Thankfully, this is changing. Organisations which invest in the health and wellbeing of their employees are investing in the resilience, motivation and creativity of their staff, which has a positive impact on the whole of the business.
It’s important to recognise that modern society and working demands can place a heavy burden of stress across all aspects of our lives. This means we are more susceptible to issues such as anxiety, depression and long-term illness. A wellbeing programme can not only improve the health and happiness of existing employees, you are more likely retain and attract top talent.
Your opportunity to lead from the front
We all know that actions speak louder than words. We can help you put a holistic wellness programme in place to improve the physical, mental and social wellbeing of your employees, which has the potential to send positive ripples through every part of their working and personal lives.
There is a great deal of evidence to show that getting out in nature can improve your mind, body and social wellness. During a forest therapy walk, employees will have a chance to step away from their busy lives and reconnect with themselves. The forest offers a safe space to experience a profound and healing walk. Through a series of guided invitations, they will awaken their senses and engage with nature in a new way. This will create a sense of calm and open awareness, leaving people feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and restored.
Forest therapy can uncover blocked emotions or hidden ambitions. As an experienced and ACC accredited coach, I can provide ongoing support to help people overcome challenges and reach their full potential.
