Student Services and TeamBath focus on staff well-being

At a recent annual department away day for Student Services, TeamBath Wellness & Lifestyle Manager, Nicky Fossey-Lewis, helped staff focus on how to manage the pressures of their roles to ensure their own well being and the continued effectiveness of their services.

The afternoon consisted of a range of practical, individual and group activities designed to help us explore the nature of wellness, and strategies to maintain and enhance it.

Most participants found the afternoon energising, stimulating and thought provoking.

Feedback included: "Very useful programme, both as a reminder and to kick-start improvement in healthy balance", and: "Very clear, focused and thoughtfully presented throughout. I felt Nicky was very motivating".

Mark Ames, Head of Student Services, said: "It is essential that any staff engaged in providing services to others are supported and encouraged to ensure their own needs are also being identified and met. Only in this way can they sustain the high quality of service they aim to provide to others.

"The work with Nicky was very helpful in reminding us all of the need to invest time and energy in maintaining and enhancing our own well-being."
