Training ‘sounds’ right for college staff


Cornwall College Saltash is offering a number of alternative therapies to help and support any of its staff suffering from stress.

According to research, increasing numbers are suffering from stress in the work place, which in-turn has an impact on staff morale.

The first of the new sessions was a sound therapy class. Head of Saltash College, Margaret Butfield, said: “We discussed how we could be proactive in offering support to our staff, enabling them to switch off from the stresses of the working day.

“With distraction therapy, even if you are not too sure on the therapy it provides a distraction at that specific time and enables you to focus on something else.

“We want to help our staff have a good work, life balance. The Sound Therapy session proved very popular with our staff and next we will be holding a laughter yoga session.”
