Mental Wealth Management
Empower your people to proactively support their wellbeing
Supporting employee wellbeing makes good business sense. When people feel good they perform at their best and the business benefits.
However, transforming an organisation to better support mental health and wellbeing is not without challenge.
I advocate a holistic approach, such as that laid down in NICE Mental Wellbeing at Work Guidance. Doing so puts in place preventative and protective measures, as well as those that address mental ill-health caused or made worse by work.
That said, it's important to recognise that health and safety is a joint responsibility. The UK Health and Safety at Work Act etc. 1974, places duties on both the employer and the employee.
Whilst employers have a duty of care under The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations to both provide safe working conditions and respond when issues arise, such activities mean little if employees are not also taking care of themselves.
When people understand that their emotional wellbeing impacts their ability to think and function and if they know what to do to safeguard it, they can take appropriate action to keep themselves well.
Mental Wealth Management is designed to empower people to proactively care for themselves by increasing their mental health and wellbeing literacy.
Delivered in office or online, Mental Wealth Management uses money management principles to teach people how to perform at their best without negatively impacting their wellbeing.
The interactive course:
explores the meaning of mental health and wellbeing,
examines the causes of stress and its management, and
outlines the scientific basis of burnout and how it can be avoided.
Session 1. Safeguard wellbeing
>What is mental health?
>Mental Wealth Management principles
>What impacts our welbeing?
>How we can support ourselves
Session 2. Perform under pressure

Exercises and reflective tasks help individuals identify what helps them to stay well, identify their personal symptoms of stress and think about actions they can take when they notice they are no longer feeling good or functioning well.
Depending on interest, an additional mental wealth management planning session can be included to supplement learning and help people create a personal Mental Wealth Management Plan.

Who should attend?
This training is relevant to everyone.
Understanding how our mental wellbeing impacts our ability to think, feel and do and how we can support ourselves, empowers us to take early and appropriate action and keep ourselves well.
In large organisations it is usual to train upper management first so that they are familiar with the concepts before the rest of the workforce are introduced.
By the end of the course, attendees will know:
The difference between mental health and wellbeing
What activities support their wellbeing
Why stress occurs and how they can manage it
Their personal symptoms of stress
Why burnout occurs and how they can take to ensure it doesn’t happen to them

What clients say
I have worked with many coaches and can highly recommend Tracey as a very effective wellbeing coach.
She helped me notice tension in the body related to my unhappiness with my work situation and showed me how to 'feel' what was going on. I could not have done this without help and, if not for Tracey's coaching, would probably have allowed the situation to worsen. I have since dealt with the situation and am much happier.
Business Agility Consultant
Following my stroke, I often struggled with some well-meaning social interactions. I reached out to Tracey for help and during the discovery call she said I might become upset if others’ actions didn’t align with my expectations.
I went on to work with Tracey who helped me uncover my relationship values using a very practical and easy process. Effortlessly taking large amounts of information from me, accurately summarising my thoughts and helping me to focus on what matters to me.
By the end of the session I had a list of my core values which has enabled me to enjoy socialising again, an important step in my recovery journey.
EIA consultant, stroke survivor
I always feel like I can bring my 'whole self' to coaching with Tracey as she listens without judgement.
She has this knack of just 'getting it'. Such a skilled and empathic listener, she somehow manages to summarise all my 'waffle' into coherent and concise themes.
In just one session, she totally understood my imposter feelings and helped me to reconsider and reframe things.
I left feeling quietly confident about my career goals and shifted from thinking 'what if I get found out' to thinking 'actually, I'm gonna smash this!'
