If you feel like any of the below, then this is the page for you.
The above is what teachers told us during our self care and stress wellinar, (not just another webinar over here!). If you missed it, you can catch it here.
I am stressed, overwhelmed and under too much pressure are phrases we are hearing A LOT, not just from teachers but across many other workplaces too! And let’s talk about the greater challenges we may be experiencing in this post pandemic workplace, be that financial pressures or dealing with trauma or loss, this too needs attending to.
We also realise that telling ANYONE, especially your boss, HR or someone who might have an influence over your career might be stopping you from reaching out for that very help.
Here at the Talking Rooms we are keen to get in front of this stress before it impacts your general health / your relationships at home/work and YOUR own mental fitness.
You are human. Everything you are experiencing is human, and the world does indeed NEED you, but we need you in one piece at the end of all this.
That’s why we launched BYOB (like what we did there – we are full of puns and acronyms). What indeed is this BYOB you speak of?
Long story short:
- Monthly sessions with a trained Mental Health & Wellbeing professional, to BRING YOUR OWN BOTHER
- You refer yourself, we take care of you, your workplace pays, and we only report on stats – nothing personal, not even a name.
- Time all about YOU. Focussed on stress reduction and realising just how important you are
- Complete confidentiality
- An opportunity to talk openly, honestly and importantly be heard without judgment or #dontbottleitup
We have already had FANTASTIC success working with staff in education with this initiative, with people describing the service as” a lifeline,” and “I was stressed at the thought of taking an hour out of my week for me! I am a convert now and would really recommend BYOB, I have got so much out of it”.
