Welcome to Stress Management Plus

Stress Management Plus is a training and coaching business, involved in helping individuals and businesses to make the most of themselves through managing pressure and preventing stress and promoting wellbeing and resilience. We support staff at the individual level and organisations at company level to maximise performance. As a consequence, we help organisations to cut costs by improving performance and reducing sick absence levels, and supporting individuals both personally and professionally. We work to make the individual, and by extension the organisation, more resilient, especially during times of change and uncertainty, and to support them to promote wellbeing, and identify and deal with the causes of stress at work.
Our professional and personal development coaching programme enables your business to benefit as an organisation and staff to benefit as individuals. 
The aim of the programme is to support the organisation in 
- Becoming a learning organisation (e.g. develop skills, be open to new ideas, learn from experience, share ideas, remain optimistic and resilient, continue to grow, be reflective)
- Developing and maintaining a culture of continuous development

Your staff will be better able to

Based in the Reading, Berkshire area but with a nationwide coverage, we are involved in supporting the organisation and the individual to maximise performance - and cut the costs associated with poor performance and sick absence - and encouraging, maintaining and promoting their wellbeing.
For the organisation, a lack of wellbeing can get in the way of the business performing as well as it should do. That’s not healthy for staff, or for the bottom line. 
For the business, apart from the legal (health and safety) requirements, it may be that
  • the organisation is going through a period of change, uncertainty, re-structure
  • you are concerned about the level of sick absence and the effect it's having on others' workloads and business performance, and the human and financial cost
  • staff aren't performing and its impacting on the quality of work being produced and consequently the bottom line 
  • you are concerned about the level of staff morale
There are of course many, many reasons why promoting wellbeing and preventing stress makes good sense. For example
  • promoting wellbeing will lead to a more engaged workforce, who will perform more effectively
  • when you have staff who tell you they're struggling, or it comes to light via another indicator (e.g. management information or as a result of a staff survey) 
  • if the business is going through change and uncertainty, and you want to ensure that staff can cope and can deal with the transition without compromising their wellbeing and company performance
For the individual
  • you may have something on your mind getting in the way of performance
  • as a manager you have a management issue you're struggling with
  • you/your organisation are having to deal with change and uncertainty
  • you're feeling under pressure and want to do what you can to prevent stress occurring
  • you're struggling with a relationship at work/home
  • you're experiencing conflict in the workplace
  • you'd like to learn how to be more assertive
