Working for the prevention of and protection from physical and mental illness


The Being Well Process

Why Lifestyle matters to business It seems only logical that the healthier and happier people are the better they will work. This is a theory supported by a raft of psychological, neurological and economic research. After working in health and wellbeing for over 15 years Clinical Director and Registered Health Psychologist Amberley Meredith noted that most physical and mental illness stems from poor coping strategies and poor lifestyle habits. The BeingWell Process (TBWP) has been created to help people learn more about how they function and how they make choices about their lifestyle. It’s simple when you don’t feel 100% you cannot give 100%, to anything! TBWP helps companies assist their employees into better health and wellbeing, and in return they increase their productivity, performance and quality, and reduce staff turnover. It’s a win-win situation for everyone.

Our Approach Human beings exist on 4 different levels, the physical

(Tinana),

emotional,

mental

(Hinengaro) and spiritual (Wairua) and balance on all 4 is required to achieve optimum health and wellbeing. Furthermore, global wellbeing is tightly interwoven with the way people find and maintain a harmonious state of being within their communities and families (whanau). TBWP utilises the latest cutting-edge, evidencebased research to inform and design services. As people
