Maintaining Good Mental Health After a Year of Lockdowns
Show Notes

Welcome to The Career Foundation’s [email protected] Podcast and Webinar Series! This week, we discuss the importance of good mental health in the workplace and what’s needed to maintain a strong state of wellbeing as we approach the one-year anniversary of COVID-related lockdowns.

Guest panellist, Zdenka Goralikova (Registered Psychotherapist and founder of The Present Therapy), talks about the common difficulties workers and their employers are facing as they continue adjusting to remote work. We discuss strategies employers can take to build trust and boost morale among staff, and tackle the important question: is asking for help a demonstration of weakness? Finally, we talk about what a healthy mindset should look like in the face of disruption, change and uncertainty. 

About Our Panellist:

After immigrating to Canada from Europe, she was inspired to study  Gestalt Therapy due to its emphasis on personal development. She personally benefited from her own therapy experience to take control of her life and overcome personal challenges. After several transformational events took place in her life, Zdenka identified her value in life and relearned the importance of self-love so she could empower and support her clients.
