Gabrielle Young has been facilitating groups and working with organisations, teams and individuals for over 25 years. In the last 5 years she has developed and run resilience and well being programmes for organisations. She is passionate about walking the talk and has re-orientated her life to ensure that she manages her own well being effectively including being in nature, connecting more with others and doing life enhancing work.
Jules Garland works in the disability field and has a son with ASD in his early twenties and so has direct experience of the pressures that can lead to feeling stressed when parenting a son or daughter with a disability. She has a public health and health promotion background, has studied Positive Psychology and is a trained teacher of Mindful Self Compassion. She has been thrilled to see the positive impact of her own well being journey on her son.
