Focus Day Training

Supporting Home Workers

With more staff working from home than ever before, it is important to help their resilience and wellbeing. For some working from home can increase a sense of loneliness, anxiety and burnout. A recent study from Nuffield Health (June 2020) found that 80% of workers say their mental health has been impacted by working from home. Even with Lockdown restrictions easing, many people will still be working from home. All our sessions are 1 hour in length and all courses are 6 weeks in length. Building safety and relationships is key to all our sessions, encouraging participation and a sense of involvement.

Feedback

Online training with 'Education Training Collective' - Teesside, April 2020.
"I already feel like it’s had an impact on me – I slept better last night, and woke up feeling more positive this morning! I am going to try and incorporate the techniques and methods we went over into my daily routine as much as possible. I would definitely like to take part in further sessions that built on what we covered in our first one.

"Really good session. Made you think of different techniques to help with mindfulness and reminding you that you do need to take time out for  yourself."

"I think the session was excellent and gave us a good understanding of how Mindfulness can support not just at home, but also with work too. Jon did a fantastic job delivering the session and we all have definitely taken techniques away from it.
