Marichen Mortimer & Associates - Stress Management Workshops support Employee Wellness.


The MM&A stress management programme delivers return on investment as participants are helped to understand stress and their respective responses to stress. The 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.

Two of the most effective ways to interrupt stress patterns, are to incorporate a little breathwork and meditation into one's day. Marichen makes this easy with short, guided sessions - please enoy this FREE SAMPLE TRACK track off her double-volume album (with 13 tracks in total) right now: Inner Peace Guided Meditation

Breathwork and meditation are scientifically proven to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system to enable relaxation and healing, to reduce heart rate, blood pressure and stress hormones in the body.

Both teams and individuals can de-stress with Marichen's self-help tools:
