Focus Day Training

Supporting staff

For those that are returning to work and those that are taking a hybrid approach to work, easing our way out of lock-down can be difficult and many of us will find this new way of working another change to deal with. Throughout lockdown, a study from Nuffield Health (June 2020) found that 80% of workers say their mental health was impacted by working from home.  Staff that are returning to the workplace will be facing additional pressures to adapt to, which can threaten their health and wellbeing. 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.
