Management support – Support for managers and staff groups

Management support is specialised professional guidance and training tailored to managers. It can include a range of talking therapies and methods to help managers manage stress and improve their leadership skills.

Why does a manager need support?

Perhaps unsurprisingly, many working managers experience some form of psychological distress as a result of their work. Therefore, we can see that the need for psychological support and guidance for managers is more relevant than ever.

What set our therapist apart was her genuine empathy and personal insight. Not only did she possess a deep understanding of neurodiversity, but she also shared personal experiences that resonated with us, creating an instant connection and fostering a sense of trust!
