Often life can feel frantic and chaotic, and we all face daily challenges juggling our work and lives. We want to support you to live a happy and healthy life, rebalancing the area that often gets postponed, neglected, or forgotten… You!
So where did Well+ begin? For me, this is a culmination of my own personal and professional journey. On the 8th March 2014, I took a very long walk with my sister-in-law, Jenny, to make sense of my world that had crashed around me. Two days prior, I was diagnosed with a very rare cancer for a woman of my age. I needed space to breathe, and the act of walking and looking out on the horizon gave me perspective.
With every step on that walk, I was quietly contemplating how I wanted to live my life, rather than my previous dress rehearsal that I had sleep-walked my way through. I turned to Jenny and vowed at that moment that I was going to set up a business and go on to support people that juggled life and work, without compromising their wellbeing. There had to be a better way, and I’ve found it!
Fifteen years ago I decided to continue dual running two professions in HR and Wellbeing. I loved both equally and knew the time would come when I could combine the two. In 2015 I stepped into the role of UK Wellbeing Manager for Vodafone. I shaped their Wellbeing Strategy, and the Programmes I pioneered with the support of the 100 enthusiastic Wellbeing Ambassadors I put in place and the fantastic health and wellbeing partners from the public and private sector that are still helping people today.
