Learning Bursts (1 hour) available via Zoom or in Person

 Our one-hour interactive workshops or ‘Learning Bursts’ explore simple and inspiring ways to help you and your colleagues thrive. Based on fundamental aspects of our daily lives, such as what we eat, the quality of our sleep and our stress levels, each Learning Burst focuses on how to make good choices from a self-care perspective. They offer practical tools and encourage habit changes to develop greater personal health and resilience, as we know this is the cornerstone to any progressive and effective business.


They are very popular because they are more informal and less structured than traditional training, accessible to everyone and slot nicely into the working day. You can choose from any of the learning bursts below or, for more impact, schedule one a month.

Working Together Apart

Working remotely or from home can bring about many benefits but is can also lead to 

feelings of isolation, frustration and challnages with maintaining a work/life balance.  Home working requires a different way of working and during this learning burst we  will provide information, tips and tools to support you when working from home. 


Leading People Remotely

Whilst many organisations had already made moves towards occasional homeworking arrangements, recent times has accerllated this process like never before. In this learning burst we look at questions such as 'how much contact is enough?’ ‘What do I need to do to keep the team focused on work tasks when so much is going on around them?’ and ‘How do I manage everyone else when I have so much going on myself?’ 

Building a Supportive Performace Culture

Nothing determines business success (or failure) more than workplace culture.Cultures can evolve and be changed. And when they are purposefully planned and executed they can lead to higher employee participation & engagement, pervasive peer support, managers that focus on both suoport & performance as well as better business outcomes. Whether you are a company starting your wellness approach or you have started but need some inspiration and help developing your approach & action plan this is the learning burst you need.  

Managing pressure and stress 

We all know what it’s like to feel stressed. Being under pressure is a normal part of life. This workshop is looking at the impact of stress, what it is and how we acknowledge it and what we should do about it if we find we are becoming overwhelmed too much of the time. We will look at some very effective habit changes and techniques that help not only to alleviate its negative impact but also prevent us triggering our stress response in the first place. 


Emotional health is concerned with how people think and feel, how they engage with their emotions, their ability to cope with life events and how they communicate with others. Emotional Health focuses on the positive aspects of our thoughts, feelings and behaviours and in this session, we will learn the important role emotions play, how to recognise them, why experiencing different emotions is essential, how to respond more mindfully to them and how to express yourself in the most constructive way. 

Sleep, relaxation and energy

This workshop addresses why sleep and relaxation play such a vital role in good health, cognitively, emotionally and in people’s general day-to-day ability to function. As sleep ‘problems’ are fast becoming an epidemic, we offer tips and tools to enhance the quality and duration of sleep and importantly, look at the effects of daytime routines and habits in affecting people’s sleep patterns. We also focus on the healthy ways to conserve and boost our energy levels throughout the day, improving our sleep-wake cycle.

Food and mood

People who are feeling below par, exhausted, anxious or unrefreshed no longer need to take a passive approach. There is much compelling evidence about the links between food and our nerves, brain and digestion and thus our mood. In this session, we explore some useful biology about the essential relationship between good digestion and our natural energy levels and emotions. We also look at particular food groups and offer some great tools to help people take back the control of how they feel.

Good posture

When I go through the most essential tools we have at our disposal to influence our health and wellbeing, posture is always forgotten, and yet it is so very critical for the optimal functioning of our bodies. Good posture is ‘the correct alignment of body parts supported by the right amount of muscle tension against gravity’ so in this very practical workshop, we consider both aspects; the alignment and the muscle tension, with easy exercises to do at your desk. We also look at the negative effects of bad posture, especially with so many people now sedentary for much of the day.


Mindfulness is a simple, effective and enjoyable way of being more present and aware.  It allows us to pause and focus on what is important. Whether it is carrying out routine day-to-day tasks or taking a break, this session is designed to illuminate the pragmatic nature of mindfulness and how it can be applied at work so that we feel calmer and more in control.

Mental health

This session intends to broaden people’s view of what mental health is, what it means to have a mental health condition and how we can talk more freely about it so everyone feels included, supported and able to live and work well. We will also look at the factors that promote recovery and wellbeing.

Imposter Syndrome

Most people experience some self-doubt when facing new challenges, but someone with Imposter Syndrome has an all-encompassing fear of being found out to not have what it takes. even if they experience outward signs of success.  It appears to be particularly prevalent and intense among high achieving professionals. Here you’ll learn strategies for combating imposter syndrome, building your confidence

and feeling more authentic.


This phenomenon strikes smart, successful individuals and often shows up at its worst after an especially notable accomplishment. Like any personality trait, perfectionism includes a whole spectrum of characteristics, some positive and some negative, that vary from person to person. We tend to characterise perfectionism as a negative trait in our culture, but research has indicated that there are both healthy (adaptive) and unhealthy (maladaptive) types of perfectionism.  In this sesssion you will learn how to objectively assess the helpfulness of your perfectionisum and discover strategies for to manage manage it so you can be the best you can be in your career without being limited by Imposter Phenomenon.
