People are more than just ‘resources’…and when they are treated as such, they give their all…

Most effective leaders recognise that an organisation is fundamentally a collection of dedicated individuals working together to achieve a purpose, and it makes perfect sense that caring for the wellbeing of those individuals is central to the health and success of that organisation.

The pressure of work, together with the effects of protracted postural stresses contribute to fatigued and tense employees. Proactively managing stress levels in the office setting results in efficient, smarter working and be better engaged employees.

At Heart & Soul, we work closely with organisations to deliver the wellbeing service that directly meets your needs.


Our ability to offer a variable blend of emotional (coaching & supervision), physical (massage and pampering) and spiritual (yoga & mindfulness meditation) wellbeing is unique and can be tailored and varied according to your evolving requirements.

This is a great stress reducing and productivity improving investment into the wellbeing of staff which has a direct impact on employee absence and attrition.  Providing access to regular talking and/or office-based massage and therapeutic treatments achieves measurable benefits for employees and the organisation alike.


Emotional

There are significant benefits to being able to talk confidentially with someone who is independent and qualified to listen and has experience and understanding of the need to function effectively in the workplace whilst managing the personal and professional demands.

When this is actively facilitated in a relaxed and convenient way, employees feel valued and embraced by the organisation and become more engaged and productive. Though we are qualified and registered therapists, this is not about offering therapy. Its simply about emotionally holding and checking in with people – either individually or in groups/teams – where the professional rules of confidentiality apply without the intensity or commitment of therapy.
