Our Approach

A.W.E. is the culmination of many years of research and teaching around emotional and social intelligence theories.

We want to empower people to better manage Adverse Workplace Experiences by enabling them to recognise and act upon their daily stress responses in order to enhance both quality of life and mental health.

Our kitbag of tried and tested tools and techniques has become a staple part of many wellbeing strategies.

By blending training with science and therapeutic input; we believe we offer a unique and holistic approach to wellbeing and resilience.


Our Story

Co founders Susie and Jane are passionate about promoting employee wellbeing. With the current focus on mental health at work and in society in general; we wholeheartedly  welcome the recent publication of the Stevenson/ Farmer Report: "Thriving At Work" (October 2017)  highlighting the necessity for employers to commit to tailored, timely and relevant wellbeing solutions for their staff. Both Susie and Jane remain conscious that wellbeing has become an everyday buzz word that, if not managed effectively, can mean very little on a day to day - or shift to shift basis.

Susie and Jane's purpose is to translate wellbeing into the workplace to support employee mental health and resilience while decreasing absenteeism and stress related illness in the workplace.

We believe "It's OK not to be OK" and that everyone benefits from the self awareness, skills and techniques to manage their own psychological wellbeing at work.

By working with frontline staff in emergency departments, emergency call centres and prisons, Susie and Jane believe they understand the pressures facing our staff and can offer credible and relevant training.
