We teach doctors how to beat stress and take control of their work

Are you a GP, hospital doctor or healthcare professional on the edge of stress and burnout who wants to thrive at work, feel calm and competent and love what you do again?
We have put together a simple yet powerful set of tools which will help you beat stress, stay resilient and manage yourself and your colleagues much better. It’s called the Shapes Toolkit and is based on key principles of neuroscience, psychology and coaching.
The Shapes Toolkit training is delivered through workshops, one-to-one coaching and online training  – choose a format that works best for you.

We also deliver the Shapes Toolkit training for professionals in high stress jobs in other organisations. Please visit our other website for more info and resources.
