What will our session on Thursday 11 September cover?

Realising Resilience

We were all born with bounce-back ability. And yet some days we can certainly feel less resilient than others. So, how can we have more resilience?

  • In this session we explore how resilience works for everyone - no matter what we are currently experiencing or have experienced
  • The source of our innate resilience
  • What gets in the way of resilience
  • What to do when we are struggling with a lot of stressful feelings
  • Real life stories and insights into resilience in dark times
  • An opportunity to have your own insight into resilience
  • A space for reflection and sharing

What will it not cover?

One size fits all tools, techniques or strategies.

The success of any organisation lies in the wellbeing of its people.

Whether you are part of a large organisation, a professional firm or run your own small business the health and success of your enterprise is highly dependent upon the mental and emotional health of the people involved. If you are regularly feeling stressed at work, it will have a detrimental (and measurable) impact on every aspect of your success, performance and productivity - not to mention your life experience.

We can show you how to prevent and eliminate stress at its source. And reap the game-changing benefits of uncovering wellbeing.

Our Wellbeing at Work Series is a collaboration between Being Lawyers and the Wisdom and Wellbeing Consultancy are offering an education designed to provide you with a strong foundation of wellbeing.

Join Lawyer and Executive Coach Chetna Bhatt Co-Founder of Being Lawyers and Leadership Wellbeing Coach Elizabeth Lovius Co-Founder of the Wisdom and Wellbeing Consultancy to learn about the game-changing innate wellbeing principles that will transform your understanding and experience of stress in the workplace.

We explore what mental and emotional stress is - how it works, where it comes from and how to prevent it no matter what you might be up against.

From May to October 2019, our Wellbeing at Work series comprises interactive talks, educating and sharing personal stories on a range of topics relating to how wellbeing works, including; stress, resilience, work-life balance, handling “difficult” colleagues and a fresh look at depression and anxiety.

What is the format?

You can drop-in, attend a few or all of the tasters – the sessions are designed to work both independently and build on each other.

We will also invite expert guest speakers from time to time to join us and will allow time for you to have questions answered.

Our approach

We know that every single person has innate mental health and wellbeing available to them at all times on the inside. While their experience of wellbeing may vary, wellbeing itself is a constant that can never be lost.

We don’t give advice, use techniques or tell people what to do – rather we educate and explore universal principles of how wellbeing works and how an understanding of these can help people to naturally access their mental health and resilience.

As a result of our approach people are able to have their own insights and find answers about their own situation – as it is personal insight or ‘a-ha’ moments that are the agent of real and sustainable change.

Places are limited.
