the essence of you – Mentoring
We are all vulnerable to the pressures of daily living, work, health and relationships which can inhibit our ability to function effectively. Through the HeartMath® mentoring program, we learn and practise science-based techniques that have been shown to change the way our body’s physiology responds in stressful situations. With new skills we’re able to empower ourselves by better regulating our energy throughout the day.
“The HeartMath programme just made sense. The tools are user friendly, easy to learn and easy to apply. They make a difference as soon as you start using them.” Educator, Hamilton.
The tools learnt are important for increasing self-awareness, building and sustaining wellbeing and enabling us to be the best that we can be. Automatic stress reactions don’t then need to dictate how we feel, respond or perform, whether we’re at work or home.
This mentoring program supports leaders, employees and others who are motivated to:
- Regulate and reduce stress
- Build composure and clarity
- Increase creativity and coherence
- Improve personal wellbeing and health
- Improve job performance and achievement
- Enhance personal and professional relationships
LEADERS can be assisted to enhance work culture that benefits workplace wellbeing and productivity. The mentoring program looks closely at the importance of a heart-focused approach for optimising performance and effectiveness.
The HeartMath techniques and strategies are scientifically validated with considerable peer-reviewed research behind them. By working with what’s already available to us physiologically, self-regulation of energy and the transformation of stress are completely achievable.
The mentoring program is generally for individuals but can also be beneficial for couples or small groups. It includes no less than five hours of mentoring, usually one hour per week. Mentoring can be by phone, skype or in person. On completion of the program ongoing coaching and mentoring is available.
the essence of you – Coaching
Personalised coaching can follow the HeartMath® mentoring or training program. It may also result from separate enquiry. The holistic approach supports people whose wellbeing is compromised in some way. This can be due to the challenges of a leadership role, a feeling of overwhelm, bullying, relationship difficulties, health barriers or anything else that’s impacting a person’s wellbeing.
“(the essence) gave me the strategies to be able to rethink, refocus and continue on through the day in a positive light.” Tanya, Waikato.
Stress affects our ability to perceive things clearly and communicate effectively. the essence coaching aims to get to the heart of any issue or challenge so that care and clarity can smooth the path ahead.
A confidential, mutual agreement outlines the purpose and terms of coaching, including the time allocated, be it one hour or several hours. It’s important to note that coaching is not medical care, counselling or therapy.
