Your Workplace Wellbeing Specialists

At The Mind Solution, our workplace wellbeing specialists bring expert knowledge of Human Resources and Psychotherapy together to create a business world of healthy, happy and resilient people.

Or, put simply: We want your people to thrive as much as you do!

Why? After 12 years working at senior level in HR for large organisations and the public sector, we know how important a strong and healthy workforce is for the bottom line performance – and how difficult it can be to achieve.

And we found the solution to this in our work as therapists: During our 1-to-1 sessions with thousands of individuals, we have seen what amazing results people achieve when you give them the knowledge, understanding and techniques to take care of themselves.

So we decided it’s time to bring this knowledge into the workplace to help both employees and businesses be healthier and more productive. And so The Mind Solution was born.

Since then, we have been working with small to large organisations from all over the world and all sectors, helping improve staff retention, mental health, presenteeism and performance. And we’re loving every minute of it.

Knowledge and Consistency

As Psychotherapists we know that in order to effect change, you first need the understanding of the mind and body and how we can make them work for us and our mental wellbeing.

And our work in HR has shown us that you need consistency through ongoing support and training, for both managers and employees, to absorb the knowledge and apply it, to create lasting transformation of behaviours and mental health.

That’s why, as workplace wellbeing specialists, our management mental health training, employee wellbeing portal and interactive webinars always follow two key principles:

Knowledge and Consistency.
