A PSYCHOLOGICALLY FIT AND HIGH PERFORMING WORKFORCE

The growing evidence around the importance of an individual’s mental health in the workplace, and the effect it can have on performance, demonstrates the need for organisations to invest in their staff from a psychological perspective.

Mindflex provides many solutions to organisations to support their staff from a psychological fitness perspective. We do this in a way beneficial to both individual and organisational goals.

These include providing individual coaching sessions (up to Executive level), workshops, psychological wellbeing strategies, and/or Psychological Support Consulting.

COACHING

WORKSHOPS

Workshops are vital for educating people on the importance of psychological health protection, and general psychological fitness in the workplace. They arm workers with a solid understanding of the different aspects of mental ill health and psychological fitness, meaning they are in a greater place to actively take responsibility for keeping themselves psychologically fit.

Our workshops are motivating, not just because they are engaging and meet an essential need, but also because they provide simple insights into how our mind and body can work brilliantly (and sometimes not so brilliantly!) together, allowing us to perform optimally each day.

Without understanding the ‘why’ (“why does my mind respond the way it does to life?” i.e. the science of the mind), people rarely stay motivated to make and maintain positive change. This is why Mindflex’s unique, educational approach to psychological health is one that ensures science is at the heart of all our workshops.

PSYCHOLOGICAL SERVICE CONSULTING

Our expertise allows us to consult across existing psychological support services as well as work with organisations to develop a bespoke Psychological Fitness program for their staff. This is based on the ‘core’ and ‘gold’ standards recommended in the ‘Thriving at Work’ independent review of mental health and employers which is a benchmark of best policy and practice around mental health in the workplace (Stevenson & Farmer 2017).

This ensures education across the psychological continuum, (including relevant pathways for those requiring psychological support within an organisation), as well as advising on correct governance and procedural considerations to ensure a robust framework for delivery.
