Powerful Workshops and Seminars For The Workplace


Getting people to share learning is powerful. My workshops and seminars use business psychology, coaching theory, psychotherapy and cutting edge positive psychology to help people get more out of their work.


We can deliver them on or in person. They can be tailored for an hour, half or full day. You can find many of our workshops and seminars below. We can also create bespoke sessions to reflect your needs and objectives. Please contact us or book in a session to discuss this. I have also included the main learnings in italics.


Coping with Anxiety at Work


It’s natural to be concerned about delivering good work and creating a good impression.  However, there may be moments when that anxiety can start to impede your performance. This seminar looks at practical ways to help you dial down any feelings of anxiousness or panic, including how to deal with panic attacks. We also discuss how to help those around you.

Decision Making Made Easier


In today’s fast paced world, we have so many small decisions to make. It’s no wonder we have little energy or thinking space left for the big, important decisions. This workshop looks at your own decision- making style. We will show you different ways of making decisions, and, at the same time, get out of the washing machine of “should I, shouldn’t I?” thinking.

You will understand others’ decision-making styles for better relationships and team dynamics, and go away with powerful decision-making techniques you can apply to any area of life.

Working As Part of a Team

How would your boss prefer you to communicate? Why does a certain person irritate you? How can you uplevel your communication style to work better alongside your colleagues?

Self-Discipline, Habits and Rituals


We all rely on self-discipline, habits, and rituals to get things done, but how often do you think about which one serves you best?

Handling Depression at Work


Depression can cause havoc with your performance at, and your enjoyment of work. It can leave you feeling isolated, lacking in motivation and has a severe physical impact on your health. Spotting signs of depression in yourself and others means that you can implement the self-help strategies covered in this workshop to help move you out of depression, or recognise when you need more professional help.

Time Management That Works For You


Good time management is more than just picking the right App or investing in a pretty journal. Knowing your personality type can help you understand whether you are likely to leave things to the last minute and what you can do about that. It can help you understand why some people find it difficult to get on with work even if they have set quiet time aside just for that very reason, or why you are struggling with staying motivated with the small details.

Becoming More Visible


Being visible is more important than ever. Sometimes, simply doing a job well isn’t enough. We need to have “a profile.” Some people love this opportunity to step into the spotlight. For others, it can feel like a step too far.

Being more visible can open up opportunities. It allows you to be taken more seriously, and create connections that will benefit you in your life and career. In this workshop you will conduct a reputation audit, understand what you can do to raise their profile without coming over as a show– off, and investigate your own blocks to stepping into the spotlight.

You will also find ways to raise your reputation that feel comfortable and authentic and have the template to create your own reputation plan.

This workshop looks at ways we can move out of our comfort zone in a controlled, strategic manner. We will uncover what and who can support us, and set up a framework to help us keep up the momentum.
