VIDEO: Exploring mental health triggers for pest professionals

Do you find yourself reacting negatively to people, emails or events at work?

Maybe you get irritated by things people say and do, or you lack confidence in meetings, or you doubt yourself, never feeling good enough...

If you experience this kind of negative reaction at work, or you have colleagues who do, this video is for you.

In this video, guest speakers Karen Mason and Lewis Smales, Essentially Human, discuss how emotional triggers are a valuable signal, not to be ignored. 

All information presented was correct at the time of filming

This video is designed for pest technicians or business owners who want practical advice on mental health awareness for themselves and their employees.
