"When your people flourish, your business thrives.” - Dr Georgi Toma
Forward thinking organisations are realising that the success and wellbeing of their staff and the business go hand in hand and should be central to business strategy. By investing in employee mental fitness and wellbeing you can gain a myriad of advantages.
Kiwis are increasingly reporting poor mental health wellbeing. For some it is caused by major trauma but for others it is coping with daily stresses of family life and the demands of work. A NZ Ministry of Health Survey in 2019 found that:
- 1 in 5 adults aged 15 years and over are diagnosed with a mood and/or anxiety disorder
- People reporting poor mental health has risen from 20% in 2020 to 36% in 2022.
Benefits of a Workplace Wellness Programme
- A better culture - As Peter Drucker said, “Culture eats strategy for breakfast.” It’s about being human. The way in which people communicate, connect and care for each other at every level of the business has a profound influence on how people perform.
- Higher levels of commitment and engagement which leads to lower staff turnover, absenteeism, ability to attract staff in a tight labour market, and improved productivity.
- Lower levels of stress and higher resilience with employees who work better together, stay calm and can rapidly adapt to shifting circumstances with an open mind, better decision making and improved creative thinking.
Here’s what one client had to say
"Bhavna has worked with my leadership team and I on mental fitness and wellbeing over the last 18 months. As a team I think we have become more real and human in our interactions with each other and our teams. As individuals and leaders, there is no doubt that it has helped us with resilience and being stronger leaders of our teams." - Hamish White, Founder, Director & CEO, NOW New Zealand Limited

Mindfulness can be defined as “mind training”. Think of it as workout for the mind which improves mental fitness, just like working out at the gym improves physical fitness.

You can lean into challenges and feel able to navigate change and stress, no matter what day-to-day life presents. Mental fitness enables you to reconnect with what it is that you love in your work and your life.

Individual Leadership Professional Supervision
Cross-discipline supervision is common, and supervision is beneficial to most professionals. Bhavna's approach to supervision is wholistic in nature. She sees it as the "how you do what you do" rather than what you do. Supervision looks at your relationship with yourself, your role at work and how you engage at work. The aim is to support you to feel that you are giving your best and receiving all that you can from your working life, without losing your personal life and identity.
Although the primary focus is on work, at times, it is essential to focus on elements of the persons personal life, as that can affect their ability to perform or focus on work.
