The Company
Click here to see Jonathan speaking
at a recent Conference
From Stress To Success was established in 2000 by Jonathan Bockelmann-Evans and provides a
unique service: the opportunity for an organisation to enjoy all the benefits associated with
having employees who are as emotionally healthy as possible.
Using the latest findings from the fields of neurobiology, psychology and human behaviour,
in conjunction with clear thinking, common sense and evidence-based practice, From Stress To
Success can help individuals within an organisation to free themselves from the anxiety, insecurity
and negativity associated with difficult events in the past leading to unprecedented levels of
emotional health and wellbeing in the present and a sense of optimism for the future.
For organisations who recognise the benefits of committing to ensuring they have an emotionally mature and well
adjusted talent resource, this can mean a transformation in workplace culture; increases in productivity and
creativity, improved communications, reductions in sickness/absence and disputes and, importantly, enhanced
service-user experiences and/or increased profits.
Our Services
Your organisation can benefit from 4 distinct services:
Emotional Health and Wellbeing Training Courses - focused, fun, insightful and effective, the quality of these training
courses has helped define our outstanding reputation in this area
Workplace Mediation for resolving disputes and conflict 85% success rate. Confidential and non-judgmental,
resolutions are normally achieved in one day
Emotional Health Clinics run within the organisation - day-long clinics for staff to sign up to and have a brief but
effective hour with our Emotional Health Consultant
Psychotherapy - for those who may need a more individual approach away from the workplace - a few sessions is all
it usually takes
ʻOrganisations wondering whether to run this training should not hesitate - this is easily the
most popular, well received and universally relevant course weʼve run. As you know, we
are booking further sessions for the New Year and I suspect that the course will form part
of the ongoing development programme.ʼ
Christine Henderson, Training and Development Manager,
Morgan Cole Solicitors
ʻAfter your first training session, the HR department was overwhelmed with requests to
attend your next session. Feedback such as ʻthe best training session the Museum has
organisedʼ, and ʻthe best course Iʼve ever attendedʼ were received by the department. Staff
have sought me out confidentially to tell me that they are using the techniques you taught
them and, more importantly, that they are benefitting from doing so. The post-attendance
evaluation forms were the best I have seen - every attendee rated the course as
Kaye Blanch, Head of HR,
National Museum of Wales
ʻThank you for the training session you provided for our managers. It was an excellent
introduction to the importance of emotional health and wellbeing and the feedback from
our managers has been extremely positive.’
Victoria Luke, HR Operations Manager,
Veolia Water Outsourcing Ltd (Dwr Cymru/Welsh Water)
ʻI wish to thank you for the excellent sessions you ran for all our staff - the feedback from
all was entirely positive. This is praise indeed when you recognise that a lot of our staff are
used to undertaking group work and presentations themselves so some can be difficult to
please. The Evaluation documentation was a pleasure to read and comments included:
ʻSuperb trainingʼ, ʻExcellent speakerʼ (this was repeated time and time again), and ʻGood
mixture of theory and practice. Jon was articulate, knowledgeable and entertainingʼ. I have
rarely been in a situation where I can say that this training will be replicated most definitely
in the future but this is indeed the case.’
