We are privileged to work with key workers, the UK National Health Service (NHS) Trusts and their Professional Support and Wellbeing services delivering face-to-face sessions, online masterclasses and wellbeing materials.
How do we work with doctors?
7 skills for health care professionals
Whether online or face-to-face, our high impact sessions focus on building stronger self-awareness of adaptability, empathy, critical thinking, integrity, optimism, being proactive and resilient. We work with doctors newly arrived in the UK, junior doctors in danger of burning out and doctors who are returning to work after a break from clinical practice.
What we do
These highly interactive live 90-minutes sessions focus on building adaptability and optimism during high uncertainty and change; resilience and being proactive to doctors arriving in the UK to practice.
Materials for resilience and wellbeing
We are proud to be supporting the East of England Healthcare Trust in providing complementary wellbeing materials and resilience resources to NHS workers on the front line during the COVID-19 crisis.
Working with small groups, we deliver highly experiential awareness-raising half-day and full-day programmes which include individual feedback and a copy of the book. Currently on hold until restrictions lift.
Our next workshop….
January – March 2021 – we were delighted to offer free online mindfulness sessions to NHS frontline workers during the global pandemic.
In summer 2021 we are delivering live online masterclasses to groups of doctors arriving in the UK to practice. These sessions focus on resilience, adaptability, being proactive and optimism and are strongly aligned to practical issues doctors face on starting their practice in the UK.
We work with several UK NHS Trusts and private medical practices.
What our clients say…
Junior doctor arriving from overseas
“I really valued being able to share common issues with my colleagues. The tips and ideas were easy to implement and make a huge difference to our daily wellbeing. These sessions should be run at all levels.”
Doctor returning to work after maternity leave
“I was feeling very nervous about returning to clinical practice and this workshop showed me that I need to focus much more on confidence boosting strategies, going out of my comfort zone and finding lots of opportunities to learn and grow. I now feel great about going back!”
Doctor, Accident and Emergency
“This kind of training is very high impact because we are constantly taking part in activities that raise awareness. I learned some very valuable strategies to take forward which will help me avoid burn-out.”
“Can't thank you enough for such valuable training. It was really personalised and I gained so much from this one day that I can carry forward in a practical and focused way. Thank you so so much!”
Our Success Stories
Health Education England
We were delighted to be asked in early 2020 to provide full-day sessions for groups of doctors returning to clinical practice after a break. The sessions focused on building adaptability to manage work expectations and fears, knowing how to be proactive and collaborative with others and using resilience to bounce back from setbacks, adversity and uncertainty. Each delegate received a personal feedback report, copy of the book and additional resources.
Mindfulness, resilience and empathy
Throughout 2018 and 2019 we delivered short awareness raising sessions to doctors newly arriving to practice in the UK as part of their induction processes with the GMC (General Medical Council) and Health Education England. These sessions were very well received and complemented sessions on simulation and human factors. This heralded the start of our work with the NHS.
Resilience for A&E doctors
We run one-day workshops to support building resilience in junior doctors working in A&E. These practical sessions focus on a number of awareness-raising exercises, opportunities for doctors to come together and share experiences and tips and ideas for doctors to add to their wellbeing and resilience “tool box”.
