Inspiring Inner Wellbeing
Building our physical fitness is something that is familiar to most people. However, it’s only recently that building our Mental Fitness and taking time to ensure that we are resilient, happy, stress-free, and working to our best mental abilities have become a shared focus.
Our approach to Inner Wellbeing is to teach clients how to build up their mental fitness health, well-being, resilience, and happiness with practical and quick tools, as short as just 30-seconds! Helping them to help shift from a negative to a positive mindset, to tame their inner critics, and be back in control of their minds.
Mental Fitness follows much of the work of Positive Intelligence and Shirzad Chamaine, along with positive coaching psychology, NLP, and personal development techniques. We offer a range of Mental Fitness programmes from 15 minutes to 5 months.

“Remembering who I am and having the confidence and self belief to activate her.” Chief Operating Officer
“Kate delivered a Mental Fitness Workshop to our management team in 2021, this was following the pandemic as we were keen to ensure we were supporting not only our line staff but also our management team on the back of a challenging year. The session felt very tailored to our business and our managers needs, as Kate had taken the time to speak to me prior to find out what our challenges were and where we were as a business and as a management following lockdown. The training was only for several hours but gave us all food for thought, it was good to take time out to focus on ourselves. I still hear some of our managers refer to the training and we have definitely used the learnings and self-reflections since. I would not hesitate to recommend Kate and would love to have her deliver more sessions in the future.” Lauren Richardson, HR Busienss Partner IHG
“I think when we looked back at our younger self, made me think more about what I wanted out of life had helped reduce my saboteurs as it showed me how grown-up life had changed some of my priorities to values that were not really me. I am working an what I really want from work/life balance the moment.” Hospitality Lecturer
“I am finding the work I am doing with you life transforming! I think I was totally ready for it, and it is not the only thing I am doing (have done) that has contributed to a really shift for me – but it is really helpful and has helped me start to change some very stubborn thought processes.” Manager
“Kate delivered a session for our group of Citizen Advice Bureau chief officers on the subject of wellbeing and how to look after our own wellbeing and that of our staff. The session was excellent and our group were really pleased that they took the time to participate. Kate’s delivery is friendly and supportive and her training and message clear and accessible. I would strongly recommend Kate to any individual, organisation or group that would like to explore a host of other leadership topics, in a safe space.” Gill Westwood, CAB Manager
“I have had the pleasure of working with Kate over many years and have been impressed with her knowledge and understanding of all matters around resilience, leadership and mental fitness. She delivers wonderfully inspiring and engaging workshops and is a skilled coach. I would very much recommend Kate.” Debbie Simpson, ICIPS
“The ability to have been able to gain an understanding of so many coping strategies when facing differing challenges. An understanding that allowed me to face challenges I have faced for such a long time in my life.” Managing Director
“It’s a game-changer. It’s a development programme based on neuroscientific research so the content is evidence based, highly practical and interactive. If you’re willing to go all in, you will gain valuable insight into your happiness and performance and learn practical life-long strategies that will bolster your resilience and your capabilities.”

WEllness Webinars & Workshops
Building your teams’ positive mental muscles
Learn how by improving your mental fitness and wellbeing can have a profoundly lasting change in being more effective at work, having better working relationships and feeling happier. Discover that by building and strengthening your three core mental muscles will make it possible for sustainable positive change.
It’s all about fitness of the mind. You can go from feeling under pressure and anxious or no-sense of direction, to finding more ease-and-flow as well as a clearer purpose and focus.
Whilst webinars are typically one directional, these sessions will invite attendees to share their thoughts in the ‘chat’ area of Zoom or Teams to make this not just an informative but also an interactive session. Our workshops are highly interactive and provide practical tools to not only understand about positive mental wellbeing, but to also learn practical and easy to use tools in a matter of minutes.
Here are some of our current Mental Fitness and Wellness offerings:
- Our One-hour Mental Fitness Webinar will give your organisation a starting point onto understanding how their negative mindset can have both a physical and mental impact on their personal wellbeing. They will learn what are the three core mental muscles needed to move from that negative to positive mindset, showing them some practical tools.
- In the Half-day Saboteur Awareness Workshop, we take a deeper dive into the impact that Saboteurs have on how we operate at work, the lies they tell us which impacts on how we create relationships, work effectively and manage our levels of stress, as well as wellbeing and happiness. Your teams will be introduced to the science of Mental Fitness, some of the tools that can be used anywhere and anytime and discover how to disarm their own Saboteurs (inner critics).
- Our one hour or 90 minute Stress busting Workshop again combines the understanding of our survival vs success brain and how we are in control of how we respond to others and our situation – either negatively or positively. After focusing on the impact of stress we will be spending the majority of the time in discovering practical and personal methods for dealing with stress.
- Our one hour or 90 minute ABC Wellbeing Plan for Resilience workshop, teaches you to understand where stress and anxiety come from and shows you how to prepare for stressful moments and to discover practical mindful moments techniques.
- Sign up for our self-paced E-Learning Mental Fitness HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), where over 5 days you will be introduced to 5 different practical mindfulness techniques, to a positive reflection along with additional support material.
Helping you to understand how to tame your survival brain in order to think, feel and act from your success brain.
Not sure if these quite fit the bill? Get in touch as we have more ideas than time and we’ll be happy to create a Mental Fitness workshop or webinar that fits your current wellbeing or resilient needs.
