Amybeth Hargreaves

In recent years, Amybeth decided to retrain and graduated with a First-class BSc (Hons) in Humanistic Counselling from the Metanoia Institute in West London.

As an integrative practitioner, she believes that change can occur in the presence of another who is accepting, non-judgmental, open and authentic in communication; someone who has a genuine willingness to understand the unique experience of an individual.

She sees her work with clients as an exploration of what hinders a person’s innate ability to transform. In this active partnership she aspires to encourage self-discovery and personal responsibility through the use of curiosity, humour, creativity, movement and somatic awareness.

Previously, Amybeth was an actor and creative workshop facilitator touring in the UK; she is also a qualified swimming teacher. She loves bringing her teaching and creative skills to the Vector Equilibrium programs to help people turn down the volume of their natural stress responses, build resilience and ultimately feel empowered. Thus, she has found her partnership with Vector Equilibrium to be complimentary to her own therapeutic ethos.

Our approach

Vector Equilibrium’s interactive programmes provide participants with simple and effective techniques allowing them to think clearly under pressure, take charge of life’s challenges and recharge their energy throughout the day.

Unlike most mental health, stress & resilience or communication & leadership courses that focus predominantly on awareness, our programmes take the learning of participants to the next level by providing science-based and scientifically validated self-regulation tools and techniques to reduce stress, improve health and wellbeing and enhance communication.

The tools and techniques we introduce enable individuals and teams to access deeper wisdom and intelligence, re-ignite their passion for excellence and growth, be more effective at problem solving, improve communication and increase personal and organisational coherence.

To ensure organisations and teams take the most from our training, workshops and coaching we recommend, where possible, that organisations take a ‘top down, bottom up’ approach. With that in mind, many of our programme are designed to provide differentiated content and training based on the seniority, role and competencies of employees within the organisation.

Why us?

Whatever sector you operate in, the majority of organisations face similar challenges:

  • Productivity
  • Mental Health & wellbeing
  • Attracting and retaining talent

We address these by creating and delivering programmes that include emotional awareness and response, cognitive function and the overall effect on physiology which helps individuals to deal with life’s pressures, form better relationships both in and out of work and respond accordingly in stressful situations.

Simplicity is the key to Vector Equilibrium’s programmes and the techniques we recommend.

  • Accessible & simple
  • Can be used in the moment and without anyone knowing
  • Science based and scientifically validated
  • Increases mental clarity to help individuals feel more alert and ‘in the zone’
  • They work!

Our programmes will help you and your team:

  • Take the charge out of a stress reaction anytime, anywhere and without anyone knowing
  • Take the intensity out of energy draining moments and re-set, enabling optimal functioning
  • Flow more easily through challenges providing an extra time window to decide on more effective choices – Ideal for making important decisions
  • Train the nervous system to sustain better coherence
  • Balance the mind and emotions to gain a clear and balanced perspective
  • Bring coherence into communication & leadership to ensure improved skills – at the heart of all successful communication is the sense that people feel they are being listened to and the individual speaks authentically.

Working with Keltbray Group, we delivered a 3-mohth programme to a construction team working on the enabling phase of High Speed 2 (HS2). All participating employees completed our recommended pre-and-post assessment, enabling an analysis of the success of the intervention.

The results of the programme were extremely positive with employees reporting to being more likely to feel appreciative and calm and less likely to suffer from stress or anxiety or to become angry. Additionally, after the programme employees were less likely to feel like quitting their job.
