From Insight to Impact


Welcome!

Are your employees or colleagues suffering from stress, overwhelm, anxiety, lack of confidence which affect their performance at work? Could they use a confidence boost and some understanding in how they can be in control over their own minds?

Are people and their mental fitness and emotional wellbeing vital to your organisation or company?

Would you like them to have foolproof ways of setting outcomes which they will actually achieve and set themselves up for success?

Could your team use some insight into how our mind works, how we think, behave and communicate in order to improve their rapport building and communication skills and be more impactful?

Then you are in the right place!

The "from Insight to Impact" training workshops are designed to:
  • Provide crucial insight into how our mind works, how we can take charge of it and what we can do to make positive changes in our lives. Which in tuns lead to a more positive attitude, creativity and productivity.
  • Help Your Team, and the individuals within it, improve their skills, mental fitness and emotional wellbeing which in turns improves their self-esteem and confidence in their own abilities.
  • Improve their motivation, proactivity, performance and commitment to doing well at work and in their lives.

Did you know that approximately 1 in 4 people experience problems with their mental health each year? According to Mind, the mental health Charity, 1 in 6 people experience one of the common mental health issues (such as anxiety and depression) any given week!

And it all can be prevented! See more information and statistics in FAQs: Why is it important for me, the team leader / business owner.

What will my team gain?

The structure of From Insight to Impact:

1. Awareness

My 20+ years of experience in exploring the human mind and brain has led me to understand that the first step towards creating change is awareness. Once we are aware of what is happening. This part of the training workshops will increase awareness around the chosen topic and their long-term impact and/or benefits. And then we need to have the tools to make an impact as well, don’t we?

2. Insight

Once we built awareness is important to gain insight into how our minds work in different situations and what you can do to take charge of it and change if needed in the particular circumstances we focus on at the time. This insight is crucial for the third part of each workshop. Once we understand how things work, it instantly becomes easier to take control of and positively influence our minds.

3. Impact

And then comes the question: What can I do to change things? At the end of each workshop your team will leave with the Gift of some easily applicable practical tools they can use in their professional and everyday lives.

All three parts will be relevant to your chosen topic(s), whether it is about mental fitness and wellbeing (stress, overwhelm, impostor syndrome, anxiety, negative self-talk, confidence, etc.) or more practical skills like setting yourself up for success, outcome setting, rapport building or communication.

Frequently Asked Questions


Why is it important for me, the team leader / business owner?

Did you know that approximately 1 in 4 people experience problems with their mental health each year? According to Mind, the mental health Charity, 1 in 6 people experience on if the common mental health issues (such as anxiety and depression) any given week!

Did you know that mental health and self-belief issues are the number one reasons for workplace absences? This includes work related stress, overwhelm and anxiety as well as overwhelm, confidence issues, negative self-talk, feeling inadequate, impostor syndrome, etc.

Mental health problems are all too common in the workplace and it is the leading causes of sickness absence. A staggering 70 million work days are lost each year due to mental health problems in the UK, costing employers approximately £2.4 billion per year… An essential building block of workplace mental health is the ability to have open, authentic conversations about mental health in the workplace, both individually and on a strategic level. This is more important than ever as we recover from the impact of the pandemic.” – The Mental Health Foundation UK -

Many of these issues can go undetected or overlooked. Even members of your own team may feel the need (whether perceived or true) to hide their negative thoughts and feelings so they could show up as confident, competent and adequate, even if they don’t feel like they are.

Short term, it may serve them and your business, however long term these issues may lead to anxiety, depression, mental breakdown and complete burnout.

Many of these issues, absences, decline in performance and motivation and in turns lost revenue can be easily prevented and overcome.

Regular input from a qualified and skilled professional, like myself, can prevent those from happening.

The ‘From Insight To Impact’ programme can help your employees, colleagues and team to feel better about themselves, increase their confidence, self-worth, self-belief and pick up new and improved skills. Improve their performance, motivation and commitment to their job roles and your company.

It is a matter of recognising the needs of the HUMAN BEINGS behind the professionals working for and with you. And help them become the very best version of themselves. A truly happy and confident person will always perform better, won’t they?

Are your people worth it? Is your business worth it?

Can I book just a stand-alone training workshop?

Of course. One session will have some positive impact; however, it tends to be temporary. Our conscious mind learns by curiosity and the subconscious mind learns by repetition. Continued practice, insight and check-ins will make a significant difference to our thinking, behaviour and communication. Regular training sessions will also bring the element of trust, create a culture of openness where people feel safe to express their thoughts and feelings with the intention of making positive changes in their work and personal lives.

Therefore, I would highly recommend to consider providing more regular input to your team’s long term mental fitness and emotional stability. The return on your investment into your team therefore your business will be more substantial and long lasting with regular training workshops.

Why study with Vanda?


I have worked as a neuro-rehabilitation specialist (conductor, BA Hons, MA mod.) since 2004. As a conductor I specialised in working with people with different neurological conditions (Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy, acquired Head Injury, Stroke, to mention a few). My bag has always been the brain, how it works, neuroplasticity and the incredible power of the human mind.

In 2018 I took on a new journey to study Neuro-Linguistic Programming. I have been practicing as an NLP Master Practitioner and coach, Hypnotherapist and Mindfulness Practitioner for a number of years, helping people with their personal growth. And while I run my own practice, I also live by the main principles of NLP and integrate it into my everyday life.

I am passionate about spreading the magic of NLP as it has a life changing, transformational impact on one’s life. Well, it certainly did for me and continues to do so every single day.

I believe in people’s potential and Life-Long Learning and that everyone learns differently, therefore everyone’s growth will look different.

As you can see, I spent most of my adult life researching and understanding the human mind, how it works and how it can be changed. And my mission is to help people understand their own mind too. Once we understand what is going on, we are more able to be in control of our feelings, actions, communication, and ultimately our lives, aren’t we?
