I am the founder of Thrive and Well. I have a background in health and wellbeing centred around mental and physical health. My expertise and training include nutrition, mindfulness, stress management, yoga and self-care, all of which inform my training sessions.
I am an accredited Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England Instructor and an active Mental Health First Aider which enables me to provide practical insights to illustrate the course content. I ensure that training courses are accessible so no prior knowledge or experience of mental ill-health is required. Attendees will be supported to increase mental health literacy, reduce the stigma associated with mental ill-health and increase their skills and confidence in how to support others who may be experiencing mental ill-health.
I've worked for various government organisations such as the House of Commons, Greater London Authority and the Equality and Human Rights Commission. I have management level experience and thus a good understanding of organisational policies and procedures and mental health at work. I am also a Mayor of London Enterprise Adviser and provide careers support to a south London school.
I have delivered training to a range of delegates from corporate, public, education and third sector organisations such as Deloitte, Allianz, Vonage, NHS, Beckmead Family of Schools and Bromley Council - please see feedback below.
“I really enjoyed the course and learned so much from it. It has confirmed my wanting to train to be an instructor. Thanks Esther for facilitating our group so well - you were so calm and so knowledgeable. (Dec 2019).”
