Workplace Wellness Workshops

Workplace Wellness Workshops (WWW)

Show your team that you value their mental health and self care by having a skilled, empathetic and experienced professional connect with your team. Workshop sizes can vary from small to big groups and from in-person to virtual. Workshops have a psycho-educational format which means that relevant and helpful strategies and information are taught, while also creating a safe space for participants to share their thoughts.

 

While employees can access their extended benefits or EAP programs for extra support – the reality is that many don’t. And although periodic emails reminding staff to reach out for support, or encouraging them to practice self-care is helpful, it’s often just not enough. Bringing in a trained professional to connect with your team and offer them strategies they can start using right away is the best way to ensure that team morale and productivity remains high.

What are Wellness Workshops?

Wellness Workshops are a series of workshop presentations delivered to your employees in your workplace or virtually. Workshops formats vary from one hour workshops to all day team building. Evidence based information and practices are presented to promote a healthier lifestyle for employees.

 

Workshops can be geared towards the employers and employee’s specific needs or can be chosen from the following selection:

 

–  Stress Management: This workshop offers strategies for stress and time management by teaching participants how thoughts create feelings, reframing, self-soothing strategies (breathing and mindfulness) as well as dealing with uncertain times.

 

– Covid fatigue: This workshop is geared towards supporting participants in caring for their mental health and self care during the pandemic. We look at normalizing the feelings people have during this time and looking at important strategies that we need to put into place to ensure self care is in place, sleep hygiene is managed and other proven tools to improve function during this time. Signs and symptoms of burnout are also discussed.

 

– Returning to the Office: with plans to return to the office and hybrid schedules, employees are struggling to adjust. This workshop addresses these challenges while providing tools to cope, learning how to shift your mindset, incorporating physical movement and making intentional positive changes in their environment.       

– Communication Training – Communication is the first step towards developing teamwork and innovation. This workshop aids in providing participants with training needed to become an active listener and effective communicator. The participant will also learn how to use these new skills to improve team environments, build support, and foster creativity.

Last year was a very rough year for me and my family. We've been into a terrible car accident in the month of September and we don't have anybody and know somebody to ask for help to settle our issues. I personally went through ups and downs of a lot of problems even the level of stress gets so high. Good thing we meet Naushina, such a wonderful person who help as a lot to build up our confidence and motivated us to achieve our goals. If your looking for a counselor to help you with personal matters or family probem, I personally recommend you to call Burnaby One Oak counselling.

My wife and I are extremely grateful to the compassion and support Naushina offered us. She is truly talented at her craft and we would highly recommend her to anyone struggling with relationship issues in their life as well as the other parts of our life that are impacted due to this.

Naushina has been wonderful for my children and I. We see her on a regular basis for issues surrounding childhood anxiety and depression. Her compassion and caring make the kids feel at ease and able to talk with her. She has been a huge support for me in trying to help all of my children through their issues.

Through compassion and skill, Naushina helped motivate me to be my authentic self. I was living my life, knowing that something didn’t feel right, knowing that I needed to do something different...I just didn’t know what. I felt lost and confused and tried so many things before I decided to start some individual counselling for myself. I traveled, joined Zumba, did some yoga and went on beautiful hikes to feel closer to nature, but it wasn’t until I took the time to put in that final piece, working with a compassionate and skilled therapist, that I was able to truly turn my life around. I encourage anyone feeling this way to take the time, and invest this time in yourself.

Naushina was incredibly helpful to me after I developed an anxiety/panic disorder and depressive feelings, following a traumatic life event. She not only served as a great support system during our visits, but also gave me the tools I needed to better manage my situation on my own. Thanks to her guidance, I am better able to diffuse difficult situations and prevent them from escalating. Although our work together is not yet complete, I feel much better equipped to handle any challenges that may arise and therefore, highly recommend her to anyone in need of such assistance.

My son’s anxiety became so much more manageable. My 7 year old went from having difficulty going to school and sleeping through the night, to being able to function and manage his days. My son felt comfortable working with Naushina, who helped him understand what his anxiety felt like in his body and how he could cope throughout the day. I also learned how to better support him through these feelings. Thanks to Naushina, I feel like I have my son back.

I was able to move forward from a broken heart. My husband’s betrayal left me feeling like I could never be happy again, as though something was broken that could never be fixed. Through individual sessions and couples sessions, I was able to put myself back in the picture. Even though I didn’t think it was possible, my husband and I were able to move past this and heal our marriage. I didn’t think it was possible for my husband to talk to someone and open up the way he did. Today, I feel like I am stronger than ever.

I was able to reduce my worry and enjoy each day. Through individual counselling with Naushina I was able to explore how much my negative self-talk was impacting my day to day life. Naushina challenged my thinking and helped me shift my thinking to serve me better. I now feel more confident and relaxed.
