Within the context of organisational change, stress, fear and anxiety dominate the individual landscape. Given the elevated levels of stress, fear and anxiety many individuals find it difficult, if not impossible, to engage meaningfully in any organisational change effort. The reality of stress, fear and anxiety within organisations does not seem to be integrated into traditional organisational change literature. Moreover, there appears to be a paucity within the organisational change literature in terms of the reality of stress, fear and anxiety, as well as the manner in which organisations might approach such elevated levels of stress, fear and anxiety. This compelled us to find acceptable methods to reduce stress and anxiety, alter perceptions and increase individual awareness and consciousness. This paper follows the first paper “Human Reactions to Change” and offers alternative intervention technologies which can be applied within organisations undergoing change. Within organisations, these alternative intervention technologies can all play a role to assist individuals towards eventual vicissitude.

A healer is not someone that you go to for healing. A healer is someone that triggers within you, your own ability to heal yourself. This is what Tonja is to me.
