My purpose and passion is to make mental wellness the new normal in organizations, and empower stressed professionals to take charge of their lives and feel better at work.
 

Counseling & coaching are tremendously helpful when we face complicated situations that we are not able to solve alone, nobody is totally avoid of such experiences.

MENTAL WELLNESS

Work is the the place where most of us spend the majority our waking hours, and it has a huge impact on our mental and physical state. Neuroscience has provided plenty of insights into the importance of trust, respect and psychological safety in workplace well-being and performance. In order to feel psychologically safe and to perform optimally, people needs more than great benefits, cool offices, fitness programs and mindfulness exercises. Our minds and our bodies are interlinked – as are our professional and personal lives – and in stressful situations our biological coding overrides our cognitive function whether we are aware of it or not – and mostly we are not.

Mental wellness goes way beyond mental health. It is a conscious choice and an active process that encompasses mental, physical and spiritual well-being. Mental wellness brings us balance and grit, increases curiosity and creativity, and we are better equipped for life’s inevitable highs and lows.

CURRENT WORKPLACE REALITY

Our modern work life puts an extraordinary strain on people’s mental health and general well-being. Work related stress is the single most important source of stress in the current world.  More than half of all employees will experience mental, emotional or behavioral problems at work in their lifetime, and one quarter is at the risk of developing severe mental health disorders. Mental health is the main cause of work related disability in many countries and the World Health Organization predicts that mental health is going to be the number one ailment – larger than cardiovascular diseases –  in the world by 2030.

Nine out of ten persons are afraid of telling their organization what is really going on with them and most organizations do not have appropriate systems in place to support mental wellness at work. This is costly, creates a lot of suffering, and yetit could mostly be prevented
