Hear from QLD Ballet how Mental Health First Aid training from CDC has benefited their business
What some of our clients are saying…
“I have had the pleasure of engaging CDC for over 2 years and in looking for an EAP and mental health service provider to align with Northrop, there was no question that CDC was my first choice.
Inordinate rates of stress and mental health issues affect the Engineering and Construction industries so finding strong mental health advocates to provide nuanced, adaptable and approachable services is critical to supporting our people. We have found their services are not only thought provoking and informative but that they also provide staff and managers with realistic tools and strategies to be empowered to seek support and for us to provide a mentally healthy workplace. The training sessions provided by CDC have facilitated better conversations in our business and their EAP services have been crucial to supporting our staff through uncertain times and a multitude of pressures.
Our confidence in the CDC’s ability to provide excellent care and coaching when our people need it is without question. I highly recommend their services to anyone looking to engage an EAP provider or boost mental health awareness within their business.”
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Tina and the team at Career Development centre across two businesses for a number of years.
As our EAP of choice, they’ve consistently gone above and beyond to provide us with an excellent support service for our employees. So much so, that I have gone on to recommend them to a number of our Clients, Candidates or anyone in my extended network whom I’ve felt could benefit from connecting with them.
The team at CDC are down to earth, welcoming and ooze passion for what they do!”
“I would highly recommend Career Development Centre and Tina Winchester for Mental Health First Aid Training and other mental health and wellbeing consultancy services.
Tina has a wealth of experience and knowledge in the field and is such a warm and engaging facilitator. I’ve been told by a number of staff members that the best training they’ve ever attended was MHFA with Tina.”
“Ipswich City Council engage Tina Winchester and her team at Career Development Centre to deliver Mental Health First Aid training to our employees.
Although the content of the training is incredibly serious and emotional, Tina has the amazing ability to connect with many people and deliver the content with an engaging and relatable persona.
Feedback received from past attendees was how amazing Tina was and that the valuable tools they learned could be put to good use at both work and at home”
“The Australian Hairdressing Council has developed a great relationship with the team at the
Career Development Centre over the past few years.
From delivering a roadshow of workshops to our members in Brisbane, Sydney and
Melbourne, video content for our social media pages to presentations internationally all
interactions have been professional and efficient.
The team go above and beyond to ensure they understand our needs to provide the best
solutions, it’s a pleasure to work with them”
“We, at Seed Skills cannot speak highly enough of the professional service we receive from Sally and the team at Career Development Centre. Their provision of responsive, professional and effective counselling and support service for our employees in managing both workplace and personal stressors has been invaluable.
After using CDC as our Employee Assistance provider for over 12 months it was without hesitation that our organisation put the staff through their online mental health awareness induction. This program has been highly beneficial in ensuring the team can now draw on evidence based tools to help themselves and their team members. Not only has it given staff the vital tools, it has also helped create transparent and healthy conversations surrounding Mental Illness.
Mental wellbeing is so important and the support mechanisms we have in place with CDC offer security in knowing our staff are well cared for in a confidential and safe setting”
“I emailed EAP and asked for a session yesterday morning and they had me booked in for that afternoon straight away – so quick and efficient. I had an hour session from the comfort of my own home where I talked about the current situation I am in and how it was making me feel.
“Tina reflected on what I had told her and relayed it back to me from a few different perspectives, giving me a few tangible steps to go away and put into practice. I ended up having the best night’s sleep I have had for weeks after following some of her advice!
“Tina was very knowledgeable, laid back and personable, and she made me feel totally at ease – it was a really positive experience. It’s such a good service, and completely confidential.”
