Businesses and Organisation Support
Many companies are now realising the benefits of helping staff to gain therapeutic support to promote positive mental health and well being. Staff can benefit from having an independent service being offered in their place of work.
I already visit a large company in Telford, on a regular basis, who afford me space in a public area, where, staff members can approach me on a personal basis for private support outside the workplace. I also, offer talks to staff groups (often during health promotion periods) about the benefits of the service I provide.
“Di Smart, Life Coach, has visited Schneider Electric, Telford site on a couple of occasions this year with a further visit planned later in the year. Di is a very approachable, sympathetic and pleasant person, just the right personality to advise and assist someone who is going through a rough patch or who needs a bit of a confidence boost. She is discreet. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.” (Liz Hamilton, PA)
I offer an individual service to companies who may want to offer self development support to their employees. This can be very supportive to HR departments already struggling to meet time deadlines and demands. It can also be very beneficial to the employee as it takes the situation out of the workplace.
This can be in the form of one to one coaching/mentoring support for personal issues to staff members or to staff members struggling with particular issues such as communication difficulties and confidence issues in the workplace
I have supported individuals to clarify their current circumstances and encouraged them to develop ideas and strategies that have led to action plans and resolve. I have also supported staff groups and bodies to identity their current position, clarify direction and formulate long and short term goal plans.
I also offer support to sole traders and small businesses wanting a professional and confidential listening ear in which to launch their ideas and future plans. They can feel comfortable in the knowledge that they can speak freely and without judgement in a safe and confidential space. “Di’s session was both liberating and reassuring, I was seen within 24 hours” (S.J)
