WORKPLACE MENTAL WELL-BEING
FindYourWay Coaching provides education, training and consulting for mental wellbeing at the workplace, with a special focus on prevention.
As a company, we stand for equality of mental and physical health.
Our main and very distinctive focus is to combine mental wellbeing coaching with communication and leadership trainings under the umbrella of prevention. To do that we provide facilitation, group programs and mental wellbeing strategy for our clients, with an impact on organizations' cultural change.
The World Mental Health Federation states that it is key for companies, especially after what the pandemic has shown us, to look into prevention of mental struggle and equip themselves. This is what we assist with.
