The Demand

There is a considerable demand for skilled, competent professionals who have the knowledge and expertise to help others manage their stress, build their resilience and enhance their well-being. Stress is the number one cause of absenteeism in business. Stress drives unhealthy behaviors and is itself a major contributing factor to the top six illnesses. Unmanaged stress is also a significant barrier to developing our personal and professional potential. Simply put - millions of people are experiencing a fraction of their potential because they live in their heads, mishandle their emotions and deny their bodies. You will be taught how to change this! On the positive side, increasing numbers of individuals are demanding help and support from professionals who are able to work with them holistically - in a way that attends to their mind, heart, emotions and body. Thousands of companies worldwide are also realizing that actively investing in the stress reduction, well-being and resilience of their employees is a win-win situation. It reduces health-related costs and boosts productivity and performance. Wellness, stress management and resilience training programs delivered by credible individuals are in considerable demand. You are about to step wholeheartedly into an industry and market that is growing fast.

Our training program is to help fill in the gaps in your knowledge and experience so that you can work effectively and holistically with your clients in order to meet this demand.
