Hello, I'm Natalie Stockdale.
My mission is simple- to make happier people.
Stress and emotional pain are inevitable life experiences, but when you're prepared, with effective tools and techniques, you'll know that you'll get through it and, better still, become stronger, wiser, more resilient.
With the resilience advantage, stress can convert to personal growth, improved health, happiness and performance.
On the other hand, without resilience, prolonged stress impedes your immune system, your thinking and decision-making capacity and your performance. It drains your energy, reflects negative, depleting emotions and leads to serious disease.
I learnt this the hard way. Ill-equipped to cope with a personal trauma, I developed cancer. Eventually I joined the dots between chronic stress and health and, after years of formal study, I've developed programs that will guide you around the pitfalls of chronic stress. There's no need to wait until you're sick, before 'you get it'!
Underpinned by James Stockdale's 'never give up' approach and Joseph Campbell's Heros' Journey, my unique programs integrate life coaching, counselling, Mind Body Medicine and an international, evidence-based, stress management system called HeartMath.
If you're going through a stressful time, let me support and empower you on a forward journey to happiness.
“Retain the faith that you will prevail in the end,
regardless of the difficulties,
and at the same time,
confront the most brutal facts of your current reality,
whatever they might be.”
Admiral James Stockdale
Snapshot of Credentials
Traditional workplace wellbeing programs engage with employees during a crisis- crisis management. Reactive support costs time, claims, premiums and turnover.
I engage with executives and employees before a crisis to prepare for stress- stress management- to build resilience capacity.
2. Face to face masterclasses
Personal connection between the facilitator and participants increases interest and engagement. In this “age of stress”, personal connection is needed more than ever! COVID guidelines are of course applied.
3. Whole person approach
Stress relates to the mind and body, issues at work and outside of work. So, our programs look beyond workplace issues. They address all aspects of your life.
"The part can never be well unless the whole is well.” Plato
4. Unique, engaging, inspiring
We're programmed to learn through stories.
My programs are interwoven with scientific research AND wisdom of world resilience leaders including war hero, Admiral James Stockdale, and Joseph Campbell, who developed the “Hero’s Journey” model of life experience.
5. HeartMath stress management
I use evidence- based, HeartMath techniques that boost energy, improve performance, health and happiness. Practised in businesses, military forces, hospitals, schools, and clinics in five continents around the world, it really works!
6. According to the ancient Dao philosophy, authenticity is key to wellbeing. When our external world (yang) doesn't reflect our true essence (yin), we become stressed, unhappy and sick. By discovering your
Dao constitutions, you will expand your self-awareness and reconnect to your authentic self.
7. Personal touch
Unlike other workplace wellbeing programs with large, impersonal, data-driven systems and processes, Stockdale Wellbeing provides a professional, yet caring, 'human to human' service that, in itself, relieves stress.
Whether in a masterclass, coaching session or retreat, each and every client will be guided with genuine care and respect.
