Working with clients of all ages who experienced stress, anxiety and depression, I found it such a sad and upsetting statistic that 1 in 3 adults will experience mental health issues at some point in their life and yet we generally wait for something to go wrong before we step in with care, to then reduce the symptoms that are being experienced
It was screaming at me that a vital step was missing and that was prevention, why wait for things to go wrong?
I decided that working initially with children was the key, I would teach them about their mind and body and little signals they got each day because if they understand there is less fear and they can then take steps to help themselves maintain a happy healthy life and avoid becoming a 1-3 statistic.
I founded Be Your Own Hero running workshops for parents and children, a really special time for families discovering more about each other and all learning ways to boost confidence, grow resilience, and calm the mind and body.
We became more aware as we worked with adults how this program could really support all ages and be very beneficial to the workplace. Sickness levels increasing and staff feeling no one really cared, I was hearing people felt tired about feeling everything was a tick box to be seen to be doing the right thing
I was a corporate manager and coach for over 30 years and involved in mental health in the workplace for much of that. I understood the challenges businesses face. This is why we now offer bespoke workshops, with content designed for each individual company or group to specifically meet their needs, the duration can be from 1 hour to a full day. Whatever you are looking to achieve we can run that for you.
One thing all our workshops have in common. You will never find a power-point unless that is what you ask for. We are engaging, interactive, and fun. Making changes for everyone. We have 3 steps in each workshop, Education, and understanding, teaching new skills, and self-help tools that can be used anywhere at any time and then a take-home toolbox so you become your own hero and can be responsible for yourself in so many more ways.
We have worked with companies such as Virgin Money, SKY, Lloyd's, Edinburgh & West Lothian Colleges, and many more, with outstanding feedback, which is available for companies on request.
We now have Be Your Own Hero Practitioners covering many areas of the UK, all of whom are Therapists, coaches, and have PVG and police background checks.
