1.Occupational Health and Wellbeing.  

This book bridges the gap between theory and practice, incorporating real-world case studies to show how organisations and leaders can adapt after the global unrest and uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and more recent challenges. Drawing from expert opinions across the world to highlight the current challenges and opportunities within this sector, it explores how these ideas can be effectively applied within the workplace.

2. The Wellbeing Workout; How To Manage Stress and Develop Resilience.

This book offers you an encyclopaedia of self-help options for you to adapt according to how you tick and to the circumstances you find yourself in at any given moment.

It addresses 60 different issues, and for each one provides a short ‘Spotlight’ to understand the issue, ‘Top Tips’ for dealing with it, and an ‘Action Plan’ to put those tips into practice.

Wellbeing is about managing the ebbs and flows of what life throws at us. It’s a mindset, a personal commitment and an ongoing endeavour. But if we adopt a focused and sustained engagement with this journey, then we’ll learn to embrace and reap the benefits of ‘being well’.

Here is a review of it:


3. Positive Mental Health.

Whether you work with 10 people, 10,000 people or just yourself, paying attention to mental health in the workplace has never been more important. We all face mental health challenges, regardless of our gender, age or sexual orientation, and too often we can be guilty for taking our mental health for granted. This book aims to build on the current progressive movement around mental health awareness and is in line with current thinking on mental health in the workplace. In this book, the authors provide employees with a resource to develop greater mental health in the workplace and provide employers with a resource to develop greater wellbeing amongst their employees therefore increasing quality, performance, productivity and overall business effectiveness.

4. The Crisis Book.

Andrew has published widely and has  published with Rick Hughes and Professor Sir Cary Cooper a book called The Crisis Book. This is available here:

It seems everyday we encounter a “crisis” or difficult issue of some sort that affects our work. Such difficulties can come from within work (eg, a difficult client or boss, missing a target or deadline, rejection of a proposal or plan, feeling undervalued) or outside of it (eg, personal issues such as family, relationships, debt, alcohol). All have the potential to trigger stress, anxiety…and lead to crisis mode.This practical book offers strategies and guidance to coping with and surviving a range of crisis moments and issues that affect our ability to perform at work. Written by expert coaches, the book helps anyone to develop a series of competencies in order to help us manage crisis points and improve our personal resilience. This book is part of the highly successful Concise Advice series 

 5. The Handbook of Workplace Trauma Support:

Traumatic events, such as accidents, verbal abuse, violent attacks, sudden deaths, or suicides, in the workplace are certainly not common, but they do happen. An organization may also find itself caught up in wider scale events such as natural disasters or acts of terrorism. All of these changes to the status quo can create confusion and chaos, or potentially trigger organizational paralysis. The International Handbook of Workplace Trauma Support provides a comprehensive overview of contemporary standards and best practice techniques for organizations that draws from the latest research findings and experience of clinicians, academics, practitioners, and other leading authorities on trauma support from around the world. This global perspective allows for a far greater range of support and intervention options to meet unique scenarios and workplace resources.

Coverage includes such topics as the history of trauma support, legal and business imperatives to manage trauma, models of trauma support, the latest developments in the field, post–trauma support, and applications within organizations, including the military. A variety of practical tools, case studies, and checklists enhance the discussion of research and best practices. This is an invaluable reference and essential reading for those seeking to minimize the impact of trauma on individual associates and the greater workplace.

Andrew’s previous book is ‘Employee Wellbeing Support; A Workplace Resource’ which he has co-edited with Professor Cary Cooper and Rick Hughes and was published by John Wiley & Sons in March 2008. In the Foreword David Fairhurst, Senior Vice President, Chief People Office – Northern Europe Mcdonald’s Restaurants said
“…I consider this to be an important book. A book which will be seen in the years ahead as containing many of the ideas which defined the Fourth Wave of transformation. The wave which will finally put people where they belong – at the heart of the organisation”.

Recent reviews of this book have said:
“This is an extremely well-researched and referenced work that contains a wealth of information covering organisational and mental health issues in the workplace.” (Nursing Management, July 2008)

“Would be an excellent reference book for anyone studying this topic in-depth…Good value for a detailed guide to employee wellbeing.” (Nursing Standard, June 2008)

“In summary, this is a very readable book on a topic that has not traditionally been seen as mainstream OH, but which is becoming increasingly integrated into a modern OH service. Many OH physicians are working more closely than ever with psychological support services and this book provides a helpful insight into their services. Where relevant, the evidence base behind interventions is discussed. This will be a useful reference book for many OH physicians, particularly those working with larger organizations.” (Occupational Medicine, 2008) Read the full the review.
