Blossom at work

Companies that recognise the importance of employee wellbeing develop confident, motivated and focused staff who perform in a way that benefits the business.

Improving employee resilience and mental health can reduce absence, change behaviour and improve wellbeing. Enabling staff to have a better experience at work, home, and in life benefits everyone.

When staff are engaged and performing to their potential, the company gets the best from them, and the business profits.

Why wellbeing matters

Have you noticed your company’s productivity falling? Do you spend your time juggling last minute absences, reorganising workloads and adjusting working arrangements? Is it causing extra work for others? Are you noticing the rest of your team feeling resentful and dissatisfied?

Engaged staff are better for business. When staff are flourishing at work, they tend to have a better work life balance, feel happier, find it easier to focus on work and be more productive.

Staff vitality is vital for business

When staff feel insecure, stressed and anxious, it affects customers and ultimately the bottom line. Customers become less satisfied with the service they receive, as staff focus on what is going on inside their heads, rather than customers’ needs.

When employees mental health is suffering, it becomes increasingly hard for them to put their energy into work. There’s then a knock on effect on their personal life, putting pressure on the relationships that help them to cope.

Over time, it gets more difficult for them to switch off from anxiety and manage their work. They’ll spend more and more time away from their desk, as they struggle to cope with workloads and their own thoughts and feelings. Other members of the team are often left having to deal with the side effects of colleagues’ stress, anxiety and depression, often snowballing into stress and anxiety themselves.

Everyone suffers

It costs the individual their mental health and wellbeing. It costs the company productivity and time and energy to manage. Line managers can become stressed and anxious themselves as they try to handle their staff’s mental health.

One person’s stress and anxiety can snowball, affecting members of their team, their manager and the senior management team. Add into this HR time and it all adds up to a drain on resources.


Creating a resilient workplace

Blossom at work workshops focus on giving staff practical self help strategies. A resilient workplace creates engagement, job satisfaction and improved productivity. When staff develop resilience, they are able to handle the everyday work-related stresses of full workloads, demanding customers and managers. They find it easier to achieve challenging tasks, communicate effectively and be creative.

As each person becomes more resilient and learns to cope better, it impacts business performance. As employees feel more satisfied, they are more focused, have more purpose and connection with clients, colleagues and managers.

Blossom at work provides easy to learn, engaging and practical techniques to help meet the needs of the workplace. By learning to understand and recognise the signs of stress and anxiety in themselves and others, employees are enabled to take skillful action.

About me

I’m Celia, I specialise in working with companies with a high level of staff absence and underperformance. Companies are often unaware this is caused by high levels of stress and anxiety. I work with businesses to develop more resilient workplaces and help their staff to thrive.

I have over 20 years experience of helping people to overcome problems, improve wellbeing and take control of their lives.

I love helping employees to have a better work and life experience. I am lit up by supporting people to access their inner resources and develop practical skills to improve their mental health and wellbeing.

My workshops empower staff to implement strategies to solve their problems and develop creative solutions for themselves. These practical changes make a real difference to themselves, their colleagues and the workplace.

Employee wellbeing and resilience courses

Your company can contribute to staff wellbeing by equipping your staff to help themselves.

I use a range of techniques tailored to the needs of your workplace. Employees learn practical tools they can use at home and work.

The workshops promote understanding and inclusion in the workplace.

Staff improve their ability to cope and learn how to put in place their own strategies to improve mental health, resilience and wellbeing.

More resilient staff means companies are able to thrive under pressure and embrace challenges and change.

Sessions are relaxed and encourage staff to take on board new techniques, have fun and make simple and lasting changes.

" Initially I was curious to understand more regarding what Celia meant by “wellbeing”. It was very informative and a great opportunity to be in a collective where everybody in some measure could be anxious and afraid. Celia went over certain exercises and ways of dealing with these feelings. It was very useful and would be great if it was held annually or regularly to remind ourselves of our own wellbeing."

“We wanted to do something to help staff manage anxiety levels during the Covid 19 lockdown. Celia worked with us to develop a workshop which suited our needs – appealing both to those who were long term sufferers of anxiety as well as those experiencing it for the first time or wanting to help a colleague or family member. Celia provided exactly what we were looking for - lots of practical advice and exercises and a supportive and relaxed forum for 150 of our staff. We were delighted with the positive feedback we received back from our staff about the event. They really appreciated the workshop, Celia's approach and informal style. As an organisation we were delighted to be able to offer our staff support in this way. It has helped our staff to stay focused and motivated during the long months of working from home.”

“I would like to add my sincere thanks to you for delivering today’s workshop. There was clearly an appetite for this and all the positive feedback shows it was truly appreciated. Our staff found the session very engaging with many people commenting how useful it was not to feel alone with their feelings. Participants commented they found particularly useful ‘knowing we’re not alone’, ’the breathing and grounding exercises’, ‘doing this as a group’.”
