There’s plenty of evidence to suggest that mindfulness can have a significant and transformative effect on individuals and organisations including a reduction in absenteeism caused by stress, anxiety and depression, better concentration, focus and recall, in addition to improved problem-solving skills, communications and relationships – making for a happier, healthier workforce.
Mindfulness Merseyside deliver bespoke mindfulness programmes in the workplace, ranging from short 45 minute ‘taster’ sessions to longer workshops and complete courses.
There’s no yoga or anything like that and meditations are done seated on chairs not cross-legged on the floor. There’s plenty of opportunities for questions and answers throughout and participants are encouraged to share their experiences.
“I personally found the session informative and helpful. As a manager it’s highlighted the importance of looking after the mental wellbeing of our staff and I think it’s something that more workplaces should offer.” Sophie Hoban, HMRC
The programmes include materials to take away, summarising the session and outlining the meditations, for participants to practice afterwards. We can also offer advice on establishing workplace meditation groups to build on what was achieved during the session.
To date, we’ve delivered nearly fifty courses to over 800 participants, making us a leading provider of mindfulness training in the region. We’ve worked with various organisations from government bodies to public authorities, national charities and local businesses.
We’ll work with you and within your budget to ensure the best outcome for your staff or employees and your organisation.
