Are you feeling drained from it all?

You are not alone

Are you feeling overwhelmed with your workload?

Are you snapping at loved ones?

Do you feel you're not coping as well as you used to?

Does this leave you feeling mentally exhausted and physically drained?

Not spending as much quality time with friends and family?

Finding life is not much fun anymore and certainly not the life you had envisaged.

The problem is, the longer it continues, the worse you feel.

With no end in sight, how are things really going to change if you’re not really changing anything?

This is how I can help you because I’ve been there too.

Having overcome work-related stress and burnout myself, this course draws from my own experience, as well as, extensive wellbeing learning over a period of 20 years.

I gently guide you with my proven ways to better manage your stress in a healthy and positive way.

“This course was the reset button I didn't know I needed.

I learnt how to make myself a priority again.”

Operations Manager for a PR business

Alex Gladwin

"We approached Dawn to support our business with the wellbeing needs of our team. She designed and ran the perfect 5 week programme, meeting all the objectives we set her. Dawn's approach, style, tone and knowledge of this subject area was 5* and it opened up the whole team to openly discuss all the different challenges we face and how we can cope with the day to day reality of our busy lives.

Every single member of the team complimented our business on the approach we took and having Dawn guide us through it all. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dawn to anyone looking for support and I can not wait to return to this subject matter with her very soon."

Account Director, Skout PR

Fiona Whyatt

"Dawn should be prescribed by the NHS to help combat the UK’s growing workplace stress endemic.

Her sessions really helped me think about integrating well being into my everyday habits.

Her sessions are engaging, interesting and really help highlight the importance of self-care and offer proven techniques for coping with stress!"

"The wellbeing program Dawn provided to us at Skout PR was absolutely fantastic and was full of worthwhile value! The tailored program was incredibly well-structured, insightful and provided plenty of opportunities for inward reflection to develop my own mental wellbeing further.

Approachable, kind and relatable, Dawn as a coach was tremendous and her knowledge in this area cannot be understated.

For anyone looking to better their mental wellbeing at work, I cannot recommend Dawn enough!"

Client Services Director, B2B Marketing Agency

Claire James

"Dawn did a series of wellbeing sessions for the company that I work for. Her approach was both serious and light hearted. She completely understands the issues that come with the corporate environment and her courses are well thought through to get people to pause, take stock and really listen to what their minds are telling them.

It was an invaluable course that taught me a lot about how I view myself and what this means to my worklife.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Dawn to any other business that is looking to put the wellbeing of their staff front and centre."

Your Instructor

Corporate Wellbeing Coach

Dawn Barnes

Hi, I’m Dawn!

I know first-hand how debilitating stress, anxiety and overwhelm is and how it seeps into all areas of your life. I also know how tough it can be to work your way out of when you’re not firing on all cylinders as normal.

Then there’s the real fear of admitting to yourself and others that you’re just not coping.

Having worked in Corporate Marketing as a Chartered Marketer for many years, I changed career a decade ago to work within the wellness sector. I now pride myself in delivering effective wellbeing programs and engaging online courses that are developed from academic learning, application from personal experience as a senior leader managing the impact and cost of staff mental health issues, and from my own personal journey in managing work-related stress and career burnout.

I bring a unique insight with a strong emphasis on practical, mindful ways to help people make genuine changes to their happiness and wellbeing, itself providing a direct positive impact on their career and their home life.
