Mental Resilience for the Modern Workplace

We help teams to improve their mental resilience by equipping them with practical skills to manage thoughts and emotions.

We work with organisations of all shapes and sizes, from SMEs to Global Brands, across all sectors.

Challenges Facing Organisations

Challenge 1
Modern conditions are increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. The speed and scale of social and technological change in our environment is outpacing our evolved capacity to handle it.
Challenge 2
Most of us were never taught effective coping strategies; therefore, as adults, we often deal with stress using unsustainable, and even maladaptive, methods.
This is driving a growing workplace mental health crisis.

The Solution

A Mental Resilience toolkit of twelve practical techniques to manage thoughts and emotions, supported by the latest research in psychology and neuroscience.

Digital Training Options

Our programmes are now fully digitally tailored and available online, so we can deliver our mental resilience masterclasses live and direct to your employees as they work from home


As soon as the pandemic emerged we knew that Tough Cookie had a vital role to play supporting individuals within organisations as they moved from office based to working from home. We saw immediately that the global crisis we are living through is also a mental health crisis waiting to happen.

As millions of us self-isolate in our homes, negative mental states, cracks in relationships, generalised fears and anxieties around our health and financial situation can become magnified and overwhelming. At the same time our established support networks and ways of managing our wellbeing such as time in the gym or connecting over a cup of tea are all falling away.

Our specialist team of resilience trainers will equip your team with the skills they need to manage their thoughts and emotions and cope effectively during the pandemic and beyond.
