Who we are

We are a small and agile company that offers a range of learning solutions designed to improve employee health and wellbeing. We believe one size does not fit all so our aim is to work with you to deliver what you need.

The Delphis team is experienced and skilled at facilitating learning workshops. With over 50 years’ relevant experience between us, and the qualifications to match, you can rest assured you and your staff will be in good hands.

In a Delphis workshop the emphasis is on active learning. At Delphis we believe that people learn best and most powerfully when they undergo activities and experiences from which they themselves draw lessons through reflection, sharing ideas, and trying out new ideas in practice.

Our facilitators always remain focused on the important goals of learning and enjoyment. They maintain a warm, friendly and professional atmosphere so that all attendees feel comfortable in engaging in tasks and in sharing their thoughts. They respond sensitively to any questions or conflicts that may arise and will allow delegates space to relax, network and reflect during breaks.

What we do


Our workshops encourage all attendees to share and reflect for a deep learning experience.

Online Courses

We’ve been designing and delivering online courses since 1999.

Events and Away Days

We offer a range of events that can be hosted on your site to promote employee health and wellbeing. We also have space in the historic city of York to host away days or away weekends where you can learn and relax in Britain’s most beautiful city.

Coaching and Mentoring

We provide a one-to-one coaching and mentoring service to senior executives and managers that focuses on positive psychology to improve individual and organisational performance through increased health and wellbeing.

Stress Audits and Consultancy

Employers have a legal responsibility to manage workplace stress. Delphis works with The Health and Safety Executive’s Management Standards to audit your company’s compliance and highlight areas in need of improvement. We have over 18 years’ research experience in the field of organisational stress.

Members of the Delphis team are also available to provide learning and development consultancy services on a short to long-term basis.
