Preventing workplace bullying & promoting positive leadership
This one to one coaching programme supports an individual to move on after experiencing bullying in the workplace, or having been accused of bullying (proven or otherwise). The emotional impact often lasts for considerably longer than the experience itself, and can continue to have a detrimental effect on health, emotional wellbeing, home life and work performance without support to move forward.
It explores how to release any shame, anger, or guilt that they are carrying as a result of their experience, and to take responsibility for the impact of their own behaviours during the process. It encourages the individual to embrace forgiveness, and to understand their power in making choices about how to respond and feel. It is a truly individual and personalised approach to bring them back to the true and best versions of themselves.
This programme is open to individuals who have left their employment but are still struggling to move on.
Businesses can also refer employees who have remained in employment after a bullying investigation (whatever the outcome).
Solicitors dealing with employment law/stress at work claims may also refer clients.
If you are dealing with bullying, or even just need to explore your own situation from an external perspective, then contact us today for a completely confidential discussion.

coping with workplace bullying
In the workplace, the support is primarily centred around formal policies and procedures that are used to raise the issue. Bullying impacts on the business even before getting to the stage of being reported, as well as beyond, affecting staff morale, productivity, absenteeism, costs of management and HR time, financial settlements, recruitment of new staff and reputation.
However, for many people, even reporting the bullying is too much to face. Perhaps you’re not even able to admit to yourself, never mind to others, that you feel bullied? By the time you feel ready to report a bully, the chances are that you have been dealing with the impact for some time and may not therefore be prepared emotionally for the next stage of the journey.
Bullying affects people's behaviours, emotions, self esteem, confidence and work performance. For individuals, whether you are coping with bullying, or being accused of being a bully, where do you turn for support?
Perhaps you've been accused of being a bully, and it's been a shock for you, leaving you trying to understand how this could have happened.
Maybe you've already walked away because it all became too much, and now you need to start again in a new job or role.
This range of programmes has been designed to meet the needs of businesses, but also offer confidential, independent coaching support for individuals. Each programme is designed to help everyone recognise bullying, and understand the impact that it has on individuals, their behaviours, their health and emotional wellbeing, as well as exploring how those changes impact everyone involved, both at work and at home.
Every situation is unique, and the programmes focus on prevention and early intervention, to minimise the long term emotional impact and potential mental health issues that are often faced. Support is also available to help people to move on after experiencing bullying in the workplace.
If you are dealing with bullying, as an individual or a business, or even just need to explore your own situation from an external perspective, then contact us today for a completely confidential discussion. Bespoke training and speaking events are also available.
"Nicki helped me overcome a past work-bullying experience through asking me simple questions that made me turn a negative experience into a positive one. She is definitely the Guru in Bullying at Work and how to avoid it and deal with it, whether as a management team or as an employee. Thank you Nicki for all the brilliant help you gave me"”
"Being in a safe and comfortable environment, with a coach who demonstrated the utmost professionalism gave me confidence to speak openly. There were times when I would take the conversation to unplanned places, but I felt I always had the time, space and permission to do this. Nicki would organically weave any new insights found on these tangents back into the central thread of our session."
