Managing stress has never been so stress-free!

In today’s world, Stress is omnipresent. Whether it’s the tasks you are expected to accomplish, the people you work with or the lack of space around you- stress comes in various forms and shapes! Thankfully, there are ways to reduce stress and feel more relaxed than you would normally be otherwise. A leading approach is to adopt our StressProofTM relaxation techniques in your daily life.

At Ergocentrixs, we use Health Survey for England (HSE) compliant Stress Risk Assessment tools to determine that you and your environment is free of stress provoking elements. We tailor solutions that can be implemented to increase productivity and performance, reduce sickness and protect you and your employees or family members from stress and a myriad cluster of stress-related disorders.

Our stress management program prepares and informs office-based professionals, manual workers, expecting parents, new parents, students, teachers and individuals from every walk of life about ways of handling everyday stressful situations through proven stress management techniques and pragmatic approaches. We aid identification of symptoms and the source of stress in your life, recognize stress triggers and help to integrate stress management techniques in an individual’s daily life to permanently reduce stress and improve all round work-life balance.

Work related stress

At Ergocentrixs we determine the cultural and commercial cost of stress for your organisation by conducting a HSE compliant Stress Risk Assessment. This allows us to identify the solutions that can be implemented to increase productivity and performance, reduce absenteeism, alleviate anxiety and issues associated with stress and excessive pressure for your employees. Through our customised stress management training programs, as an employer, you can provide your employees the benefit of an effective and conscious way to tackle workplace stress and benefit from increased workforce productivity .

We do not believe in a “one size fits all” strategy and discuss the aims of a proposed stress management training program with you to ensure that the proposed approach fully satisfies your organisational requirements. Our half-day or day-long stress management training courses are always delivered in-house and can accommodate the entire work force or small groups as the need may be. They are highly interactive and allow for group discussions, personal reflection and action planning sessions. In addition, they are carefully structured to illustrate how the risks of stress can be minimised for individual employees and for the organisation as a whole.

Young people and stress

Education-related stress is the most prevalent-but-untreated cause of academic failure in children and young adults at schools and universities respectively. Education-related stress is believed to affect an alarming 6 to 10 million children a year. On average, in a classroom of 25 students, between one and three students are at high risk of developing stress-related problems which can interfere with learning. We assess and address the core causes of stress in children and young adults to recommend and integrate preventive methods in their daily routines.

However, many women go through serious stress-related health issues during pregnancy.
