Work-related stress

Mental health problems are on the rise, with stress topping the list of reasons for long-term sickness absence.

  • Better utilise your cognivie resources better

  • Build a more positive work environment through shared values and mindfulness-skills

Mindfulness Malta offers group courses and individual coaching to companies of any size. The courses will be tailored to suit your company's needs.

Examples of services:

Introductory talk: Get to know what mindfulness is all about and how it can help your workplace. Typically 30 minutes to 1 hour.

In-house training: With this training, Anne can come either for one or more 'workshop' sessions (typically 1 to 3 hours each), or come to your workplace on a regular basis over a 1-4 months period. For the latter option the number of hours of training can be adjusted to suit your needs, but typically it consists of about 15-20 hours of training. The hours can be offered in small doses and spread out over some time (for example 2.5 or 1.5 hours per week), or in larger chuncks (for example 5 sessions of 4 hours each). This can also involve training of internal trainers which allows the workplace to continue the practice after the course has finished.    

Out-of-house training: Invite your team or group of leaders to do a 1, 2 or 3-day workshop, or go the whole way and do a 1 week training course in Gozo. The training can also include other subjects of your choice, such as  "stress", "communication", "collaboration" etc.
