“The world breaks everyone, then some become strong at the broken places.” ~Ernest Hemingway
It's really important to recognise when we need some extra support. It can also be scary and hard to admit.
I have worked with numerous clients over the years who have experienced issues with anxiety, depression and other mental health symptoms; self harm; trauma; and drug and alcohol issues.
We live in a culture where drinking, and sometimes drug taking, is accepted as a way to relax, de-stress, cope. But it can easily slip into something more, and instead of being a support it can start to cause you problems. You may see this in your relationships, or your health, with your employer or even the law
Walk & Talk Therapy
Sometimes sitting in an office is just not appealing. Contact me to talk about walking therapy, where we can do our talking as we take advantage of the beautiful tracks around Queenstown.
I can offer workshops or presentations to groups of professionals wanting to better support their staff, health professionals wishing to better identify or manage mental health and substance abuse issues, or groups of students needing to better understand the impact of substance abuse on them and those around them.
Alcohol and drug use by your staff impacts on their productivity, performance and health and safety.
Speak to me about advice that I can offer for
your managers to help them better recognise issues as they arise,
your general staff teams to support them to recognise what problem substance abuse looks like, and the consequences of this for them as individuals and you as a company
