Organisations are facing tough times – with growing pressure to do more for less.
This takes its toll on employees: the Labour Force Survey reports that 15.4 million work days a year are lost through stress, anxiety and depression. The current Covid-19 situation is adding extra layers of difficulty. In the face of these challenges people need a better way of thinking and working. Our mindfulness-based resilience training programme can provide exactly this
Unlike most mindfulness training programmes, ours takes a highly pragmatic, realistic and no-nonsense approach. It’s specially designed for the workplace to help you handle stress; adapt quickly to rapid change; manage workloads and energy; maintain focus and concentration; make good decisions under pressure; and prioritise competing demands. The training is suitable for employees at all levels. We provide the programme through a range of formats:
E-learning programme: see below
In-house live programmes (on site/virtual): number and frequency of sessions tailored to your needs
One-to-one coaching: tailored support either instead of the group training, or as a supplement to it.
E-learning workplace resilience programme
The Rising Minds E-learning Resilience Programme consists of six modules of 45 mins, to be completed at any time online, providing an immersive learning experience with a mix of video, quizzes, exercises and interactive elements. The learning is mainly experiential, through mindfulness meditations and exercises, supported by a simple theoretical framework. Participants are encouraged to do 10-15 minutes of daily mindfulness practice in between sessions, and short written reflections to embed and personalise the learning.
During this exceptional covid 19 period, we're offering substantial discounts on the e-learning programme. To find out more more, please contact us

Mindfulness: what, why and how
When you train in mindfulness, you learn to become more aware of what’s actually going on in and around you. By developing this ‘mental muscle’ – through regular practice of simple awareness techniques – you build new neural pathways to parts of the brain associated with calm, wellbeing and emotional positivity. It also counteracts unhelpful ‘autopilot’ thinking – when attention gets stuck in difficult thoughts and emotions – opening up access to higher brain functions for clear thinking. Mindfulness has been shown in clinical studies to lead to significant improvements in:
Performance: focus, concentration and productivity
Cognitive functioning: learning, memory, creative problem solving
Wellbeing: calm & emotional positivity
Relationship and communication: empathy and emotional intelligence
We have developed a highly effective and simplified ABC mindfulness model for our training:
Awareness: of your mind/body experience, grounding yourself, and creating space for reflection
Being with your experience: allowing your brain and body to process your thoughts and emotions
Choosing wise responses: accessing your wise mind to make good short- and long-term life choices
