‘I recently attended a Stress Awareness session with The Stress Management Society at GE Hamble. I was stressed before I even went into the session, worrying about the work that wouldn’t be getting done while I was on yet another course! However, I can honestly say, I felt completely different by the end of the session, as the 3 hours I spent on that course were the 3 most valuable hours I’ve spent at work in a very long time. I’d even go as far as saying it was the most useful training course I’ve ever attended at work. The session was very engaging and allowed the group to explore what stress meant to each of us, how it affects us in positive and negative ways, how it affects other people and how we can spot the signs of stress in our colleagues and offer help. We were shown great stress-reducing techniques which I use and it has dramatically changed the way I approach my day-to-day routine and my attitude to work for the better. I would strongly recommend this course, especially for anyone who manages people.’
‘Allianz Insurance first began working with The Stress Management Society in 2009 where they provided invaluable training for our organisation. The sessions were extremely well constructed, interactive and knowledgeable. Due to this level of passion and knowledge around the topic of stress, health and wellbeing we have used their services several times and currently collaborate with The Stress Management Society on an array of our Health and Wellbeing Events.
Our experience with The Stress Management Society was great and we would most definitely recommend their services to other organisations.
They made the course thoroughly enjoyable and are obviously experts in the field of stress and provide excellent and relaxed presenters.’
‘Thank you very much for putting together and running an excellent session, especially at such short notice. Initial feedback has been very positive. I have already seen a few people putting in to practice some of the techniques you showed us when the computer system crashed first thing this morning!’
‘We were very impressed with the energetic and professional delivery of this seminar, it was refreshing to have content delivered with passion and from memory without the need for a presentation. The session was complimented by a comprehensive handbook which has proved to be a useful guide to all those who attended. We would not hesitate to recommend The Stress Management Society to other companies.’
‘I have had a truly positive experience working with the Stress Management Society. Our carers have very stressful lives and learning how to recognise and cope with stress has been extremely important to them. The whole process from the pre-planning of the session to the training day was very smooth, professionally handled and very easy to work with. Thank you again for such a positive and interesting day!’
‘Thank you so much for coming to see us at the NHF HR Forum in Cambridge.
The presentation was absolutely brilliant and I would say one of the best presentations we have ever had. It was informative and extremely interesting and definitely engaged everyone attending. So much so, I think we will all have taken something positive away with us today to use in our organisations.
Thank you also for preparing and issuing the superb hand-outs, which are really helpful.’
‘I just want to say a big ‘Thank You’ for a brilliant seminar on Stress and Health and Safety. I’ve never seen our students so engaged with the subject and its presenter. A record number of students turned out and they were certainly not disappointed.
Once again, many thanks indeed for an informative, educative and inspiring seminar. I look forward to future collaborations.
‘The feedback we have received has been excellent. We chose The Stress Management Society because they are a well recognised and have a fantastic reputation.
Their approach is different from the norm and much more personal and geared around the delegates needs rather than a set programe with hundreds of PowerPoint slides.
I can honestly tell you that it is cost effective because delegates do walk away with skills and techniques to manage stress more efficiently.’
‘I would unreservedly recommend that consideration is given to other establishments and other businesses invest in these very worthwhile activities.
Despite some initial trepidation and negativity, the sessions were universally acclaimed by those that attended. Indeed many of the most negative were some of the most enthusiastic afterwards.’
‘The training that The Stress Management Society provided was engaging, inclusive and relevant to our organisation and this was reflected in the feedback from all of our staff being incredibly positive. Managers in particular reported that they felt that they had a far greater understanding of the topic and felt much better equipped to deal with it in their teams.
Our experience with The Stress Management Society was excellent and we would recommend them to any other business who are looking to tackle stress or to carry out a similar project within their organisations.’
‘The training provided was extremely useful, it was well tailored for the audience and their needs and very interactive and relevant. Despite the short time frame a lot was covered and it was good value for money! There was a lot of energy and preparation put into the workshop and this was reflected in the positive feedback from the service users. We would be very happy to work with them in the future.’
‘The Stress Management Society carried out a Business Stress Risk Review for us in 2013. Their service is impeccable. They are clearly knowledgeable, super efficient and they make all possible efforts to provide a top customer service. We were absolutely delighted with their service and would highly recommend them.’
‘Like many companies during this difficult economic climate we are asking for greater productivity and efficiency from our employees. We realised that this was resulting in increased pressure and stress at work and beginning to show itself through increased sickness absence and difficulties for some in maintaining a healthy work/homelife balance.
We contacted The Stress Management Society and were immediately impressed with their knowledge about the impact of stress and their passion about encouraging organisations to think about solutions for dealing with it.
During November 2012 all of our employees attended either half day or full day workshops to raise awareness of stress, provide tactics and tips for dealing with it; and ultimately how each employee can excel whilst still being under pressure.
We have received positive feedback from the majority of participants who felt that the sessions were relevant, enjoyable and time well spent away from their desks. The stress audit completed prior to the workshops provided some background information and in particular helped the management team have a better understanding of specific issues related to stress. Following on, the workshops have provided an opportunity to look at other ideas to ensure we continue to put the wellbeing of our staff as a priority.’
‘The Stress Management Society delivered a great and very informative training session for Crisis at Christmas senior volunteers. They were very professional with consulting us in regards to the desired content of their presentation and delivered a bespoke and tailored session to the needs of our volunteers and the project. Martials and handouts they provided us with will invariably ensure the session is easy to rehearse and the knowledge can be easily revisited by all participants but also those who were unable to attend.’
