Enterprise) , the impact of lost productivity and absence can hit you the hardest. To be proactive in helping your staff feel valued, nurtured and present at work, I can work with them to look at their current situation, challenges, aspirations etc. and create a compassionate, non-judgemental environment where they can take control, overcome their challenges and achieve their goals.
How I can help
Surgery style appointments. I commit to a day a week/2 weeks/monthly and set up an online calendar for staff to access and make appointments. We can discuss anything in their lives that may be causing stress, anxiety, depression or distraction. All conversations would be confidential with the staff member. Surgeries can be in your office, an external location or online via Zoom.
Support individuals on a case by case basis as referred by your HR department
Coaching approach. My approach blends coaching, mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
Structured approach. All sessions have a structure to them and a methodology.
Online collaboration area. I create a Google Drive folder for each client I work with to enable us to track progress and work together.
