I Work With Individuals, Groups and on Corporate Health & Wellbeing Programs.
Everyone is on a different journey to each other and everyone is at a different stage on that journey. For those who need it we can provide 1 to 1 support.
Not everyone wants 1 to 1 coaching and prefer to access the program at their own pace. Support is always on offer via optional weekly group sessions.
As much as we blame the Government for poor Mental Health provision we believe that Business can play a vital role in reducing some of the challenges.
Depression is a low mood that lasts for a long time, and affects your everyday life. In its mildest form, depression can mean just being in low spirits. It doesn’t stop you leading your normal life but makes everything harder to do and seem less worthwhile. At its most severe, depression can be life-threatening because it can make you feel suicidal. We can help.
Suicide is the act of intentionally taking your own life. Suicidal feelings can range from being preoccupied by abstract thoughts about ending your life, or feeling that people would be better off without you, to thinking about methods of suicide, or making clear plans to take your own life. If you are feeling suicidal, you might be scared or confused by these feelings. But you are not alone. Many people think about suicide at some point in their lifetime. We can help.
Someone to Talk To
Sometimes it’s hard to talk to family and friends and you just need that one person who takes the time to listen. We can help.
Despite what people might think, no-one likes conflict, it can cause anxiety amongst other issues, which is why many of us shy away from it and do not get it resolved. We can help.
Meditation is a practice where an individual uses a technique – such as mindfulness, or focusing their mind on a particular object, thought or activity – to train attention and awareness, and achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm and stable state. We can help.
Anxiety is what we feel when we are worried, tense or afraid – particularly about things that are about to happen, or which we think could happen in the future. Anxiety is a natural human response when we perceive that we are under threat. It can be experienced through our thoughts, feelings and physical sensations. We can help.
Let’s not sugar coat this, you tried to end your own life but survived, now close friends, family and maybe work colleagues all know your most dark thoughts and also actions. You may also not be getting the help you need from anywhere. We can help.
Yes there is a link between what you eat and drink and your Mental Health, the current market place is very crowded with what to do or not to do. We can help.
Confidence is everything and you need to protect it at all times, many people struggle with it and this is normal as the brain is designed to protect us and keep us away from new things as the unknown is always perceived as dangerous, to have confidence is tricky. We can help.
We think that the mind and body are separate. But what you do with your body can have a powerful effect on your mental wellbeing. Mental wellbeing means feeling good – both about yourself and about the world around you. It means being able to get on with life in the way you want. Evidence shows there’s a link between being physically active and good mental wellbeing. Being active doesn’t mean you need to spend hours in the gym, if that doesn’t appeal to you. Find physical activities you enjoy and think about how to fit more of them into your daily life. We can help.
If you have been abused, or fear you have, it can be hard to take the first step in seeking help – especially if you have tried to talk about the issue to friends, family or professionals and have not had a response that helped you. We can help.
Isolation & Loneliness
Although most people need some kind of social contact to maintain good mental health, everyone has different social needs. You may be someone who is content with a few close friends, or you may need a large group of varied acquaintances to feel satisfied. We can help.
Often overlooked but often a huge impact on people and their Mental Health, our relationships and experiences with those around us shape our beliefs and values. It is not always easy to talk to those around us about such things. We can help.
Addiction is often linked to mental health problems. If you have an addiction problem it may have started as a way to cope with feelings that you felt unable to deal with in any other way. We can help.
A mindset may be so firmly established that it creates a powerful incentive within these people or groups to continue to adopt or accept prior behaviors, choices, or tools. Mindset is key to everyday living and success, it is something which you continually work at. We can help.
Every Journey Begins With 1 Step
I have been through the entire Mental Health system in the UK, for me it was not working, at any stage, on any level, on any department, on any procedure, on any policy. That was when I took things into my own hands, researched, learnt, re-trained and put together my own program. I then wanted to help others, I was fortunate to be able to get out and had the support to do this, we now have a tribe which can support others who are also looking for a new option, an available option, an option which has been working for over 100 other Heroes in the making.
For me in a moment of clarity I knew that what was being told to me and what I had been waiting for just was not working. For me, if it is not working then you need to change something. No more windowless rooms, no more experts who had not lived it, no more waiting lists, no more system which does not work for those in need.
Hero Transformations was born and is thriving.
