Soul Focus Provides Mental Health and Wellbeing Education

Offering specialist mental health training and support to help normalise mental wellbeing, reduce stigma and improve the way you live, learn and work. Helping parents and families deal with emotions and mental health to live happier lives.

What is Mental health?

It’s something that we all have.
However, there is often a stigma attached to it.
There shouldn’t be.
Taking a soul focused approach means that we look at mental health in the way that it affects us emotionally, mentally, physically and socially.
Our mental health affects how we think, feel and act and helps determine how we handle stress, relate to the people around us and make our life choices.
Maintaining mental health is crucial to living a balanced and fulfilling life, from childhood to adolescence and all through our adult lives.

Soul focus helps parents, carers and educators with their mental health awareness.
By educating those working with children we have a ripple effect and create lasting change.
This enables you and the next generation to feel empowered and in control.
Assisting you in business so that you can relax, knowing that you are supported, ensuring your team are happy and productive.

 Staff are undoubtedly the most important asset that you can have as a school or business.

Providing them with mental health training will result in the following:

Less time off – reduced sick days

Improved wellbeing culture as a whole

Better performance – presenteeism is less likely
Increased capacity to deal with the stress and pressure of a teaching role
Improved awareness of mental health will result in better resilience amongst staff, retention and employment longevity.

 

Why me?

I’m a qualified mental health instructor, who has been there and genuinely cares – this means that after training with me you will have recognised Ofqual regulated mental health awareness and first aid for mental health courses and leave any course with actual life skills you can apply from the minute you finish, and not just another textbook to gather dust on a shelf.

 

Having been brought up around alcoholism and domestic abuse/domestic violence and lived around mental ill-health, I have previously struggled with my own mental wellbeing at times as a result. As a teenager, the adults around me were ill-equipped to help either themselves or me – and I now provide recognised education and training around mental health and emotional wellbeing to prevent that cycle from continuing. When people can support themselves and reach out to others – it makes a difference. 

 

When 1 in 4 will have a mental illness at any point in time, and 1 one person dies by suicide every 40seconds, “they didn’t say anything” or “I wish they’d reach out” is no longer enough, when you could be the person to reach IN and say something. I provide training so that you can live bravely, and be soul focused on the people around you and living life to the fullest.

I’m a parent myself and have a background in volunteering with youth organisations and charities – I understand that everyone has a unique set of responsibilities, pressures and experiences, and so training needs to be flexible and teach approaches that work within your life.

My approach to mental health is from a position of experience, empathy and understanding. I want you, your staff and the children you work with to benefit from sessions full of honesty, candour and openness. You will be able to be real, raw and exchange ideas that work – and are right for you.

Removing the stigma from mental health happens when you can look at it as another piece of the pie – alongside your physical, emotional and financial health.

We are all human, and we all deserve to feel at our best. Possessing the knowledge to be able to look after this side of our lives, and those around us – and being able to pass that knowledge on… and build on it – is what I am passionate about.

For soul focused, fun, passionate and interesting training – you won’t regret working with me.
