A few words from some of our clients who have benefited from working with us!

My team and I can only be at our best if we are armed with the right information to ignite our own personal productivity for life & work. Sara presented the physiology & psychology to ignite personal health, wellbeing & productivity with great knowledge, credibility & humour. Every person in the room was energised!

We recently had a 3-series virtual Management Mental Health Training with our Principals. This was a great option because all of our Principals are in different locations across the US. Everyone found it to be highly informative and interactive. It was easy to ask questions and have a dialogue about the topics. We don’t think there would have been any difference had the training been onsite with all of us in the same room. The conversations we had with each other were very fluent and helped in gaining a good grasp on the material being discussed. We will keep this format for any other training we may have. Also helpful is the ability to record the webinars and refer back to the well-being portal to review for a period of time if needed. This training was very impactful for our Principal group, and the tools and techniques learned are being utilized during this current climate we find ourselves in. Highly recommend, and loved the fact that we were able to do this virtually.

We asked Sara to provide Resilience and Mental Health awareness training to our staff and managers in order to support them during a prolonged period of organisational change. Sara worked with us to develop a programme which was relevant to our staff and met their needs. Her professional and practical approach to facilitation allowed staff to explore a sensitive and complex issue in a safe environment. We received positive feedback on the sessions from staff and managers on Sara’s presentation style and understanding of the subject matter and the staff also felt she was able to answer a range of questions and support the discussions which arose during and after the sessions

It has been a long time since I arranged a course that has got overwhelming feedback from the management team. The Mental Health awareness course run by Sara had that effect on us. The training was engaging, fun, it made us reflect on our management of individuals with mental health issues and also reflect on the fact that we need to take care of ourselves too!
Ngoma Knight, HR Business Partner

Throughout my personal life and my career, I’ve been held back by low self-worth and feelings of inferiority. As far as I was concerned, this was just my personality and I had to get on with it. However, Sara’s training course fundamentally changed my mind-set, helping me to see past these issues, to see that I have the power to change my life for the better and that I can choose to be the best possible version of myself.

Pegasus Healthcare
I have completed a Mental Health Training for Managers (covering Mental Health; Trust, Anxiety, Depression, Addiction, imposter syndrome etc) course today delivered by Sara Maude Workplace Wellbeing Specialist The course highlighted that one our the greatest challenge as managers when talking about Mental Health is the fear of getting it wrong or making things worse. There is still so much stigma attached to Mental Health that raising awareness and educating managers in the workplace is critical.. for the well being of our colleagues (and ourselves). Talking about your feelings isn’t a sign of weakness. It’s part of taking charge of your wellbeing and doing what you can to stay healthy. Remember to look after yourself. Eat and Sleep well. Your brain needs nutrients to stay healthy and function well. If things are getting too much for you and you feel you can’t cope, ask for help. This course gives us the tools to have confident conversations around mental health and well-being. I would like to say Thank You to Sara for her passion, expertise and sense of humour delivering these sessions to us.

Sara ran 2 webinars for us around “Maintaining good mental health and wellbeing” these were very timely with all the uncertainty and change we are facing! Both sessions were really insightful and a helpful opportunity to take some time out and learn more about stress and the impact it has on the body and mind as well as giving some really practical tips on how we can take better care of ourselves. The opportunity for interaction was a real positive in allowing employees to share their own tips and experiences

S-RM Risk and Intelligence consultancy
Sara, the facilitator was outstanding, from just one brief conversation she had the ability to expertly analyse the team’s needs and develop a bespoke programme that was interesting and relevant. She was able to captivate and hold the audience all day even though there was a lot of material to cover. This is an intensive programme that provides excellent value for money.

Through Sara and Jill, I wanted to help my team thrive at work. My aim is for my team to improve their own understanding and give them tools and techniques to improve their personal resilience at work (and out). I am enthused by their energy and awareness of the commercial world and the impact negative stress has in the workplace and attending the event has helped the team to recognise how they think changes the way they feel at work.
Nikki Perry, HR Manager
Domestic & General
Both Sara and Jill are excellent speakers. The subject is fascinating and Sara and Jill are very energising. The exercises are brilliant and practical tools to take away. This has given me the insight into a topic I feel very passionate about (building emotional resilience for peak performance). Really looking forward to Sara and Jill speaking and facilitating workshops at Grace Eyres staff conference.
Alicia Goodchild, HR Manager
