Proactive mental health support for employees
We meet with people in the workplace to help them feel better and improve their mental fitness. Especially as they deal with uncertainty and stress associated with the current crisis.
Our approach is friendly, practical and inviting. We don't just leave a hotline number as most EAP's. We proactively engage with employees, raise awareness and get them excited about their mental health.
How we partner with your company?
Stress, anxiety and depression have become another epidemic, so mental health is now a priority for both employees and their leaders. We’re not only fighting a health crisis, but we’re also managing change, isolation, fear, home office, business decline, all on top of work as usual.
As most of our clients are implementing remote work and adapting budgets, we've taken all our sessions online to be able to support their people no matter where they are. We create virtual safe spaces for employees to address their challenges and improve their wellbeing.
Most companies start by running a webinar or a few open talks on Mental Health to raise awareness. They also subsidize individual sessions with a psychologist (now held remotely) as a benefit to employees or as a part of their development plan. Just like you purchase sports cards and training.
People get the support they need when they need it:
Employees can join an open talk, attend a webinar or book a private session with a psychologist, on-demand throughout the day.
This creates a safe space for everyone to share feelings and get psychological support when they need it. Working on your mental health becomes a normal activity, just like going to a virtual yoga class.
How we work in practice:
Depending on the maturity of your culture, as well as the existing coping mechanisms and emotional intelligence of your team, our partnership usually includes:
Open Mental Health talks and webinars for raising awareness and driving culture change
Remote mental health coaching and counseling with a psychologist
Quality content and tools tailored to your culture
Monthly HR and leadership get-togethers
Company dashboard for feedback, scheduling sessions and reporting to measure our impact and continuously improve
Our virtual and in-person workshops cover topics like:
Managing stress and anxiety
How to avoid burnout and support colleagues who're struggling
Setting healthy boundaries
Emotional agility for challenging times
Supporting employees with their mental health in times of uncertainty
Mindfulness and breathwork for busy people
What's the impact?
By spending time in the business, we aim to encourage people to proactively work on their mental and behavioral health. We increase awareness on the topic, remove the barriers to find help and build healthier cultures and teams:
Better Team Dynamics
Build empathy and trust as a part of your culture. People learn how to debate effectively and have positive relationships
What happens in your Mental Health session?
Your session with a psychologist is a confidential 1on1 conversation on any topic that is relevant for you at the moment: from handling difficult situations all the way to important life changes, grief, stress and anxiety, burnout, work/personal relationships, confidence and many more.
Your psychologist will listen, without judgment, and will provide support and brief counseling. So, you can move on with your day with a clear head.
Our style of working is strength-based and grounded in the relationship between two people in a conversation. Regardless of the techniques we use, the biggest magic happens when there are trust and involvement on both sides. We focus on the present moment and use a mix of skills from social and organizational psychology, solution-oriented therapy, mindfulness, and embodied methods.
What people about NotYourTherapy:
Unlike executive coaching, NoyYourTherapy sessions create a safe space for everyone (not just managers) to get support and work on their mental and emotional fitness.
For leadership coaching check out coaching pages.
Our purpose is not to treat mental illness at the workplace. Instead, we focus on prevention, build skills and awareness, and create a culture of openness.
Our psychologists are trained to consult on issues that coaches cannot, and can identify if you're at risk to refer you to specialized help.
We get you
We are not the typical bunch of clinical psychologist who meet people in the doctors’ office.
We're real people, not robots.
We understand business, speak IT and appreciate humans as they are.
In their own words:
Community Team Lead, Chaos
"Last year, Velina consulted the company I worked for and within a short time, she managed to make a big difference in improving the organizational culture and the wellbeing of the team members. She is an exceptional psychologist who is able to listen, understand, empower and create win-win situations for both employees and the business.
For me, personally, the meeting with Velina was transformational."
GM, Zuhlke Bulgaria
"Working from home, due to the current external stress factors can have an impact on our mental well-being, which is worth to be handled with special attention. I would like say huge thanks to Velina Getova, who provided our team with food for thoughts on our emotional triggers as well as practical coping mechanisms during her webinar: "Emotional Agility for Challenging Times". It was an excellent session and discussion and I am happy and grateful she gifted us her personal time as a speaker and a coach on those topics with our team in Sofia and Belgrade. Thank you Velina Getova - feedback from the team was also very good!"
Product Owner, MentorMate
"Today I used my lunch break to attend a very insightful webinar about stress and burnout by Velina Getova! Especially now, since the pandemic happened, most of us work from home and it is sometimes difficult to separate the end of the work day from the time for rest.
The generation that always strives to be better, to achieve more - that is a great path to innovation but we also should learn how to take a break, how to listen to our bodies, give space to our inner mind to rest and restart for new challenges!
Thank you for the great session!"
People Partner, Cognyte
"Last week we had two great sessions about Mental Health led by Velina Getova.
Some of our learning:
Mental Fitness in the workplace is all about how we think, feel and behave. And yes, mental fitness is as important as physical fitness. It helps improve productivity, job satisfaction, health and overall well-being. Thank you Velina Getova for all the insights and experience that you shared with our team!"
Leadership team @Progress
"I wanted to thank you again for providing the Mental Health and Well Being webinar and chat with Velina Getova.
She was encouraging with good suggestions on how to care for ourselves and work expectations and kept the topic realistic.
It made a difference in my day, and plan for the next few weeks.
Managers' Training Participant
"I found the content very useful and clearly explained. Velina created an open environment and facilitated the session really well, maintaining a very good balance between theory and practice and engaging all participants.
I also appreciated that she tailored the content to IT domain specifics and showed that she had exposure to it, as I think this helps in better relating to participants' day-to-day context."
