Stress and Resilience for Employees

Being under pressure or “feeling stressed” is a normal part of life. However, if you find yourself becoming overwhelmed by stress these feelings could start to be a problem.

This course will explore possible causes of stress and how to deal with pressure, helping you to effectively manage stress and improve your own resilience and wellbeing.

Health and Safety Manager, Marie Curie

I have attended sessions covering both Mental Health Awareness and Personal Safety. They were very engaging, thought provoking and fun. The depth of experience and clear passion of the trainer about the subjects covered was very inspirational. I am very likely to recommend Oakwood Training to others and and already have done.

Occupational Health Nurse, Hobson Health

Excellent trainer whose enthusiasm and knowledge for the subject shone through in this interactive and though provoking course.

Cancer Awareness Nurse Manager, Cancer Research UK

Oakwood have delivered excellent sessions to our Roadshow and Hub teams. The company were extremely professional and tailored the training to meet our needs, something that not all training providers will do. The Trainers are extremely engaging and informed, using their expertise to bring the sessions to life. Courses were delivered in an interesting and interactive way, receiving very positive feedback from all who attended. They have provided excellent resources post training and we are all implementing the learning from the day. Thank you to Oakwood for your excellent training.

Learning & Development, Corporate Health, Ingues

Working with Oakwood has been a fantastic experience. From the first time we engaged with Oakwood, they have taken time and care to understand our business, the needs of our learners and the challenges they face. The sessions are interactive, tailored, and delivered with the utmost professionalism and passion. So far, over 90 staff have attended these sessions, and 100% have said how informative & inspirational they found the training. I would highly recommend Oakwood as a provider of choice for raising awareness & understanding of this important issue in your organisation.

Director, Barnardo's Cymru

Working with Oakwood training has been an excellent experience from the moment we engaged them through to the actual training sessions being delivered to over 40 of our managers in Barnardo’s Cymru. The session itself was delivered with so much passion and understanding ensuring staff really engaged. Staff are so interested in building on their initial learning we are now looking at mental health first aid training for all our staff. For an introduction to mental health and wellbeing for everyone in the organisation I would thoroughly recommend Oakwood Training.
