the heart of wellbeing: Purpose, Performance, Resilience
The School for Wellbeing is all about helping individuals and employees lead their best lives - full of meaning, with resilience and where they are empowered to bring all that great performance means to them to the fore, in all areas of life.
I started the School for Wellbeing in 2016, whilst I was still working full-time as a change management, culture change and employee engagement consultant.
My background as a business psychologist working with clients to inspire and create true behaviour change, combined with over 20 years' corporate experience, and my training as a coach and breathworker, showed me there are some key things that need to be in place to empower people to thrive and grow:
• They need to have depth and meaning in their lives
• They need confidence and emotional intelligence to effectively manage being in community with others and to perform at their best
• They need the resilience to bounce back when things get tough
I founded the School for Wellbeing so I could help.
get set for success in your quest for wellbeing
You might be an individual seeking support with stress, worry or grief; perhaps wanting to build your emotional resilience or confidence so you can feel more successful at work and achieve more; or you might even be looking to make a dramatic change to create a new life that feels meaningful and purposeful for you.
You might be working in the HR department of a small or medium-sized business, wanting to help your teams manage stress and avoid burnout, to build their resilience and soft skills so they can improve their performance at work, or to support them as individuals to grow in specific areas where they are facing challenges.
These are all areas that I can help with - through my training, through my focus on using the bodymind connection to create change, and through the personal experience of having been there on the ground as well.
creating change starts with awareness
I believe true wellbeing is not just a passive state, but a result of awareness, choice and action – we have to ‘do’ wellbeing in order to ‘have’ wellbeing.
As well as asking powerful questions to get to answers that may not seem immediately obvious, I help my clients discover often life-changing insights through exploring the intelligence of the bodymind connection. These insights bring new possibilities, enabling long-lasting and powerful change to occur. They allow employees to improve their performance and avoid burnout.
I like to work through what I call Compassionate Presence - a place of deep listening, alongside trust, challenge and accountability, where I hold a safe space for the unseen or previously unknown to arise.
If you know you need a different approach, one that capitalises on every aspect of our intelligence, through the bodymind connection, then please get in touch.
my credentials in the world of wellbeing
My training encompasses formal academic study, professional qualifications and the more esoteric and alternative.
What makes me unique is my ability to blend all this together into a unified whole. My clients benefit from a multifaceted, bodymind based and holistic approach to wellbeing, one that is flexible and able to be tailored to meet the demands of their specific situation and areas where support is most needed.
