About Us

The Lisa Duffield Centre makes wellbeing easy

Based in Harrogate and founded by Lisa Duffield, a leading expert in the enhancement of mental and physical wellbeing.

We provide a comprehensive approach to the treatment of behavioural, emotional and psychological issues.

Within the corporate environment, we introduce health and wellbeing benefits into businesses to bring teams together and build morale with the ultimate aim of reducing work-related stress.

Away from the workplace, we work with individuals to help them overcome personal challenges in their lives.

“Nearly 1 in 7 people experience mental health problems in the workplace.” *
“Evidence suggests that almost 13% of all sickness absence days in the UK can be attributed to mental health conditions.” *
“Women in full-time employment are nearly twice as likely to have a common mental health problem as full-time employed men.” *
“It is estimated that better mental health support in the workplace can save UK businesses up to £8 billion per year.” *

For Business

“How to help improve productivity, staff morale, loyalty and retention”

A healthy employee is a happy employee, and a happy employee is a productive one

Corporate wellbeing is being adopted by many major companies and corporations who realise the very real benefits of investing in the mental and physical health of their staff.

Poor staff wellbeing can have an impact on the bottom line through costs incurred by absence and employing temporary cover, reduced productivity and missed business opportunities.

We can help you create a wellbeing strategy from initial consultation to analysis of results, which will enable you to make changes that can bring a positive work outlook for your staff.

As an independent organisation we have discretion, integrity and confidentiality that will enable individuals to talk freely to us about aspects of their lives.
