Your Professional Mind Matters!

Strategies for professional resilience.

I am

The benefits of investing in your workforce’s mental and emotional wellbeing pays forward exponentially. Not just in terms of reduced absenteeism or the improved company ‘vibe’ but also through increased commitment and productivity. And consciously – you make a direct contribution to a happier, healthier society filled with people making better decisions about everything!

Whether you are part of an organisation or working solo, your professional mind matters. Your mental, emotional, and behavioural stability is fundamentally vital to ALL systems in which you belong to at work, home, social, and leisure.

PRIORITIES

We all know of organisations that prioritise financial results over human wellbeing, and the negative mental impacts of working within such systems.

Becoming aware of your part to play in any system can bring a powerful shift in perspectives. You are a complex being with many automated thoughts and feelings that have driven familiar behaviours for years.  Do you feel the dissonance?  You want to change something?  Then it’s time to re-evaluate which thoughts, feelings, and behaviours you want to take forward in life and which ones you’ve now outgrown.  And beyond your ideas of a desirable brave new world, you will need to cultivate new skills to shed aspects of the outdated you, modifiable strategies to learn how to navigate the new you, and self-motivation to maintain momentum.

One of our ‘off the shelf’ programs is called Changing the P in CPD it focuses on continual personal development for professional gain. 10 years ago, employers were slow to invest in workshops like this, but thankfully awareness and appreciation for the human capital is shifting fast.

Whether you are an employee or business owner, an HR decision maker or entrepreneur, let us help you work well:

Susan Latimer | Well Work Coaching

Kay has a treasure chest of techniques to draw from depending on what you need, whether it’s a very structured approach or the ability to work with your needs moment by moment she does so with the lightest of touches. Whilst working with Kay I’ve gained clarity, had revelations, de-stressed, gained awareness of patterns of negative behaviour, cried ‘til I laughed, laughed ‘til I cried and best of all gained peace of mind and hope for the future- and all in 4 sessions!!

On a personal level, I believe Kay can help you achieve your goals and leave behind the things that belong in the past. Professionally, my background is in working in Sales and Marketing at a senior level and given the current economic climate where businesses are searching for the key component to make a difference, I am positive that Kay Cooke is that component. Established business models are barely maintaining the viability of some organisations; add a twist of Kay, a slice of her magic and a splash of her enthusiasm for a refreshing change!”

Patrick Keady | Voice Power for NLP Practitioners

When we first met, I was impressed with Kay’s authenticity. She is a wonderful person and innovative. Highly recommended.

Laura Spicer | NLP Consultant and Voice Trainer

Kay did all the work behind me delivering a Voice Power for NLP Practitioners course in Northumberland UK. She did an amazing job! Her PR was second to none, she found a wonderful venue, filled the room with lovely people and made absolutely sure that I, as the trainer, and all the participants had the best experience of the whole thing. Kay is a fabulous person, creative, responsive and an excellent communicator. I can definitely recommend her to you

Bev | University of East London| 3-Step Resilience

Kay was very clear in her resilience training, very knowledgeable, she does fun learning which was enjoyable.

Student Services trainee | University of East London| Resilience

Fun, engaging, informative, I especially liked finding out how our beliefs and behaviours can either prevent or achieve results, depending on both our internal and external dialogue.

Ann Cooper | Well Work Coaching

I rang Kay in a state of hysteria when I felt crushed and, on a mobile phone, from a coffee shop in London, she talked me through a technique that enabled be to find instant calm and so I began to explore new solutions.

Delegate | University of East London| Resilience

I found it interesting how focusing on the negative is not a productive strategy, and how being flexible yet firm yields the best results.

Messiah Odinma | University of East London | 5-Step Resilience

I found it very motivating, it reminded me of the need to remain resilient. This is not only for my work life, but also for my personal life.

Billy Isaac | University of East London| 5-Step Resilience

5-Step Resilience is the most interesting course I’ve been on (and I’ve been on a few!).

C.C. | University of East London| Resilience

Motivational use of metaphors and real-life examples. Also, the practical exercises and use of visual aids (toys etc – they work for adults too!).

J.I. | University of East London| 5-Step Resilience

Different, interesting, exciting use of words, voice and setting goals. Very interesting topic and very excited to now use some of what I learnt.

Master of Social Work yr. 2 student | Durham University | Building Resilience

I loved it and as usual, the trainer was very engaging.  I thought the session was perfectly pitched and well-timed at this stage in the course, when many of us are feeling stressed.  I thought that it provided some good strategies, which we can build on going forward into our social work careers.  Please keep this on the timetable for next year’s students. It also made me very interested in learning more about NLP going forward.  I think that it was very useful for our well- being in difficult situations, may be more useful at the start of second year placement.

Master of Social Work yr. 2 student | Durham University | Building Resilience

I thought the session was well timed in terms of the fact that some of us feel that the course is quite intense at the moment with placements ending and dissertation etc and this workshop helped us to consider ways to reduce feelings of stress etc.

Master of Social Work student | Durham University | Introduction to NLP

thought today’s session was very informative and it was very refreshing to learn a totally different approach from a non-social work perspective. Everyone in the class joined in on the discussion and seemed to really engage. It helped that Kay was fabulous and is clearly passionate about what she does!

From a personal aspect, NLP changed my dad’s life when he was at his lowest, so I was very eager to learn more about what picked him up. Kay shared that she too went into it for personal reasons and gained a career from it. I think the style and positivity of the approach are something which would really benefit the social work profession. I was very sad to hear that the sessions will not take place in the future and truly feel that future students are being deprived of a key aspect of their learning! Thank you for including the session as part of our learning.
