Marichen Mortimer & Associates - Stress Management Workshops supported by Guided Breathwork, customised Call Center Trainin and Employee Wellness.


The MM&A stress management course "Transforming Stress to Success" delivers return on investment as participants are helped to understand stress and their respective responses to stress. The stress management programme assists participants to learn tools and techniques on how to effectively deal with stress and also assists individuals to develop their own sustainable approach to manage their stress.

The negative effects of suppressed stress can lead to physical, mental and emotional dysfunctions, namely:

  • Poor decision-making
  • Lack of concentration
  • Absenteeism
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome (burn-out)
  • Exhaustion, lethargy and mental disorders
  • Immune deficiencies, recurring infections
  • Eating disorders, obesity, duodenal and stomach ulcers
  • Disturbance of heart rhythm and hypertension, heart attacks
  • Drug dependency, alcoholism and depression
  • Insomnia, eczema and psoriasis

The Programme has offered measurable results to various organisations. Some of the proven positive benefits of the stress management programme include the following improvements:

  • Higher productivity and efficiency
  • Better attendance, alertness and increased concentration (focus on work)
  • Increased levels of motivation, job satisfaction, innovation and creativity
  • Quicker achievement of set goals and targets

"I found the course 'From Stress to Success' extremely satisfying intellectually, emotionally and physically. It is a multifaceted approach involving both cognitive and carnal concepts conveyed in an engaging style, with many personal anecdotes and suggestions to enhance one's sense of well being, mental focus and physical readiness to handle any challenges one may be faced with professionally and personally.
My goals of feeling revitalised and relaxed, thinking positively and behaving confidently were all met and I can highly recommend the course to anyone looking for a way to better handle stress in whatever shape or form it comes." - Sean Kluyts
