In my view it is so important to look after yourself and those around you both at home and in the workplace. Showing some care and empathy can create a much better atmosphere between colleagues and also help the workforce feel appreciated, and may increase productivity, and perhaps keep absenteeism to a minimum.

In the therapy […]
