Working with business

Exceptional coaching and training with a social impact

Support for Businesses

Our work raises awareness, develops management and people skills whilst reducing the stigma. We know that good mental health and a good place to work are interdependent and doing nothing costs.


The cost of poor mental health to employers before Covid-19 was £45 billion a year. That cost comes from sickness absence, reduced productivity and staff turnover. [Deloitte: Mental Health & Employers]


As the workplace evolves in response to economic pressures, it is important organisations invest in their greatest asset, developing the confidence and resilience of managers and staff to embrace the transition that lies ahead. We are here to help.

We also collaborated on their mentoring scheme using employees to mentor beneficiaries. It was a great success with learning for both mentors and mentees"   Chrissie Easom, HR Director Taylor Vinters
