Learn the basics of what mindfulness is, the benefits and how to begin your own practice.
This workshop provides an introduction to the practice of mindfulness, an attention training practice, which enables you to develop a sharp, clear & focused mind and enhance levels of emotional awareness and wellbeing.
The practice is grounded in neuroscience and Emotional Intelligence, and is now widely regarded and practised by some of the world’s leading figures and organisations. This introductory workshop explores the underlying science of attention and how mindfulness benefits the brain, examines its role in counter-acting stress and improving performance and shares the benefits for wellbeing, emotional balance, communication and leadership.
This workshop is intended as a practical introduction to getting started, and will incorporate some basic exercises such as short meditations and gentle mindful movements. Participants will also find ways of practicing mindfulness and cultivating awareness in everyday life.
This workshop is delivered by Dr Barbara Mariposa, Associate at Work Well Being. Barbara is a thought leader in the field of wellbeing, emotional intelligence, mental health, mindfulness, leadership, presence and the science that brings all these things together.

Join us to understand the crucial role of sleep in overall health and happiness and learn takeaway tools for how to sleep and rest better.
Lack of sleep has far-reaching effects on physical, mental and emotional health, on performance and on the impact we have on those around us. And yet, these days it has become a commodity that people too often may boast about getting by with too little of.
As part of this workshop we’ll look at what’s happening in your body while you’re sleeping and the health problems that can arise if this isn’t happening. This explores the science of sleep, examining the role of our circadian rhythm, sleep cycles and the nervous system.
The workshop then examines what gets in the way of a good night’s sleep, looking at both environmental and lifestyle factors. It then looks at the suggestions that can support good quality sleep and explores what we each can do to maximise this natural function of daily life, including breathing techniques, wind down rituals and managing our energy throughout the day
This session will be delivered by Anna Beckman, Anna is a psychotherapist, counsellor and an expert in sleep. She has trained as an individual and group therapist and is passionate about her work in organisations where she endeavours to bring about a culture of self awareness and compassion within which organisations and individuals can prosper and flourish.
Curbing Your Sugar Cravings
28th September, 12.30-1.30pm, Leary
Join us to understand the truth about sugar dependency and consumption and ways to make better food choices.
The average UK adult consumes 58.8g of added sugar per day from a variety of sources when the recommended maximum amount is 30g per day. Unfortunately, excess sugar consumption can lead to health issues including weight gain, Type 2 diabetes, acne and tooth decay.
Added to that, many of us experience cravings during the day to help us manage negative feelings such as low energy, boredom and sadness, which find us turning towards sweet treats such as chocolate, biscuits and fizzy drinks. These foods can be high in sugar, giving you an immediate high but leading to an energy crash later on in the day (in addition to the negative health effects).
This session provides an understanding of the negative health effects of excess consumption; helps to identify sources of sugar, teaches practical ways to reduce cravings and sugar consumption and find out about healthier snack options.
This session will be delivered by Adria Wu and Ollie Oshodi. Adria is a Natural Chef trained at Le Cordon Bleu and College of Naturopathic Medicine, she is Founder of Maple&Co and a presenter on Sunday Brunch. Ollie is a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach passionate about supporting individuals to make healthier choices, lead more balanced lives and improve overall health and wellbeing.
