Organisational Care

What is Treat?


Therapeutic Relaxation and Enhanced Awareness Training, or ‘Treat’, is a unique program that offers self-care and organisational-care support programs that have been successfully delivered since 2014.


‘Treat’ is more than a well-being workshop: it is an evidence-based service that makes sense.


Treat™  offers LIVE (in-person or Zoom) sessions at work that are tailored to assist staff, teams and executives to re-calibrate, re-energise, and re-engage during their busy and challenging work days.


These programs have been extensively evaluated and shown to reduce stress and burnout and improve mindfulness.


The core Treat program is the 6-8 week Treat Foundation program designed to help staff develop inner resources to improve wellbeing.


The 45-60 min nourishing Treat Rest & Recovery sessions are designed to reduce staff fatigue, stress and emotional exhaustion.


Also available is the shorter  15-30 min TreatCollective Pause™ and Re-Set sessions, designed for teams to re-set and re-engage, especially during episodes of high stress and demands.


The longer 1-2 hour Treat  Immersion sessions are specifically tailored and designed for corporate education and leadership forums.

Since 2014 Treatsessions have been  regularly delivered at Alfred Health, Eastern Health, Northern Health and Melbourne Health to over 5,000 staff.


Our aim is to always do good.



More and more workplaces are realising the impact of mental health problems at work on their people and productivity. Encouraging early help- seeking is one way to promote a mentally healthy workplace. This is where Mental Health First Aid can help.


Mental health first aid is an evidence-based training course which gives your employees the skills and confidence to have supportive conversations with their co-workers and help guide them to professional help if needed. It has been shown to increase knowledge, confidence and helping behaviours, and reduce stigma.


Jo is available to deliver this training to your organisation as the perfect supplement to TREAT.

An individual’s mental and physical health is their most precious asset. This asset needs to be considered and protected, both by themselves and the organisation they work in, long before any signs of burnout or vital exhaustion appear.


Stress spreads.

How we feel has a ripple effect on those we work with and those we care for. This is known as emotional contagion. Our personal and professional wellbeing plays an integral role in the safety and satisfaction of our teams and clients.

Change care


Anticipating, embracing and implementing change in an organisational setting can create anxiety, emotional exhaustion and overall fatigue. Whilst organisational change consultants are trained to identify and manage these outcomes amongst the employees and teams of an organisation, the wellbeing of leadership teams and executives driving the change is often overlooked. If we can bring compassion to this process, there is more space for acceptance, growth and creativity. This allows leaders to be authentic and feel secure. By taking a moment to stop pushing forward, we can draw out the resources that are already present.


TREAT believes that in order to obtain optimal organisational change, all stakeholders in the change process deserve to be uplifted to overall wellbeing and experience joy at work. To support this, we offer two wellbeing programs for Leadership and Executive teams: Change Readiness and Change Optimisation.




TREAT Change Readiness

Your organisation has determined a significant organisational change needs to occur and you are one of the leaders tasked with leading it. Are you ready?

The TREAT Change Readiness Program works with executives and leadership teams who are anticipating guiding an organisational change or who work within a climate that embraces frequent change. Led by Dr Ashlee Linck and Jo Gibbs, the TREAT Change Readiness Program marries traditional change readiness theory with innovative wellbeing practices that result in holistic change readiness for your leaders and executives.


Enquire to learn more about how Dr Ashlee Linck and Jo Gibbs can enhance the change readiness of your leadership team and, ultimately, help you deliver optimal organisational change.




TREAT Change Optimisation

TREAT knows there is no “quick fix” for wellbeing in the workplace. But there are practices and methodologies that can help.

Your organisation may be either initiating a corporate change or mid organisational change and your leaders may be showing signs of emotional exhaustion, reduced morale, higher absenteeism, and/or burnout.


The TREAT Change Optimisation works with your leaders though each stage of the organisational change process to proactively manage their mental and physical welling at work and beyond. By caring for your leaders and equipping them with tools to manage their overall wellbeing, you will have a leadership team who is performing optimally and delivering lasting outcomes.
