At the first event, we heard from Gin Lalli. Gin is a Solutions Focused Therapist who helps people regain control of their lives by explaining the science behind how the brain functions and by employing the latest evidence-based techniques of positive psychology and neuroscience. She’s also known as the ‘Stress-Bucket’ girl…if you’ve seen her signature presentation you’ll know why! 

In the session Gin discussed stress and mental health in the workplace, how COVID19 and lockdown have changed the way we work forever and what the future workplace will look like.  She also looked at why we feel anxious, stressed or depressed and what we can do about it. COVID19, lockdown and remote working have now made mental health a top priority and we must turn awareness into action. We were delighted to have Gin speak at our first event, thanks Gin!

📌 Practical Wellbeing & The House of Four Rooms – Karran Bonner 

At November’s session, we covered the concept of the House of Four Rooms with guest speaker Karran Bonner (Brightside). Karran is passionate about all things people and performance-related. She runs a people development business focused on enhancing wellbeing, health and happiness.

The aim of the session was to provide you with some practical wellbeing tips and tools that you can utilise straight away. Karran will share with you techniques that can help you control elements of your wellbeing. The concept of a House of Four Rooms is based on the four different areas of health including: Mental, Emotional, Physical and Spiritual Wellbeing. You will tend to lean more towards one of these areas than others and the theory is that we need to go into each of these rooms at least once a day to be fully in balance. All will be revealed during the session.
