Together we’ll help your business perform better
In today’s world of uncertainty and a cut throat working environment, everyone needs to be the best version that they can be, and more importantly, stand head and shoulders above the crowd. That applies from the Chief Executive to the most junior of staff. Change is not always easy to accept and can affect the mental health of individuals, and what about the impact of the stresses and strains that go on in our personal lives –this too affects our mental health.1 in 4 people suffer with a mental health issue. One in every 3 sick notes issued is for mental health problems.
Employees who suffer with stress, depression, anxiety, or have suffered a bereavement, often have increased absence from work. Our coaching techniques have a high success rate in getting employees back to work faster, or preventing absence if referred quickly, benefiting the company by saving sick pay and preventing the need to backfill to ensure capacity and business continuity is not hindered.
After an initial free consultation, a bespoke coaching solution is designed to suit your business needs either working with individuals or teams, either on short or long term contracts. The programme can be within business hours, evenings or weekends. Sessions can be conducted either at your premises or ours in Staffordshire, and can vary from approximately one hour, with half and full breakthrough day sessions being optional.
For every £1 invested in mental health and wellbeing employers will see a return on their investment of £5
Coaching within the business place is about developing skills and knowledge, breaking down barriers so that mental and emotional resilience improves, leading to the achievement of organisational objectives and vision. Sessions target goals and the options to achieving them resulting in an improvement within the business environment.
In most organisations, staffing is the largest bill, and is therefore the biggest investment. Recruiting staff is known to cost approximately 20% of the first years’ salary of a new employee, and can be risky if the appointment does not prove successful. It costs much less to coach current employees within the organisation who show signs of potential for development. Surely it is worth investing in your own staff? Multiple studies show that organisations investing in coaching are achieving high percentages of returns on their investment.

Helen is a remarkable coach. She has recently helped a contact who was experiencing a range of anxiety problems. She has a really engaging approach and took the time to meet and understand the problems before committing any solution. Her warm professionalism made an instant connection and built the trust needed to have the help accepted – from somebody who was very skeptical of what could be achieved. Most amazing was watching the difference Helens intervention made; she has transformed the life of the individual, giving them renewed confidence to tackle life’s challenges with a totally new positive outlook. It’s been a remarkable journey. I have zero hesitation in recommending Helen Dos Santos and Horizons Coaching to companies or individuals who are seeking to make a change.
To support the mental and emotional wellbeing of your staff and improve their resilience, why not consider introducing bite-size sessions, half or full day workshops. Recent understanding of Neuroscience has focussed more on business success. Based on this latest neuroscience staff will gain a greater understanding that behaviour changes the brain and the brain changes our behaviour. The tips and techniques shared will assist staff to be more resourceful and flourish, and assist your organisation in being more successful. Your organisation would see sickness absence and presenteeism reduced, and it is proven that staff are 18% more productive when happy. These sessions are available to be delivered in-house or virtually.
I do thoroughly enjoy your workshops, they provide exactly what is needed without us fully appreciating that it is actually what we all need. It never feels like therapy or a workshop, rather a wake-up call to realisation and empowers you with opportunity and the urge to want to believe there are other ways of bringing out the best of any situation or circumstances you may find yourself in, currently, to be able to be happier in life.

Everything DiSC® Profiling is a tool that can be used for onboarding, ensuring a new colleague will fit into the team. It has huge benefits for team building, whereby pairing employees who have complementary profiles on projects can enhance production and results.

Managers, once they know each of their employees’ dominant personality traits, can customise their communication and motivational processes to tap into their staffs’ strengths.
