About Us

We promote and contribute to the European Union’s Third Health Programme (2014-2020) to:

  1. “Promote health, prevent disease and foster healthy lifestyles through ‘health in all policies”.
  2. “Contribute to innovative, efficient and sustainable health systems”.

We do this by taking up the EU call “for investing in people’s health” and “for spending smarter but not necessarily more in sustainable health systems”, with  the purpose of creating healthier workplaces and better quality of life for all.

We advise, support, inform, educate and train management and staff in the prevention, reduction and management of stress related illness and psychological risks by providing evidence based stress education programmes, stress management workshops, stress coaching, mediation and consultation in the workplace.

We have vast experience in our specialised areas. We strive to provide tailor-made complete packages to support and improve not only the physical and psychological health of all employees and employers but also the financial health of our workplaces.  We inform, educate and train in corporate and private locations; in group and one-on-one sessions. 

  • Our education programmes, stress management training and workshops are for everyone.
  • We understand that everyone deserves privacy and confidentiality.
  • We adhere to all privacy laws and regulations.
  • We value our clients and work very closely with them, we put a lot of time and effort into gaining the trust of all our clients.
  • We do the research on what works and what doesn’t work and constantly update and adjust our health programmes so that we can deliver the best evidence based health solutions for all our clients.
  • We are always willing to help, advise and support you. 

Our Team Leader : Joan Maycock – MSc Health Psychologist,  BSc Communication & Psychology, Researcher, Trainer, Mediator, Consultant and Stress Education Programme Developer. 

Joan is an experienced coach, mediator, counsellor and health psychologist; she writes, develops and presents stress education programmes, stress management workshops and stress coaching  programmes. She has worked with several organisations; mediation groups, the homeless, victim support, suicide prevention and with school children with behavioural problems. Her toolbox is large, containing a variety of methods, models and techniques such as Counselling, Coaching, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Stress Audits, Thinking Styles, General, Clinical and Health Psychology, Transactional Analyse, Rational Emotive Therapy, Stress Management & Education, Mediation Techniques, Mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

Her focus is now on writing and developing evidence based interactive Stress Education Programmes for the workplace. These programmes are designed to get everyone talking about mental health in the workplace and thinking about how to reduce, prevent and manage stress related illness, psychosocial risks, anxiety and depression in the workplace. Results are important, so research methods to test the efficacy of all her health programmes are being developed.

Joan is passionate about informing, educating and training directors, managers and staff on how to recognise individual stressors, be aware of physical and emotional signs of stressors, reduce psychosocial risks and cope better to improve mental and physical health in the workplace.
