Pearn Kandola Wellbeing Webinars

Pearn Kandola are a leading independent business psychology firm who work with global organisations and are offering a week of webinars designed to help look after wellbeing. These webinars include how to manage your anxiety; resilience; energy levels; work and home life; and give the opportunity to try different types of meditation.

How to manage your anxiety – Monday 30th November, 9:15-10:00 - Tracey Moggeridge, Mindfulness Practitioner, looks at what exactly anxiety is, how it manifests psychologically and physiologically, its impact on our behaviours, and most importantly – what we can do about it. Register here.

Which type of meditation works best for you? – Tuesday 1st December, 9:15-10:00 - If you have previously thought that mediation was not for you, you may be relieved to know that there’s not just one method. Tracey Moggeridge, Mindfulness Practitioner, will give you the opportunity to try and reflect upon three different meditation techniques to see which works best for you. Register here.

How to improve your resilience – Wednesday 2nd December, 9:15-10:00 - 2020 has been a year full of challenges both in our professional and personal lives. Psychological resilience is not a rare quality or a fixed attribute but a set of responses to adversity that we can learn and develop and at this moment in time is more important than ever. In this seminar Louise Weston will share some of the resilience building techniques that are used within her coaching work to support your own resilience in these testing times. Register here.

How to survive living and working at home – Thursday 3rd December, 9:15-10:00 - For many of us, our homes are places in which we both live and work. This may not feel like such a huge change, but many of the features of a ‘capsule environment’ – something psychologists have studied for many years – are once more being replicated in our houses. Professor Binna Kandola OBE investigates how to make living and working at home more manageable and enjoyable for you. Register here.

How to manage your energy levels – Friday 4th December, 9:15-10:00 - Many of us are feeling fatigued at the moment from the various pressures in our lives. We are not machines – we operate best in bursts of activity followed by proper recovery and rest. Join Jonathan Taylor to explore the psychology behind what influences our perception of ‘stress’ and how to make the most of your downtime to replenish your energy levels and maximise recovery.
