Personal Development courses in Anger/Stress/Confidence
Building and Assertiveness.
In an ever changing climate more people
experience levels of stress and anger
which they find intolerable. It can
impact on personal and professional
lives leading to lack of confidence
and assertiveness skills, inability
to make clear decisions and a reduced
motivation to enjoy life.
Mandy Gutsell has undergone extensive
training as an anger and stress management
consultant both with the British Association
of Anger Management and Centre for
Stress Management in London. Not feeling
in control of your anger and stress
can cause it to grow, intensify and
impact negatively on those around
us. Using a multi modal approach can
help the client intervene at the most
appropriate stage of the model. Clients
learn how to develop their coping
resources and how to moderate their
appraisal of difficult situations.
This may be offered on a corporate
basis to individual clients or a group.

Working Minds; Making Mental Health
Are you an employer who takes your
company and employees well being seriously?
From October 2004 it becomes a legal
requirement of employers with any
number of employees, under Disability
Discrimination Act (1995) to cover
2 main duties. 1) Duty to make reasonable
adjustments. 2) Duty not to treat
the person less favourably than others
unless this is justified. The DDA
defines disability as a 'physical
or mental impairment. This may include
common mental health such as depression
This training will give your company
a step by step plan to take an holistic
approach to well being. It will cover
what to ask and NOT ask employees
at the various stages of recruitment,
retention, maintaining staff in work,
engaging with someone in distress,
supporting when off sick and enabling
return to work.
You will have an opportunity to explore
extensive examples of good practise
and develop your own Mental Health
Policy specific to the company. However
the policies are unlikely to be effective
unless managers get the training and
confidence to deal with problems.

ì"To be or not to be -
That really is the question!"
It is designed for people in business
who recognise that getting the best
out of themselves and others is as
much about who you are 'being' as
what you are 'doing'.
This 2 day workshop proves 'who we
be' is every bit as important as 'what
we do'. Most management training focuses
on learning the right way to do things-
the right way to manage, the right
way to communicate and the right way
to lead. This training turns that
idea on its head by focusing on who
we are being - with the people we
manage, the people we communicate
with and the people we lead. In this
workshop you will rediscover the unique
qualities that make you so special
and valuable to your company/organisation
and everyone who knows you. And you
will have a lot of FUN.
Day One; We are Human Beings not Human
To be or not to be? What does it mean?
Being in your head vs being in your

what is 'made up'.

Teamwork and team building
Enneagram profiling- knowing me, knowing
Stress levels and 'being happier'
How you see things at work and outside
