I have been running workshops on wellbeing for over a decade now providing support, education, tips, and practical guidance across a wide range of areas including stress, sleep, posture, vitality, diet, exercise, communication and relationship skills, and more.
The aim of all my workshops is to educate, empower, and engage so that attendees leave the workshop with a clear action plan, knowing which of the tips and new knowledge they are going to implement first.
The background and recommendations in each workshop are evidence-based. My approach to wellbeing is based on understanding the key drivers of our health and emotional well-being and how to optimise both through education on our basic physiology and our psychological drivers. I provide bespoke practical suggestions and tips on how to incorporate and implement the key learning from the workshops into daily routines which create the best possible all-around wellness at work rest and play.
My workshops can be tailor-made to individual briefs both in terms of content and time length. They can be online or offline, with most clients preferring one-hour workshops. I offer 45-minute workshops and topline 30-minute workshops too.
I also offer a pre-course questionnaire with the one-hour sleep workshop and one-hour stress management workshops. These help gain insights into the company’s levels of sleep hygiene or stress levels with highlights presented as the introduction to the workshops. They also provide the perfect backdrop for the workshop and never fail to demonstrate the relevance and need for the workshop to the members of staff based on their collective results. I offer a deeper dive into holistic health and performance in my ½ day wellbeing workshop, as well as one-on-one support for employees within the company.
With all the latest sleep science and bio-hacks this workshop explores the importance of sleep for mental and physical wellbeing and for improved focus and performance at work. I cover my top ten sleep tips explaining the evidence-based research behind them and go through the breakdown and principles of my recommended relaxation techniques with an option to do one or two as a practical. I include a step-by-step guide on how implement the perfect, bespoke sleep routine to maximise sleep quality and quantity, getting to sleep more easily, delivering the best possible mental and physical rejuvenation.
Stress Management Workshop
My stress management workshop is all about creating simple wellbeing routines to maximise productivity and create a healthy work-life balance.

I guide how to implement change to optimise a sense of wellbeing and enhance overall health and productivity both inside and outside work.
I bring over 20 years’ experience as an Osteopath to my posture workshop. I begin by illustrating how the challenges of our modern sedentary/tech-based lifestyle compromises our posture and demonstrate how to correct this during the practical component of the session. I provide recommendations and practical guidance on how to set up an ergonomic workstation at home and in the office, for the best sleeping postures and optimum mattress/pillow combinations for spinal support, the benefits of different exercise regimes and the ideal combinations of stretches and strengthening exercises for perfect posture.
This workshop covers all the essential aspects of health and vitality with evidence-based recommendations on nutrition, exercise, and rest – including sleep, mindfulness, and relaxation techniques.
