The following case study is an example of how Pinnacle Therapy has helped the director of a small business reduce their stress levels and increase their confidence.

In this particular company we worked on counselling the director through the stress triggers and worked on stress management techniques. We then moved on to provide coaching sessions to build the director’s confidence. This was achieved by working on her professional skills and personal strengths.

Just eighteen months on, the business has grown from 10 to over 30 staff – with profits soaring from approximately £1 million to over £8 million.

The client, who is not named due to the highly confidential nature of our work, said:

“By sorting out the stress and shifting the primary focus to my strengths, the impacts on the productivity and growth of the business have been exceptional.”
