About Blue Lobster...
"We live in a world where people still do not get the support they need in terms of mental health and well-being. Increasingly more is demanded of us from work, family and life, and consequently people feel unable to cope" Alana Warburton-Whitehead
Mental Health is still a taboo subject, and one about which people are afraid to talk about or ask for help. Anxiety and Depression cost the UK economy over £27.4 Billion last year and equated to 17.5 million days lost in 2019 (ONS's), equating to 44% of all work related ill health cases.
Critically, businesses need to keep people well & psychologically safe, as well as valued and supported, enabling them to thrive and do their jobs to the best of their ability, consequently reducing sickness absence.
We are a unique business that strives to deliver exceptional Mental health training, Resilience, Psychological Safety & Well-being into the corporate world. Our vision is for every company regardless of size to have their staff feeling healthy & well, with their Managers & Senior Leaders confident in supporting people with the right tools. Thats the Blue Lobster Initiative.
Blue Lobster Therapy was founded by Alana Warburton-Whitehead in 2016 after 25 years of working in a very fast paced and stressful commercial world. Alana left after having her first child and suffering with PTSD and Post Natal Depression. She wanted to close the gap, put something back and share what she had experienced and learned with others, to prevent other people suffering the same way. #closethegap

WELLBEING IN THE WORKPLACE 1 DAY COURSE
We have been running the 1 day Wellbeing in the Workplace workshop with our corporate clients since 2016 and have had a phenomenal response from delegates at all levels in their organisations. Alana delivers the course in an engaging, straightforward and non-threatening style without avoiding any of the serious and sensitive issues that so desperately need to be explored and discussed in all modern work environments. We look forward to running many more sessions.
TIM ENGLISH | GBB COACHING
“As someone who has first-hand experience of ill mental health, both personally and through family members, I felt like I already had pretty good knowledge about mental illness and it how it can manifest itself. However, what this course did for me was provide more information about the diverse range of mental health conditions, the impact this can have on the workplace, how to identify if someone is struggling and practical steps to help someone who is in need. On the first morning, we all joined with our own perceptions of mental health, however, by the end of the two days we all went away with a deeper understanding and skills we can now use in the workplace to support others. Alana was knowledgeable and sensitive towards the varying needs of everyone on the course. She led an open, interactive session where people could contribute as much or as little they felt comfortable. As a member of the construction industry, I also learnt that suicide kills far more construction workers than falls. This confirmed the importance of being able to start that conversation with a colleague and help to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health. Going forward, I now feel confident and equipped with the tools to be able to do this.
Thank you Alana!”
