10am Stress Workshop Overview with Holly Wincote - Stress Management Consultant (DipSMC, DipNLP, DipH)
Holly provides workshops throughout the U.K., for organisations who are keen to maximise their employees potential by tackling stress head-on. They are ideal for anyone, whether it be people who are currently experiencing stress, or just as importantly for people to be prepared for and combat stress in the future.
As a qualified Stress Management Consultant, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Practioner and Clinical Hypnotherapist, Holly offers a unique and realistic approach to tackling stress, which combines NLP techniques, relaxation, visualisation and engaging tasks. Her workshop enables individuals to identify the causes and effects of their own stress and then deal with problem situations differently, so they remain calm and stress-free. Delegates are also shown how to recognise stress in others and help prevent ‘stress-escalation’ and she provides several invaluable and proven tools to use after the workshop on an ongoing basis.
Why the need to tackle stress?
• All employers have a legal responsibility under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 to ensure the health, safety and welfare at work of their employees. This includes minimising the risk of stress-related illness or injury to employees. Recent statistics show that more than 11 million working days were lost through work related stress in the UK in one year alone.
• Work-related stress has adverse effects for businesses in terms of employee performance and productivity, employee commitment to work, accidents caused by human error, organisation image and reputation, customer satisfaction and potential litigation.
• Prolonged periods of stress, including work-related stress, have an adverse effect on health - physical effects include heart disease, back pain, headaches, gastrointestinal disturbances, various minor illnesses; psychological effects include anxiety and depression, loss of concentration and poor decision making.
• Many people are unaware or don't admit they are experiencing stress at work and therefore employee absences due to stress-related illnesses are not always reported accurately.
