Who I Am

Wellbeing Workshops

Talks & Resources

Tailored sessions & materials

My mission is to help you develop strong wellbeing foundations to live a better life.

I have delivered workshops and given talks to audiences across the UK, from schools to conference groups. I have spoken on stage at the London Olympic Park, with young activists undertaking training, and to groups of students.

From employee team-building/development to student enrichment, I provide tailored, engaging sessions to help you and your group discover what wellbeing means. Working together and individually with actionable activities and exercises, you will build your own toolkit for better wellbeing.

My work is driven by my own personal experiences.

In November 2012, days after my 21st birthday, my Mum died. It was the worst day of my life, but it also woke me up. For years I’d been battling low self-esteem, overwhelm, and frustration with how my life was going. I tried over and over to build healthy habits, set good routines and structures in my life, and be happy. But it never worked. I realised that life was too short to keep going round in the same circles, I had to do something different. I vowed to really commit to the life that I wanted, and make changes to get there. I realised I needed to actually put in the work to improve my wellbeing, instead of waiting for things to get better.

So I set out on a journey. I called it Project Grad (I was due to finish university the next year) and decided to document it on a blog. I tried different routines, habits, and apps. I wrote about how I was feeling, and shared ideas for self-care and finding motivation. Eventually the blog morphed into Your Book Begins, and I realised that alongside going on my own journey, I was passionate about helping others. I didn’t want another young person to be in my position and feel completely alone.

Through research, practice, and refinement I have built my own wellbeing foundations which I want to share with you. These are strategies, techniques, and activities which I have built into my day-to-day life to help me navigate the challenges and joys of this thing called life. I believe that you can live a more fulfilled, balanced, and positive life if you set up your own foundations to support you.

Don’t just take my word for it, here are some quotes from previous participants

I really enjoyed the well-being workshop, I found it to be very useful and very informative. I will certainly use the tips and methods learnt as part of my everyday life in the future, when and where I need to use them.

The session was very engaging and most of the young people said that Jenny’s was their favourite session from the whole programme!  Jenny is a professional and engaging youth facilitator who I would definitely recommend to any organisation looking for a relatable mental health advocate.
