Why engage a Corporate Therapist

Research by PwC found that good psychological safety helps encourage flexible thinking and intrapreneurship among workforces.

In a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) business environment, organisations inevitably look for opportunities to optimise business value, reputation and effectiveness of their workforce.

Organisational focus on enhancing employee mental wellbeing has great potential in increasing employee engagement and contributes positively to organisational effectiveness; however this psychological capital of the workforce, is often under-capitalised.

A framework developed by the National Workforce Skills Development Unit identifies Psychological Safety as one of five interconnected pillars for creating a healthy, thriving, forward thinking and productive workplace.

Poor psychological safety can have huge cost implications to the bottom line.

Research proves that a focus on well-being isn’t a soft skill - It’s a core business skill needed to sustain high performance in and outside of work.

It helps sustain and maximise energy, so employees are at their personal and professional best self. By prioritising well-being was shown to improve collective ability to thrive in a fast paced environment.

Although many people spend long hours at work, they also have a life outside of it. That life is likely to include personal challenges, adverse events, and periods of reduced mental health and wellbeing.

Each individual’s life circumstances will impact them at work - and will likely have ripple effects across teams and departments.

A corporate therapist works with individuals to reach a state of optimal wellbeing where they can better access their full potential in all spheres of life - including the workplace.

Engaging a therapist is the mark of an emotionally-intelligent and principle-led organisation.

It is becoming increasingly common in organisations that are committed to reducing the stigma around mental health, and where leadership acknowledge that they have a responsibility to the people they employ.

Your employees’ psychological welfare can have a detrimental effect on your business so the benefit is to both the individual and the business as a whole.

Never has it been more important to support the mental and health of your employees. With remote working now being commonplace it is imperative that mental wellbeing is taken seriously and made a priority.

Cut the cost of employee illness and absenteeism

Absenteeism and low mood in the workplace do not show up on your business’s balance sheet, but mental health is a huge hidden cost.

For individuals and organisations to grow and prosper, these underlying problems must be addressed.

Staff are sometimes reluctant to confide in their employer, even when their employer is very supportive.

And, even if they do seek help from management, mental wellbeing is a complex and delicate area that they are not necessarily equipped to deal with.

Preventing mental health issues leading to stress and a demotivated workforce requires specialist confidential psychotherapy.

Leadership Teams

Many high-achieving and high-profile people already employ coaches and personal trainers to support their life and work goals.

Sarah however, uses neuropsychology and capitalises on neuroplasticity, which is the brain's ability to rewire itself to achieve peak brain performance.

This happens by creating new neural pathways that allow her client to respond differently to any given situation, in particular high pressure environments.

This regulates their emotions, which in turn optimises brain function to operate more effectively.

Whether the desired outcome is to build confidence, remove ‘Imposter Syndrome’, create more self-belief, dissolve anxiety or anger, or just an improve overall sense of clarity and calm.

At every point the results can be felt instantly. Tangible differences are immediately obvious for the client and continue to show through into daily lives.

Previous clients testify to the impact not only on their performance, but also on the bottom line.

The Process

A corporate therapy session is similar to a private session.

Sarah partners with organisations on a temporary or on-going basis, working in-house at a frequency that suits the need.

Sessions can take place on-site, or at Sarah's private consulting rooms in Warwick or Central London.

Working with organisations who want to use neuropsychology to improve optimal human functioning to build a happier, healthier, more innovative and more productive business.

A Corporate Psychotherapist (or performance coach as some organisations like to position it with their teams) can have a profound impact.

An in-house therapist/ performance coach is there to keep the brilliant and ambitious individuals functioning at peak power.

Happiness at work shouldn’t be a luxury, it’s a truly competitive advantage. Research shows that positively-wired brains can boost productivity by up to 31%, and are three times more creative than negatively wired ones.

Talented people can only do their best when they feel their best.
